Selling only due to getting stationed overseas in 5 months. Love this thing and I will buy another one when I get overseas.

Pros:
-Be the only one on your block, city, or state with this rare vehicle.
-13BT Turbo Diesel 4 cylinder engine provides great low end torque and amazing fuel economy (low to mid 20's MPG)
-H55F 5 speed manual transmission considered to be among the holy grail of Toyota trannys for its strength and gearing
-Custom fabricated Bull Bar integrated to custom rock sliders ready for any adventure
-Old Man Emu 2.5 inch leaf spring lift with nitrocharger shocks
-ARB Safari Snorkel
-Has factory PTO winch
-35" Toyo Open Country Mud Terrain tires on Rock Crawler rims are like new with a good full sized spare
-Removable Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic Top
-Manual locking front hubs
-Front Suspension Seats
-Seats 5
-Pioneer Premier CD player with aftermarket speakers
-Extra less rusty winshield frame included
-(2) extra 35" MT tires in good condition included
-Street legal and plated in the United States!
-This is the MWB Mid Wheelbase model that has the magical 102.36" wheelbase akin to that of a Jeep TJ Unlimited or LJ. Perfect the way it is, however, a great candidate to have its suspension linked and coilovers retrofitted.

Cons:
-Body has some surface rust that has gone through the fenders and part of the windshield frame. Frame is solid but has some body rust that would easily come off with a wire brush. See pics
-Slow oil leak from where tranny bolts to engine and from PTO winch box
-Tear in driver right thigh bolster fabric
-Crack in windshield, is not spreading
-Associated wear and tear for a 25+ year old vehicle

I had big plans on keeping this for a long time and doing the bodywork repair myself as I enjoy welding, unfortunately I will not be able to do so. I also considered just cutting out the rust and attaching body armor panels similar to those sold for Jeep Wrangers. Actually, I like it the way it currently is as the "patina" provides a lot of character to the Cruiser and make me what to wheel it more vice not.

Oregon plates as I am a resident there and being in the military I don't need to register it in California. I live in Temecula, CA 92592 and could meet the buyer at the San Diego Airport or Ontario, CA Airport for a buyer flying in. Asking $12,500/OBO. Email elum79@hotmail.com for more info or call/text Eric at 626. FOUR TWO THREE. 8301
