    May need the $$ for a down payment on a house.

    For Sale: 1994 Toyota LandCruiser FZJ80 with Proffitt’s Cruisers Cummins turbo diesel conversion. The following 80 series land cruiser has just completed a diesel conversion with a Remanufactured 2001 Cummins 3.9 liter 4BTA. For more specifics on the diesel motor and associated costs, go to proffitscruisers.com

    With the diesel conversion, comes a “Panther” Heavy-duty 700R4 transmission, considered to be a step up from the typical 700R4 Proffitt’s uses in these types of conversions. An fj62 transfer case eliminates the full-time 4wd these vehicles had in stock configuration. The early model transfer case allows 2wd for better fuel consumption and less wear on the front end.

    The vehicle has been in my ownership since 1997 when it came off a 30k mile lease. It has been taken from stock setup to where it sits now. Even given the amount of added weight it has, with the diesel, it can now get around 20 mpg.



    The following bulleted items are those included in the build of the truck. Feel free to email buyer with any and all questions. I’m using bullets to keep the ad short and concise given the amount of space a full description could really take up.



    - Reman’d 2001 Cummins 4BTA (~65k miles)

    Sorry, I checked the Rules and Guidelines prior to posting and didn't get the impression Ebay items needed a price, but rather simply a link to the auction, since price will be determined by the bidders.

    Copy and pasted:
    "4> PRICES are required...if you are selling it here, POST A PRICE...if you want people to bid on it, post it on EBay and link it here...."

    You and I both.

    Proffitt's has actually not done a 4bt/ 5-speed in an 80 series yet.

    It is a tight fit, and while very cool, I couldn't justify the Extra $2000 of the 5-speed vs. automatic. Also, when it comes to wheeling, the diesel and auto make the truck very point-and-shoot

    Well, for what it's worth, a guy from california contacted proffitt's directly to see what they thought it was worth and get an unbiased opinion. They said 25-30k, so i've placed reserve accordingly.

    BTW, thanks for the compliment

    I thought I would find the owner here, this rig sure made me excited when I saw it on ebay. I sure wish I had the cash. Best of luck with the sale.

    Contacting the company who did the work to your Cruiser, and whose livelihood depends on converting Cruisers to Diesel's would be an incredibility biased opinion.

    It's not difficult to look up on their site to see what they charge for the conversion which is a minimum of 20K plus whatever the 80 is worth. So it is a relatively unbiased opinion because their livelyhood does not depend on the sale of this cruiser. They made their money when they installed it.
