Owner Description

It’s not so much that a man chooses his journey, but that the journey chooses the man.  The experience had been trying. He had to empty all his stores of bravery, strength, and survival instinct. After years of preparation, things he never thought would matter had culminated to this one moment. It was the moment that mattered most. The moment that would define him for the rest of his days. Now, atop his steadfast and freeborn red cruiser, the rising sun, a poetic end to a life-changing adventure.

This rust-free Cruiser is a rare find.  Professionally restored in 2015, the following items were completed:

– Complete body work removing any imperfections.

– Primed, painted three times with “Freeborn Red” and finally two coats of clear coat applied.

– Undercoated with a 3M rubberized product to protect it from the elements.

– The rims, front and rear bumpers, and roof rack have been professionally powder coated.

– Engine tuned up with new spark plugs and wires.

– All fluids replaced

– All hoses and belts replaced.

– New tires installed, mounted and balanced.

– A/C system converted to R134A refrigerant.

– Radiator and engine block flushed and replenished with new anti-freeze.

– The vehicle comes with an aftermarket back-up camera.

 

SOLD! 1989 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ62, Lifted & Trail-Ready

Overview:

This 1989 FJ62 was owned by the same family since the late 90s. It sports an Old Man Emu lift, oversized tires on 16″ rims, an ARB front bumper, ARB rock sliders, and a roof rack with a spare tire carrier mount. Includes a Pioneer AM/FM/CD radio with matching 6-disc changer, original owners manual, bottle jack and tool kit. Also includes a fair amount of service records. Engine was completely replaced in the early 1990s.

Details:

  • Dark gray exterior, blue interior
  • 285/75/r16 BFG A/T tires (33.5″ tires)
  • View 200+ photos below and download/view super high res versions here (part 1) and here (part 2)
  • Located in Monument, Colorado
  • VIN: JT3FJ62G3K1112832

The Good:

  • Runs and shifts smooth
  • BFG tires have a year or so left tread-wise
  • Trail-ready FJ with about $3k worth of upgrades in the tires, fog lights, suspension, ARB front bumper, rock slider and roof rack alone.
  • AM/FM/CD with 6-disc changer

The So-So:

  • Speedo stopped working years ago. Previous owner guessed the mileage to be around 270k.
  • Runs but sat for a while and needs a tune up, all fluids changed, and will need a new air intake hose (currently taped as a temporary fix; it sucks air in and throws off the system and runs like crap otherwise)
  • Front seat bottoms are pretty beat in the front under the seat covers. Front seat backs are fine.
  • Horn and rear wiper not working
  • Has rust, but limited to the body and priced accordingly.

SOLD! 1988 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ62

FOR SALE: 1988 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ62

For sale from a Red Line Customer

CUSTOMER OVERVIEW:

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.

Details:

  • 237,000 miles
  • Clean Colorado Title
  • Automatic transmission
  • VIN:
  • JT3FJ62G6J0088501

  • Located in Monument, Colorado
  • Power windows and locks
  • Power steering
  • Tow hitch/receiver
  • If you need shipping…I’ve used Summit Auto Transport several times and they’re very reliable. For a shipping quote, go to www.SummitAutoTransport.com

The good:

  • Daily driver
  • Engine runs strong and smooth
  • Transmission shifts smooth through all gears
  • Interior in excellent condition and very clean including the original carpet and upholstery.
  • Non-smoker, no pets
  • Tires are practically brand new – 31″ x 10.5 x r15 Goodyear Wranglers
  • New CD/AM/FM radio with USB and AUX inputs; sounds great

Recent Work Includes:

  • Thermostat, thermostat housing gasket, water inlet gasket, hoses and coolant replaced at 236,000
  • New PCV Valve, plugs, cap and rotor, plug wires, air filter, and battery terminal ends replaced at 236,000
  • New front sway bar bushings at 236,000
  • New muffler and exhaust pipe at 231,000
  • New front windshield in 2014
  • Transmission flush at 219,000
  • New battery at 219,000
  • New alternator at 218,000
  • Front axle rebuilt at 215,000
  • New belts at 214,000
  • Rebuilt power steering pump at 212,000
  • New brake rotors, pads, shoes at 209,000

The so-so:

  • 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 bad:

  • 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.

SOLD! 1977 FJ40

FOR SALE: 1977 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40

Vehicle Highlights:

Price: $29,000
Miles: 73,000
Location: Vacaville, CA

Customer Description:

SUPER CLEAN 1977 FJ-40 Land Cruiser.  This is a California Smog Legal V-8 conversion that recently passed Smog.  This was initially sold in 1977 in Colorado (I have the Original sticker price + Original Owner’s Manual + Original Service Manual + Original green canvas tool kit bag).  My Dad purchased the vehicle in 1978 and I purchased it from him in 1992. This FJ-40 has not been restored.  However, it has been kept in a garage and is SUPER CLEAN. Every time you drive somewhere you will receive compliments on it.

It has a 5.7L TBI V-8 engine donated from a 1/2 ton 1994 Chevy pick-up. The total mileage on the FJ-40 itself is approximately 55k miles.  The total mileage on the 5.7L V-8 is approximately 73k miles.  I would’ve loved to have kept the stock 6-cylinder, however, California Smog regulations prevented me from doing so.

You can literally drive this vehicle at 70-75 mph comfortably on the freeway to the trailhead. You can get out of the cab, lock in the hubs, engage the Orion transfer case (4:1) and go wheelin’.  Why tow your rig to the trailhead when you can simply drive there?  You can also haul the family around in comfort.
