1999 Toyota Land Cruiser Locked And Ome Lifted on 2040-cars
of this cruiser is in excellent shape as you can see by the pictures
Dallas, Texas, United States
You are bidding on a fantastic 1999 Toyota Land Cruiser that I have owned for the last 8 years. I just finished restoring my 1989 Toyota FJ62 and unfortunately I cannot keep both Land Cruisers. I have two kids in daycare and a two car garage and just can't afford or justify keeping one of my cruisers permanently out of the garage. I hate to see her go but I'm sure someone else will enjoy it more than I am these days.
The truck is fully loaded on the interior with leather, sunroof, heated seats, heated mirrors, cruiser control, dual air bags and tinted windows. The cruiser does have third row seats so you have plenty of room for family and friends. I cleaned and conditioned the interior leather on a regular basis with Leatherique (great product even if you don't buy my cruiser). The leather does show some wear in places but check out the pictures to see how clean and well kept the interior is maintained. The carpet and carpet mats have not seen a single shoe print in 8 years due to front/rear Husky Liners. I believe you will agree the interior of the vehicle is in amazing shape. The truck has not been smoked in since I've owned it but there are two small burns in the carpet (one in the far rear cargo area and one near the front driver side carpet). Most people would not notice but just want to be up front about any possible issues with the truck. If I were keeping the truck I could certainly replace the radio since the stock CD/Tape player is finicky on whether or not it wants to play CDs (I know I'm showing my age due to the fact I even own CDs). I just replaced the stereo in my FJ62 and it's so much nicer with satellite, bluetooth, etc...can't believe I haven't replaced the stereo in this cruiser. While we are on the topic of the radio the automatic antenna doesn't automatically retract anymore but it just never bothered me enough to fix.
The exterior of this cruiser is in excellent shape as you can see by the pictures. I had the truck fully detailed at least once a year to keep both the exterior and interior in top shape. The cruiser is factory equipped with center and rear locking differentials for added traction off-road (this truck did not see off-road but it did come in handy during a few Dallas ice storms). This cruiser is equipped with a an OME lift, Slee differential drop kit and OME shocks up front. The previous owner did not install the OME rear coils to keep the stance of the cruiser level. I am including the brand-new coils and OME shocks in case the new owner would like to install the rear coils and shocks. You can read about the full lift kit at Slee Off Road and also research on the IH8MUD forum if you would like additional information on Land Cruisers (Ebay no longer allows links in descriptions but you can find both Slee and the forum with a quick Google search). In addition to the lift the cruiser has 18x9 ATS wheels with 325/60R18 Nitto Terra Grappler tires. The set of tires has ~20k miles on them but you can see by the pictures there is plenty of tread left. Due to the size of the tires If you have the wheels cut all the way either direction and hit a bump there is slight rubbing. My first set of Terra Grapplers lasted almost 50k but keep in mind I only put 8k miles per year on the cruiser with no long trips or offroad driving (I know it's a shame I haven used the cruiser for it's intended off road purpose). In 2008 when the vehicle was parked a neighbor backed into the rear quarter panel. The damage was promptly fixed through Toyota of Plano and I've had no issues at all with the work. Please view all of the pictures and let me know if you have any questions.
Other than replacing the oxygen sensors I have not had a single issue mechanically with this truck in 8 years. You will notice the truck is freshly detailed but I asked them not to clean anything in the engine compartment so you would see as-is condition. It's a little dusty in the engine compartment but no leaks or issues of any kind that I'm aware of. Below is a list of the major upgrades / maintenance performed on the truck:
If you have any questions or would like to see any addition pictures of specific areas of the truck please let me know. I will try to accommodate local test drives or vehicle inspections to be arranged by the bidder. The vehicle is used and is offered with no warranty. The winning bidder must make a $500 deposit via Paypal within 48 hours of auction end. The buyer is responsible for shipping but I would be happy to meet a shipping company locally to coordinate drop off / pick up. Thanks and happy bidding!

For over a year now, we've been hearing about a potential partnership between Toyota and BMW on everything from sports cars to lithium-ion batteries, but one of the first cooperative projects between these two automakers could bring Toyota's hydrogen fuel cell technology to a BMW vehicle. Reuters is reporting that an announcement is likely to be made as soon as later this week regarding a BMW fuel cell vehicle that could be in production by 2020 with a prototype running around by 2015.

The last we heard of Toyota's fuel cell technology, it was in the FCV-R Concept that we saw at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, but there is no word how far along in development this system is. If it does come to fruition, such a vehicle for BMW would build on the automaker's commitment to hydrogen that started with the Hydrogen 7, which unlike a fuel cell vehicle, simply ran on hydrogen fuel rather than converting it to electricity for use in motors. We're definitely interested where this Toyota/BMW tie up could be headed.
Subaru may or may not produce an STI version of the BRZ. Things seem to go back and forth on the subject. But Subaru Tecnica International isn't the only company with a history of tuning Subies. So does Cosworth, and now the British racing firm appears to be turning its attention to the BRZ and its Toyota- and Scion-badged siblings.

For those unacquainted, Cosworth is more than your average tuning company. It's a racing firm first and foremost, having made F1 engines under its own name as well as Ford's (chief among them the all-conquering DFV 3.0-liter V8 of 1960s and 70s fame), not to mention engines for Indy, rally and even high-performance, road-going versions of the Ford Sierra, Chevy Vega and Mercedes 190E. The list goes on and on, but you get the point.
Now withdrawing from Formula One, Cosworth is focusing its attention on tuning road cars again with the launch of the Cosworth Power Package line, the first of which will focus on the Toyota GT86 (aka Scion FR-S) and Subaru BRZ. We don't know just yet what will be included in the packaged dubbed FA-20, but from the video teaser below, it seems there'll be upgrades to the exhaust, suspension, aero and - if we're lucky - maybe a super- or turbocharger for the 2.0-liter flat-four engine. We'll have to wait and see, but we get the feeling that with Cosworth on the job, it'll be worth the wait. Check out the minute-long video below in the meantime.
To the general public, Toyota is often thought of as a maker of bland but dependable cars, crossovers and SUVs that get their owners and a whole herd of whatever from Point A to Point B. Generally speaking, they're fuel efficient, comfortable and affordable. What the general public may not realize, however, is that Toyota enjoys a very strong history of going off road, too. The legendary Land Cruiser arguably established the trend, helping explore remote parts of the globe, while various guerilla warfare outfits and world military branches have unwittingly joined up with the boys from Top Gear to help cement the Hilux pickup's reputation for invincible performance. Now, though, Toyota is launching a new line of trucks and SUVs in the US that are even more explicitly targeted at hitting the trails. Meet the TRD Pro Series.
Featuring the 4Runner, Tacoma and Tundra, each Pro Series vehicle features TRD-tuned springs with Bilstein shocks, a TRD front skid plate, a TRD shifter, black wheels, branded floor mats and a "TOYOTA" grille badge, the latter of which harkens back to classic models. TRD Pro Series vehicles will be offered in the new Inferno paint color shown above, as well as Black and Super White.
The Tundra benefits from softer TRD springs that also provide a two-inch lift and a better ride in the rough, while the truck itself rides on 18-inch wheels with Michelin ORP tires. Each truck gains an extra two inches of wheel travel in front and 1.25 inches in back, while a TRD dual exhaust should generate a nicer sound than the trucks's standard V8 engine. Finally, a unique interior with red contrast stitching freshen up the cabin. We wouldn't go so far as to call this a Ford F-150 SVT Raptor fighter - far from it, in fact - but it's a bit more off-road oriented than your average pickup.
