    1994 Fzj80 (unlocked)
    50 mi west of Boston, MA
    170k miles


    I bought this rig from a North Shore Oral Surgeon last spring. Since then, I have
    o replaced the rear heater hoses (rear section: OEM pipes; front section: 5/8" Gates hose)
    o replaced left tie rod end
    o rebuilt steering box
    o new OEM muffler
    o replaced the catalyst seals & hardware (cats themselves are ok)
    o removed & re-sealed back window
    o removed the running boards (they are included)
    o new OEM shocks
    o removed and wire-brushed the tow hitch
    o replaced the steering high-pressure return line
    o alignment
    o replaced front driveshaft

    The good
    o The truck runs great, compression is consistent between the cylinders
    o Interior is complete, no rips/tears or excessive wear
    o The body is solid, with minimal rust for the Northeast
    o I've changed the oil twice in about 10k miles, Mobil 1 5/30
    o All equipment works properly (windows, cruise, etc)
    o AC blows nice and cold, front & rear heaters work great
    o No accidents, CarFAX is clean

    The bad
    o The truck has a mildewy smell. I've made a couple of half-hearted attempts to clean it, but cleaning isn't really my thing...
    o Will need tires, about 25% of tread left
    o steering box has a minor leak (dime-size overnight). it was 'rebuilt' by a toyota dealer tech, still leaks
    o back door/top hatch has a rust spot that I ground out and re-painted, I also replaced the back-window seal. Still some rust there.
    o back door latch does not work
    o The AM/FM/CD works fine sitting still, skips when you're moving...typical of these units
    o The driver's window works fine in warm weather, very slow in cold...typical of these trucks
    o Front axle service has not been done. There's a mild click-click from the front end.
    o There's a dent from a baseball in the front-right fender.
    o There are small amounts of rust creeping in, most notably on the back door/hatch and front bumper.

    It's my understanding that the radiator was replaced about 3 years ago. I haven't noted any leaks other than the steering box

    I love this cruiser and want it to go to a good home. My wrenching time is getting more and more rare...I need something to plow with this winter....and I have too many cars as it is.
    :crybaby:

    The photos show no hitch. If you have the hitch and its a 2" reciever would you be interested in selling it?
