Since last April when I sold my LX450 I immediately regretted it. The 100 I replaced it with was awesome but it just never felt the same or filled the void of not having an 80. Eventually I think my wife got tired of hearing me complain so she gave me the go ahead to find another one.

New the the ONSC family is my first official Land Cruiser. I was lucky enough to pick up a triple locked 1996 locally for a fair price.

It’s actually set up pretty complete.
  • 4” OME
  • SS brake lines
  • Castor plates
  • Sliders
  • 278k but 75k on the motor. I found the owner two owners back through FB and confirmed this.
  • PHH bypass already done.
  • New Pads and Rotors
  • Gold Emblems!
The deal I made with the previous owner was that he could keep his wheels and tires so the first change will be adding and wheel tires package. Luckily @AJR had a set of rollers I could use until I get new tires.

The current list for Plans for the future are:
  • Change all fluids.
  • Remove the awful spray can bedliner.
  • 315’s M/T on OEM wheels
  • Rear swing out
  • Remove the 4” rears coils for 3”
  • Remove the interior and deep clean when it get a little warmer.

Make sure you get the correct lugnuts. Acorn (early) vs whatever the later ones are called. Damn my memory today.

Those are some cool stickers. I used to live about an hour from Dillon, MT. It’s where I went to buy groceries, and I still have some clothes from the Patagonia outlet there.

I feel you on this. Although I (and especially the wife) love how comfortable the 470 is, I catch myself thinking about getting another 80 in the future.
