This 1976 Toyota Land Cruiser is powered by a GM 5.3-liter LM7 V8 mated to a 4L60E automatic transmission, an Atlas II twin-stick transfer case, a Dynatrac high-pinion Dana 60 front axle, and a full-floating 14-bolt rear axle. The truck has been repainted in olive drab green paint and a Raptor Liner tub, and additional modifications include boxed and plated frame rails, three-link front suspension with a Panhard bar and King remote-reservoir coilovers, a custom front bumper and rock sliders, front and rear winches, four-wheel disc brakes, double-beadlock wheels with 40″ tires, a MetalTech roll cage, heated Subaru front seats and Jeep rear seats, marine-grade audio equipment, and more. The most recent service is said to have included replacement of the brake calipers, lines, and pads as well as fluid changes. This FJ40 is offered after two years under current ownership with full hard doors, a bikini top, recovery gear, spare parts, and a clean Georgia title in the seller’s name.
The body was coated in epoxy primer and single-stage olive drab green paint according to the seller. The custom front bumper features a 9,500-lb. winch with a remote control, a roller fairlead, recovery shackles, and a 10″ Baja Designs OnX6 light bar, while a 2,500-lb. pull-down winch is located out back. The truck has also been fitted with a MetalTech roll cage, custom rock sliders, rocker panel protection, polyurethane body mounts, replacement grade-8 zinc coated hardware from Mcmaster Carr, and more. Heated LED headlights from Truck-Lite have been installed along with non-heated taillamps.
This FJ sits on two-piece 17″x8.5″ Hutchinson Rock Monster double-beadlock wheels mounted with 40″x13.5″ Pro Comp Xtreme MT2 tires, including the spare on the swing-down rear carrier. The suspension features a three-link front end with Currie joints, 16″ King remote-reservoir coilovers, a Panhard bar, Rough Country 3″ leaf springs, and Bilstein rear shocks. Timbren progressive bump stops are mounted up front with nitrogen-charged Fox air bump stops out back. Brake upgrades include a four-wheel disc conversion with Ford F-250 front calipers, Chevrolet K20 rear calipers, a Toyota T100 dual-diaphragm booster, and a one-ton master cylinder as well as a button-activated line lock. A Saginaw 800-series steering gearbox has been fitted along with a Borgeson steering shaft and U-joints.
The interior and bottom of the tub were sprayed with Raptor Liner prior to reassembly and is fitted with heated front seats from a Subaru WRX, Mastercraft harnesses, a lockable Tuffy center console, a fold-and-tumble rear bench from a Jeep Wrangler, a Husky rear storage compartment, a Lokar shifter, and a Gobi heater. JL Audio marine components include four roll-cage mounted speakers and two 8″ subwoofers in a custom enclosure.
A Switch Pros SP 9100 power panel with an eight-function touchpad is mounted in the dash, which also houses Speedhut instruments consisting of a speedometer and tachometer as well as gauges for coolant and oil temperature, fuel level, oil pressure, and voltage . Approximately 600 miles are said to show on the digital odometer, with total chassis mileage unknown.

A 4L60E automatic transmission with an integrated cooler from Tilden Motorsports in Gilroy, California routes power to the front, rear, or all four wheels through a two-speed 4.3:1 Atlas II twin-stick transfer case.
