Juton2 If you contact POTTSEE alias Peter & Carol Potter, they have a 100 series non turbo diesel landcruiser and are towing a 20 foot Bushtracker with it. They should be around Sydney with it now. Suspension upgrades are mainly meant for weight carried inor on the vehicle and weight distribution equipment should be used to throw weight from the rear to front axel to maintain the correct steering and braking of the vehicle.

Brian Well pointed out about the weight distribution bars. I would be almost certain that anyone pulling a BT irrespective of the tow vehicle would by law have to have them installed. I personally do not find them a problem installing. I could well imagine that the time is fast approaching that insurance will drop you like a hot potato even if you are in the right if you are involved in an accident.
