Toyota Land Cruiser BJ41

The Toyota Land Cruiser 40-series is known as a legendary platform around the world. In the US, most are familiar with the FJ40 model, a gas-powered 4x4 available up until 1984. This vehicle is designated as a BJ41, a diesel powered variant available exclusively in the Japanese domestic market (abbreviated as JDM). As an importer of 4x4 Land Cruisers, I couldn't pass up on the opportunity to purchase and import this "time capsule" of Toyota Land Cruiser history. This vehicle is a great addition to any collection. The originality and low mileage makes this one of the rarest 40's in the United States today.

One-Owner, Very Original Condition

This BJ41 is confirmed to be a one-owner, well-maintained vehicle. The photos show the condition and tell the story. The body is nearly perfect with the exception of a small bit of previous repair in the rear by the driver tail light. The interior is immaculate! There's a small tear in the bottom side of the drivers seat cover, but otherwise it looks like it left the factory yesterday. This BJ41 has the optional rear heater, rear jumpseats and the very rare factory air conditioning. It also has the original split-rim wheels, and vintage tires. Also included is a stack of original documentation and paperwork.

Everything works on this BJ41, including the air conditioning which was recharged with original R12. It has the original factory radio as well as a secondary Kenwood deck installed by the original owner. Speakers were also installed in the rear cabin by the original owner. The odometer shows 64,811 original KM's (40,271 miles), and the service records included with the vehicle verify that as the original mileage. It runs and drives great, like a nearly new 40 series should.

BJ41 Drivetrain

The 40 series is a legendary platform known for toughness and reliability. This BJ41 is similar to the units available in the US except for its 2B diesel engine and low gear transmission. The 2B is a 3168cc inline 4-cylinder 8-valve OHV diesel engine. Compression ratio is 21:1 with output being 93HP at 2200RPM and 159 ft-lb of torque at 2200RPM. This engine was only available in JDM BJ41's, JDM BJ44's and the JDM Coaster (Toyota's small bus platform) making this a rare collectible Land Cruiser. The transmission is an H41 4-speed which is geared lower than the standard 4-speeds available with US spec 40 series Land Cruisers. This BJ41 has an ultra-low 5.29:1 first gear! The 2-speed transfer case has a low range of 1.959:1. The axles are the same as the US spec 40 series, 9.25" ring gear, open differential with 4.11:1 gear ratio.

Owning a Right-Hand-Drive Import

First, this is a 100% legal and documented import vehicle. I have copies of all the customs, EPA, DOT and import paperwork that go with the vehicle to the new owner. This Land Cruiser has been titled in Missouri, and can be legally titled and driven in all 50 states. Replacement parts and accessories are generally available to ensure a long life of service. Driving a right-hand-drive vehicle is not nearly as difficult as it might first appear. After a few minutes, any driver can become comfortable with driving "on the wrong side." The uniqueness of this setup starts conversations and turns heads everywhere you go.

Toyota sudden acceleration class action may cover 22 million owners

Thu, 16 May 2013 09:29:00 EST

A total of 22.6 million current and former Toyota owners have been sent notices that they may be eligible to receive compensation from the automaker for damages related to the unintended acceleration fiasco that has dominated headlines in 2009 and 2010. The total payout may be as high as $1.63 billion, according to The Detroit News.
Steve Berman, a lawyer for the owners, calls the potential deal "a landmark, if not a record, settlement in automobile defects class action litigation in the United States." Still, there's some debate about whether or not Toyota's proposed settlement is fair, as it includes $30 million for safety research and driver education programs - in other words, Toyota seems to be suggesting that drivers need more education on how to drive their correctly working and fully functional vehicles. For those keeping track, Toyota would also be paying lawyer fees of $200 million.
A US District Judge in California is scheduled to hold a so-called "fairness hearing" on June 14 that could decide the fate of this particular settlement. Further courtroom wrangling will be required to hash out any wrongful death suits levied against Toyota stemming from unintended acceleration claims, as those are not part of this class-action suit.

Toyota bids farewell to FJ Cruiser with Ultimate Edition at SEMA

Tue, 05 Nov 2013 15:59:00 EST

Happy trails, to you... As we reported back in August, the FJ Cruiser is headed to the great automotive graveyard in the sky, and Toyota is offering a fitting eulogy in the form of the 2014 Trail Teams Ultimate Edition, which was just unveiled here at the 2013 SEMA Show.
Unlike many special edition models, the Ultimate FJ Cruiser earns its name with a host of parts from Toyota Racing Development, starting with TRD Bilstein race shocks that Toyota says improve damping, articulation and high-speed stability. The front shocks measure 66 millimeters and feature TRD race coil springs, with geometry that improves the approach angle; the 50mm rear units are equipped with remote reservoirs to diminish damping fade.
A new one-quarter-inch thick aluminum TRD front skid plate offers protection for the underbody bits, and the outfit is completed with a BF Goodrich A/T KO tires on 16-inch bead lock wheels, rock rails and a roof rack. Check out the high-res image gallery above and the press release below for all the rest of the details.

Toyota expands airbag recall to 2.27M vehicles worldwide

Wed, 11 Jun 2014 10:55:00 EST

Was your Toyota inspected under the company's recall campaign for faulty airbag inflators last year? You might have another trip ahead to have it repaired again. The automotive giant says that it found "the involved serial numbers provided by the supplier were incomplete, and did not include all of the potentially involved inflators," according to its official announcement. That means more replacements are needed.
Toyota's April 2013 inflator recall covered the Corolla, Matrix and Tundra from the 2003 and 2004 model years, the Sequoia from 2002 to 2004 and the Lexus SC 430 from 2002 to 2004. At the time, the company said it would need to inspect about 510,000 vehicles in the US but only expected to replace around 170,000 inflators.
However, the latest announcement increases that figure to about 766,300 vehicles in the US. Toyota spokesperson Cindy Knight told Autoblog that the new amount is the combination of owners who need to have their vehicle looked at again and those who didn't come in for the initial recall. The company learned about the problem when Takata, the supplier, provided it with an improved list of the faulty part's serial numbers. According to The Detroit News, the latest recall affects about 2.27 million vehicles from them worldwide. Knight said owners would receive notification of the problem around the end of the month but repairs would come in phases because the automaker doesn't have all of the necessary parts at the moment.
