1994 Toyota Land CruiserI picked up this beautiful Land Cruiser a few weeks back. It is a must drive for Land Cruiser lovers. My daily driver being another Land Cruiser, I was excited to bring this one back to its glory. To do so I had to replace the exhaust(tailpipe and muffler, see pictures). FYI, if you are looking at Land Cruisers, you probably already know that they last forever. You may not have been aware that the exhaust doesn't. This one is now brand spanking new.
Although the underneath is in good shape for a 23 year old vehicle with no signs of rot issues as well as the frame. There was some rust in the inner wheel-well that I had to deal with. The LC went to an auto body shop where they cut out the rust and welded and repaired it beautifully(see the last picture).
Next up, it needed new tires. So I put on four brand New Ones

My local mechanic then did a thorough inspection. Between the tires, exhaust, rust fix, and stickers this baby has had almost $2,000 put into her to make her the awesome ride she is today.
The check engine light is on and is giving a code for an O2 sensor. My mechanic told me that the sensor is fine and this is a false positive. It passed the emissions test with flying colors. If you really wanted to, it only costs about $200-$300 for a shop to change it out but it is completely unnecessary.
Since I am not a dealer, I had to register it into my name. So I am technically the second owner but this Land Cruiser was just traded in by the original owner at a local Toyota dealership in December and it was definitely mechanically well maintained.
The interior is in extremely good condition for the year(look at the pictures). There are no funny odors inside or tears in the interior. I treated all the seats and carpets with scotch guard to prevent any future spills from staining anything. The power moon roof and power mirrors are working properly. As with all Land Cruisers of this year the front power windows are working but moving very slowly and the rear ones are not working but maybe just a connection as they are in the up position. The climate control works great the AC system is working. The heat works great as well on all settings. A Clarion stereo was installed at some point.
The drive train is in good condition as well. The V6 4.5L engine is running great with plenty of power. The transmission is shifting perfectly through out all the gears. All of the fluids are up to date and at there proper levels. The brakes feel great and bring this SUV to a nice stop with no issues to report. The suspension feels good at all speeds. All of the glass is in good shape and all exterior lighting is working as it should.
The exterior still looks good with typical clear coat fading for this era. With any used vehicle from highway travel and time there are some minor dings, and small rock chips that are present on the body from normal highway travel but are very hard to see in the photos.
The odometer is currently showing 285,708 miles but may increase slightly. I have road tested this Land Cruiser roughly 300 miles and it feels solid as a rock.
