1976 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40

I am a senior professional mechanical engineer and have spent the last few years designing and building this one of a kind 1976 Toyota Landcruiser FJ40. Every detail has been meticulously fabricated with the best hardware available. Unforeseen family financial circumstances force the sale but the truck is titled, plated, and has approximately 600 street miles on it. I have only taken it off-road once for light shake down purposes but it is Rubicon/Fordyce ready and will make someone very happy. The truck cruises comfortably at 80mph down the highway and has tons of power/torque on tap with the LS V8. I know I'll regret this one day but...here we go:

  • 1976 Toyota Landcruiser FJ40. Spent its life in northern Nevada and does not have any rust. I know the original owner and have the clean title in my name ready to sign over.
  • BD Turnkey LS LM7 5.3L low mileage drive by wire engine tuned to 330 horsepower (I have the dyno sheet). You must run premium fuel with this vehicle. These come with a painless harness, OBD2 port, fuse box, etc. and are amazing.
  • Tilden Motorsports low mileage late model 4l60E automatic transmission and Lokar shifter
  • Atlas II Transfercase, 4.3:1 with twin sticks. Advance Adapters trans to t-case adapter and VSS tone ring kit. Can do front wheel drive, rear wheel drive, high or low.
  • Dynatrac Dana 60 high pinion front axle with Yukon 5:13 gears, Detroit full carrier locker, high steer and manual locking hubs.
  • Rear is full width 14 bolt full float axle. 5.13 Yukon gears with a Yukon locker. Disc brake conversion with mini truss, 1350 u-joint style yoke, pinion guard and motobilt shaved diff cover. Full master rebuild kit with Timbren bearings and seals.
  • 5 Brand new Pro Comp Xtreme MT2 40x13.5r17 tires
  • 5 brand new Hutchinson RockMonster DOT approved double beadlock wheels. 17x8.5" and 8x6.5" bolt pattern. These wheels alone were $3k.
  • King 16" remote reservoir coilovers tuned and sprung by Ryan at Accu-Tune. Currently set up for 7" jounce, 9" droop. 100 over 200 lb springs.
  • Rough Country Jeep Cherokee 3" rear leaf springs (to stretch wheel-base out back, this is common swap).
  • Advance adapters engine mounts and t-case mount
  • 3 link front suspension with panhard bar. All 2" .25" wall DOM with Currie Johnny Joints. Great link geometry (I can send you the link calculations) and steering geometry. Has no bump steer and you can see drag link and panhard are on the same plane and only 1 degree angle at ride height. They have some compound bends to keep the truck low yet get as much up travel as possible but geometry on this truck is well calculated and executed.
  • Champion 3 core radiator with mechanical fan (I always prefer over electrical). Has integral transmission cooler. Harness has leads for an electric fan if desired (as well as cruise control and other accy).
  • 4" travel nitrogen charged air bumps out back and Timbren progressive bumps up front. Rear shocks are 12" travel Bilsteins.
  • Custom front bolt on winch bumper, rock sliders, rocker panel bolt on armor and bolt on swing down rear tire carrier
  • Smittybilt 9500 lb winch and rear 2500 lb pull down winch with remote control and synthetic line
  • Dash gauges controlled through 10" android tablet on RAM mount communicating via Bluetooth to powertrain. Allows customizable gauge cluster, GPS, apps etc. Can monitor most any engine parameter, log data, check faults etc.
  • 800 series new Saginaw box with Borgeson steering u-joints and shaft. Box is 4 turn, 16:1 ratio. Slow enough to be comfortable on the road but low ratio enough that you can static steer with one hand.
  • Fully plated and epoxy coated frame rails
  • Fully stainless 3" exhaust, tig welded with v-band clamps, flex sections and Hooker shorty block hugger headers.
  • Optima 34B red top battery and master power switch. Artec battery box mount.
  • Truck-Lite LED headlights and tail lights. Almost $1k in lights alone. Same headlights and taillights as seen on new military humvees.
  • Painless custom 23 circuit harness installed with kevlar split loom and fully weatherpack connectors
  • Metal Tech roll cage, 2" .120 DOM. Bolt in with frame tie-ins
  • Zirgo/Gobi cab heater
  • Front seats are heated leather from a Subaru WRX STI. Rear is a fold and tumble bench seat from a Jeep Wrangler TJ. Front has mastercraft harnesses. Rear has latch for car seats with an engineered mount welded to the frame (I have two small kids and did this for car seats but it could easily be removed)
  • Poly performance urethane body mounts, no body lift.
  • Everything installed with new standard grade 8 zinc coated with nylock washer or 10.9 if metric. All new hardware from McMaster Carr.
  • Walbro 255 fuel pump with OEM corvette fuel filter/regulator
  • Fuel system all -6 and -8 AN Fragola fittings and push-lite fuel hose from Summit Racing
  • T100 dual diaphragm booster and Toyota 1 ton master cylinder with 1.125" piston. Great stopping power.
  • Painted Olive Drab Green and epoxy primered. Comes with an extra gallon of brand new paint from the same lot in case of any future touch ups. Interior sprayed with U-Pol Raptor Liner with professional spray setup. This has the texture and durability of Line-X and you can reference the reviews on Amazon but it is phenomenal stuff.
  • I am meticulous with wire, hose, etc. routing and everything has been abrasion resistant wrapped, shielded, zip tied and flush cut with high quality materials.
  • Comes with whatever spare parts I have, some recovery gear, some stock landcruiser parts, left over fab parts like tabs, brackets etc. I purchased from ballistic fabrication.
  • Comes with full doors in great condition. Roll cage still will fit a hard or soft top but you'll have to unbolt the tire carrier.

I have never sold something this expensive on ebay before and will not expose myself or the buyer to financial risk or liability. I will take cash or meet the buyer at a financial institution that we can walk into together and get a cashiers check. I'll of course take the deposit via paypal but not the sum. I will work with you in any way I can to arrange shipping or bring the vehicle somewhere close within reason. I am in Carson City which is 2.5 hours from Sacramento, 4 hours from the bay area, 30 minutes from Reno, 8 hours from Salt Lake and 5 hours from Vegas. The little bit I have driven this truck it is a definite head turner and attention grabber. The exhaust sounds phenomenal and the truck is just pure joy and bada$$ to drive. I am happy to take any additional photos, videos, phone calls, you name it to talk to a potential buyer about the vehicle.
