These tires are in good condition and have a lot of treadremaining.This truck is in great mechanical condition. The original 2F engine and drive train have been well maintained and the engineretains the factory emissions. It starts up right away every time. The engine pulls strong with verygood power and runs smoothy. The taller 3:70 gears shift smoothly and means she will do 65-70 mph without a problem. 4wd high and low work perfectly. Breaking is predictable and strong. This Land Cruiser is a pleasure to drive. The truck needsnothing to be enjoyed daily. It is a clean, honest FJ40 that runs great.

North American spec 1982 FJ40's are rare, not many were shipped by Toyota to the United States inthe 80's. These later year (79-83) FJ40's are farsuperior to earlier models. They not only benefit from improvements shared with late 70's FJ40's including 4 speed transmission, larger 2F engine, bucket seats, rear ambulance doors, pop out rearwindows, front disc breaks, and improved spare tire carrier...They also gained 3:70 gears giving better top speed and highway cruising,relocated larger fuel tank (now under the vehicle), better seats, integratedrear heater, split transfer case, and improved parking brake. This is an excellentopportunity to own a very nice, rare,wellmaintained 1982 FJ40.This truck is located in Charlotte, NC.
