Re: UK owners

Hello

There don't seem to be many active members in the UK despite quite a few registered. Do no meet at the moment. I met up with another owner up in the Peak District but have't made contact with anyone else.

As for parts you should be able to get parts from any Toyota dealer though I have't tried yet. Otherwise they can be sent over from the US. I'm using K&N filters all round and Millers Oils from Opie Oils. I used to buymparts from a company in the Netherlands, All-American Imports, but couldn't get hold of them last time I tried so not sure if they are still operating, if they are then they are our best source.

That's a shame, I'm the other side of the country. I think there is a member who is that way but not seen them on here for some time. They were asking about UK regs.

Well dang! Was hoping to catch a FJC while I was here. Having a great time on a soccer tour w/ my son.
We were at the community shield game on Sunday, had a match on Monday, Old Trafford tomorrow, and a match tomorrow night. Then to Manchester City for a tour and a match.

Sounds like you're having a good time... If you'd picked Norwich City I'd be there with my search dog Zero and my FJ. But not quite the Kudos of Man. City

Engine & powertrain parts should be readily available in the UK - it's basically just a ruggedized Prado 150.

Yes but the 150 is only available here as a diesel.
