Wish my gub'mint would let me have it. My Canadian is a bit rusty, but isn't C22K a lot for a 270km, 16-year old rig?
It is a damn cool truck though.

Nope 2:1 is not the exchange rate, it's 1.466:1, making that cruiser about $15,700.

I drove one too. Not any worse than an FJ60, IMHO. No 75 series was ever sold by the dealers in Japan, was it US-military owned? Funny how all the 75 series on the road in Japan are imported back into the country.

Used to drive these for work every day, they're AWFUL on the highway on long trips, noisy, rough-riding sumbitches! That said, they're every bit a hardcore Cruiser as they come, troopies will take abuse that would crumble a 60/80 Series. Ditto for 75 series pickups, which I also drove for work. These are even *tougher* riding, especially un-loaded.

Now a SWB 70 Series, *that's* a Cruiser I regret selling, they're very fun to drive, a lot more comfortable than its 40 Series ancestors, and the power-to-weight ratio is incredible, especially on the newer petrol ones. Last time I was in Venezuela I got to drive a brand-new 4.5 1FZ-FE powered FZJ71 and it had more juice than any other Cruiser I've driven. Comfy, too, with the clear view over the sloping hood and the high sitting position.

I didn't realize they rode so rough. Never even seen one on the street. Seen lots of BJ/FJ60's and 62's and the occasional 70.

troopies are plentiful in australia :D

i'd much prefer a 60 series cruiser though
much more comfy and not as tall as the 70s

That thing would beat you to death, but it is still cool. You could pull up next to a lake and use the front bumper as a diving platform! :eek: :laughing:

that bumper is some homeless ghetto fab shit :eek: every now and then i come across, farm gate style bullbars (it looks like he drove through a farm gate and kept going) then i joke about still being able to see the hinges

but seriously you could park small cars on the approach angle hogging checkerplate

even without lift, that thing is tall, narrow and gutless, yes there are hundreds down here, although thankfully we never saw a 4 cylinder diesel version, man even worse gutless

ive seen more of these rolled and destroyed than i have driving around (ex-rental, ex-company, ex-mining, fleet, and government vehicles, and my parents owned a full spec one.
