Default 200 Series Confessions

Ok I'll start

Buying a 2014 Red Salsa with Black Interior and 25K miles. Picking it up Friday after they do some small items. First car I have bought locally in a long time, it was the best deal in the sweet spot for me

I narrowed in on the 2013 to 2015 as basically identical options for those 3 years. The 2016 is nice, but I don't want to pay the new Land Cruiser price. Huge discount of over $20K buying 1 year old, with 25K miles and still under warranty. There will be more pics after I get her and start the mods

After towing the Kimberley with the 100, I thought I would want more power and this has a lot more power

Initial list of Mods
  • Swap tires with Toyo AT IIs just bought for my 100
  • ARB Front Bumper
  • ARB Rear Bumper
  • Lift
  • Slee Step Sliders
  • Skid Plates
  • Maybe rear locker


Yes Christo, I will be calling you, but not till I sell my 100

This is the first time I have bought a vehicle made in the same decade since the 90's. Before this the newest Land Cruiser I owned was 5 years old when I bought it in 1979.

It will look much better when it is built
