    A Proven Overlanding Vehicle

    Yep, it's true. Equipt is selling it's flagship vehicle. It is time to start a new project truck, so this 1999 Toyota Land Cruiser UZJ100 is up for sale. The 100 Series has been touted as the best platform for overlanding available on the market today. A combination of capability, comfort, capacity and quality that is tough to beat. We have taken this platform just about a far as you can in preparation for expedition travel. And we have proven its ability in North America, Mexico and Central America. It is built to be a world travel vehicle.

    I have owned this truck for the last 12 years. It has been the best vehicle I have ever owned. Though it has been used well, it has been maintained equally well and has the Ultimate Overlander's Laundry List of modifications. From heavy duty suspension, to dual batteries, to full interior build out including a National Luna fridge and hot water shower system, this truck has it. I would happily get in this vehicle today and drive to Ushuaia and back.

    The odometer reads just over 268K on it, but it is far from worn out. We replaced the engine at 252K miles with a Japanese sourced 2UZFE. We replaced everything that could be a maintenance issue on the engine. Timing belt, water pump, full hose set, cleaned injectors, new radiator, plugs, etc. Just over $6K in replacement cost. The suspension is upgraded. We just replaced the rear springs to OME868s, the heavy ones. This is to carry the 45 gallon aux tank, bumper, drawers, fridge, and rack weight better. We have replaced brake pads and calipers as needed and have Toyota change the oil and filters regularly. The rear driveline was re-tubed and balanced last week. Anything that has required maintenance or replacement, we have taken care of with Toyota OEM parts.

    We have a custom drawer and clamshell interior in the vehicle currently. But it is completely removable and we have the second and third row seats in storage. You can remove the clam shells and return the second row to the vehicle and keep the drawers in the back. Or you can remove the fridge slide and drawer set and return the third row too. A complete swap would only take a couple hours.

    We will remove the Equipt decals at time of sale. The black below the door rail on the sides is vehicle wrap too. It can be removed if requested by purchaser.

    This 100 has been our show truck for the last 6 years. I am very meticulous about it's upkeep inside and out. We just had it professionally detailed this week as well. Here is the list of modifications.

    • 4.7L V8 EFI engine, replaced with Japan sourced used engine with 50K miles. New radiator, hoses, water pump, timing belt, etc.

    • Eezi-Awn K9 Roof Rack System, 2.2-meter length
    • Front Runner rear wheel utility step
    • ARB Safari Snorkel


    There are a couple things to note, just for full disclosure. There is a small dent in the passengers side front wheel well where a hi lift tipped into it in my garage about 5 years ago. There is a small dent that looks like a door ding in the drivers side rear door. It is from a awning leg wrapping up and over the truck in a Baja beach wind gust. There is a small dent in the drivers side front door from a Guatamalan jungle track. No rust at any of these points. There is also a faint gear hum at about 60ph that has been there since the gear/ARB swap and lift over 100K miles ago. I have had it checked multiple times to ensure there is no problem. You have to really listen for it. I am sure there are other small things, but nothing of real significance.

    I have enjoyed every minute in this truck. It will be missed greatly. Someone is going to get an incredible vehicle here.

    Please comment or contact me by PM, email or phone if you have questions. Email or phone is best. I will do my best to answer all inquiries. More photos to come.

    Wow. Can't believe this is for sale! Just a few years too soon for me. Good luck with the sale, but I'm sure you won't need it.

    Here are some shots of the bumpers and protection.

    ARB Sahara front bumper with custom uprights for limb risers. There is a 12,000 lb Warn in there, with a remote switch wired into the center dash console. It is the red locking Carrington switch by the ARB swithes. Viking synthetic line. New fogs installed last year and IPFs on top.

    ARB rear bumper with integrated dual tire swing outs. It is a great bumper, with gas struts and easy to use latches. I have installed a shovel mount behind the tire with quick fists. The Front Runner Spare Tire Utility Steps make a great beer holder.

    I designed and fabricated the sliders to look as close a possible to the factory steps as I could. They are bolted on, and made of 3/16" square tubing. Able to pivot the truck on these fully loaded.

    Wow! I wish I was in a position to change vehicles. That's a great deal!
    I have a goal in life... a goal that will take me down many roads and across many countries. This goal of mine is to not only explore but experience the different climates, cultures and terrain this world has to offer.

    I wish I was in the market to purchase right now, that is a great rig. Sorry to see that you are parting with it Paul, but I'm excited to see what you are replacing it with, any ideas? Whatever you build up, make sure it has room for the Lone Warrior Saloon!

    Very nice Paul. A fine example of a 100 series. I wouldn't mind having a white one to complement my black one but Tiff won't have it! GLWS!

    That price infuriates me knowing how much I've sunk into mine . I see $18k in upgrades alone in the photos. Anyone want a free 100 series with a new motor?
