Are you sure you have it mounted on/in a Landcruiser? :-)

(withought the PRE amp. When I click in the pre amp (+12dB) the floor noise level go to 4 or 5.
Is that with the engine running? If so, you're pretty much golden. I get that level of noise sitting still with the engine off from the atmosphere, power company and city even with the IPO on. I run with the pre-amp off on 40m and sometimes 20m, doesn't make enough difference in signals to make it worth it.
