I have a left hand 1984 BJ 70 Land cruiser serial number JT 3BJ7OV6FOOOO4O1 this is a diesel 5 speed with factory cable lockers its in Canada i use it for guiding it is truly a billy goat incredibly tuff!!!
Homer here. I have owned a 11-1989, BJ73 (3B Diesel) since new (in Australia/Oz).
It has just over 378,000 Kms on it and I have only recently done and had done some repairs to it (mainly rectifying oil leaks. Front Diff housing and G/box-T/case). I'm just waiting for the parts to come in (Plunger and Contacts) for the starter motor, and it should be as close to 100%, as a 29 year old "Battle Cruiser" can be.
Here is an image of it, up in the Snowy Mountains (in Summer).

I've been enjoying reading some of the stuff you buggers have been getting up to with your Cruisers, and hope to use some of this detail, to add to mine.
1. 1992 LJ78
3. Duvall, WA
4. Brought over from Japan in September
5. Just over 100,000 Km
6. No modifications yet
7. Daily driver, camping, mild off-roading
Any particular reason you didn't swap the 80-suspension in the front?
I am not a big fan of the 80 front suspension. In my experience, it tends to take a lot of force to articulate, which forces the rear to do most of the work. This is most evident when climbing because less weight is distributed to the front end. My understanding is that this is a side effect of how radius arm suspensions essentially use the axle housing as a swaybar. If I were to ditch leaf springs, I would probably go to a custom 3-link setup.
Ya for flex radius arms are a far cry from the best. On road though and on dirt roads I really like coil springs.
1985 BJ73 from Australia. 300,000 Km. 3B and 5 speed. Located in So. ILL. Tough Dog suspension. Maxxis Bighorn 33X12.5-15 tires. ARB front bumper.
Love the graphics on the BJ73....

Very nice truck! Is it original to Europe? Does it have the mechanical injection 2LT-II? Manual transmission? Is the rear axle drum or disk brake?
