I guess Farnham should go ahead and start shopping for a 200. He's always several years ahead of the herd.

I think he is looking for a newer 100 with a 5 speed tranny

Funny, I'm going the opposite direction. I keep thinking that maybe I need to sell the 80 and get a buggy. I'm getting more convinced that my wife and kids aren't ever going to be interested in wheelin' or overland expeditions, so I should just do what I want to do.

I do still pine for a 40 now and then, although my reasons for getting rid of mine are still valid. Mostly lack of time. I do love my 80, and it's got about 240k miles on it. If I blow the engine it is decision time. It's my wife's turn for a new car, though.

I'm struggling with what to do next. Not really sure what life has is store for me. The place I live in is on the Market. Anyone need a house in Vail with a responsible caretaker? My 100's got 235,000 miles on it and still going strong. I've started riding a KTM motorcycle, it's amazing what you can do with 1wheel drive. Do I drive this 100 until something major goes wrong and part it out? Do I get a loan and buy a newer 100 series? Two more years and you can't even get a loan for a 100 anymore. Do I get a newer Tundra and stop wheeling? Get a Dodge 2500? I estimate my trucks current value at about $12-14,000.(I'd consider offers) That would about cover the cost of the armor & lockers for a new rig. I've thought about a new 4 door Jeep, I've also thought about getting tattoos on my face. A 200 series would be fantastic. If I could find one for less than $20,000. For now, I'm saving as much money as I can and I'm waiting for an opportunity to present it's self. Perhaps someone who's name rhymes with Homer want's to sell his in the near future.

I've quickly learned what this obsession is all about. My 100 is the first Land Cruiser (not my first Toyota) that I've owned, and I'm hooked bad. Always wanted one when I was stationed in Arizona as a Marine. And I'd see topless 40's and built 60's and 80's all over the desert trails, but, the Marine Corps never paid me enough to afford one.

I spot them from a mile away now, always looking to see what mods are done, what kind of shape it's in and so on. To me, as a kid coming from the East Coast, a Land Cruiser always represented living in the mountains. A "go anywhere" vehicle made for laid back people in cool mountain towns.

Fast forward to now, I live in the state I dreamed about living in as a kid and drive a newer version of the vehicle I always wanted. Plus, my family is healthy and happy. It doesn't get much better. And now I want an FJ60 really bad, but I'm out of garage space. There's my 100 confession.

This looks like a pretty awesome deal. If you have priced 06's, they typically start stock in the high 20's to mid 30's. This one is built and has low miles

Needd the 90K service
