    Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee 3.6 Questions

    True. Go for the facelift from 2014.

    - It looks sharper

    - Improved suspension and traction settings (The first one...

  6. Re: Are the LC 70 series V8's really THAT problematic in Africa?

    Generally in Africa, or at least outside South Africa, be safe and stick with Euro 4.

    In East Africa, Shell and TOTAL all say their diesel is 50ppm. You will not get anything finer.

    There are...

    Re: What Prado to buy now?

    New release 180 may come in 2023.

    I will hang on to to my 2012 TX till then.

    Only thing I hate of the 3.0d4d is the tractor sound especially under load.

    Is the new 2.8 any better?
  9. Re: Are the LC 70 series V8's really THAT problematic in Africa?

    True.
  10. Re: Will you buy an LC 200 VXR now or wait for the 300?

    The torque downgrade from 650 to 600Nm is worrying. Unless the LC300 loses about 500kgs.

    But why the *^$## can't they drop such a motor into the 150 VXL.. (wishful thinking)

    I've seen several LC200 fitted bullbars with front end visibly sagged and hanging much lower. Though I've not seen same for fortuner or 150.

    Re: New Engine: 90 Prado KZ-TE

    Nope.

    The late LC Colorado (UK branding for Prado 90) all had KZTE.

    The late model intercooler-fitted KZTEs were marked D4D, but were not really the 1KD d4d motor.

  14. Re: Are the LC 70 series V8's really THAT problematic in Africa?

    Nope.

    Many 70 series cruisers mostly outside SA are grey imports running the 1GR 4.0v6 petrol.

    But yes there are also many with the 1HZ, those sourced through official Toyota dealerships.

    In East Africa, Shell diesel is the trusted one via quality allround. There are many using 50ppm cars on Shell diesel. However, issues of contamination now go beyond the ppm issue.

    Now that you have to replace the motor, get the kz-te one with the intercooler. They are more powerful and torquey, and even for.somr reason quieter.

  20. Re: Will you buy an LC 200 VXR now or wait for the 300?

    Come on now, that really is a pimped 200.

    In no way can it be the 300. Unless its another facelift.

  24. Re: Will you buy an LC 200 VXR now or wait for the 300?

    I guess how much it weighs will also play a role.

    If the current 200 is 650Nm, anything less will make me frown.

    That sentiment is probably shared by many TX owners. My point was around the fact that tuna drivers should not feel like they missed out a lot for not going tx.

    You should only feel that way if you stop next to the 150VX/VXL.

    There's not much to miss between top spec fortuner and 150TX/L. Even ride quality is near identical because of no KDSS on tx

    Well your figures above give 95cm width difference. And wait, is the Prado longer than the 200? I don't think so.

    But either way, the Prado is wide enough. Any 10cm additional is only superfluous....
