Default Help Tricking Out my 02 Landcruiser

I've had my LandCruiser since it was new and it's been a great vehicle. It's starting to show it's age; a crushed running board compliments of my daughter and a dent in the rear bumper from me jackknifing a trailer. I'd like to have these items replaced with some more sporty accessories.

Can anyone recommend a shop that accessorizes cruisers? One that can be trusted not to rip you off or do a poor job?

Everything I've found on line is geared towards Jeeps. :O(

Thank you in advance for your help. Maybe I'll get a chance to meet some of you folks in the future, in my newly tricked out cruiser.

Just roll down the hill and stop off at Slee in Golden. Parts, maintenance and all the advice you'll need.

Oh - and welcome to the Rising Sun forum.

It doesn't have to be tricked out to see what the club is all about. You've already got the vehicle and you've already found this forum. You'd be amazed at how much your truck can
handle bone stock.
Jackets advice was best though, go see Slee for everything you need. The club meets on the 1st. Wednesday of each month at Stevenson West Toyota. 7:30 pm upstairs.

Welcome to the forum!

We are a good group of local folks that have a bit of an obsession for our beloved LandCruisers.

You can also find everything Landcruiser on ih8mud.com's 100 series forum.

Slee's shop is a great place to start. Christo will most likely ask you what you plan to do with your 100 series and then give you advice from there. The nice thing about Slee, is he will not over sell you in anyway but his products are top quality.

It is a really fun process to begin, enjoy!

Christo and his crew have always done right by me. Even my old Hi-Lux has been Sleed!

Christo is definitely the man you need to see for a 100 series.

As stated you don't need to spend a whole lot of money on it to wheel it. Replace the running boards with some sliders and have at it.
