I currently own a 2000 Toyota Land Cruiser and absolutely love it, but am looking for an older body style that I can rig up and take off roading. Today I came across a 1996 Land Cruiser for sale, and since I am the owner of a newer LC I don't know too much about the older ones which is why I need some helpful advice on this rig.
It's a 1996 Landcruiser with a 5 inch lift from Man a Fre includes; springs, lower control arm caster correction bushings, front and rear adjustable pan hard bars with spherical ball ends, adjustable upper control arms, lower control arms, stainless brake line extensions, shocks, steering stabilizer, front double cardon driveline, rock sliders from Rocky Road Outfitters, 315/75/16 BFG KM2 tires like new. Vehicle also equipped with Kenwood stereo with front usb and aux out, Kenwood and Alpine Speakers, interior Dyno Matted. Parrot LS 3200 hands free blue tooth with display integrated into sound system, Optima Blue Top AGM Battery, window tint, interior mounted outside temp gauge and luggage rack. He recently replaced the exhaust manifold. It has 227K miles on it and everything work and all fluids have been serviced. The interior is in perfect condition, and so is the body besides some very minor trail pin stripes (which should buff out). After reading about all of these additions I e-mailed the guy, and asked him a few questions as well as for a few more pictures. The only red flag that has popped up is that there are minor oil seaps (which he says the 4.5 is known for), but it doesn't form a drip on the driveway...
He is trying to sell it for $9,900, which seemed a little expensive to me, but then again I don't know too much about this year.
I attached a few pictures to show you guys what it looks like. Any kind of advice, input, etc would be helpful.
