1994 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado SX
The 70 Series Prado is one tough cookie. Here at the shop, we've affectionately dubbed these "Japanese G Wagons" and for good reason. With turbo diesel guts, versatile cabins, and formidable 4x4 underpinnings it's easy to see why these trail ready rigs are such a hit in the US market today. This 1994 KZJ78 is particularly special, finished in an eye-catching Cadet Blue with a white cap. Complemented by a 2" lift and a stylish set of matching white off road alloys and beefy Falken tires this may be the most head turning Land Cruiser on our lot right now! The body and paint are in fine shape, with only minor stone chips and dings present on the exterior. Boasting only 132k verified/documented miles and fresh off a recent service in-house, our Prado is turn key, ready to crawl. Handsome, comfortable, and remarkably capable, these 70 series 'yotas are the stuff that dreams are made of, and this Japanese Classic Prado could be the start of your next off-road adventure!
The cabin is spacious and, while utilitarian in design, packs a host of quality materials and amenities sure to please any occupants that grace it. The fitted leather seat covers give this classic interior a more modern refresh, and show very little signs of wear overall. The dash is in equally good nick, with no unwanted cracks, peeling, or sun damage to be found, and the complementary interior plastics show well, to boot. An aftermarket wood grain MOMO steering wheel replaces the clunky OEM unit and feels great as you guide this Cruiser off the beaten path. Additional modernized improvements include a Pioneer touchscreen headunit and a trick center armrest extension with built-in cup holders. The climate control is fully functional, with hot heat on deck for this winter warrior. Cold A/C works at the turn of a dial for those in warmer climates. A host of power amenities are available to keep the drive comfortable and stress free for the road ahead. Power windows and locks are all in good operation, as well as the power mirrors. The driver even benefits from power lumbar adjustments. The back has plenty of space to store all your traveling necessities, and the rear seats even fold forward to allow for a little extra cargo space. Overall it's really hard to complain about this J78's interior as a whole, and aside from a missing cubby on the driver's door card we think the next owner will settle into this classic cabin quite nicely.
The Land Cruiser Prado is a sturdy beast, and this durable body-on-frame design has clearly held up well over the years. Fans of our truck selection will instantly recognize the bulletproof 1KZ-TE power plant under the hood, and this one has received all the TLC needed to be a fantastic candidate for your future adventures. This fierce four cylinder fires up promptly, care of a new 12v battery, and a new valve cover gasket ensures you won't sweat a drop of lubrication on the road. The KZ really is a fantastic motor for these trucks, with plenty of down low torque for putting around town, and turbo spool for sustained highway driving! The slick shifting automatic is equally as good, and electronic locking hubs are a welcome option for off roading when paired with the selective transfer case. The suspension is fiercely compliant, gobbling up road imperfections large and small, and we've even installed brand new rotors, pads, and drum shoes on the rear to dial in the braking on this beast. As an additional driveline refresh we've rebuilt the front left hub and installed a new rear left axle seal. This Prado is primed and ready for whatever you throw at it, and our freshly installed 32" Falken rubber should keep this strictly-business rig ready for tens of thousands of fun-filled miles ahead!
