1994 Toyota Land Cruiser FZJ80Why am I selling it? Because I'm trimming down my collection of Cruisers until I find my desired FJ45. Yes, I would trade for a FJ43 or FJ45. Yes, the title is clear, clean and this "mixed" truck has been in Southern Arizona for most of its life. No, the rear main seal and power-steering do not leak. No Engine Light and yes, the air-conditioning is Toyota ice cold!
Now, for the fun stuff...
Earlier this year, my 1997 Lexus LX450 with 154,000 miles was rear-ended by a semi. The truck was totaled but I bought it back for all the parts and accessories. Then I picked up this fine Arizona 1994 Cruiser from a neighbor, with 365k miles! He had it in the family for a long time and it was almost impossible for him to get rid of it but it leaked like a pig and he knew my love for these Cruiser's. Still has original sticker and documents! After agreeing on a price, I drove it straight to a very reputable Toyota Dealership in Phoenix. The entire engine was rebuilt, rear main seal replaced(yes, the engine was pulled out of the truck), all hoses and factory clamps installed, pesky heater-hose replaced AND parts from the LX450 were used to replace the manifold, throttle body, air-intake system, Bilstein w/lift suspension(less than 5k miles), front and rear axles(new front seals), wheels, tires, headlights, grill, trim, etc. You start this truck now and you forget it's even on, it's so quiet. And yes, it drives great! Alignment done. You quickly forget the power these trucks produced when they came off the lot. New control arms with bushings and front control arms were also installed. And yes, new motor mounts were also installed. ALL new fluids including transmission. Receipts and documents to show the work. The list goes on and on...
The entire suspension has less than 5k miles on it and came off the LX450. BFG KO2's 285/75/16 have over 80% tread left. Spare is a new Kenda Klever MT 235/85/16. After many years and trips on 35" tires and 2.5" lift suspensions, I am now a firm believer of only 285/75/16 with the OME2861 front coils springs and OME2862 rear coil springs with Bilstein HD shocks and OME SD24 steering damper. Added 30mm front spacer. If you're not "crawling" and looking more for a off-road expedition experience type rig, this is the set-up for you. It's a firm suspension on the asphalt(no body roll or "wobbling" when cornering) but you'll thank me as soon as you hit dirt ; )
I added new interior LED lights, manual factory throttle cable and factory center diff lock switch. All lights bulbs were replaced that were burnt out, except the radio bulbs. Radio and CD work! Sunroof works perfect! The rear door windows do not go up all the way(off-track). They are about an inch off and can be pushed up by hand. This was a camper/bug-out type vehicle so all rear seats and seatbelts were removed. No, I do not have the rear seats. Seat mounting holes were filled with white silicone. Truck was never smoked in and there are no weird smells or dog hair.
Rear Eaton Electric Locker was on the LX450. VERY RARE! I believe I was the first in AZ to have this installed on my LX450. It was swapped over with the axles. There is less than 5k miles on the locker. In my opinion, it works better than the factory Toyota locker because it engages as soon as you begin turning that "magic" dial. The dial switch as well as the Eaton Locker was installed by a Toyota dealership. No air compressors, no air hoses, no drive forwards or backwards to engage, no "automatic" engagement, no BS! It locks right away in any situation and it's a completely sealed unit.
The Bad - The body has 365k miles on it and it's the original paint, so there is some oxidation. Dent above and below rear driver side tail light. No driver side sun-visor, no rear seats, I swapped the original front fabric seats with electric seats. The 94 wiring harness with fabric seats only had a open plug for the driver side seat and nothing for the passenger side seat? I searched under the carpet and couldn't find anything. The driver seat moves but the passenger seat does not. I added a new driver side seatbelt. Small tear in the rear passenger door panel.
I would consider soon replacing the O2 sensors(original) and rear brakes.
Included - Wit's End pocket protector and center console liner, Pelican space case, ARB awning(with LED lights), 58" Hi-Lift and mounts, gun/fishing pole rack, mud track ramps and rubber Huskey cargo mat and front rubber mats. Roof rack and rear bumper was new and added a few months ago along with the marine fire extinguisher and rear upper cargo rack.
Not included - My blue shirt covering the license plate and sitting on top of the roof rack, front IPF fog lights(no wiring harness, my water shoes, fishing pole/equipment, rolled foam mattress and all the items on the upper rear cargo shelf.
PLEASE feel free to ask any questions or if more pics are desired.
Thank you for taking the time to read through all of my posting. I hope this rig falls in the hands of someone who will appreciate it as much as I do.
