Want an 80 Series Land Cruiser on 40s With No Lift?
Just look at those fenders!
Normally, there's a great deal of suspension work required to get an 80 Series Land Cruiser on to 40s but not this one. It's named Clifford, and it's a 1997 Toyota Land Cruiser that has remained mostly stock, save for those massive tires.
According to the posting on a Utah digital marketplace, the factory sheet metal on the 80 Series Land Cruiser was cut and rolled back 7 inches to accommodate the larger 40-inch Nitto Mud Grappler tires and Method beadlocks. New inner and outer fender wells accompany the bodywork, and as a result, a few items beneath the hood were also relocated. In the posting, the owner claims to have all interior and exterior parts that were removed from the 80 Series Land Cruiser during the process, as well as some high-value OEM red paint.
If you can take your eyes off of the tires and look inside the 80 Series Land Cruiser, you'll see 218,000 miles on the clock, functioning air conditioning, and what the current owner calls an "8.5 out of 10" and "100 percent stock" interior, minus the aftermarket sound system.
This 1997 80 Series Land Cruiser is a work in progress, and it could be yours! We saw the vehicle listed for $23,000 in Hurricane, Utah, so act fast if you want this as the basis for your next project.
