    Someone is going to get a great SUV for not much money.

    The LX450 body style will be a collectible classic some day.

    Wish I had the extra space for it.

    GLWS.

    Shame that only a few years after this, the Land Cruiser was horribly styled and anonymous.

    Nice Tahoe rig! Suggest advertise Reno/Tahoe Craigslist. Folks seek these for sure. How are the all-terrain t/a's? Ever need MORE traction than they provide? GLWS

    I might go the BaT route, but I've had some interest locally.

    I agree that a rig like this would appeal to many folks out west. No issues with the BFGs Mang, I really haven't ever taken it off road but according to all the reviews out there, they present the perfect balance of both on and off road performance.

    355 Dreamer, If youre on facebook check out the group TLCA (Toyota Land Cruiser Association) and join Ih8mud.com. You will find a buyer on either of those sites. I currently own two 80 series, and would love to add this one to the collection, but don't have the room!

    Beautiful truck and GLWS!

    Sold...

    To a dealer no less. Guess there's more margin on this than I thought.

    Congrats on the sale!

    I have seen them fetching some serious money recently. Theyre becoming "classics" and the whole overlanding/rooftop tent scene is pretty serious right now. Being that this is about as luxurious and comfortable of a sfa rig out there, people are paying!

    What are you planning on replacing it with?

    Yes, you probably left some money on the table. I bought a 97 last year and it has pretty much become my main DD. I love mine.

    I just saw this. Would have been interested. Do you mind sharing what your asking price was?
