4x4TV Test – 2004 Toyota Land Cruiser SEE ALL OUR OVER 150 OTHER VIDEOS @ http://www.4x4TV.TV CONTACT ME at DougMeyer@4x4TV.TV.
How about a 2nd gen Montero with the rear diff vs the Land Cruiser (98-99
UZJ100 (pre ATAC)?
What’s more capable this or a 2002 montero ?
Handles amazingly on snow and ice as well. This winter has been brutal in
Wisconsin. I’m hoping to get another 10 years out of this puppy! 😉
its a car made for off road performance not to get you off
FJZ80 was the last great Land Cruiser Front, Center, and Rear Lockers.
Don’t make me cry…… 😉
I find that hard to believe. Sure you guys were using it properly? That had
the beginning of Gen 3 atrac, which was pretty aggressive. Ive crawled my
way across crown kings back way, and the off trails of box canyon and three
peaks in Arizona in a stock 4th gen 4runner and 100 series, with the mini
van high way tires they come stock with, and not had any issues, while
other trucks with opens and no traction control had a much harder time. I
though it would have left a nice impression with u.
And live front axle!!! The 105 series is actually based on the 80 series. I
hate seeing SUV with IFS.
@mateodeleon2000 You are all too right. Kinda sad that people want a
serious off-roader but really don’t want to put up with all the things
associated with real 4-wheelers. So in response the manufacturers dumb down
the SUV until we have Hybrid Highlanders 😉
not one mention of atrac? jeezz
Now that you’ve added that and we know the 93-97 models aren’t
eligible….might as well add 2WD-4WD switchable drivetrain…. Might as
well just go buy a good FJ60 😉
I have 3 Land Cruisers 80 100 and 200 and all 3 are different and the same:
at the same time 80-Slow TANK; 100-Faster TANK; 200-Fast TANK.
We found it insignificant at best.
drab, boaring, dull, generic, plane, ordanary. all these words match the
Toyota brand. the land cruiser is no exception, the FJ 40 was the last
I have a 2005 land cruiser and it’s awesome!
get an early model 100 series, the 105 not the shitty ones with IFS, either
the 4.5 or the 4.2, 3 inch lift, some muddys, remove the plastic bumpers,
replace them with a bull bar and a steel rear bumper, and replace the side
steps, with some sliders, and you’re set
The Land Cruiser needs two things: 1) chop down on all the luxury crap, 2)
straight six engine.
4) The new 70 series in Europe !! 5) Non-electronic fuel injection !!
It’s a very sad truth. I own a 1990 4Runner and only managed to take it off
the road on a road trip to Utah. I had to beg my mom.
crown king is badass
Or a Land Cruiser 70 with a 4.5L diesel V8 and a 5-speed manual. Too bad I
live in the U.S.
@4x4TVTV, the fj 55 was interestingly weird looking and had some soul, but
nothing like the fj40, the jeep wrangler is a good example of keeping a
classic fun utility alive. Open doors, soft top, and ruged looks keep it
fun. I feel the land crusier is just a name now, yeah its reliable and well
built and if thats all you care about then great, get a cruiser but I need
a car with a soul, one that will put a smile on my face when i drive it.
The land crusier is just way to bland for me.
That Land Cruiser exists guys (105 series) just not for you
@123abcpa WHat about the 55? The 60? The 80? I’ll stop there……
Toyota trucks and truck-based SUVs don’t match that description. Maybe the
cars, crossovers, and minivans do, not the trucks.
well, from what i have read, Toyota’s statistics show that in these modern
times, 90% of Land Cruiser owners do no use their cars off road. Don’t burn
me here, i got this from an article. Now if this is the case then Toyota
has no choice. the opinion or the needs of the remaining 10% will not feed
Toyota. Can’t make anyone happy. and the world is sometimes a paradox.
Oh, I forgot the manual transmission.
A return to the pre 1998 models 😉
The Land Cruiser certainly did! While we were indeed impressed with its
4-wheel drive capabilities, those highway tires and the lacks of any ‘true’
locker had us bemoaning the move away from off road explorer to fancy
grocery getter. Perhaps in retrospect it was better than we thought –
especially seeing where SUVs are now 😉
There is no exception; every Landcruiser is awesome. There is a reason why
many governmental and non-governmental agencies use them around the world.
That is because of their true utilitarian capabilities as well as all
around versatility. I have seen Landcruiser do off-road trails with less
effort than Defender, Patrol, Bronco, Expedition, Jeep, name it. . .
@4x4TVTV yeah 60 was the last really good one they get to fat after that
I love mine!!!!
