paging @TRFCSUX : 1991 Toyota Land Cruiser HDJ80 Turbo Diesel / 5-Speed
Nice but pricey
Yeah, but LHD diesel 80!
If it could tow my 40, I'd be temped to trade my Tundra for it. But, it can't, soooo.
And I don't know how much of a highway upgrade that would be. And I'm saying that because I don't know.
In the market for rusty FJ40 fenders and aprons...
Damn Mike I just got rid of seven or eight workable fenders. Let me see what I have in my trailer. I have aprons though and I'll put a pair aside for you.
Very nice looking truck but yeah it ain't cheap. LHD is desirable and that is coming from a guy who has owned several RHD cruisers including my current ride the HDJ81. I am used to RHD and it doesn't much bother me but given my choice of course I'd prefer LHD. On the other hand I'd prefer a stock unmolested vehicle over one that has been repainted and re-powered by people I don't know.
As to whether it should be better on long trips than Steve's existing setup- 3FE with 5 speed transmission- I would say yes for two reasons: better fuel mileage and it should have working cruise control. Most HDJ81's that I've heard of get in the area of 20-25 MPG, I'd guess a 3FE with an overdrive fifth gear might get 15MPG on the highway. Even with diesel being pricier than gas I'd figure the cost of fuel to drive from VA to CO would be lower with the diesel. My truck just got 20.5 MPG on the last fillup and that was mostly running around locally. At least that's one big reason I bought my HDJ81! Of course the other big factor is it has working cruise control. Power wise I would think they're about the same.
I would never consider towing a vehicle and a trailer with my 81, I don't think it has the power to adequately do it and the biggest reason would be the brakes. I firmly believe that towing a trailer and rig with an 80 series is dangerous because of the braking capability. Heard too many stories and have done it myself a few times and I don't think it's a safe proposition.
Thanks Gary! As usual, my timing is impeccable.
Toyota Land Cruiser 4X4 FJ80 BEAST
The lockers on this 80 seem to be capable or feats greater than those with which I'm familiar.
