    It is just the daily duties that it does.
    I'm not going to elaborate to much on that.

    Think it is easy to overload a Cruiser without notice. With heavy duty leafs at the back it barely sags.
    It is not what you buy its what you build.

    Then I'd say some preventative upgrade need to be done. Weld gussets on the axles, make sure the shocks are good.

    I'd also check the chassis for fatigue cracks every 6 months.

    I have only see cracks on FJ45`s. The 70 Series have a super strong chassis with supports in critical areas accounting for 8mm thick chassis rails.

    That is not an OEM Cruiser it is a double cab conversion.

    Hier by ons boer die Lambrechse.
    Hulle buig Cruisers. Sonder veel moeite...

    Maar by hulle buig pretty much als.... en almal.

    There has been a recall but it was not caused by the front diff. It was on Portuguese manufactured Cruiser where there was a possibility that the bolts holding the Radius arm to the diffhousing were not fitted/tightened correctly and could cause the diff bracket to Wear/ crack. So Toyota replaced all bolts and bearings and the Diff housing as preventative care. Even if the Bolts were properly tightened we Dealers had to do the recall. so nothing to do with the Diff cracking.

    I have the Portuguese SC, 2016 model. The front diff casing was replaced, but only after I did some inquiry, still under guarantee. Some agents were not even aware of that. I guess if you did not inquired it would not have replaced!?.

    To me the Jap models seems to be slightly better quality.

    And the gearbox also developed a winning, luckily that was also replaced under guarantee.

    This is how I also understood it. I know of a few housings that were replaced while the vehicles were still under guarantee. The reason why I thought there were a recall.

    Sorry , but if a dealer claims he is not aware of it he talks BS. All recalls automatically appear on the jobcard the moment it is printed , there is no way they cannot be aware of it.
    It only means they take chances and choose to ignore it.
