I remember seeing somewhere that sold long range fuel tanks and interior fixings for landcruisers, but can't find it. can anybody suggest somewhere that I might be able to get a long range tank for an H60?
cheers in advance.

Hi,

ARB (http://www.arb.com.au) sell the Long Ranger range from Aus that you can get from most of the main 4x4 companies like Devon 4x4 or Frogs Island. Alternatively Front Runner in SA (http://www.frontrunner.co.za/) sell a range as well, but can't remember who the UK distributor is.

Try http://www.allisport.com/ near Gloucester. A year or so ago they offered to make a long range tank for my 80. The price was less than that of an import. They can custom make tanks; for water as well. Their work, to me, looked good.

Hi - I have a 210 litre fuel tank for an HJ60 - it was made by Grand Grg in Milan for Chris Scott (I picked it up off him when he sold his 60). It is custom built for the 60 and fits over the rear axle in the load bay - really nice bit of kit. I'm sure they could make you one, though I think they are quite expensive (over 1k). On the other hand, I don't have a 60 and my 80 now has a frontrunner tank (the 60 is wider than the 80, so the GE tank didn't fit it), so I can sell you mine - has all the fitments and whatnot. PM me if interested or email andy (at) desertbiking.com

Cheers - Andy Bell
