97 FZJ80

Hey All RichieFromBoston
1997 land cruiser FZj80
TheGreenMonstah
Bought it erlier in the year off the IH8MUD forum drove from Boston to Alabama to pick her up.
She was built up by a previous owner and then sold twice and neither owner really kept her up. So I got her 250000 on the clock New top end and TRD supercharger 4in king spring lift and radflo shocks Slee panhard TRE etc and metaltech rock sliders and 4Bylabs front.rear.
I put new Slee 2.5 resovoir shocks on her, installed 2 odyssey extrems and replaced the IBS battery managemnt with a national luna. I built a roofrack out of 1in hannah steel and threw a roofnest on top. as well as a full compliment of rigids all seperatly switched thru fact. switches. I also wired in a bussman fuse block under the hood and ran wiring to the rear for a 45qt fridge and a 1000 watt magnum inverter/charger. I just got a set of leather b;acl corbeau sports and a tuffy center console. Im also adding a newly arrived rhino rack foxwing. Also i originally put a smittybilt 12kx20 but rplaced it with a warn 12vrS with a factor 55 superhook. Shes rolling on 37in mud grapplers on 17 in ION rims for now. I never stop adding and repalcing it its a serious addcition, Ive owned it 7 months and its been cross country twice lots of vids on it on youtube under JAILBREAK OVERLANDER

New mods almost daily since your purchase, is there an end in sight?
 
yes almost done. I mod it because its always being used its my offroad office so to speak. And I always give back to those that have helped me along on this journey I have old shocks installed on a cruiser in grand junction control arms in upstate new york etc.

Just bought my first LC - '95 80 series. No mods yet. Plan to build an overland rig and explore the Midwest and all points out from there.... Plan to use her to get me out for camping, backpacking, landscape photography, kayaking, etc. Really excited to get rolling. Just bought her to replace my Land Rover D1.
