Ok, gone from Landrover Zone, into Toyo Country, Have both at the moment, But must say the Toyo 100 series is a surprise package ,in the way its built!! Irrespect of what motor, when you lay underneath one ,you get the message!, Even with the IFS and probs known They are still a tough machine in comparison with all the soft road competion thrown at them!!.

Niissan included..LOL.


No I'm not pi@@@d!!, or taking sides, just general observation,

AND HOPE i don't get converted one way or the other!!....lol.

Cheers Axle.

They are good thing, and realistically they will go anywhere. Both engines are brilliant, I do have a soft spot for the diesel though. I prefer them to the new 200's we have at work, they really feel huge and haven't grown on me yet. Very comfortable long distance vehicle, I actually prefer the IFS.

But the LandRovers have Character..........feels like you are driving a piece of history. Aluminium body, strong chassis, great suspension, and unbelievable fuel economy.

Aren't you going to miss that?

Welcome to the Tojo Club Axle. I am very happy with mine.
You may have a change of opinion when you visit the cashier at the petrol station. My 100 series V8 has an addiction to petrol stations, I have to take a strong hold of the wheel when nearing anything that says Shell, BP or Caltex or anything closely related to unleaded petrol.
Enjoy it.

Regards John

Congratulations Axle - hope you enjoy it.

I have had mine for a bit over 4 years since new. Only problem so far has been the oil pressure gauge which had to be replaced at the last service.

All the best,

Paul

G'day Axle, My V8 100 series cruiser is off to Autocraft in the morning to get a Heavy duty 50mm lift which will actually be a 75mm lift in the front and the rear, includes heavy duty torsion bars,new 75mm crossmember,wishbones braced for extra strength and welded,upper A bars strengthened by welding,with long travel shocks all round... This cures the unreliable IFS problem I'm told... Axle I'm about to head up to Birdsville/Eyre creek to test my new suspension set , so stay tuned for a trip report ... All the best ..

Axle,

Is this the same vehicle that required an engine rebuild at 177,000 km?

Cheers,

Jim.

Axle,

That's terrific, I'm assuming the dealer came good on the warranty.

Nothing quite like the smooth power of a V8.

Cheers,

Jim.
