Description of 1988 Toyota Land Cruiser

The Toyota Land Cruiser BJ74 LX is the heavy duty, medium wheelbase 70 series model, with a spacious rear seat, PTO winch and several feet of cargo space behind that. The seat folds forward to provide a full cargo bed. The 70 series are some of the toughest trucks Toyota ever made. The only reason I'm selling this is because I want a BJ75 or HZJ75; a slightly longer truck to convert to a camper. I am open to trades for these models.
-Truck is running well and has been a daily driver for three years. Well taken care of. Originally imported from Japan to Canada, then soon after moved to Texas.-Legendary 13B-T, 4-cylinder turbo diesel engine, with 5 speed H55F manual transmission. Gets between 21-27 mpg depending on how you drive it/size of tires. These engines are famous for running 1 million+ miles with a rebuild or two.-It has 360xxx kilometers (about 221k miles )-Right hand drive.-Rebuilt alternator-Comes with the factory PTO winch (powered by transmission directly, very strong) though will need to be re-installed.-Front axle was recently rebuilt, with abigger front caliper from FJ-60-New front Spartan mechanical locker-Transfer case and 4x4 work great.-Power steering-Factory A/C, blows cold but has a slow leak, needs recharge every 4 to 5 months.-Heater works great.-Newer aftermarket radio/CD player works.-No cracks in the windshield.-FRP top in good condition, could use new window seals on rear windows, but no leaks at the moment.-Manual windows, automatic locks.-Tow hitch installed.-Safari snorkel-Rear seatbelts-nice custom side rails and bumpers-FRP (fiberglass) top is easily removable, and the front windshield folds down.-Digital (PDF) english language repair and maintenancemanuals for Transmission, Engine, and Chassis included.
-Very clean exterior paint and body.-The interior is in good shape. Seats in excellent condition except one small tear in the passenger side front seat, and a little scuff on the vinyl of the drivers side. Carpet in great shape. A few rips in the back roof liner, though front roof liner clean. Dash is in good shape, except for one crack on the passenger side vinyl. Cabin light works.-Solid frame
-2.5 inch lift kit-It has almost new tires (BG Goodrich 33) with newer FJ cruiser wheels, with a spare.-Clean title
-It had some rust on the fender like all the 70 series. Most of the rusted panels were replaced with new sheet metal, sound dampening, and painted. It's not rust free but most of it is gone.-Small oil leak typical of a 30 year old truck and most Landcruisers.-Turbo smokes a little bit after idling for 10 minutes. Can be rebuilt or replaced with a new $200 turbo, but it functions perfectly and does not affect performance or threaten anything.-Starter takes two seconds to wind down after crank, but starts every time, even after sitting in the cold for weeks. Will last a lot longer, and could have it rebuilt.
