Its been such fun owning "Huckleberry", but its time to move to a more appropriate DD.

Price: 18,500 CDN (able to import to US)
Currently located in Vancouver, BC.
305,xxx km

Original domestic purchased for $20k through Outback Imports in Feb 2007 w/150,000km
Fully baselined at ATEB (local JDM shop) at that time (including BEB)
$17k in parts alone spent since then (listed below)

I purchased it in 2014 and maintained it regularly since.

No accidents

Drives great super quick off the line (relatively speaking), sounds great, looks great, always a conversation starter.

  • Factory Triple electric lockers - Work great!
  • "Pin 7 mod" to allow Low range without locking center diff
  • Caster correction plates
  • Slee Offroad front double cardan driveshaft
  • Big brake upgrade on front AND rear end - uses late model larger rotors and calipers with bigger pads -- significantly improves braking over stock

Other

  • A fair bit of maintenance was done at ATEB since the previous owner and I have owned it: including injection pump resealing, injector removal and rebuilding (Fred Holmes), front knuckle resealing, valve clearances, coolant and steering fluid flushes, wheel bearings, and much more (~$5000). Most recently, the front heater core was replaced with a n aluminum one.
  • Chassis and Engine Manuals, aftermarket parts instruction manuals, as well as customized part numbers list and modification details provided to help out down the road
  • eligible for US import
What's wrong:
  • Typical small leaks/weeps from a 26 year old truck. It doesn't lose any fluids in quantities sufficient to require refilling. Oil level doesn't change between fills.
  • Power windows are very slow in cold weather, which is typical for 80-series Landcruisers, there are several known methods of improving this.
  • Front wipers high speed position has never worked, possibly needs switch cleaning.
  • The AC needs recharging - it does NOT leak. I had to have is discharged when I replaced the front heater core. It has been converted to the modern refridgerant.
  • The low fuel light is sticky - currently stuck "on". Go over a big bump and it will go off again (but then its stuck off)
