    Poll: Re: Do you clean before you strip?

    I have this mania about working clean. Maybe left over from many years working alongside tribologists.

    Patrol Re: Why dont more people buy the Y62 Patrol..

    I don`t own a 200 Series but a 76 V8. The worst I ever recorded offroad were 16.6l/100km. I have owned several petrol v8 powered 4x4`s. The moment you use their power consumption suffers. The Patrol...

    Re: Land cruiser 76 gear ratios

    You will not score much with 33`s the are about the same as the stock 265/75/16`s
    35`s will give you the same RPM as the Ratio change. 2400rpm @ 120

    Patrol Re: Why dont more people buy the Y62 Patrol..

    You get the 5.7 V8 Cruiser in overseas markets. The Y62 should be compared against that.
