The Toyota Land Cruiser BJ40 is a famously tough 4x4 that bears close resemblance to its sibling, the petrol-powered FJ40. These two off-roaders are uncompromising, spartan vehicles designed for use in the harshest environments on Earth, in fact many of them are still in use today across North America. The primary difference between the FJ40 and the BJ40 is the engine; the FJ is a petrol engine and the BJ runs on diesel. There’s no small amount of debate over which is better, but one can’t help but think that the fuel economy and reliability benefits of the diesel would win out over the better power characteristics of the petrol. These vehicles are one of the few that’ll still be running after the end of the world so today’s BJ40 could be a really good rainy-day investment.
The paint and graphics on this BJ are very sharp with a very custom look. A modern LED light bar tops the folding windscreen, with a tight and clean fabric soft top with roll-up side curtains covering the passengers. The body is slightly lifted to accommodate new suspension and larger custom alloy wheels, with vinyl wheel arch trim added. This BJ is the last year featuring fully removable doors and a lay-down windscreen. Folding jump seats in the rear make carrying passengers a reality while still allowing ample cargo space. Inside, high-back bucket seats are featured, with clean floors and a dash that looks great with a newer CD stereo and subwoofer in place. A custom Nissan tilt steering wheel is a nice touch, making entry and exit a snap. It’s a clean and comfortable interior the whole family can enjoy due to the jump seats in the rear. The diesel engine runs quietly and confidently and allows this 4WD truck to climb nearly anything with ease. Enjoy impressive performance and versatility in this fine BJ40.
