I love Toyota Landcruisers, and have always wanted to own one. The indestructible truck that has long been favored by safari guides, every guerrilla drug lord, rogue researchers, and even UN convoys has always held a special place in my heart.

While I always thought I would get an older-older one like an FJ-60, when I came across this FJ-80 about a year ago I bought it up. I had been seriously considering a Vanagon at the time, another vehicle I will have to own one day,  but the price was just right on this rig.  The truck which, has over 200k on the tachometer,  drives great. That is to say it drives like it has already driven 200k miles and and probably will drive another 200k.  The interior is nothing to brag about, and the exterior…well if you like Landcruisers there isn’t much explanation needed. Oh and Mrs. WildWood and the dog really like it too.
