    Default 2018 Land Cruiser 200

    In an attempt to break a cycle of looking for the perfect all around vehicle but trading every couple years , I bit the bullet and bought a heavily discounted 2018 leftover 200.

    Iíve done my time wrenching on old junk, and I want to spend my time in a reliable vehicle that will be Cush enough for cross country treks.

    The build will be mild and mostly for daily use, camping, boat towing, and the like, but it needs to go (almost) anywhere.



    My Duratracs from my last WK2 will be swapped onto the stock wheels, for now.

    Full 49x84 Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform on Backbone is going on with lots of extra goodies- including my ARB awning with walls.





    Redarc trailer brake control and CB will be all hidden in the dash.

    I went with a ComeUp 9500 winch with synthetic line - made in USA - wireless- waterproof.



    Iím waiting on the hidden mount to arrive from Trail Tailor- and some more protection and recovery points- this week.




    Iíll still need sliders and underbody protection, but the current pieces should keep me in the garage for a couple weekends.

    The plan is for Slee sliders, ARB underbelly skids, and Slee dual battery...but I need more cash before those get ordered.

    Looking forward to seeing people out on the trails. This is going to be for show and go... but itís one of those- ďRemember dummy, this is your only vehicle ď

    Thanks for looking.

    Great looking LC. If ecgreen does another yota run this fall you should bring it so we can all drool over it. Are you going to leave the AHC or remove it?

    Thanks- Iím still working. Rhino is all accessorized and my Slee sliders are shipping!

    I thought AHC was only a Lexus thing. Guess I missed it if I have it.
    Suspension stays stock for now. Iíll see how it goes on the trails this summer.

    Iíd love to come to a Toyota event.

    Couple recent while loading up the rack. Still need the boards, but the box had to get fit first to see exactly where to put them.

    I thought all 200s had AHC. I could be wrong, might just be an option. Do you have the option to adjust the vehicle height?
