1996 FJZ80, NO lockers, unmolested....SOLD!!

SOLD!!!! It will now play in the snow for many happy miles in Michigan!!


1996 FZJ80 Toyota Landcruiser, NO FACTORY LOCKERS, NO TRADES PLEASE

137,000 miles

$6000

Buddy of mine brought out to Illinois from Virginia for me to Ebay it for him, thought I'd try here first. It was his mother-in-law's driver and my friend has had it for the past 10k. Spent whole life as a road car in Fla, Al, NC, and Virginia so no salt or off-roading in its history to speak of.

loaded, blah-blah including moonroof (you guys know all this), Hitch is at least a Class III , blue-grey color, leather interior in good shape, jump seats in rear

- recent tires, recent brakes, brand new AC compressor, recent repair of both front power seat gears (thanks IH8MUD forum!)

- interior is nice, few minor garfs in the upholstery but really good overall, no rust, few parking lot scuffs and crinkled paint on the plastic bumper covers, no rust, very clean underbody

- known issues: tiny oil leak after you park it, two quarter sized drops - hasn't gotten worse in 10k miles, check engine light is on - the code is for "reduced caty converter efficiency" - my mechanic says he did a test and ensures me the convertor is not plugged, just not cleaning the exhaust as new hence the code, you could ignore this forever or eventually have an aftermarket caty or two put in for cheap, this car passed tough Virginia inspection last year, tiny crackle occasionally in stereo speakers, key doesn't unlock passenger door

- Carfax will reveal a potential odo rollback, but my buddy straightened it out (was an asshat at a VA inspection facility that added 100k to the mileage with a typo), they have since issued a "not actual mileage" title as a result. Truck has been in his family over the whole time period of the mistake.

****ignore above, just received title in the mail, has been resolved, title now shows "actual" mileage, rare mea culpa from a state DMV***

- all in all this truck looks great and feels good on the road and should last for many years

Asking $6000

May be able to work out a delivery deal - email or call

mechanic says it is from two places, one is the o-ring on the flush mounted pwr steering pump, the second is a minor leak in the area of the harm balancer / oil pump area on the front of the crank

new smugmug gallery of pics, and condition details

make sure you look at all the pages in the first gallery - there are 3 pages

here are the pics I promised a few of you, the first gallery below has three pages of pics, as you will see, the underbody is remarkably clean as you would expect from a NC/VA truck

the second link has pics of everything i would call a flaw, basically parking lot scuffs, plastic bumper paint crinkles (2), crack in tail lens, some discolored carpet on the tailgate from a spill, tick in the passenger door panel, there is also a 1/4 crack in the w-shield that hasn't gotten bigger in 5 years, too small to render with camera, few marks on the carpet, seats, headliner that may come out - haven't tried, driver seat has the standard spider creases - surface cracking

slight whine in power steering pump, but I just had a good used one swapped in so i will bleed it tomorrow as per instructions

slight oil leaks (see above)

anyone else?

have had enquiries but all from far away, can be shipped anywhere east of the Mississippi for $500 and to CA (or similar) for around $800

don't be shy, offers are ok, just don't drop a ridiculous low-bomb
