    What’s the go with mods and qld rego? My mrs has been offered stupid money to work there and I would prefer to keep my car.
    It’s a 2 door JK with a semi loud exhaust, auxiliary fuel tank, bull bar and winch, flat fenders,
    33s that stick out a bit but I can fix that easily, has 2” lift that is meant for a 4 door so ends up around 3” lift when
    no load but sits well when loaded.
    Where I live you can pretty much do anything to a car as long as you don’t annoy to many people

    Is it just a simple rego swap or will it be a pain in the arse to sort out. I don’t want to loose the second fuel tank nor the 33s

    Yep, will need a safety certificate to transfer to qld rego. Most places are fairly easy going if you are registering for yourself and not selling. The only things that sound like they wouldn't pass is the tyres sticking out, and an aftermarket fuel tank requires a mod plate.

    Its stupid money really, even if it is neat and nicely done. Surely you could build an LSA powered 80 series for that sort of money and save enough money for a few years worth of fuel in the process.

    Shouldnt be surprising though, theres cunts down here trying to sell 80 series cruisers with 500k and smoky 3F's for 5k.

    I'm just glad that after 10yrs of owning our original 1HD-FT HDJ80R, it's worth more than what I paid for it back then.
    Should easily get 50k for mine, if a repowered fetches 33k.

    Was there an official reason the 105 never got the 1hd? Surely they'd be worth more than a F40 now if they were produced.

    Crazy! I didn't see that coming. Move over GTHO's collectors here come the 80 series.

    I guess people see an 80 as the best model and the 1HDFTE as the best motor and seeing as though you couldnt buy 1 new that way some people will pay it. A 100 series with 500k on it and a 1hdfte is still about 26k so not yhat much more assuming they sold it for closer to 31k.

    The 105 wasn't a priority for Toyota, it was sold in limited markets and generally lower grade trims. Apparently Australia was one of the few countries got 105 wagons, ie models with horizontal tailgates rather than the barn doors which Toyota refer to as vans.
    Another reason I've heard was Toyota had a policy of only offering up to 2 engines per model. Hence the 100 having the 2UZ-FE and the 1 HDT-FE and the 105 having the 1HZ and 1FZ-FE. Since the chassis are different they're different models in Toyota's view.
    Yes I know the 60 and 80 series had 3 engine options.

    Whilst we are talking Toyota’s what’s with the front track being wider than the rear? Surely the guy that passed that off was drunk

    Front track was widened to fit the V8...

    Most FTe swapped 80s have the 79 series and not the 100 series version... the best of the breed is the 100 series... but the best of the best is the 80 series 1HD-FT - I'm not biased at all

    This is common for a lot of Front IFS and sold rear vehicles.

    It's so you can be like everyone else who has a Toyota, they didn't want any of the models to not have a glaring fault you need to spend 25k+ fixing.

    As South said, it was an engineering mod to fit the V8 diesel. I am guessing the engineers would have liked to widen the rear track to match but the accountants said no. The long wheelbase models (Troopy and ute) don't drive too badly with wide wheels, but 76 wagons on skinny are appalling, especially on rutted dirt roads.

    The one which only has to be 120mm tall to cause an 80 series to pick up a single wheel and go no where up a moderate hill because no traction control or cross axle diff locks.

    How many diff locks and traction control did the TJ come with from the factory in the 90's?

    Ok cheers. Makes sense but looks retired when you’re sitting behind one.

    A non Rubicon TJ in stock form is pretty average offroad as well..

    I took by D40 550 up to Glasshouse last weekend after being inspired by the boys YouTube at 4WD Action.

    Despite it being excessively slippery on the clay bits with the rain about we had a ball. Suffered a bit of panel damage on a particularly hard section that I got up that none of the other vehicles wanted to attempt. I wasn’t expecting much capability from mine but we were all genuinely surprised by its capabilities with good lines and letting the traction control do its thing in LowLow.

    Can’t wait to get up there again.

    Nice work - some of the tracks up there are legitimately tough.

    Oh, you're one of those blokes that can't drive off-road without the car doing all the work... makes sense now

    Oh so you're one of those blokes who thinks that the best off road vehicles are ones that can't make it up moderate hills and need to find chicken tracks.

    Again I need to point out how much Marty is obsessed with talking about landcruisers.
    Don't worry, thats just the self-preservation instinct, in my experience you can safely ignore it.
