The sky blue exterior has a precious few imperfections that I have shown in the photographs. You have to look carefully to find these minor flaws.The truck sports a soft top and OEM barn doors in the rear. The entire truck was repainted during the build and remains in beautiful rust free condition having been driven less than 10,000 miles since that time. The frame is excellent and the underside looks very good. The windshield is free of defects. There is a Warn 8274 winch with braided nylon recovery line. The exterior has a myriad of auxiliarylighting and all lights work as they should. Fording small streams is childs play with the working snorkel and high clearance provided by the 4" Man-A-Fre lift and adjustable shock Rancho 9000 absorbers. The front and rear of the truck have been upgraded with excellent and no longer available Man-A-Fre bumpers including cooler cage in the rear, shovel and high lift jack.


Occupants are protected by a full roll cage for optimum safety and high quality adjustable seats with restraints and embroidered with the Land Cruiser logo. You will find interior controls for all lighting, winch, ARB lockers, control for switching fuel tanks and much more. Auxiliary gauges give the driver accurate readings of RPM's, oil pressure, water temp and voltage.Other features include ample storage witha Tuffy locking console between the front seats with Cobra CB, Locking Dashbox andTuffy slide out tool box in the cargo area.

Audio is provided by aKenwood AM/FM/CD with speakers installed in both doors and rear cargo area. There is a small LCD screen that will provide you with outside temp, heading and other details. The jump seats in the rear have been removed to make room for the on-board air compressor and tool box.Everything is in excellent working condition.


During the restoration, theoriginal 2F engine and4-speed transmissionwere rebuilt. Fuel Injection was added for bullet proof fuel delivery at higher elevations. The transmission gearing was modified with 4:88 gears and ARB lockers front and rear. The truck has a crawl ration of 65:1. You shouldn't get stranded with the 20 gallon auxiliary fuel tank, high lift jack and 8000 lb. Warn winch.

Driving Impressions:She can cruise at 65 MPH plus without issue.She shifts smoothly,the clutch and brakes are excellent and the truck steers easily with Saginaw power steering and next to new BFG 35x12.50 BFG MT tires.4WD works as it should.Front and rear disc brakes will all bring you to a quick and uneventful stop.


This built 4WD will take you anywhere you want to explore. The color is the original Toyota Sky Blue (paint code 854).
