I'm sorry if I did not type a longer story to make you forget that you haven't got anything else to do then to respond like this.

Maybe I should have written:

I need some parts for my landcruiser, Now I've looked on the internet and found allot of not what I'm looking for.
I was wondering if you guys found a good online parts supplier. As there are so many, I thought I ask the experts.
Perhaps I've should have done that.
But especialy for you, I do it now.

Depends on the parts I guess
Try Terrain Tamer for filters and other stuff

No no no no Corolla,
I don't think I even fit in 1.
But I am for 99% sure a Corolla will fit in the back of my 1986 HJ61.

I bought the car at 280.000KM with almost a complete service history. (Even got the receipt of the airco that is fitted at kilometer 6) I'm the 3rd owner since new and it's in a very good condition. And I'm hoping to keep it like this.
I'm looking for some parts to take spare on long trips.

The better half drives a RAV4.

My other toy is a FJ45, body in good shape, mechanical a disaster.

Thanks for your info Graham

Hi Cruiser Crazy there are a few good suppliers. Don Kyatt is not actually an on line Toyota parts supplier but I have phoned them and ordered parts a few times and their prices and delivery times have been very good.

Also Neil from ROODOGS 4WD SPARES on eBay is very good (my own experience only) with a good range of fairly good quality aftermarket parts at reasonable prices.

I hope that is some help.

I use "roodogs4wdspares" and "4wdparts" and "4x4world_au" on ebay and can usually find what I'm looking for - however I've got a 40 series HJ47 - so it's great for that

Depending on how current your Tojo is will depend on whether they've got the parts for it... you didn't say what model and year...

Cruiser Crazy,

I have to use mail/internet order for parts due to where I live.

I believe ebay is a good place to buy parts (eg roodogs) that way you get to give feedback. If you get mucked around by a non e-bay seller - your feedback is not made public.

I also have a HJ61, I use roodogs for most parts and have been very happy with their service - i usually pay extra for express post.

I order genuine parts from toyota themselves (coolant).

Have fun

Just had a look on roodogs ebay store.
He has enough to completely rebuild an HJ61.

I thought i would never say this, but:
I think it's better I give my credit card to the missus



Thanks for the info you'all

Good afternoon Cruiser Crazy.
For Toyota Parts when i need them i use Roo Dogs from Adelaide in SA, or 4WDParts in West Australia, Ian Johnston on
08 9470 6668........0419 951 227...once i needed a small part for the 5speed box, so i could fit the hand break to the back of the box, and then shorten the tail shaft, Ian flew the part from Cairns in Qld, over night to Perth, and then down to Bunbury, in two days from when i ordered, and paid for it, if they havent got the part, they will find it for you, also they are on the EBAY, and email addres is www.4wdparts.com.au And they also do British parts.

Good luck in hunting down the part for the cruzer

Cheers for now.......tojobill...from Bunbury.

Why would I have a lend, I get my parts from Toyota, I used to get some throw away parts EG: filters but not any more, I have 3 100 series in the front yard that I rely on for my business, why would I compromise them on after market bits.

Cheers Steve

No problem with that Steve - just guess some of us aren't prepared to pay Toyota "genuine" prices for them....

I wasn't having a go at you

Put it this way .... my brother Matt M(ACT) was quoted a higher price for an 80 series door mirror from Tojo parts than what it would cost me to get a 2h rebuild kit from roodogs... and they wanted him to pay for the cost of shipping from their Melbourne distribution centre to their Sydney distribution centre coz they were out of stock... he told them where they could shove the mirror sideways...

Fair enough if you're running a business, however most of us don't have the option to write off against OpEx...
