1993 Land Cruiser FZJ80
We retail plenty of JDM SUVs, and we are keen to mention when we find a special one. This VX Limited Land Cruiser is an example of a unique FZJ80 for a bevy of reasons aside from aggressive styling. This Land Cruiser stands tall above the others on our lot and boasts several pricey and rare upgrades. Refinished from the factory silver to a black over pewter two-tone, the body is in good shape aside from some minor dings, and chips associated with normal wear and tear. The subtle aftermarket rear spoiler, American Racing wheels, and one-off steel front bumper give this lifted 80 a brooding look to match the capable 4x4 underpinnings. Featuring a plush cabin and an identical engine to our US models, this easy-to-maintain, 152k verified and documented mile rig is fresh off a recent service and is turn-key ready to rock. For the JDM enthusiasts who value durability, toughness, and killer looks, this collectible 1993 Land Cruiser would be an ideal Japanese Classic to daily drive year-round.
The cabin is about as big as anything we bring into the states. It's also very well equipped and includes many stately updates. The wood grain MoMo steering wheel and Clazzio leather seat covers make a great deal of impact and break up the darker color palette inside. To make nighttime use safer, LED headlights, fog lamps, and even a light bar provide some extra lumens and match the aesthetic. A ton of standard power amenities surround the driver, such as functional cruise control, power windows, and door locks to make daily use a breeze. Additionally, the dual-zone automatic climate control and A/C work like a charm for these last remaining warm days of the year. The seats are Alcantara underneath, but the leather covers are expensive in Japan and considered an upgrade. They fit very well and provide a more luxury feel inside the cabin. The driver gets a power lumbar adjustment and a manual tilt steering column so that you can find the perfect driving position. The Pioneer head unit is handy to have however the rear speakers need replacement. The power mirrors, electric sunroof, and audio are currently not working, and we also wanted to note a dash crack that is obscured by a cell phone pad atop it. The headliner does have some wear but the carpets and door cards look fine and it's obvious the interior was cared for in a prior life.
This massive truck is hard to ignore. The 4" lift suits the Toyota nicely, and the view from behind the wheel is commanding. Under the hood sits Toyotas legendary 1FZ-FE gasoline fed six-cylinder. Fresh off an oil and filter service, a new 12v battery helps the 4.5L to crank to life. The engine idles nearly without vibration and is mated to a full-time four-wheel-drive system. An automatic gearbox sends power to all four wheels and shifts occur smoothly and are seamless. If some poor road conditions or rugged terrain is ahead, this 80 can utilize a center locking differential and low gear set to increase grip. The truck drives well at speed for a lifted Land Cruiser, and the brakes are capable enough for daily use. The charcoal American Racing wheels are all wrapped in new 37" rubber to complete the work performed in the shop. These new tires will last for tens of thousands of miles to come and provide year-round grip all while looking killer going down the road!
