Hi dean5545 !
I was in the same dilemma regarding whether should I go for a Pre owned LC or Prado or rather a new T-Fort.
I went for the T-Fort as all the other vehicles were at least a decade old and had more than a couple of lakh kms on the odo and were 3rd or 4th hand at least.
Rather than buying one and then investing another huge amount on just to make all the mechanicals and electricals work I thought of going for a new vehicle altogether, though these Toyotas are built like a tank still you never know how they have been taken care of since over the years they have seen quite a few owners.
My 2 cents buy the Fort do let us know what choice you end up with

I don't think any of the 2 will enter my garage so soon. It will take time.
The main worry for buying the pre-owned Land-Cruiser is:
1.A majority of the owners have'nt taken proper car of the car.They just ran the car. Many don't even know what functions are operated with those buttons.
For eg. I had gone to check one sample out. It had 2 switches near the Hand-brake one said "power" while the other said "2nd".
The dealer's explanation was that if you press the power button the Car's Horse Power increases and if you press 2nd your car goes into 2wd.
According to me the button "2nd" is for the secondary fuel tank where as power might be for switching on the secondary battery not sure about this though.

2.The paperwork of these vehicles are not 100% authentic. These cars were imported from Japan without paying the duty and stuff its always dangerous to buy such cars. You never know the consequences.

This was also one of the reasons which I forgot to mention in my previous post.
Its best to stay away from these cars until and unless one really is fully sure of the vehicle's mechanical and paper credentials.

Hey!
Why did you sell it? Was it a personal decision or was sopmething wrong/faulty with the vehicle?
Also, i am on a lookout for an LC100 or a Lexus 470. Could you tell me what prices to expect for decent condition 2000+ year models?

You are better off ordering Toyota OEM parts online from Amayama.com.
