Default Anyone recognize this rig?

Hello, I am just starting my Land Cruiser adventure after crossing over from Land Rovers. I am looking at possibly buying an LX 450.

http://www.autotrader.com/fyc/vdp.js...wphototab=true

The dealer says that the previous owner was a member of a Cruiser club, but didn't know more than that. It looks like it may have been built pretty well and I am wondering if anyone here recognizes it.
I am going to go look at it today. Does it look like a fair price?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Dan

Default Never mind

Never mind. It was a wasted trip. It needed way to much work and they wanted way too much for it.

Don't know the rig. Plan on spending another $2500 for lockers and $1000 to re-gear if you really want to wheel it. No winch.

Nakman on this forum has a well built 80 that's he thinking about selling.

Welcome to the forum.
Not to mention $1500 for the headgasket. It looked like it was ready to go at any minute... the A/C didn't work and the temperature was rising in the short 10 minute ride I took with it. I guess I should learn my lesson and not bother with a dealer.
Thanks for the links. The Slee newbie guide was/is very helpful. I keep refering to it as I look for my Cruiser.
I'll take a look at Nakman's rig. I'm trying to decide for sure if I want to start from scratch and build my own, or go with one build by someone who knows what they're doing. I'm kinda leaning towards looking for a built one, or at least partially build.
Thanks for the welcome. I'm looking forward to my time with cruisers.

Dan
