1994 Toyota Land Cruiser
I bought this truck out of Durango, CO almost 4 years ago at 217K miles (I’m in the Seattle, WA area). Have enjoyed overlanding and camping for the last 4 years with it – never had an issue with it. It has been well maintained and is a very solid truck mechanically, suffering from some minor cosmetic issues. Everyone that sees the truck loves it. I’m only selling as I have a new 4Runner coming, so not leaving the Toyota fold.
Below are details from the previous owner’s extensive write-up that would be tough for me to better, and I have updated information along the way with some dates and more work I have done in the last few years.

The file on the truck is nearing 6” thick. There are records upon records and invoices for everything going back three owners. It is the most extensive files for any car I have ever owned.
Full Disclosure Cons/Problems from Front to Back
Front clip was less-than-exactingly repaired…Front radiator support should have been replaced after non-frame effecting accident that totaled it out. Therefore, the front fenders hang a little bit off, the inners are banged back into general compliance (light deformation, not giant). The hood’s clear is coming off to an extensive degree (replacement hood after accident). Basically the front clip (body) shows okay but has some issues. It’s what’s known as a 15 footer. Clear coat is also failing on right front fender and left rear door. Other than those three panels, the paint is solid on the truck, and cleans up nice with an annual polish and wax.
Windshield is original Toyota glass and cracked but not bad and has never gotten bigger during my ownership, or the previous owner’s time. (Didn’t trust anyone local to seal it right so never did it). Does not leak.
Drivers side Front Window Motor replaced and powerful but tracks are slightly off so it doesn’t go up super smooth and it pops at the top instead of simply stopping. Passenger side Front Window is SLOW, tracks are good, will go in-op (will need hand assistance) if cold enough. Rear windows are in-op.
Hatch supports can become in-op due to cold, not terrible here in mild Seattle.
Aforementioned Code 71 EGR – needs deleting or repair. O2’s have been checked and are fine. Passes emissions in WA state just fine.
Small oil leak at Oil Pump Cover Gasket. Never hits the ground.
Small Leak at rear main or upper pan gasket. Never hits the ground.
Very small amount of rust on lower inner door skin of rear door, driver’s side.
Cosmetic damage to Land Cruiser trim piece on center of rear hatch.
Tires still have plenty of tread, however they are 2008 date code on the rubber.
A “clunk” has started in the rear suspension in the last month or two – I cannot seem to figure out where it is coming from, and have been under there to nut and bolt everything. Does not happen in normal driving, only rougher roads. It may be from the rear sway bar, the bushings all look like they are due to be replaced.
“D” light is burned out on the cluster, as well as the ECT light, but everything works fine. I like it with no lights after having driven it for all these years.
I’ll price this two ways, one with everything on it, a turn key exploration rig, and the second, a stripped down version with things that I am willing to keep and transfer to the new truck.
Option A - $XXXXX – Everything listed above, pretty much turn key truck.
Option B - $XXXXX – Less AutoHome Tent, Custom Rack, ARB Awning and Room, ARB Fridge, Inverter, Rear Drawer System.

Thanks, happy to talk about the truck, give me a call/text at the number above, I am not often on the forums. Even though I should be, IH8MUD has been the best resource ever for this truck!
