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

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)

I purchased it in 2014 and maintained it regularly since.

No accidents

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)
