Found this off road video on Youtube last night. It’s made by a company called Trix Offroad Car Accessories and Services – long name, but good video they made over there at the Philippines. The white LC200 looks friendly enough to use as a daily drive in Europe. Can I have one please?

Many have strong opinions about the way the LandCruiser brand design is going. Further from work, and closer to a american SUV. But with a few mods, the car is still a serious capable off road automobile, as you can see on these pictures from Australia.

EBC Brakes GD7436 for LandCruiser V8EBC Brakes makes a good set of disks for your LandCruiser V8. The sparepartnumber is GD7436, and can be bought through their network of resellers. Check out their website www.ebcbrakes.com for details.

The matching breakpads for the mentioned EBC brake disks is DP41815R (EBC Yellowstuff KEVLAR Brake Pads). It’s a good brake upgrade kit for your LandCruiser, in case you need it for stopping heavy loads or other breake-heavy operations.

Depending on your region, EBC usually ship great instructions for replacing both disks and breakpads, with both pictures and detailed descriptions.

Right now I am working on a Nissan Patrol (.. yes, I know, its not a Toyota) where we will be using a similar model brakedesign.

This is a short video from the german Toyota site, of the LandCruiser 200 series doing a mild offroad track. Traction looks good, even on stock road orientated tyres. The model sold in Germany is VDJ200, with the V8 turbo diesel engine. I think its great that the German Toyota team, have spend the time on making these videos. If you have enough time, try browsing through some of their other videos – including some with the old 40 and 60′s series LandCruisers. Youtube Channel Link

TJM have released news about their redesigned Bull bars for the Toyota LandCruiser 200 series. It’s the T3 Steel model in the images you see below. If any of you readers have one of these models on your LandCruiser, please send me a picture and review, so we can get a little more data. The TJM T3 Steel Bull bar is a BUMPER REPLACEMENT BAR – so there is no cutting to make it fit, its mounted using only regular tools, and can be done without any experiance (but you do need a set of strong arms).

Converting a LX570 into a Convertible was not my first choice, if it came to rebuilding a Lexus LX570. But the beautiful thing is, someone thought of it, and saved me the trouble of making the same mistake. I cant think of anything else to use it for, than cruising down the mainstreet on a sunny day, or mayby going to/on the beach.

While this aint the best looking design for a 200 series, looks dont really matter when it comes to this kind of 4X4. Wide Bay Motor Bodies makes a lot of other conversion of these types, so make sure you check out their website.

ARB commercial bars for Toyota LandCruiser 200 (product code 3415100) is the rough model most of us end up buying, because function comes before form. I have taken a few pics from their website, and below you can see some of the technical details on the ARB Bull Bars. Compared to the 200 Series deluxe bar, its almost the same function, but without the design, colour coding and urethane buffers. But who can honestly say they need that for real Off Road action?

To honor 60 years on the road in Japan, Toyota have made a 60th anniversary Toyota LandCruiser 200 model. The Land Cruiser is a exclusive black design, that I am sure fits the buyers. I am waiting for the last details on this model, but will keep you informed as soon as I get my hands on them.
