So I have done it. Was a nissan man but have gone back to a 100 series GXL Tojo. I am leasing the vehicle and the winning quote are supplying a steel genuine Bbar (partly because I did not specify a brand and the lease companies prefer genuine products). Can anyone tell me if there are high lift jack jacking points on this bar? I would have prefered an ARB bar but they want $1700 for a winch bar and toyota is charging $1100. I do like the look of the TJM outback bar but if the gen bar is ok I will not put myself through the grief of changing the quote again (and I am scared to ask the price). Any opinions would be appreciated.

Why worry about it as any decent bar can be fitted with jacking points for very little outlay---most are aftermarket jobs and are very reliable.Make sure they are not those cheap tacked on jobs that stick out beyond thebar that are illegal anyway.

Dont worry about the jacking points with a tojo as they are compatible with hublifters. These are far superior to jacking points as they are lower to the ground and dont require you to lift the suspension before lifting the vehicle.
A standard hi Lift is next to useless with jacking points. On flat ground a 100 series has around 30cm of suspension travel and with the jacking pint around 45cm off the ground this doesnt leave much of the jack by the time the wheel is raised let alone get some decent lift.
Extrications i have done using Hi lifts and hublifters all have been using the top 3rd of the jack with some (with hangups) using all of the jack. These recoverys would have been much more difficult/immpossible using jacking points

David,
Went the v8 due to price. I have always had diesel 4wd's but considering unleaded is cheaper that diesel, fuel consumption is 5l/100km less in the T diesel (according to the stickers on the winderscreens). So if you say unleaded is 10c/l cheaper and as I am on a lease fuel is about $1/l ex GST and less 10c/l discount it would cost $4.50/100kms more for the v8, so $1125 over 25000kms. The TD is $10k dearer and incurs luxury tax and I think services are required more frequently and are more expensive. That is why I went a v8 and I will get rid of it after the 3yr lease.

Yes it was an auto. I currently have a 3.0TD Patrol Auto and it is good. We took a new Patrol 3.0TD Auto for a drive and then got in a new TD cruiser and it was so much more comfortable and quiet. The little 3.0TD rattles a fair bit. There was a few grand in it but now the 100 series have rear air-con and 6 stack MP3 and I did some research on resale and the red book recons a 3yo cruiser sells for $3k more than a 3.0TD patrol.

My mate has a 2yo v8 auto and he recons he gets 13l/100 on the highway and 17-18l/100 in the city. I am not picking the vehicle up for 1 month so will endevour to let you know once I start driving it. I managed to get the toyota dealer to supply a TJM outback bar for the same price as a gen one.
