1997 Land Cruiser (FZJ80)
https://www.fjcruiserforums.com/forum...-fzj-80-a.html



A lot of folks have asked why i switched from the 80, so here it goes.
I was looking to get new tires, 35" MTRs to be exact. If i was going to go to that size, i'd need to regear to 4.88s, if i was going to regear and have to pull the axles, i need to repack and replace the bearings, WHILE i am doing that, i might as well replaced the rotors and bads, and the rear calipers look like they could use some replacing sometime in the near future, so might as well get to that too. All of this in total, would still have left me with a truck that i wouldn't feel comfortable towing more than ~3K lbs or so with IMO from having towed light loads with it. So, later on, when i finally have enough money saved to get a boat that weighed closed to 5Klbs, i'd have to get a second vehicle just to tow it with.
This towing issue coupled with the price of new 35s, regearing, repacking bearings, new brakes, was going to be a lot of money as well.


On the drive home from Georgia:





Day1:
295/75/r16 BFG All Terrains installed.
Remove running boards.
Remove sun roof wind visor.
Pressure wash and scrub floor mats, vacuum.
Grease the 6 zerks on the drive train.
Un-plug blown subwoofer (need to get speaker to replace, as it sounded great before it blew )
Get new Rain-X rear wiper, fix "saggy wiper syndrome"








Running boards on.


Running boards off.

Looks like a damn fine start. Always liked the gray used on the LCs

Looks good. I don't know why you sold your 80 series. I guess I'm partial, I like them more than the 100's.

Looks great Layton. I can't wait to see it on Labor Day weekend because I know it won't look anything like it does right now.

Layonnn, This is exactly my future build! Good luck, I've subscribed and will be watching. Did you ever see the 100 build with the SAS (by Slee Off-Road) in Overland Journal? There is a PDF of the article online. Here is a link for the build at Slee with a link for the PDF from Overland Journal!

Re: Layonnn's 100 Series 2001 Land Cruiser

Aw, Layton. I hated to see the 80 go, man. There was just something old-school about it.

Good looking 100, though. One thing to watch out for: Looks like from the photos that the front lower link mounts may need some armoring, like what Digger makes for the FJ rear links. They look like they hang down a wee bit. Future mod!

Congrats on the new rig! Oh, just noticed, new BFG's! (still has blue whitewall protector on the inner sides ).
