the rig was bought on saturday. i look forward to driving it this next week to figure out what all needs a fixin'.

list to date...

fuel guage is all over the place. it has a new tank and guard. ill trace down the wiring to see what gives. i wonder if they reused the sending unit.

hood cable is shot. i found an area down by the headders where the plastic was damaged and im betting its too rusty to slavage in there. the 10 bucks for a new one wont break the bank at this point.

clunk in the back over speed strip style bumps. it has that shock bushing sound to me. may slap some bilsteins on anyway. you guys like bilsteins or OME's? or other? ive always had good results with bilsteins on other make trucks. the rig has rover HD springs (1-1.5" lift i believe) but the PO used OE shocks. not sure why he did that, but it rides real nice. im sure there will be lotsa PO mysteries to come. the guy had it since new.

i wanna keep the LR radio, but the sound sucks. anyone just swap speakers with success?

amsoil. do you guys recommend swapping to synth, or keeping the dyno. its got 43k on the clock, and older toyota seals seem to give up the ghost when changed from dino to synth. any experience with that here?

Follow-up Post:

he also gave me a set of OEM mudflaps with mounting kits. put them on or keep them off?

There's really no complimentary way to say this, but you are a dirty bastard.

ill be honest. this thing is sweet, for the most part. little items that a 2 bannana mechanic can fix.

valve tap (owners assesmet of the y-pipe crack was wrong). some play in the drive train (seems to me, never drove one till now so i dont know whats normal, i cant seem to get the gear changes smooth), needs rear shock bushings, new ac cable (ac is cold) and new hood latch cable. fuel guage is bonkers, but theres a brand new tank and skidplate back there. nothing i wouldnt expect out of 43000 mile english engineering (had an mg. everything is a little querky in england).

the oil checked good, and when i pulled the plugs, they were the originals, but had "worn" as the should and evenly across the cylinders.

other than that, this thing is soooooooo cooooooool. and it rides really good for live axel rig. better than my 86 fj60 did, by far. i didnt expect it to be as solid as toyota, and smoother too.

im gonna hate to part with it.


ill post more pics when i get the chance. i need them to be in at least a field or something. driveway shots are too lazy for this rig.

i noticed that too. not original though. when i asked him, he said he got them at NTB of all places. in fact the receipt is in some of the stuff he handed over, ill look when i get home, to see the date of purchase. i dont know if it was recent, or 2001 when it went to storage.




oh yea, he also gave me the original Land Rover recovery kit, still in the box. bag, gloves, snatch block, chain, tree saver, and directions. pretty cool. hes looking for the video he got with it, showing how to off road.

funny thing is, i just replaced all my recovery gear this summer. so all this crap will stay in the box.

Why are you selling it so quickly? Didn't you just buy it a few months back?

i coulda flipped it immediately, but i always wanted one and i really tried to live with it. its a great truck in allot of ways... but... its uncomfortable. im 6'4 and this thing is made for shorter people. add in the interior roll bar, and i cant drive it for long w/o a cramp somewhere. whats the point of an adventure rig, thats too uncomfortable to adventure in? im sure ill regret it, being as i dont need the money. also, i live in pittsburgh, and we seem to have a facination with salt. this thing will last 50 years in texas, but a couple seasons on the road here, and itll be toast. so, that leaves me with a rather pricey rig, that i cant drive too far and i have to garage 4 months a year.

what id like is a diesel defender 90/series short wheel base, with the bulkhead removed/moved for tall seating, aftermarket buckets to support my right leg, and a galvanized frame. that'd prolly work much better for me. it just wouldnt look as cool. these are these coooolest looking suvs out there. (im open to partial trades for something that lights my fire, i guess)

its a sucky decision to make, really, and im kinda sad it aint workin out. but its the most reasonable path. (i feel like im dumping a HS sweetheart)
