General Comments:

With an expensive start and a total rebuild this 60 series is very cool.

As things went wrong I remodeled this vehicle to suit me.

It handles responsively and and is multi adaptable, as it still has its sunroof, seats 5,and can be slept in as well.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I love the description you've given of your personalized FJ60. Do you have photos available? I'm particularly interested in the roof raise and general appearance of the vehicle.

I am about to start re building the ARB Bullbar, as we hit a fence Strainer Post and trashed it, on two wheels there for a bit!

I have also added a Huon Pine and Jarah wooden Dashboard, very cool.Cant stand Plastic,or silicon chips.

Also made a double Petrol/water Gerry Can (20 litre)holder on the back.

One tough, reliable, four wheel drive hill climber


Nothing yet. I have done a lot of much needed maintenance such as hose and belt changes, tune up, fluid changes.

General Comments:

If you're looking for an off-road vehicle that you can use on road, this is it. Plenty of room, decent on road ride, very poor gas mileage, but hey, it's a Land Cruiser. Reliability when you are miles away from anything is what counts most.

What's your gas mileage? I can't get more than 10mpg out of mine... driving granny style.

Properly tuned you should only get about 12-15MPG. Maybe a little more if you really tweaked it. If you have larger tires than stock make sure you account for that in your mileage calculations. If you have 31" or 32" tires then ad about 10% to your speedometerreading and the same for the odometer.

Make sure your timing is correct, good basic tune-up, and if your carb is really old, clean it out or rebuild it.
