SOLD to a CL Buyer

Summary
  • 1994 FZJ80
  • 189K miles
  • Factory Lockers, CDL and Pin 7
  • OME Heavy / Medium Lift
  • ARB Winch Bar
  • Warn M12000 with Synthetic Line (no pulls on line)
  • Slee Step Sliders and Transfer Skid

The truck is Red (Maroon) with Oak interior. The interior is in decent shape for the age. Carpet is good expect for under the second row seats. The truck was used as a kid hauler by the PO and there is gum and candy ground into the carpet under the middle row .. not noticeable until you flip the seats forward. The truck has manual seats. It left Japan with cloth seats and the dealer in Concord (where it was sold new) added leather. The front seats have typical wear with the driver's seat bottom cracked. Second row is in good to very good shape. Third row are impeccable (and in storage in 100 series 3rd row seat storage bags). The passenger rear door armrest / pull handle is cracked and the speaker grill will not stay in place (see pictures). The power windows are slow in the cold weather). AC Blows cold. I have some Cabelas seat covers on the front seats.

The truck has a single DIN Alpine head unit, speakers, sub-woofer amp, and sub-woofer installed by the PO. They work good, but the buttons are hard to read due to the combination of wear and my aging eyes.

The carfax showed no accidents when I bought it. All the body panels are OEM Toyota, but there are no VIN tags on them. I believe they are as original to the truck. The truck has not been painted (see below) and the paint is in good shape with a few scratches here and there. It shines up good.

The Good
  • Complete records of maintenance by original owner
  • Major maintenance records from prior owner
  • PHH Bypassed already
  • D light works (but the N does not!)
  • Complete records from my ownership
  • Rust free
  • I have pretty well baselined the truck. Since February, the following has been done by either me or a tech I trust:
    • Engine oil and filter (OEM filter and Rotella Synthetic)
    • Transmission fluid and filter change
    • Transfer Case, and axle gear lube change
    • Air Filter
    • Antenna Mast
    • Cooling system flush and fill with Toyota Red
    • New OEM Thermostat
    • New Valve Cover Gasket and spark plug tube seals
    • New plugs and PCV valve and grommet
    • New OEM intake hose
    • Probably a few other things I am forgetting (CRS, 'ya know).

The Not So Good:
  • The OEM cigarette lighter socket sometimes does not work. I have traced it to the socket (see parts list). Wiring is good.
  • The cluster surround has some tabs broken off of it near the ashtray, but stays in place pretty well until you have to pull something out of the lighter socket.
  • The steering column plastic surround is loose.
  • The passenger side rear door arm rest is cracked (see picture)
  • Hail damage from a storm Memorial Day Weekend.
    • The dents have all been repaired with paintless dent repair. The clear coat on the hood failed due to the storm damage and the hood and cowl have been refinished and blended into the fenders. Additionally, while they had it, I had them fix a small gouge on the passenger rear flare (so the flare got painted too) and they painted the mirrors.
    • I cannot tell that any damage occurred and the truck looks beautiful
  • The rear main seal (I believe) weeps a little.

Uninstalled parts

The following uninstalled parts will be included in the sale
  • New upper and lower instrument panel bezels. New Dash vents, new cigarette lighter. I intended to replace the stereo and refurbish the dash at the same time with all new OEM parts.
  • Slee AC receiver skid plate
  • LandCruiserPhil front sway bar disconnects
  • YodaTeq Mirror Mount light brackets and LED dually floods
  • Thule (I think) load bars
  • Land Rover Discovery cup holder for console
  • Miscellaneous OEM Parts (oil filters, air filter, one fuel filter, 100 series brake pads, front wheel bearing thrust washers, star washers, and drive plate gaskets, and a few other odds and ends)
  • Factory Service Manual and EWD

Upgrades:
  • OME Heavy / Med lift installed by PO
  • ARB winch bar installed by PO
  • Bridgetone Revo 285s installed by PO - somewhat cupped as they had not been rotated in the 10K miles prior to my ownership.
  • Warn M12000 - bought from MUDDER, resealed by me and installed by me
  • FourRunner (I think that's his MUD name) HD battery cables and primary ground wires installed by me
  • LED interior lights (installed by PO)
  • LED Backup Lights - installed by me
  • Slee Step Sliders - installed by me
  • Slee transfer skid - installed by me
  • yodaTech rear antenna brackets - installed by me

Price: $9,000 $ 8,450 $ 7,950 SOLD

PICs (see below). Third row seats not pictured. Note my camera battery was dying, so some of these need a little help.






























If there are specific other pictures needed, let me know.

I thought this truck was clean when Mark had it and it looks even better now. I really like the look with the Slee sliders you added and I'm glad you finally installed a winch in that ARB. I'm still surprised to see you selling it and at that price considering the condition, lockers, mileage, upgrades and extras. GLWS!

Thanks for the kind words FJinTegaCay.

Over 380 views and no real interest. I am assuming this is the result of a combination of price and full disclosure of know issues. I can change the former but won't change the disclosure level

Price drop on MUD to $8,450 .... It goes to the CL masses this weekend

I am in the market for an FJ80, in Knoxville now, former Charlotte resident. Would love to see the photos, but cant access them from this page here at work. Any way you can email them to me?

More Pictures by Request

The lighting is not the best and without access to a lift, some of the shots leave a little to be desired, but per requests.
