    he actually seems to like it, but doesnt want to like it. the aussie chap in the youtube review has a after market bull bar on his defender. the dealership that tryed to fit the winch admitted they had never fitted one and it may take a couple of days... for me also the early 90s is the peak of...

    Choosing Pre filter for Safari Snorkel

    the toyota topper you have pictured is for the 70 series. unless your rig is churning out big HP it will be fine. its the best looking one imo, the oem 80 series topper is one of the ugliest things known to man kind.. the ram air effect is a myth on snorkles, iirc you would have to be doing...

    Old Diesel

    Put it in a oil can/sprayer and use in place of wd 40 etc on the landcruiser. A bucket full is good for soaking rusty/oily parts in.

    80 Series - 3F to 3FE Swap

    nice looking 80. you wont need any more height than the 80 as you lift the engine off the mounts and draw it through the front of the vehicle. the centre of the front clip is removed. along with the headlights, rad etc.

    FSM brake circuit diagram needed.

    not sure if it even exists.. all of my FSMs etc are on my old laptop which is virtually unusable. need to get all that stuff swapped over. what i really need to know is the circuit split diagonal or front/rear. im thinking maybe front/rear as two lines go into the LSPV then one comes out and...
