An EPIC FJ55 Build

Updated: Nov 29, 2019

Most certainly one of the greatest Toyota Land Cruiser FJ55's in existence today. This Iron Pig was hand built to order by BTB Products and TLC 4x4 over the course of 30 months at a cost of $130,000. <p>

TLC Stage Three Restorations. TLC Land Cruisers are simply the best in the world. On display in Toyota's museum overseas and in service as daily drivers world wide, there are no more comprehensively restored Land Cruisers to be found. Born out of Jonathan Wards life long habit of taking vehicles all the way down to the frame and back up to new condition, these Cruisers surpass even our most demanding customers (including Toyota) expectations. <p>

This jaw dropping 1974 FJ55 is the quintessential pinnacle of FJ55's. Under the beautiful exterior you will find a 5.7L Vortec V8 Mfg. Part No. 12530282 installed new in 2013 along with a new radiator (mileage 27,635). Auto transmission, custom power steering, air conditioning, upgraded suspension. Rancho 9000 shocks. Custom exhaust with dual 45004 Magnaflow catalytic convertors and Magnaflow Performance muffler (Part# 12588) with one 3" Inlet and two 2.5" Outlets. Four wheel disc brakes. New fuel pump 2019. Every component of this truck was either new, rebuilt or hand crafter by some of the best builders in the USA.<p>

The body is rust free and stunning! According to the appraisal, much, if not all of the finishes are powder coating. There is no orange peel in the finish. It's like a mirror.

New BFG AT's wrapped around Weld Racing wheels. Custom interior featuring Honda Prelude Bucket Seats custom covered in ICON Chilewich and MB Tex textiles that adds surface character and comfort. Seat insert panels absorb heat. Rubber backed floor mats designed to match. Very durable and easy to clean. This build is documented with over 100 pages of receipts.
