The 98 gxv was the first, then the t/d, then the v8, not sure but now i think the 1hz GXL is independant aswell, it was the only model in GXL to be solid front diff in the series 2

Dozer, does that mean that all the 1hz std cruiser's have coil front ends.
Thanks Dave

Yes,

The v8 and the turbo diesel 100 series have IFS whereas the poverty pack 100 series (standard 1hz diesels) have rigid axles.

And also another difference between the two is the bullbars are NOT interchangeable.

Gday Tom
We tend to use the term 100 series loosely, as the rigid front end cruisers are infact hj105 model designation, or a 105 series.
Thet are basically a 80 chassis with a few differences to body mounts.
Compared to a v8 or t/d 100, which are hdj100 or uzj100 models, and as you have said have a completely differenct chassis and independant front end, so bars are not interchangeable. nor are wheels (100 has different offset to 105)

Dave im not up on latest models, but when the v8 cruiser superceded the 6, the only live axles were the 1hz in GXL and the stds.
Think the std would still be solid diff, hope the GXL is still too, but have heard it has been deleted or got independant... as i said not sure.
Know a guy who bought a gxl 1hz and put a 1hdft motor (95 on 80 series) in it to get the best of both worlds at a cheaper price to the 1hdfte/independant.

Technically the 100 series has allways been IFS.

The 100 series is the IFS model as sold in 4.2L TD and 4.7L V8, while the 105 is the live axel models sold with the 4.5L petrol or 4.2L diesel, both in the straight 6 cylinder motors.

The 100 (IFS) is available new in Sahara and GXL formats in V8 petrol and Turbo Diesel. Was sold in GXV V8 from 98-00, then droped and replaced with the TD model.
The 105 is available new in GXL and Standard trim in 4.2L diesel. Was sold in GXL, RV and Standard trim from 98-02 in both 4.5L petrol and 4.2l diesel. The standard trim petrol model was dropped in 00.

Also the post 8 '02 models have a different front grill and so bullbars from the previous grill models will not fit.

The 100 (IFS) also has a different rim offset, and a different width between the chasis rails, so none of the external accessories for the models can be swapped between them.
