Ive just purchased a LC 200 Turbo diesel, and have been told you will require an engineering report for the vehicle if I put a twin twin rack on the back ??
Can anyone shed some light on this, and if anyone has one can you recommend a brand..

Hi Charlie, who told you you need an engineering report - ask them why they said this? What is a twin twin rack, do you have four kids, why can't they sit inside, sorry couldn't help myself. Can anyone reccomend a brand of what - engineers reports or twin twins?
Try reformulating the question with enough detail for someone to give you a decent answer.

Gee Mikee, that's a bit rough. I understood what Charlie meant. So he put in one word to many. We all make mistakes.

As for the question I can't answer but ,bought a new 76 series cruiser wagon and I just put on a duel wheel carrier no engineering report the only engineering Report I needed was for the 170L long range fuel tank but I got that done at the 4wdrive shop, first I've heard of that needing to get complianced for duel wheel carrier .Lifted it as well did not need to be complianced for that.

G'day Charlie R

I actually don't own a 200 series Land Cruiser so I suppose my reply can only be taken as being "my two bobs worth".

Kaymar Engineering ~ Victoria, produce a brilliant bumper bar wheel carrier assembly for the 200 series, they would have all the legal side of ADR complience covered on a national scale.

ARB ~ TJM and no doubt a host of well credentialed after market accessory suppliers and fitters would be able to give you all the info you require ~ before making a purchase.

G'day Charlie, I just bought one too and have a single RHS wheel carrier put on, they put extra LED lights lower down on the bumper so as the lights can be seen as the wheel blocks the normal lights.

Hope that helps

Cheers

Colin

The advice re engineering was probably alluding to the vehicle's legal payload, being the fuel, the driver and other people, towball download from a trailer/van and anything else you put in it or on the car. That twin wheel carrier and the second wheel* are all part of that payload (less anything removed for the project). Add two people and your trip goodies and that might be it. Whatever - sums need to be done.
*presume you don't intend to tote 3 spare wheels :-o).
