1997 Toyota Land Cruiser 4dr SUV 4WD


This SUV is the most over built truck on the market. Pulls like Missouri mule, but has a decent enough ride for long trips. I pull a 6500# sailboat from time to time and the old girl hardly grunts. 113,000 miles and she's still a baby. AWD is flawless. Need to replace the locker switch ($600 - ouch), so be sure to exercise yours! Never stuck, no rattles, solid truck. Engine is bullet proof. I have 3 guys that want to buy her when I am done and they don't care I am done. I'll endure the poor mileage to drive this SUV.

Best Features

Added a Japanese issue, in-dash, slide out, OEM cup holder. EZ upgrade. Even w/o the locker switch, the AWD is shocking at what it can do. LOTS of room for hauling if need be.

Worst Features

Drivers side seat can be uncomfortable after several hours of driving. The newer models have better seats and deeper wells for your legs and feet. The power seat controls are tough to get at when the door is closed, was corrected in the later models.
