New Jersey, United States
Putting up my cruiser for sale due to relocating. I've put a lot of time and money into this truck to make it my own. I believe in Toyota's engineering and longevity in parts. Because of this I stick to only OEM unless a proven upgrade is available. Most of the work has been completed by me using only OEM parts and instruction manuals.
In 1997, with 7k miles, the speedometer failed and was replaced with new by the Lexus dealer. I have the Lexus service record indicating this and the truck has the door jam sticker showing the change in mileage. This event will show up on the history report as a Not Actual Mileage. Putting this up top so its clear to any potential buyer who runs the report.
The cruiser is very clean with original paint and no body work.
Here is a list of completed work and upgrades.

I am very familiar with this truck, the level of detail of the work performed is incredible. Whoever ends up with this 80 will be very happy. Logicbyondreaso’s knowledge of the 80 series is impressive, he has helped me out on many occasions with problems with my truck.

@hogan646- I agree with your comments. Whoever ends up with this cruiser will not only be very happy but would get a cruiser family member with an impressive knowledge on troubleshooting any 80 series problems (ask me how I know😁). The level of detail performed is spot on and you will get a unique cruiser (supercharger and a sub tank😁) . Good luck with the sale.

Looks like a well presented truck!

There will be questions regarding the undercarriage, based on location, multiple pictures will help.

Hope it goes to a Mud member and gets enjoyed for years to come! Good luck with the sale etc.
