Hey local cruiser heads, I figured I would post this here in the local community first.

Unfortunately the time has come to sell my baby (nicknamed Ruby). It's been a hell of a great camping rig, and has gotten me everywhere I've ever wanted to go and never left me stranded. Wish I could keep her, but selling because I need a larger truck for towing a camper. See details below.


I've owned it for about 5 years. I am the third owner. I originally bought it for $16K, and have put another $19K into it.

Model: FJ62
Year: 1989
Mileage: 200,305

Major upgrades:

  • New Radiator
  • H55F manual transmission swap (done by Willamette Blvd Service Center)
  • Transfer case rebuild (done by Willamette Blvd Service Center)
  • Tailgate and Rear panel storage units (from Wagon Gear)
  • Old Man Emu Suspension 2" lift kit (done by FitGarage)
  • 32" BFGoodrich All-terrain T/A KO2 Tires + American Racing Wheels
  • New Sony stereo system + microphone for Carplay + New speakers (with custom housing)
  • New sound dampening, insulation, and carpet
  • Australian side mirrors
  • Tinted windows
  • Frontrunner roof rack
Things to note:
  • The new carpet was unfortunately put in before the manual transmission swap, so there is a hole where the old automatic shift lever was. But I've patched over it with another piece of carpet.
  • The only little bit of rust I've found are 2 small spots under the back windshield rubber gasket. But I do have both front/back brand new windshield gaskets ready to be installed.
  • Small ding on windshield and front hood
Old/Original Parts:
I've kept a lot of the old interior parts that I've upgraded in case anyone wants them. Including:
  • Original side door mirrors
  • Original rear panels and speaker metal grills
  • Original rear cargo area plastic siding
  • Original back seat floor mats
  • Service manual
  • Original tool bag and jack

New Parts:
  • Front and Rear windshield rubber gaskets (without chrome trim)
  • Disk brake pads
  • Engine oil pan gasket
  • Full size spare tire + Frontrunner roof rack tire mount

Asking $24.5K
I really want her to go to a good cruiser-loving home! Serious inquiries only.
