Hi Uncle,
The answer is yes. Every year model; so long as it isn't a GXL. Or maybe you were asking about GXL's and hotdfa somehow knew that, in which case his answer is right. If you were thinking of buying, it would be cheaper to buy a standard and upgrade the seats, tyres etc to GXL specs than to buy a GXL and down-grade it to part-time 4wd, but since I don't know the reason you're asking the question I'll shut up now :)

Hi Bware, you guessed it....we're looking at buying soon.Seems to be a varied assortment of Cruiser's and Patrols on the market at present, we aren't in a hurry and will go for the standard model if we do go for a cruiser.
Will go for one thats already tricked up a bit too.
cheers and thanks for the feed back unc

I have the standard model, and can recommend them. The barn doors are easy to load stuff into, and the vynal interior is easy to clean. The seats can be replaced with GXL ones, you can add things to your hearts content (or the size of your wallet !) Sure, you don't have electric heat warmers but that's just one more thing to go wrong in the bush. :))))

Agree footloose, I have one too but how do you fix the bloody squeak that comes from those doors. Some times I feel as though I going to go batty listening to them

Ah yes, that bloody squeak! Sometimes you can't turn the music up loud enough. I use vaseline on all the locking devices, seems to work pretty good and doesn't leave grease on your clothes if you happen to touch them.

The later models do not squeak, some little plastic bits on the catches and you remove the rubber stop on the large door. Parts all available from Toyota.

Have fun

G'day Uncle, just a quick question as to why you want one specifically with FWH...

If the one you buy has ABS, you cant put free wheeling hubs on and keep the ABS working....keep that in mind, otherwise any FWH from any earlier cruiser will fit an 80 and disconnect the front drive from the wheels.....these OEM hubs are actually stronger than what you buy through Marks 4x4....or simply buy a dx as stated earlier....KISS keep it simple silly...
