My New Toyota FJ80 Landcruiser

posted in: vehicles | 0


After a several week search, I purchased a 1992 Toyota FJ80 Landcruiser from a private party. I know it’s not a FZJ, but I was able to pay for it with cash from the sale of my Jeep Wrangler and still have a little left over for some improvements.

The person I purchased the Landcruiser from had put over $10,000 in repairs over the past three years, including rebuilding of the transmission and transfer case, new exhaust, tires and much more not to mention all the required preventative maintenance.

The Landcruiser is completely stock and sports 31×10.50×15 BFG A/T tires. Many future improvements are in store as funds allow, including suspension, lockers, tires, bumpers and more.

Until I resolve the center diff lock problem, my ability to go on adventures is limited because of the lack of 4×4. I got to get it fixed soon.
