    It wouldn’t take much to get your GX setup nicely, they are really great trucks and we’re actually dying to work on one... send me a PM.

    I like this story. Sorry the fj60 I had been texting you about got sold to somebody. There will be more.

    Leavenworth Skier's Latest Automotive Folly - More Land Cruisers???

    Bleu’s coming along

    The guys at TLCS do excellent work!! Joe and LVS spent the day teaching me all about knuckle services. In summary it’s a mess and plan to be covered in oil.

    They are tossing around the idea of classes on a Saturday teaching people how to wrench on their rigs — if today was anything like what they plan to offer you mags should jump on board.

    How many mags would like to take a class on knuckle service? SkiLyft for some crazy reason wanted to learn how, so Joe and I put the eager dentist to work. I think he has a few more pics to share.

    Selling a couple trucks for customers:

    Diesel JDM Prado. Think it’s 91 or 92. New tires, very clean in and out. 214 kilometers or 132,000 miles.

    We will be performing a knuckle service on it and give it a full inspection. Don’t think it needs anything besides a knuckle reseal but we will double check and fix as needed

    $18,000

    1970 FJ40 with 5.3l Vortec V8 and nv4500 5-speed.

    This truck is a hoot. Original paint Patina. We had the frame off on this truck and repaired any rust, then powder coated the frame and sealed/raptor lined the underside. Left the visible paint as is. Went through all wiring, drivetrain, axles, etc.

    5.3 with 5 speed is insanely fun to drive. Runs good, tons of smooth power. Saginaw power steering. New brakes throughout. New tires, and Yes it will do burn outs.

    Owner put 3500 miles on it since the conversion and wants a 60 series.

    This is a great base as a builder for a full restoration or just keep it as is - a really fun driver. I took it out around the block and came back with a huge shit eating grin.

    $30,000

    Send me a PM if interested

    FWIW I'm 6'-6/7" flat footed and once I pulled the dead pedal out and did the landtank seat brackets I have a Stoopid amount of leg room in my 80.

    We're working hard at bringing on brands to stock and sell both at our shop in Sandpoint and online. We'll have access to everything from these companies, not just Land Cruiser or even Toyota stuff.

    First couple of brands we're working with:

    ARB/OME (We are working on our opening order with ARB. It's a fairly high minimum for a small shop like us. If any mags need ANYTHING from ARB please let me know via PM or text. We will make it worth your while if you get in on the first order with things like discounted installation or free freight. Talk to me.)

    You could put together wheel bearing kits like cruiser outfitters sells. I just installed one on my hundie. $100, was complete, and made the job easy.

    This thread is gold...and makes me miss the 1973 International Scout II.
    Something about the wrinkle in your forehead tells me there's a fit about to get thrown
    And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun
    It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
    and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.

    You’re right, you need a front locker, a fridge and some BP51s.

    Hey, I've got about 24-24.5" of center hub to fender. I think it's a 4ish" lift. I believe 418/864 springs. Currently running OME L shocks. Are the BP51s long enough stroke? I thought I read they are okay up to 3" heavy lifts.

    Ha. Got a fridge. The whole argument I'm having in my head is the 89 runner needs a front locker but im planning on eventually getting rid of the long travel ifs and doing a sas but it'll be awhile. Also want to put an arb in the front of the 05 runner but the whole reason we got the 89 is so we dont have to wheel the 05 so hard......


    Goddammit I need 2 front lockers! Now to come up with a few grand...

    Think I found them in your color - had to reach out to our extended network of junk collectors. Since they'd color match would be an easy install for you. Sent an email and will send more details when I get them.

    Word, the rear heater in those is great for winter backseaters, and for ski boots.

    Shout out to LS, The Land Cruiser Shop and LS's biz partner Joe.

    Stopped in during a little road trip for some service and problem diagnosis and was impressed. Joe's a great guy, knows his shit, gives a shit and his custom builds are incredibly beautiful. Very fair prices and obviously caring service, even with someone like me who knows just enough to be annoying around someone who actually knows what's up.

    Thanks guys. Great to see y'all and the shop. I'll be back.
