Name is Neal Lyons, this is my 1990 HDJ81, 300,000 km/ 186,000 miles. Used for off road fun, hauling cargo to the cottage, winching down trees, camper trailer hauler. RHD JDM, 4.2 diesel, 5 speed, part time T-case and lock out hubs. Only gripe is the JDM 5 speeds are geared too low for the highway, euro's get 3.7 not 4.1. Factory ladder, spare holder and Toyota roof rack. PO added a mild lift and the snorkel.
I replaced the aging BFG's with Patagonia MT's 285/75/16 and I love them. I built the front bumper out of necessity and replaced the push button 4wd system with a ratchet manual twister that is welded directly to the spur gear that turns the worm gear of the T-case locker. Never have to worry about an electric motor failure again and the 4wd dash light still works when you lock it in :cool:

btw, you can ratchet it out of 4wd while driving 60km/h down the road, this would be more difficult with a LHD tho :)

All custom. I think it was done in the Phoenix area.

1. Year and model: 1994 FJ80
2. Name of owner: Brad Kraay
3. Name of rig: TBD (see 6)
4. Mileage: 180k
5. Mods: Nada--plenty of life to decide.
6. How the truck is used: I drive a 200 series, but my oldest daughter (15) was in need of her first car--thinking she would want something modern and techie, I was pumped when she said she'd rather have an older Cruiser. We just picked this thing up; inside looks like it's not been touched... regardless, it's my daughter's first vehicle.

1995 1HD-FT HDJ81, 113k miles, named "Pearl". One previous owner, sun roof, with diff locks. "Camper" version, with original platform/drawers and cooking setup.

I have spent most of my time on mud over in the 70-series section with my HZJ73. This week, we picked up an HDJ81 from Japan, and drove it back to New England.

As you know I’m a big fan of the 73s but I think you going to like the way the 80 rides and drives way better.
Looks like it has a lot of cool features, the two tone paint is really nice.
Original platform drawers ?

Oh trust me, we already know! And "original" as far as I know extends to them being from Japan. Not sure if the brand is factory or else.
