Overland Classifieds :: 1994 Toyota Land Cruiser FZJ80

The moment I recognised this stunning 1994 Land Cruiser FZJ80 listed on our forum, I had to feature it. First off, this beautiful rig was built by the amazing Foster Huntington,pro photographer,talented filmmaker, owner of Movie Mountain studio, overland fanatic, and successful author of iconic books such as Vanlife: Your Home on the Road and The Cinder Cone. If that wasn’t enough, this rig was built in partnership with industry experts Summit 4×4 and the legendary Fit Garage. This is a premium build, expertly configured, and sensibly priced—don’t miss out!

From the Seller:

I’m switching up my overlanding setup and selling my fully built 1994 Toyota Land Cruiser FZJ80. It has been upgraded for overland travel and is ready to go anywhere. The truck lived in Arizona for its first 25 years before being fully overhauled mechanically by Summit 4×4 in Prescott, Arizona, and then built for overland travel by Fit Garage in Bend, Oregon.”

The FZJ80 has a 650-kilogram maximum payload, 3,500-kilogram tow capacity, and up to 1,360 litres of cargo space. This particular model is becoming increasingly sought after, with a recent mint-condition example selling for a jaw-dropping $136,000 on bringatrailer.com.
