Did a 100 ser come as a dual cab? I dont think so all were 7 or 8 seat wagons The others had different model designations like 105 etc Some were converted into utes of varying seating capacity
I had a 100ser 2005 GXL TDI and it was a full wagon.
WHERE HAVE YOU LOOKED, IF ANYWHERE
Look on Lcool. you have to join for free but is all things Toyota by model and type
There is a 100ser 2003 TDI auto with good additions 190,000 for $37000 on there in the classified.
That would be really low for one of them.
Links wont work unless you are a member so cant do that

As Tom said. Toyota did not make a 100 series dual cab. The only ones in existence would be low volume or one off conversions. I am guessing if someone hands over the folding stuff to convert one, they won't be parting with it cheaply.

You could buy a 100 series Landcruiser Wagon (they only come as a wagon), take it to Creative Conversions in QLD where they will turn it into a dual cab. The cost is roughly $20,000 for the conversion. You could get the chassis extended at the same time.

Alternatively, you could search the web for ones already converted.

Had a look on Gumtree and there's a few examples there.

This one in WA looks interesting, solid axles, but retrofitted with a 1HDFTE. Also has an alloy canopy on it, but further down he's trying to sell it too.



Company I worked for had a number of 100 series cut 'n shut into dual cabs by Creative Conversions. They do a good job on the cab, but we had dramas with wiring behind the cab, and refuelling both tanks, especially the rear tank. Eventually got it all sorted, but at some expense. Ours had 500mm added to the chassis which makes it a very useful vehicle, but that also added other dramas. Easy to overload(3 bikes, drum of Avgas 'n other stuff) but the weak point, for us, was the retro fitted centre bearing..........had to renew them every 12 months or so.

If you find a good one you'll be laughing.......

Thank you for the replies. I am aware it is a conversion and had a look on the net but they are pretty hard to find in NSW. I thought one of these or even a converted 200 series would be the way to go. Was looking at one of the new dual cabs ( Navara, Ranger, BT50, Triton etc ) and they all seem to have problems either now or further down the track.
Thank you

I had the same problem recently you look on the various vehicle forums and you see problems. The vehicle with the least problems by a fair margin was the D-Max, so I brought one. Time will tell if I made a good decision but I am very happy so far.

The latest HiLux is all new and not proven. It was high on my list, if fact I waited several months until it was released before deciding. One test drive was enough for me to cross it off my list.

I think they have been pulled back by the pack of fancy utes and had to compromise and copy ..They look like cross between Dmax and Ranger come Amorok.Bells and whistles are fine until they malfunction.Anyways if you see a broken down Silver Hilux 2010 come and say hi and bring a beer ha ha ha.

I may be wrong but most of those vehicle have been for sale for some time which brings me to a conclusion that yes they might be a hand vehicle to buy at the the other end when it comes time to sell is when things turn pear shape

why I am not sure but I think there is a limited market

not being negative just looking at your options and what is out there

I am getting my 200 chopped this year.

The trouble is the waiting time, the earliest I can get one done is by August and the other 2 companies that I have spoken with have a wait list of September and January next year.

I am led to believe that Creative have 15 on the go at anyone time.

I guess that the 100 series is out dated now and everyone wants a 200.
