Go anywhere, any day


Not much to report on so far. Have replaced all drive line oils, wheel bearing grease just to be on the safe side.

General Comments:

This was a stock short wheel base when I bought it. It went anywhere with the little skinny split rims, have now fitted 31x10.5/r15 Toyo m/t tires. Will blow land cruiser away, will go anywhere.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
