Here are the specs from the for sale ad:

Full-size spare (Irok) on steel wheel, brand new, never touched the ground

Internal roll cage (Marlin Crawler kit)
Master Craft suspension seats
Custom-built flatbed and storage boxes
Warn M8000 winch with in-cab control

Other Upgrades

Wow...great find!
Horribly Painted '95 FZJ80 Has Some - Still Needs More!
"I drive an ECO-FRIENDLY FZJ80...It's got a salvage title which makes it a RECYCLED vehicle. Therefore, don't mess with me when I park in the "Reserved for Green Vehicle" spots in Boulder!!!
