Thread: Good Times' 2000 Land Cruiser Build

  1. #1

    Good Times' 2000 Land Cruiser Build

    Just about a year ago to the date I bought an used 2000 Toyota Land Cruiser. Not the cleanest one I've seen but one that has been very well maintained (even comes with a few battle scars on the driver panel) but the interior was probably one of the best so I couldn't resist. Some of ya may have seen it at the last Pismo event but those of ya that didn't see it, I'll post up some photos for ya tomorrow when the sun is out.

    I told myself I would keep this stock since I still have the 4runner but obviously I lost that battle.. Don't ask why I'm such an idiot... (boys will be boys)

    Here's what I'm working on. Pix to come.

    Power me up!
    * IBS Dual Battery System + IBS Relay Boost Module
    * Slee Offroad 2nd Battery Tray
    * Diehard Platinum Group 34M Battery
    * Blue Sea Systems SafetyHub 100 Fuse Block
    * Cooper Bussmann Resettable Circuit Breaker

    Family friendly armor...
    * Slee Offroad SlideSteps

    Family friendly geek toys
    * ARB Fridge Frezer 63qt (this thing is a monster!) (with the tie down and transit bag)
    * Adding a drawer system that I'll build based on some clever designs I found online
    * trying to find a creative way to mount my ipad so I can use it for navigation of the city.

    I would love to mod it like a madman but I really need to keep this one tame since I already have the 4runner for the crazy stuff.

    Sounds like fun. Can't wait to see pictures and what you have up your sleeve.

    4runner is on hold due to time constraints on working on the project and also cost of getting all of the parts together. As much as I want it done personally speaking, I just can't find the time to work on it to get it done. So I'll just let it sit for a bit until I have some free time to work on it. At least the Land Cruiser project won't be too time consuming since it's all mostly bolt on stuff and doesn't require me to fabricate my own stuff (though I know that's part of the fun). Guess I'm getting either too old or lazy to work on it. ha

    it's missing a rear axle and a the whole exhaust system along with the bottom half of the headers for both sides. much of the interior has been stripped out too now so it' a bit "empty" so to speak.

    got a bit ahead of myself on removing stuff and now it's just a pile of ****. Stuff I want to do is gonna be a bit more expensive than I originally anticipated so I had to put it on hold. Plus work has been eating away much of my free time so I haven't been able to just work on it.

    I started working on it in the office warehouse but the office needed the space back for merchandise inventory so I had to relocate it back into storage. Kinda hard to work when it's stored so until I have some room to work on it I just put it away for now. Thinking of reviving the project in the winter when it's a bit cooler to work on.

    Awesome! I love the 100 series Land Cruisers and wouldn't mind building one up myself.

    Looking forward to seeing this build!

    Side profile with a bit of carnage on the driver side panel. Not a biggie otherwise the rest of the panel are in great shape!


    As clean as it gets for a 2000 LC (well the cheapest that I can find in this great of shape!)


    Roar! the power of that v8 is just too hard to give up. Only if it came with the 5 speed auto vs the 4 speed auto. Definitely a big difference in comparison to my 2003 4runner but at least now I have interchangeable parts!


    Few dings on the rear bumper but it's not a biggie.



    Had to add the Pismo Jamboree stickers... hehe


    Front seats / interior was pretty sexy!


    Can you believe this is a 2000 LC? The previous owner did a great job maintaining this in such a great condition.


    O my, looks like a new toy Just need to start working on the drawer system. If you look closely you'll see the drawer slides are behind it and the moving blanket has the wood waiting to be cut and finished.

    So far the fridge is working but I'm a bit fearful of keeping it connected with only one battery. It has a shut off system built in and it has shut off a few times already so I gotta hurry up and get that second battery installed. Waiting for the IBS system to arrive.

    And the waiting begins...

    Nice! I like how the interior is trimmed. I am also a fan of gray leather as opposed to black or tan.

    I saw a 100-series the other day that had a simple spacer lift and larger tires and it looked excellent.

    Ken,

    Don't get me started... I want to do so much but the parking garage where I live is very low so I can't add a lift and/or taller tires. If I do it'll hit... talk about *!(@*#&!@&^!@(&# haha guess that's one way to keep me from going bonkers on this truck too!

    I too like the gray leather as opposed to black or tan. I specifically hunted the white/gray combo for a few years (quietly) so I was very happy when this one came across in such great condition (especially the interior).
