The J100 Land Cruiser has a cult-like following in the USA, and for good reason. It's not common to see these old Toyotas kicking around on stateside highways and byways today, which makes this 82k verified mile 1998 Cruiser a hot prospect. The one-off Gunship Gray paintwork is eye-catching too, and LED tail lamps, slim rainguards, factory rear spoiler, and 16" five spoke alloys set off the aesthetic nicely. Save for some hairline scratches and dings, the exterior is no worse for the wear and the 2UZ-FE under the bonnet is shared with our stateside examples, making parts sourcing and serviceability a walk in the park. A luxury hauler, campsite crawler, and a downright reliable truck overall, the J100 is nothing less than a true Japanese Classic!

Toyota pulled out all the stops when redesigning the Land Cruiser cockpit for this generation. Following a new, more luxurious approach, premium materials and power amenities were prioritized, and this particular cabin boasts a set of fitted leather seat covers and the optional and desirable rear bench to boot. The dash is soft to the touch and tucks nicely in the front of the cabin, and dual front SRS airbags were made standard. The center stack is intuitively designed. Automatic climate control is easy to operate, and an adjacent BOSS audio headunit funnels the tunes in with Bluetooth functionality. Power windows, locks, and side mirrors work like a charm, although the passenger mirror no longer electronically folds to assist with parking. Dual zone climate allows your rear occupants to dial in the cabin to their liking and an expansive power moonroof is on hand if they prefer natural ventilation. For additional cargo space, the third row can fold off to the side, and your middle passengers can recline their bench if they need to catch some shuteye. The door cards and headliner are in good condition, and the carpets below have been protected by some OEM carpet mats. Further protecting your investment, we tossed in the original owner's manual and some factory literature for good measure!

Offered in our stateside examples and chock full of power and torque, it's no wonder the 4.7l 2UZ-FE under the bonnet is beloved by 'Yota enthusiasts worldwide. Ours cranks over swiftly care of a new 12v battery and it's fresh off a comprehensive recent service, which included a fresh oil and filter change. From there, a new alternator was required to properly road test the vehicle, and we chucked in a new fuel filter for good measure. After a coolant flush and reseal of the transmission pan, this Cruiser was ready to hit the highway and the V8's acceleration is more impressive than any other full sized SUV we've seen up to this point. Power is sent through a full time 4WD system, with low gearing if the going gets tough. Better yet, the active ride height controls are fully functional and can aid in increasing ground clearance if you venture off the beaten path. To get the suspension safe and within compliance, new bushings were installed in the rear upper and lower control arms. We changed out both front inner and outer tie rods, and replaced the swaybar links in the rear. The steering is comfortable and easy to maneuver, and the nitrogen assisted brakes stop on a dime. We wrapped the 16's in fresh rubber. Clean, stylish, and knee deep in brand new tread, they'll last a good while thanks to a fresh alignment we performed here in the shop!
