You are looking at an exclusive FJ43 Imported Japanese Spec. This FJ43 has been restored byus! TERRA CRUISERS, bythe hands of our team of professionals with over 40 years of combined experience dedicated to Land Cruisers and custom Toyota restorations. We will also custom build your FJ43 or FJ40 at your request in any color or accessories to suit your driving needs.

We decided to build this FJ43 in honor of the discontinued FJ Cruiser by painting it with the beautiful, and cool looking Voodoo Blue color when it first came out back in 2007, the first production year for the FJ CRUISER. We are so anal in all our restorations that even on the VIN plate color we engraved the 8T6 Voodoo Blue color code from Toyota to make it as authentic as possible. It went through our TRUE professional and comprehensive frame off, bolt and nut restoration. All original bolts and nuts were media blasted and zinc plated, all other bolts and nuts such as the hardware on doors are stainless steel, even dough they are SST we place a nylon washer between every contact of the body/chassis and sheet metal to even prevent corrosion in the future. All hinges, mirrors, floors, headlamps and any other accessory are Toyota OEM brand new. The chassis, drive shafts, axles, and differential housings were sand blasted. Every single ball bearing, gasket and seal was replaced for a new one. MANY UPGRADES has been done to this mint condition looking car such as an ice cold slim vintage looking A/C from Nostalgic Air. It has a 2.5” Custom SUSPENSION KITwith ½” Shackles and in the front and 2 ½” extended shackles at the back. It has FRONT AND REAR CROSS DRILLED POWER BRAKE ROTORS which will provide better stopping power and heat dissipation as well. It has a FRONT SHACKLE REVERSAL KIT. The front shackle reversal kit gives you many pros and additional advantages into the handling on, and off-road of the vehicle. I will not get too technical about it, but you can Google it, and see the benefits of having this kit installed into any Land Cruiser that uses front leaf springs.

I can state with confidence, this is a one of a kind FJ43 and not even close to your average eBay car for sale! No doubts about it.
