FJ Cruiser (2006-2014)
The newest member of the Land Cruiser is the FJ Cruiser. Simplicity, clarity of purpose and versatility. The new FJ invokes the free spirit and original character of the FJ40, in a more comfortable and contemporary way. TLC has worked with Toyota since 2000 on the FJ product, and we build the three first prototype design study vehicles for the project. Along the way as the FJ neared its final form, we worked closely with Toyota to keep the FJ DNA intact.
Based on the proven new 4Runner platform, the FJ features a reliable and efficient 4.0 V6, with an automatic or manual transmission. Do not expect it replace your FJ40, because modern vehicle production and design must adhere to a different of priorities than afforded the industry in the old days. However, the FJ is a very comfortable vehicle, off-road capable, and a blast to drive.
TLC encouraged Toyota to offer the factory locking rear differential option, triple wipers as found in some non US FJ40's, a washable interior floor with rubber mats, and other options and equipment catering to real utility! Numerous options and accessories are available since TLC to add character and utility to your FJ ranging since suspension systems, bullbars, lighting, front differential ARB air locker, wheels and tires, brake system upgrades and more.
