Call/Text: Kevin 843-847-9736, Email[better]: kevin 272@gmail.com

CL AD: http://denver.craigslist.org/cto/5804150034.html

1988 Land Cruiser VX, HJ61 Turbo Diesel [Right Hand Drive]
4.0L 12H-T Engine & H55 Automatic Transmission [some of the best Toyota ever made]
171,xxx miles / 275,xxx km - [all gauges are metric] Low for this truck, this engine will do 400k-500k miles.Gets about 18mpg/city - 30mpg/hwy, doesnít burn oil, plug-in type lower radiator hose heater & battery blankets installed to help on cold mornings.

Imported from Japan to CO in late 2013 & Itís been my daily driver since then. Iím the only US owner. Clean CO title, always passes emissions. Any parts you need are available from a few US/Canadian suppliers [even Amazon]. I really love this truck, but I need a pickup for an upcoming renovation & canít justify two vehicles.

The VX model HJ61 is the top-of-the-line package, similar to the FJ62, with all factory options:
Power sunroof, windows, locks & mirrors
A/C - works perfect
Rear wiper & defrost
Fog lights
CD/Mini-disc player w/aux input
24v power w/12v converter to charge phones, etc

Push button 4wd - and standard Toyota H2-H4-HL setup
Factory Cable differential lockers
New Manual locking front hubs - replaced in last 3k miles
Bilstein Shocks - replaced in last 6k miles

The body is the classic FJ 60 Series with some unique features
ARB Bumper
Fender flares
High roof
Clear tail lights & side markers
BFG-AT 31ís w/75% tread left
Unique Rallye wheels [pretty cool]
Tow hitch & lights hook-up installed

The Cruiser has been trouble free in the last 3 years, I upgraded/replaced the tires & shocks, installed Optima Blue Top batteries along with the radiator hose heater & battery blankets to make cold starting easy - decrease engine wear. Added fog lights & upgraded the headlights along with the bumper & tow hitch. Basically made it ready for life in CO. Always kept really clean & services done regularly. Just pro-detailed top to bottom. Fresh oil/filters changes & fluid checkÖ.. Sheís ready for a new home.

H55F is a 5 speed manual. You've got the 61/62 auto in there. A441 or A442F, or something like that. 4 speed, overdrive auto

gr8fulabe - You're right. I believe it's an A440F... But either way it's an auto, not a manual. Thanks for lookin' out.
