We run tours on Toyota Land Cruisers we have several 80 series and recently I purchased 75 which we used for one of our expeditions in Mongolian Gobi desert and I would say the only thing which didn't satisfy me on 75 is not stable at all! We were driving 80 series on the dirt road not so fast but still 75 couldn't keep up with us cause the handling wasn't so good cause of the short wheel base. It would needed to slow down much more on most of the part of the road then 80 series would plus... (read more)

I have owned the Toyota Land Cruiser (and it's a truck) for 13 years. It had 90K, hard use and used body when I got it. It now has 400K worse body and is getting near the end, but what a truck. I put extractors early in the piece, replaced rear diff, shocks etc. and prop shaft along the way, did all the oil changes etc, serviced fuel pump and thats it. Steers well, had great gearing, average brakes, user friendly access and spares (just don't go over 120). I advise wider tyres than standard... (read more)

I down-graded from the 80 series as found the Toyota Land Cruiser 75 Series Diesel Troop Carrier to have much more grunt when I needed it. We've never ever had to worry weather the troopy would do the job or leave us stranded. The question is are we able to handle what theseI down-graded from the 80 series as found the Toyota Land Cruiser 75 Series Diesel Troop Carrier to have much more grunt when I needed it.

I use my vehicle to accomplish difficult recoveries of stolen vehicles that somehow and up being taken to hard to get to places by people who have no regard or care of the stolen vehicle they have taken.This car earns its keep as well as being my day to day vehicle. I wouldn't leave home without. I have had roughly 65 offers to sell my vehicle and have refused them all. I really could see myself owning this vehicle for the next 25 years. As when it arrived from Japan it had only ever seen... (read more)

The toyota landcruiser 75 series continues a tried and tested line of the landcruiser series. With decades of experience behind designing and building these machines, it goes without saying that the 75 series is truly the most reliable, durable, practical and indestructable Landcruiser yet.
It can seat up to 11 people (in TroopCarrier config) or 10 (RV Spec). I have the RV, which I've had since new in August 1995. To date there have been no problems whatsoever, and if you do the regular... (read more)

The 'Troopie' is how 4WD should all be...they are rugged and designed for true 4WD'ing. If you want to impress the silver tails with all the mod cons such as cup holders, satellite navigation, leather seats et al...don't waste your time or your ego. The 'Troopie' has a very reliable naturally aspirated diesel engine. It has superiour low down torque and engine braking. With a set of air operated locking diffs fitted, there ain't many places they won't go. Being a Toyota, getting spare parts... (read more)

The Toyota Landcruiser is a great vehicle that can tackle heavy off road conditions, sand, snow, rock and mud. Has enough power to tow a reasonable trailer. The troopy is a great touring/camping vehicle. They are very reliable with the IHZ engine commonly exceeding 400k Kilometres before needing any work.
It's a classic vehicle. (read more)

This veicle should not be bought if you live in a city -it would be a shame. It is a workers car and it 10 times better than the l*nd ro**r. But get biggger tires because the originals are under dimensioned, I prefer 245/85 r16. (read more)

I have owned and driven four wheel drives most of my life, from Jeeps in the USA to Suzukis and various 4wd utilities in Australia. The Troopie is my favourite. It will go almost anywhere, has room enough inside to use as a campervan and I expect it to last several hundred thousand kilometres. It's one of the last of the no-nonsense 4wd vehicles. (read more)
