    Re: 4x4 Van

    problem is if you go with a new quantum you might as well look at the iveco, needs the same licence.
    There are 4x4 versions available in Bots.

    Re: Land Cruiser 80 or 105

    a 105 will probably be even more difficult to find than a 80, and will cost quite a bit more if you do find one.

    so rear end looking like this now. Very basic and J/cans just get a strap to hold them in. I try and stay away from too many latches and doo-da's.

    Go to your nearest landy dealership with your VIN number, if you have the original registration number it will make it easier. They should be able to help you.
