1997 Toyota Land Cruiser 4dr SUV 4WD


I purchased the LC 2 years ago with 182K miles on her. For the price of an ATV i decided why not.
I've also researched these things and they can exceed 500K at least. Since most of them are shipped to south america and africa i had to have one.

Immediately based lined it and spent another $2,000 . All in all, It was a $10,000 dollar investment which included tires, head gasket fix, PHH tube and a new drive shaft front and rear, Knuckes etc.

There is a feeling you get when you drive this cruiser that no other car gives you. Its craftsmanship and over engineering is evident once you hit the throttle. The off-road capability is overwhelming and you are in complete control.

Best Features

Front and rear lockers for serious off-roading. The ground clearance. For a 15 year old car its road visibility is amazing. The sun roof is still in good condition.

Worst Features

Shakey driver side mirror due to age, window motors are weakening other than that just make sure you perform the base lining after you get one.
