1993 Toyota Land Cruiser Description

1993 Toyota Land Cruiser FZJ80 Series.
Originally bought new in San Diego, I purchased from the second owner in San Francisco in Oct. 2009 w/ aprox 165k miles. He had just installed the OME medium lift with 25mm spacers ( aprox. 3" total lift) and new non winch ARB. I drove daily until I installed 37" Cooper STT's and 5.29 gears at 199k miles. Also rebuilt front and rear axles with all new bearings and seals at that time. Over $2k in parts alone.
Currently has 214k miles. I moved to the Denver area from Kansas City 6 years ago and have only wheeled it once, rarely driven, cannot justify letting it sit around and go to waste.
-regeared to 5.29's at 199k with 37" STT's, most tread remaining. All new bearings and seals.
-Diff fluids have been changed once since regear.
-T Case fluid changed a few thousand ago.
-Transmission fluid flushed right before regear, maybe 20k on fluid.
-Radiator and fan clutch replaced somewhere around 199k.
-Newer alternator.
-Newer pads and rotors on all 4 corners.
-Battery is brand new.
-New plugs, cap, rotor and wires last year.
It is 26 years old, it has your average signs of wear, but with that said, it's in pretty good condition for it's age.
Seats show typical discoloration and wear, still smooth and no tears or cracks. 3rd row seats included and in very good condition, not pictured. Small 1-2" tear in headliner. Window tint on right front door glass has some scratches. Has large rubber mats for front, middle and rear area.
Body, all original paint. A few small door dings and scuffs. Paint is a little dull, it could be polished to shine it up, I use to do it regularly but my tendinitiswon't do it anymore. NO Peeling paint unlike a lot of cruisers.
I did replace the upper tailgate with a used one due to it having a large dent. The new one has developed a small rust spot at the right lower corner of the glass from the weatherstrip rubbing the paint, pretty common on cruiser tail gates. Otherwise, ZERO rust, Cali cruiser.
The rockers both have a good sized dent from the one time I wheeled it. A Jeep broke down on the preferred route so I had to do things the hard way at the expense of the rockers. They're repairable but I'd just slap on some sliders to cover them up and be done.
The Bad...
-Antenna stuck down.
-Driver's side door speakers work at random, think it's a loose wire at the radio, looking into it.
-Rocker Dents
-ABS light is on because I have ABS unplugged. I believe there's a little too much grease around the front birfield's from axle rebuild. The excess grease is covering the ABS/speed sensors which causes the ABS to engage the last 1-2 mph when stopping, not a big deal but it was annoying so I unplugged. Driven several thousand miles since, it may or may not be better now.
-Has a slight whine at highway speed, pretty sure it's the front U joints. Rear was replaced a while back, new front U joints included but not installed.
-When stopping hard, it tends to pull to one side. Stops normal if you break normal. It's partially from too much positive caster due to the lift. Slee sells a castor correction kit for $200-300. It could also be the front rubber brake lines. I'd assume they are the original lines. They tend to swell internally with age which may not allow equal pressure which could cause it to pull. I planned to get extended rubber lines and be done. Aprox. $200.
The Autocheck shows 1 accident in 2011, I rolled into a lady in a Buick at a stop light, she decided to stop for no reason after starting to take off, 2-3 mph, no damage to the cruiser, the ARB bumper put a big dent in her trunk lid but no damage to the land cruiser or bumper.
-The tires on it wont pass inspect, CO allows up to 34", but it has 37"s. It comes with 5 gray FJ wheels but no 37" spare tire FYI. Also has 5 original 16" wheels and 4 mounted mediocre used tires (285/75/16) that will allow it to pass inspection but not enough tread for daily use.
