these are getting harder to resist by the minute

This one is a hella nice spec, comes with both front and rear lockers and factory winch. I want to jump on a flight to TX and go get it.

1990 1990 Land Cruiser PRADO | eBay


edit: the tag also seems to match the spec so I would guess this one has a good chance of being what it seems.

I have seen a couple of horror stories of people getting a truck with a locker switch that just fills a standard hole in the dash but no real lockers, a switch to nowhere if you will.

Stupid people get scammed in stupid ways. If they had half a clue what they were buying they would look at the differential and clearly see no e-locker
Also, $30K for a 30 year old Prado, that's "hard to resist"? Sheesh. I'm all for imported 4x4s but come on now.
Toyota diesels do have a great whistle to them though...

I said I want to do it, not that I'm going to do it... right now. I'm looking for truck in this vintage with these types of specs but I'm not quite ready. I think I'm holding out for LJ78 from Europe that is left had drive, but those are pretty rare. I'm only aware of a couple in the entire US right now, and yea they go for upwards of 30K mostly in good working order without lockers. bring a trailer prices because 70 series in the US are pretty rare trucks.

if this is a legit JDM with lockers spec truck?

I did message the seller and the underside of the truck is rust free and looks original to me. however no good shots to prove it has lockers... I don't see anything other than a breather and parking break cable.

if somebody dropped a locker body onto a different frame? or swapped body plates? I would have to test it before I would plunk down my cash.

also this is ebay so they are asking top dollar. I will not be surprised if it sells, might take a bit but if the right buyer comes along, gone.

has been said many times before... it's worth what somebody will pay for it.

I'm with you on the logic and I love 80 series but they are just so big and tank like, it's why I love the 3rd gens. I just wish they came with solid axles, links, coils and lockers. hey wait what if I got a prado and body swapped it... hmmm...

Well I don't know about you but 80 series aren't much better where I'm at That said these are one of, if not my favorite looking car, so in the end I probably would be guilty of overpaying myself. Still, something tells me importing one yourself might even be cheaper than this

I haven’t looked at their prices for a while but when I was shopping for my t4r I almost got one in super nice condition with bumpers/sliders dual factory lockers for around 13-14k. One of the doors was super dented which is why I didn’t go for it. I do like it a lot and imports are definitely sweet, just hard for me to justify for myself I guess lol.

I agree with you 100% on the size of our 4runners (partially why I didn’t get an 80). You could get a 4wu front + rear link kits/coil overs/mounts etc + brand new Ford 9” or toyota fabricated housings w/ lockers and probably be at a little less than 30k lol.

I have yet to see anybody do a really high quality linked + coil swap.

yes I know leaf spring swaps. but god I don't want 1950's ride quality.

I would not be surprised once it's all said and done your going to need to re-gear + lockers + 2x housings and all the link joints and hardware, new brakes, new exhaust, new drive shafts, new coils, new steering system.

so saying <30$ yea if you do all the fab work yourself but in todays world your going to easily spend 20K+ or more to do a nice linked based axle swap with lockers. once you sit down with excel and start to add up all the little stuff it hurts.

I agree about the leafs. Iíve seen a few DIYers pull it off pretty good on IG (with 4wu kits). Mostly 1st gen Tacomaís but still thatís close enough lol.. But yea it will 100% be over 20k for that.
