If you are looking for a restored, high end custom built Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser, you have just found it! This FJ was professionally repaired using new sheet metal components (where needed) from Cool Cruisers of Texas. Professionally installed and custom painted, interior has bed liner in black and New custom Mastercraft Baja seats and a Tuffy center console. Everything on this build was completed in the last 2 ½ years, many components were replaced with new parts or rebuilt to perform like new. The truck has been driven very rarely since completion.
This is one of themore stunning FJs you will see. The Body is super straight. The Paint color is a 1978 Porsche Green. The panels of this FJ were painted on the outside as well as the inside…giving a complete color change. Both fenders & aprons, the hood, rear ambulance doors, etc. were removed from the tub when painted, as well as all glass was removed. Re-assembly included stainless steel hardware.
Mechanical upgrades include new battery, many engine gaskets, belts, hoses, new starter, new alternator, new braking system, re-built factory power steering system, new PS pump, complete new cooling system (including water pump, hoses, & heavy duty diesel radiator) the fuel system (including removing tank to inspect and clean, new fuel pump & lines where applicable, re-built factory original carburetor, etc).
Drivetrain upgrades include WARN locking hubs, 4” suspension lift with all new leaf springs & Biltein 5100 shock absorbers. The FJ40 has been re-geared to 4:88 with new ring and pinions and master install kits, both axles have been completely gone through including front knuckle ball re-builds. The truck also features stainless braided brake lines & all new power brake system front and rear. Other upgrades included new U-joints in both drive shafts, all new suspension bushings, all new steering components, and all new fluids throughout. In addition, this is a rare factory equippedpower steering model,and the factory box has been remanufactured
The FJ40 is fitted with 17” ATX Slot simulated bead lock alloy wheels in satin black and Goodyear Wrangler MT/R + Kevlar tires in a 35x12.50 R17 size. The axles have 1.5” wheel spacers to widen the track width and make the stance look great
Interior was kept very authentic and original where possible. Interior upgrades include new door panels and hardware, reclining Mastercraft Baja seats, Tuffy center console with stereo provisions, new shoulder belts, bed liner floors, & Weather Tech rubber Floor Liners. In addition the hard top was fitted with a new headliner.
Body upgrades include sheet metal repairs and replacement on the back ½ of the tub as well as the back of the frame. New Factory Toyota lighting and emblems were used. New mirrors & Truck Light LED headlights with high low beams were installed. PIAA multi-function front off road lighting is mounted to an ARB front winch bumper (no winch yet, but will accommodate a WARN 8274).
Many parts on this build are the beset condition original Toyota parts we could find and the time. This is a very nicely restored and modified FJ40 that is ready to drive. Truck has a current Virginia safety inspection, and is road worthy. The truck had a professional front end alignment upon completion, This truck stops, steers, and drives great. A clear Virginia Title and matching Factory VIN number on body and on frame. Receipts are available for all work performed with details for the new owner. I am sure I am leaving some details of this restoration out, there has been so much work done to this truck.
As with any old car, there is certainly more that can or could have been done. I have taken this FJ40 as far as I am willing to go and now it is your turn to take the keys and make it yours.
