    Gavo's Round 2, Toyota 76 Series Landcruiser Wagon, 2010


    Good Points
    This one isn't rolled like my last one!
    Seriously though its got a huge amount of power, 4.5 turbo diesel V8 is sensational, and reasonable on fuel!
    Its got cruise control!

    Bad Points
    Little primitive, not a lot of creature comforts for the price!

    What mods have you done?
    None YET! Its got reasonably new 2" OME suspension and ARB deluxe bar. Will fit all my existing draws, fridge slide, center console, UHF etc when i get it!
    Its all ready got 3" exhaust fitted, and Toyota aftermarket satnav stereo!

    What mods are on the list to do?
    Diff locks and rear bar will be first two things straight off the bat. Was hoping to land one with factory lockers like my old one, how ever didn't work out

    Why did you buy this vehicle?
    To replace the old one i had!

    How often do you go offroad?
    pretty often!

    What will your next vehicle be?
    Plan on keeping this one!

    Yeah sure is aftermarket, nicely installed though, was a selling point as I've never had it and always wanted it!

    Nice looking unit, look forward to following the mods.
    Bloody shame about the old one, didn't really look that bad either.

    I actually considered going to qld to look at one mate. Then got lucky and one turned up right near work!
    I think it wasn't till 2012 the gxl came standard with lockers.
    I've budgeted for aftermarket ones. Sort of haha.

    Nice one Gav. Does it sound as good as your old one?
    Do you mean to say "plan on keeping this one upright."

    Im sure there may be a few on here waiting to see these pics. Its sad to see a neat truck written off.

    I just had a thought Gav. Are you going to strip the good bits off the new toy and squeeze them into the charade?:D

    Congratulations on the purchase mate. I so wish one was around when I was in the market, but maybe next time. Get some new boots on her with a massive negative offset to give some more stability. Looking forward to the finished product.

    Happy bog-cogging.
