Re: GLEAM

Sadly I don't think they will stop until all green lanes are closed to motor vehicles. :evil:

Re: Limited Slip Diffs... ?

Theres always loads of Shogun rear diffs with factory lockers on ebay.

Re: Big Build Time folks - Vit-Lux Little Tank - 3.0TD

Shame about the engine only being the 2.4. #-o I went from that engine to the 3 litre. Quite an easy swap but the engine mounts are slightly different. This might help if/when you fit the 3 litre:- :-bd http://www.landcruiserclub.net/forums/entry.php/5-70-Series-3-Litre-1KZT-Engine-Conversion-2-4TD-...

Some one mentioned it was a bit quiet on here so I thought I'd show you what I've been up to lately. Having emigrated to Australia almost a year ago, a chance meeting with some one on a 4wd club trip over here led to me working at Piranha Off Road. The guy who owns and runs Piranha (my boss) is a Su...

I've had treadblocks come away, as well as a whole tread sections statrting to peel away (Not recips, never tried ...
