Wow, while the spanking clean LC looks good and all (awesomely maintained for a '93 vehicle, if you ask me), the sexiest picture IMO is the last one - all covered in muck.
This guy sure deserves applause for using an SUV like it should be.

Get him on board here irag's. For sure this man is a off-road enthusiast. He will love his stay here.

The last pic of the LC covered in muck is a feast for the eyes. I wonder where is this location.

And guys here are two more pictures, the first is of the suspension put in by the owner (I forgot to post it last night) & the second is a pic the owner has kindly provided to show how he uses the machine!

Great looking & very well kept

One thing I noticed was that the headlights & foglights in the first few pictures are totally different from the ones on the picture where the vehicle is covered with muck !! Just an observation


Cheers

Actually, the grill too. Some LC's had just the Toyota emblem on the grill (like mine) whereas some had "TOYOTA" written on it. The first pics had TOYOTA written whereas the last one had the emblem.

I still don't know which countries/models had emblem and which had the name.

gears,
RedOne.

Yeah, the owner mentioned that he had recently procured the new-gen lights for the machine & replaced them with the old ones.

Also, does the LC in the pic with mud all over have a scoop on the bonet, while the one in the other pics does not have a scoop on the bonet.

Ok. There are differences in the pics. So what man... We seem to be playing 'spot the 10 differences between the 2 pictures'. The owner must have made mods so the pics are different.

For me, the very fact that he has installed a winch (see the main set of pictures) is a sure sign that this person loves 4x4 and is an avid off-roader.

Believe me, it's very unlikely that a person will install a winch (and keep it covered for protection) just for show. Only a person knowledgeable in 4x4 and an off-roading enthusiast will go in for a winch.

All this slush reminds me of driving deep in Congo in our dear old MM550.

Thats a decent price for that lovely machine. What about maintaining one?

Default Question

What exactly is that thing, with a handle on the spare tyre? is it something that will help you lower the tyre and get it back on without straining your back. Any pointers??

And I think those lights below the rear bumper is wasted if he goes on for stroll in all that slush. Either it breaks off or will be under cakes of mud and would need a good wipe before it can shed any useful light.

No idea Manoj, we'll have to ask RedOne on that, he's been using one for a while now.

RedOne, what do you say??
