Welcome to the Legendary Toyota Land Cruiser

Don’t be fooled by its humble appearance, it has been used all over the globe in some of the most challenging environments. It is world renown for dependability, reliability, and the courage to go places other vehicles won’t even attempt. It is, as they say, an Icon. Here at Land Cruiser Restorations we specialize in the maintenance and restoration of all series Toyota Land Cruisers.  We specialize in the popular engine upgrades to a more modern power plant such as the GM v8 conversions. These v8 engine swaps are perfect candidates to accept the Chevy 5.3, 5.7, and 6.0 Vortec engine matched with the 4L60E or 6L80E. If you are the current owner of one of these legends or interested in owning a Land Cruiser, please feel free to contact us by email or just give us a call at 1-316-992-5986.

FJ60 vs FJ62 – Major Differences

“The FJ60 vs FJ62 question is a common one when considering the FJ60 series Land Cruiser. First let me tell you that you can’t go wrong with either one. They are both built from the same rugged platform. In my opinion, it comes down to personal preference rather than which one is better than the other. Toyota continually made minor improvements from year to year in the FJ60 series and there are too many minor improvements and differences between FJ60s and FJ62s to list. Therefore, it is most helpful to focus on the major differences between the two. First introduced the FJ60 in 1981, it’s production ending in 1987. The following year the upgraded version, FJ62 entered the market and ran until 1990.
