Overland Classifieds :: 2008 Toyota Land Cruiser 200 Series

If we’re talking about the ultimate do-it-all vehicle, then the 200 Series Land Cruiser is a top contender. This iconic 4WD showcases plush interior luxury (and seating for seven), is comfortable around town and on the highway, and is legendary when the tarmac ends. The engines and drivetrains are bulletproof, build quality is class-leading, and parts are available worldwide. If that wasn’t enough, a vast array of aftermarket parts, accessories, and services can take this already formidable platform and further uprate it for off-grid travel. We’ve featured several adventure-ready examples, including Expedition Overland’s 2016 200 Series and this 2016 overland build. If you’d like a better idea of how this rig can be outfitted for long-term travel, check out these inspiring versions from Staples in Tents and Greg Miller. Additionally, head to the Car Stories YouTube channel and see how the 200 Series handles challenging terrain (including a terrifying river crossing). Today’s example has covered 143,000 miles and features an extensive list of premium modifications and a Bush Clamshell rooftop tent.

From the Seller:

If you’re interested in our 200 Series, I would like to refer you to the YouTube channel ‘JailBreak Overlander’ and search video title ‘Ultimate Overland 200 Series’ for all the details as well as the build sheet. We have lowered the price considerably since posting the video. We have spent over $60,000 in modifications, and the 200 has been kept in pristine condition. There are no issues; it has only been serviced at Toyota dealerships. It’s been in climate-controlled storage for the past three years as it’s too tall to fit in our garage.”
