What is the "F" for on the number plate? Can think of a few but might leave it to others so you won't go crook at me.LOL

Looks to be a real nice bus, a top replacement for the old 60 series.

Toyota wrong Nissan YES!!

Thu, 2010-12-16 20:24

The only time I've been really bogged and it was in a Toyota Hilux and it took 3 landcruisers to pull it out---and I wasn't even helping, I'd gone to pull the nets while the owner sorted it out before I got in.

I saw the light and got rid of my cruiser ute and bought a nissan ute with springs in it!!! and havent owned a tojo since

Dead Finish

Thu, 2010-12-16 20:57

Was towing a 4.2 metre tinny with 200litres of diesel in 25 litre containers and did a run down the beach and a bigger than normal wave dumped about what looked to be a tonne of weed on the trailer and down she went,offloaded the tinny and unhooked the trailer but it was too late. One of the deckies stayed to keep an eye on it till the owner arrived while I took the tinny out, refueled  the fishing boat and went to puul and reset the gear.

By the time we got back in they had got it out, took 3 cruisers together to heave it out. At one stage they said there were waves breaking over it, they hopped in it, turned the key and away it went [petrol Celica motor], had to drain both diffs, gearbox and engine because they all had water in the oil. Gave them all a good flush, hosed all the salt, weed and crap off, sprayed a couple of cans of cats piss on the electrics and it was nearly good as new.

If you are going to do a job, at least do it properly and don't be afraid to own up if it goes egg shape.
