Hey, so here are some pics of the rig.
It's a '94
Has all of the locks
173k on the odo
fairly distressed leather.
factory jack and tool kit (my '08 Tundra didn't have either)
fairly new tires (Yokohama Geolander at/s in stock size)
fairly clean engine bay
PO drove it to me.
I’ve always wanted BJ40 or BJ42, even before I had a driving license 25 year ago. But I’ve never had a right time to buy it, until last December when a friend of mine told that his friend is selling his 1981 Land Cruiser BJ42 (Euro-specs, I live in Finland).
It was quite rusty, but very close...
I've seen plenty of these build threads and felt that it was about time that I tried my hand at crafting my FJ62 story.
If I had to say what the initial impetus would have been for my purchase of the rig, I would say that its because I have a family of three and needed to find a vehicle that...
newest photos now at the end of the thread.
I figure I'd put up a thread with everything I'm doing with the truck.
Picked up my 2001 LC late 2015 from Texas.
I wanted to find one with a few bits already done and I managed to do that.
It had the following
TJM Classique bumper
OME heavy 866...
I’ve been looking across California for our first FJ60 for quite awhile now. Finally found the one for us. Tan 87, 233k miles. It was purchased and spent most of its life here in San Jose, only migrating less than 100 miles north before I brought her home.

Guy was very nice, the yard was local to me. I was supposed to see a corona, and got this fj. Alwasy wanted one, but the prices went so high lately, i doubted i was ever going to own one.
For shell, xxxxxxx$ was a...
I've been visiting this place for a few years now, chasing tips and useful info for my Cruiser. Some of the projects on here are truly impressive and I've been following a few from a distance with much admiration. Well something must have inspired me and I've now embarked on a...
I picked up this 2002 78 Series back in August of 2015. It was originally used as a work truck for a Panamanian electrition, then bought by a guy who flips vehicles, then by me. The guy who I bought it from did some minor repairs, a cheap spray job, and some rims and tires.
It's a non-turbo...
Since I was a kid, I had always been in love with the original Toyota Landcruiser body style (aka FJ40); I always said I would get one when I was older. Several years ago, my dream came true; I found one out in Los Angeles, and flew out there with my very supportive wife to pick it up. We drove...
Alright, post up anything! Show of your new mods, your oil change victory, or just a cool shot of the cruiser. Pictures are needed, or it didn't happen!
I Installed a snorkel! Mainly for the looks, it was a gift. Made of chinesium, $80 instead of the $350 safari snorkel.
Hey guys.. I might be jumping the gun a bit here but I've got my eye on a tidy 79 FJ55 that I'm hoping to inspect and subsequently take home this coming weekend. It's been a few weekends since I got the green light from the minister of finance so my brain has been in overdrive and my eyes are...
oooookay so i guess I'll finally get around to making this thread.
