1993 Toyota Land Cruiser FZJ80

Are you looking for a FJ80 Landcruiser with the additional benefit of a reliable diesel engine? Your search has just ended. This vehicle offers the best of both worlds. The challenge with diesel powered JDM Landcruisers is parts availability for the engines that were not offered in the USA. They are great vehicles until you need any parts or service. Can you afford to wait multiple weeks for parts and then try to get an appointment with a specialty shop that works on JDM diesels that’s three counties away? This truck puts all those concerns to sleep. Here we have the reliability, quality and endurance of an FJ80 Landcruiser with the indestructible Detroit 6.5 Turbo diesel that has been modified to be an old school fully mechanical diesel. This engine is good enough to power the H1 Hummer. It will last a lifetime in this Landcruiser. If you’re looking for an EMP proof crisis vehicle, you won’t find a better choice that offers all the comforts of a Landcruiser with the badass power and reliability of the 6.5 Detroit Turbo Diesel.

Although it’s equipped for mudding and rock crawling, you can see from the pictures that it hasn’t been used for either. It’s as street worthy highway capable and comfortable as any Landcruiser you’ll come across.

This build was finished in 2012, the donor vehicles were a 1993 Toyota Land Cruiser with only 124,000 miles at the time and a 1995 Chevrolet C1500 with only 115,000 miles.

Current mileage is 137100. This was a fully professional conversion performed by a certified Toyota Technician. This was no ordinary backyard stick it together project.

A rebuilt mechanical pump, rebuilt injectors, and new glow plugs were installed at the time of the build.

It does not drip a single drop of anything.

The hood was replaced with a factory Toyota hood due to rust forming on the leading edge. The truck had only surface rust on the bottom when purchased. It’s been covered with Rustoleum bed liner and has no issues. Paint is in very good shape.


Leather has been replaced with gray cloth seats that give a little extra leg room than the leather, still in excellent condition.

The carpet, headliner, door panels and clean crack-free dash are very clean throughout without any rips or stains.

Stereo upgraded to a Scion head unit in order to provide the iPod connection in the glove box.

All factory gauges are wired and functioning and the AC blows ice cold.

The sunroof, all of the locks and windows work properly.


The truck still has the factory jack and tool kit.

Also including a fire extinguisher

This truck is reliable. I wouldn’t hesitate to get in, fire her up and drive it anywhere you want to go from the corner store to the other side of the country.

Receipts for all parts will be provided to the purchaser.

AutoCheck documents for both the Landcruiser and donor vehicle will also be provided upon request.

I’m selling the vehicle because although I live in New Hampshire, I now have to commute back and forth to New York weekly. Sadly, even though I hate to see it go, this is not the best choice for a weekly commuter vehicle for a six hour one way trip.

Please note that although this vehicle is being sold with a clear title, New Hampshire does not issue titles for any vehicles older than 2000. The truck is legally registered in New Hampshire and will come with a bill of sale along with the original clear title from when I purchased it. All you will need is a VIN verification that can be obtained from any local repair shop or Police Precinct.

The vehicle is currently located in Central New Hampshire (03230) but can be brought down to Long Island in NY (11776) to save shipping costs for most potential buyers. Buyer is responsible for shipping, but I will happily assist in meeting/coordinating the transport company on my end.

Vehicle is being listed locally. I retain the right to end this auction early if the vehicle is sold locally or an acceptable offer is made.
