    Goin' End To End 12/78 FJ40 "Yellow Truck"

    Bought my first 40, she's a 12/78. Not a lot of great history from the PO except that the previous owner to him used it in Montana for hunting. I think I made a decent buy although when I got it home I found gas in the oil. There wasn't any I could see when I did the walk around so I'm hoping...

    Howdy Mud, I'm back in the cruiser world! Around 2008 I bought a 69FJ40 out of a barn for 6k in Placerville. I got it running with a lot of advice from here (could not locate my old account to resurrect) some parts from @orangefj45, @Pighead in Sacramento, & username Luddite something? Put...

    What have I done.....81 FJ60 aka Tetanus

    Well I'm usually the guy who figures out he wants a certain classic 5 years after they become popular and decent examples become expensive and the rest are a ton of work. I decided I wanted a 60 bad enough to take on a pretty big project. I doubt it's the most rusty but it's definitely going to...

    1996 HZJ75 with 1FZ engine

    Hi Mudders. So I have a VDJ200 (2013) and an FZJ80 (1993). But sadly, I have the Land Cruiser bug! I recently came across a 1996 HZJ75 troopy. It seems in good shape. Originally from Chile. The owner told me engine has been swapped to a 6 cylinder petrol Toyota engine from another LC. My guess...

    The Story of Blue

    I am starting this thread to document my journey with this 2001 LX470. I have unimaginatively named it as Blue. About a month ago while I was looking the MUD one last time in my bed I saw @CappyKD list his built up LX470 for unbelievably low price and jumped on it...

    Feb. 1987 FJ60 Freeborn Red As of February 2021: ~155K miles on engine (about 260K on body) I’ve been putting this off for a while now, but I think the time has finally come to start documenting the continuation of the Bean’s journey. My wife and I were lucky enough to buy the Bean back in...

    Hey all. Im new here to the GX platform and first time Lexus owner. I recently sold off my Tacoma and wanted something different so I settled on this 2012 GX460 in Fire Agate Pearl ( it looks black in these pictures) with the F Sport Package. It had a pretty decent service history with 130...

    1HD-FTE Powered HDJ80

    Its a '93 model. 5 Speed and a factory part time case. Its apparently a GX model which i know nothing about except it has a working sunroof, the stupid climate control AC and a fancy factory sound system Ripped out the junk 1HD-T and put the FTE in, 1 million times better. Also fitted a 1300nm...

    1988 Hj75 Restoration/Build

    I recently started restoring my dads old 1988 Hj75 ute to its former glory. The body is extremely rusty, and currently doesn’t have a roof on it, but the engine is in surprisingly good condition, (nothing can kill an old 2H engine). Yesterday and today i got to work stripping the interior and...

    “Sully” 1994 FZJ80 Light Build

    2006 GX OEM + Build

    Just now starting to build out my GX since purchasing about a year ago. The goal is to go for more of an OEM + look and functionality as this will be 90% road/10% off road rig. It took me about 3 months to find exactly what I was looking for: 05' Non Nav - Darker Interior - 125k Stopped for...

    Builds  Project Bush Cricket...

    A little history... I’ve owned a couple FJ40s, an LX470, grew up riding in my folks’ FJ62, and now... I have an 80-series. I’m mechanically so-so, and lazier than most people, and don’t know how to weld. I have good friends, and I’m good at looking stuff up on the internet (especially here)...

    1988 FJ62 Build – Weekend Chief

    Starting this thread to document the work I’ve done on my 1988 FJ62, but mostly to call out the people and vendors on the forum that have been a huge help throughout the process! My wife and I had been looking for a 60 Series for years and we were finally in a position to pull the trigger in...

    The new white truck.

    This one doesn't have a name yet either :LOL: The blue truck has been great, but it has 80k on it with multiple cross country trips, so it's time someone else enjoys it. So it's now owned by one of our sales guys (Corey if you have seen him in any of our videos) and he's stoked. So the new...

    My Troopy Overland Build (V8 Turbo Diesel VDJ78)

    My Troopy Overland Build (V8 Turbo Diesel VDJ78) For me, 70 Series Series Land Cruiser family is one of the best looking vehicles ever built; and in my opinion, at the pinnacle of that is the Troopy. It is fair to say I have had a soft spot for them, having owned a couple now, but mostly...
