Overland Classifieds :: 1986 Toyota FJ60

We’ve had many heavily modified rigs posted to our forum, including this epic Lexus GX460, but today’s FJ60 has to be one of the most extreme. If you’re in the market for an around-the-world overlanding rig, look away now, but if you want to crawl technical terrain in unparalleled style, it’s your lucky day! “Built to crawl,” there’s no mistaking this is a vehicle designed to conquer challenging terrain, featuring a “crazy low-low” 235:1 gear ratio, custom high clearance bumpers, heavy-duty armor, and monster 38-inch Super Swamper TSL tires. There are many rigs advertised as “the ultimate crawler,” but in reality, they’re just stock 4WDs with huge lifts and big tires Today’s Toyota is a legitimate hardcore crawler, built from the ground up.

From the Seller:

This is a super clean rig with a lot of extras. Everything works as it should, clean title, NYS registered and inspected. Very well maintained. I have poured my heart and soul, blood, sweat, and tears, and a ton of time and loving attention into this truck. It pains me to let it go, but I’m turning 65, and my priorities are changing.”
