    Not very much... just cosmetic. All the 81's I know are JDM models.

    I believe all US spec '93 to '95 FZJ80 are actually classified (according to the VIN) as DJ81s, after that they became HJ85s

    I think there are a few differences.

    Fixed rear windows not sliding ones
    Rear Heater on the VX
    Some with rear aircon
    Option for swing out rear spare wheel carrier
    Top of the range is VX Limited not VX
    No Leather - top spec has suede interior
    Generally no front and rear diff locks - option only
    No electric seats

    Apart from that they are pretty much the same although over here in the UK the imports come in with a few toys like:

    Pitch and roll guage
    Fridge where center console would normally be
    3 inch lift + 33 inch tyres
    Rear spoiler

    Apart from the rear windows and the spare carrier visually there isn't a lot in it. 81 was really just the JDM spec 80, same engines, transmission etc without the diff locks.
