This 1988 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ62 is in very good, all original condition. Very clean inside and out and mechanically strong and reliable. It sports a late 80s era sunroof and roof rack, probably installed by Toyota when the truck was purchased in 88.

Rear electric window motors are slow/sluggish. They open and close, but the passenger side needs help going back up if you take it down to low
Blinker won’t shut off when you turn the corner. You have to manually click it off.
Brights turn on, but sometimes you have to pull back the lever and then swing it forward real quick. It’s the same switch as the blinker, so I’m guessing it just needs a new switch
It was repainted a few years back. From 10 feet away it looks great, but when you get up close you’ll see some of the paint chipping here and there. Nothing terrible…it looks like it was a good paint job, but it definitely wasn’t a super high-end paint job.
Has a few leaks. One looks like it’s in the t-case and the other is probably the rear main seal (which is pretty typical for Land Cruisers). A couple drips a day.
Can’t get the glove box open
Speedometer is off by about 3-4 mph. If you’re going 55, you’re really going about 51.
Power antenna motor works, but the antenna doesn’t go up and down. The antenna gets reception just fine as-is.
The passenger side rocker is pretty rusty. The rest of the truck is much better than average, but that rocker has a couple holes in it. I have a good used rust-free rocker panel from a 1986 FJ60 (same specs as the 88 FJ62) that goes along with the truck. It rusted out because of the chrome strip that used to come there. It’s pretty common…they hold in moisture and rust out by where they clip in by the doors.
Air Conditioning not working. It either needs a recharge (circa $100) or worst-case it needs a new compressor (circa $300)
All in all, this 1988 FJ62 is in great shape and ready for daily use. It’s been my daily driver and is very reliable.
Original owner never took it off road; used as a family SUV and well cared for and garaged
Water pump and fuel pump replaced in last 1,000 miles
Front axle rebuilt in last 10k miles
Original AM/FM radio works and is in mint condition
Original chrome trim all around including front windshield, top rain gutter, rear hatch window, and bottom chrome strips by lower part of doors (super rare to find anymore)
The seats were covered for their entire life with seat covers up front
Upholstery is in excellent condition
Rear lap belts work perfect (these start to be finnicky if used a lot)
Original tools, jack, jack rods, manual and trouble light with a mint, extremely hard to come by sleeve for the trouble light
4WD works perfect
Headliner is in perfect condition
Runs and drives great; been driving it daily; temp, oil pressure, voltage all right where they should be
The original dash is perfect; not a single crack, which is uber rare to find anymore
It does have some rust down where the chrome strips beneath the doors was attached. It is on the flat part of the metal, so in my mind it can be fixed by adding in new metal. If it had gone down into the rocker panels, that would make it extremely hard to repair, but it is not even close to the rockers and the rockers are perfect
Power steering pump whines a bit, especially when it’s cold
Needs a bit of a carb adjustment
Choke light bulb burned out
Lighting that lights up radio works intermittently (green-ish lighting that illuminates the dial)
Front driver’s seat bottom has a tear in the front part (you can find used OEM replacements)
The air/heat vent by the windows (drivers and passenger sides) is missing the “close” turn knobs. Never seen that before but you can replace these with good used ones which aren’t hard to come by
A few dings and scratches here and there, but nothing major

Here is a list of everything that’s great about this all-original Cruiser:
It runs PERFECT – drives 75mph easily on the interstate (there’s debate about Weber vs. Aisin and I have to say…I’m sold on this Weber carb set up. It’s got way more punch and gets much better has mileage).
No splits in the original dash (this is extremely rare)
Original AM/FM Tape deck with the operation manual
Original tool bag, tools, jack, and jack rods
Headliner is perfect
Original carpet in good condition
Only a minor bit of surface rust by the driver’s side rocker. This can easily be cleaned off.
Original chrome accents are bright and shiny
Original 4-speed manual transmission shifts smooth
4WD high and low functions perfectly
Engine runs strong – no issues
Clutch is in perfect shape
Heater (front and rear) works great
Newer tires with less than 5,000 miles on them
Original window sticker and check list that Toyota used before shipping from Japan included
This is an extremely original and clean one owner Land Cruiser – you’d be hard pressed to find one as clean!
Horn, knobs, switches, lights, windshield washer squirters (windshields and head light squirters) all work perfectly
Original trouble light still in original packaging
Carpet is a 8/10 and is very clean all around – I had it detailed and they cleaned the carpets
New wiper blades all around
New tail light lenses
Non-smoker and non pet-owner. Interior is very clean and smells nice 🙂
