Some of you blokes might already be aware of this, but for those who aren't, I have to let you all know that I am defecting to the Toymota Blandcruiser camp.....bought myself a 2003 4.2TDi with IFS and a 5-speed slushbox.

The patrol has been sold (yet to be finalised as the buyer is coming down from Qld around Easter) and I'm going back to being a one-car household.

I probably won't be looking in on this forum much anymore....now spending my time on Lcool.

Thanks for all the great info exchanges we have had over the past several years and I hope to see some of you around the traps from time to time.

Cheers

Roachie

So there is a substitute for cubic inches??? An IFS luxobarge jks.

I can't believe their forum is actually called 'LCOOL' sounds like they came up with the acronym first and filled in the letters later the best they could.

I had 05 LC100 with solid axle's all round and changed back after year. I must the 4.2 engine was a good motor but i just couldnt get use the shape and the feel of LC.

I also had a company LC100 V8 for 2 months as loaner and that had the same feel to it. Love the engines in both just dint like the shape.
