After some debate between the early 90s and the late 80s land cruisers I opted for the late 80s since to me it looked more 'vintage' so i did some searching far and wide and my main goal was to find one that didnt leak anything and body was in good conditon. this is the best I could find for the price. I looked for some in worst condition with major rust spots folks were asking upwards to 8k :crybaby: I couldnt believe it then I found this one for 4600 asked to come down to 4300. I felt it was still kinda high since the tires didnt matched, but after searching ebay, craigslist, and autotrader it was a decent price. I plan to keep her stock as much as possible at first and then go from there.

Just keep a little 'cruiser' fund started to fix what ever it may be. Hoses and what not, rotted valves and emissions components. I like the red; it was a tough call between blue and red for me. I can't believe what cruisers go for in Cali. I picked up mine stock for $1800 (although I'm probably pushing $6K at this point in total investment after lift and other fixes)

Start looking over your engine compartment with a flashlight for bad vacuum hoses and busted or missing connections. cheap to fix and you will get to know the engine space better. I found rotted vacuum lines, broken BVSV valve, a BB in a vacuum line, coolant leaks... and it still ran fine, but it runs better now.
If you put bigger tires on the power steering unit may fail, be prepared.
