This is a 97 FZJ80 40th anniversary 3x locked truck, professionally restored with no cost spared. No rust issues, garage kept and only driven in the rain a few times since restored. The vehicle was bought from an older guy in NC specifically to do a restore from. It went to a shop in Virginia for about 8 months and they did the majority of the restoration and mechanical work, most of which was preventative. I then added some things over the last year like the HIDs, stereo/speakers/sub, LED lighting, Prinsu rack, etc.

This build has been my baby and a lot of thought/time and way way more money went into it than what I’m asking. It was over a year in the making. I’ve now enjoyed it for a while and itching to build something new. I like building/designing more than owning/using :-)

Minor known issues:
The 40th anniversary side badges and interior badge are no longer available so those are not there. Also no 40th anniversary floor mats. However you can look up the VIN on toyota’s website to ensure yourself it is a 40th. The trim pieces (which are unique to the 40th) on the side have some surface cracks, but since these are no longer available from toyota we chose to plastidip it a custom antracite color. It looks good, but if you look REALLY close you can see the cracks under the surface. The “Landcruiser” badge on the rear tailgate has some cosmetic imperfections and could be replaced if you are really picky, but since it’s largely covered by the 4x4labs bumper/swingout I never did. There is a dent on the lower right rear tailgate that is covered by the 4x4 labs swingout and is not really normally visible so I left it. The power antenna is currently in the up position and does not retract. Should be a simple fix but I haven’t looked at it yet.

As you can see, LOTS of work, customization and preventative maintenance has been done. My goal was to make this truck look great but also be as reliable as a modern SUV. The truck drives great, no unusual vibrations or sounds, tracks straight and has good power. I’m willing to ship.
