My ride is very special because this 100 series land cruiser is super clean and it's built up as an overland rig, and you will never believe how many miles are on it. And i have here the owner, michael michael thanks for bringing out your land cruiser yeah. You'Re welcome so can you show me around kind of and talk about it? You know how it's built, what is it like and um yeah? How much i guess well, so i picked it up a couple years ago. I had a lot quite a few things done to it. It came with the front rear bumper, but i did put on the tent and the um, the awning and filled it filled up the inside and it's. Also um. I put front front and rear lockers on that was done. Um the wheels are uh 33 inch, bf, good, rich, okay and um. You know she rides pretty well and uh, believe it or not. It'S got a quarter million miles on it. What a quarter of a million miles on it? Okay, but but look at just the paint of it. You know just it looks very, very clean and it's a 2006 that's correct, yep, it's, 2006. yeah, so it's about 15 years old, right and it's. The shape of it is incredible, um, so let's kind of go through it right. Do you want to just pop the hood and let's talk about the input? I interrupt this video for this week's tfl beds, bargain we have some really cool trucks and offer the cvs for sale.
But if you're looking for a cool overland camping jeep, there is very very few better than this one. This is a 2015 jeep wrangler jk it's, a rubicon it's built up with a small lift off road wheels and tires it's in great shape with low miles, but it also has a very nice ursa minor tent system on top. These are very, very difficult to find these days, but we have it use the link in the description below to check it out and bid on it and don't forget you can submit your own truck or suv for sale using the link submit a vehicle and have It go to a like minded enthusiast, so yeah, so these uh, these land cruisers, were known for basically this. This is a 4.7 liter, but this is well done right because you have the engine code right here and why is this important? Well, this engine code, the 2u zfe – was there basically one of the most durable v8 engines, they've ever had and that's one of the big reasons i wanted to pick it up, especially in this area. You know this is a heavy vehicle with everything we've got on it, but you know it moves well enough, so i don't have any problems even going up up to steeper hills and everything else and even off road, so yeah. So basically, what is it around? 300 horsepower yeah just under that, but yeah it's under that, but um.
If you've seen tfl truck before you know the one million mile tundra right had basically the same engine uh. That truck was a little bit newer, though than this – and i mean this, engine bay is immaculate and then well yeah and then you've got the little arb uh dual compressor. There yeah so check this out on this side. Uh air b. Is the theme here yeah? This is the airbag toyota theme right, so erb, uh air compressor here you've got your nozzle just for a hose and yeah. So if i need to fill up my tires after i've aired down, i can i've got my hose in the back and i can just fill up my uh tires. So you got you got this a couple years ago: yeah. It was from a dealer down in florida and um. Some of the air b stuff had already been built up, but um he was a dealer, so i had him put on some of the extra things put in the drawers and stuff and uh in a in the refrigerator in the back. Okay, so let's start here. So this air b giant bumper yeah, probably weighs a lot um. I think the whole truck itself weighs about 9 000 pounds wow that's. Quite heavy and it's got a 9 000 pound smittybilt uh winch on it right here. Okay, yep she's in there and i'll – probably change it out later, but it takes a lot of work and you've got to take the bumper off and stuff yeah.
It seems good good enough and giant high intensity yep by arb, too yep and very cool and the headlights look new. They are new, so you know got rid of those scratched up, yellow ones to put in some news headlights and there they've got led beams in them too. So um it's, pretty bright even at night. All right well let's, take a look at the suspension right. So let's so it's old man, emo, correct yeah and the dealer was a custom. Only man emu set up. They they pretty much from here. They had to level the truck as well, and then they put some extra heavy duty springs in the back, but the suspension was done a couple years ago, so it's a modest lift, but this is kind of what you want reasonable. You don't want it too high up. I mean because there's a lot of weight right this vehicle, you don't, want it too top heavy, no it's got a nice balance to it, and you know i feel comfortable riding down the highway. I'Ve upgraded the brakes as well. Okay, so – and i like how the bumper is tied into basically this kind of a rock slider yeah, it doesn't it it's, not a full rock slider, but it you know it's more of a convenience too, to get it to the upper part of the truck yeah. A little bit of a step and and to get to the uh tent, so you've got these.
You said bfgs yep and they're a little bit wider, yeah there's a little bit of a spacer in there and they're a little bit wider yeah. But you have this. Obviously this is very important that helps because uh rocks seem to be a big issue with the tires yeah, because you're throwing rocks and yeah then you'll be kind of scratching everything up here. Well, i wasn't so scratching too i broke one of my mirrors with a rock really yeah. I just threw up and hit the mirror and cracked it okay. So you got to protect that. Yes, then you have the snorkel yeah safari right there. Okay look up here. What you got on this rack, so yeah we've got the arb. Oh, what are they they're? The tread pro recovery treads up front, and then we get the air b10 that opens to the other side, okay, full awning and close, and then this is a full awning that has a a full tent with floor, that that sets it up. So, okay and that's all in the back right, yeah this well, this one comes out to the side and that's just for the for the awning and the tent, and everything is in the back. That goes for the awning, so right, right right! So now here's the rear bumper – and this is very important because you want to protect these corners right, oh yeah, when you're off road and you're kind of coming up, climbing a hill or something right, you're, gon na start hitting right here.
So those are protected. We got quite a few. A couple attachments point points too, on the on the rear, bumper too, which is nice cool. I love this look by the way i mean it's yeah. No no, but the look is and getting that tire out of there and somewhere easy where you can grab it's nice to have too yeah no longer underneath right, um, you have one tank or two just one tank i'm, not sure what i'm gon na do with That big recess i've got underneath yet, but okay, you know hopefully we'll do something with it all right. So can you show us kind of the inside and the storage system yeah, so these are on a little bit hydraulics. They open up pretty nicely and then inside of here we've got basically uh. You know the arb drawers an arb refrigerator air recovery. I use this. You know for my electrical power when we're not running. I have solar panels too, but the doors are kind of nice because you can stow away a lot of the stuff that's inside too vertical you've got your gear, the hood yeah. Obviously, some straps – and this is your that's – the uh that's, the air b jack – and it comes with a little stand too, but it's it's hydraulic, which is kind of so you don't, have to crank crank it too much. No, no, no. It actually pumps up pretty easily so here's.
When you do that, and then you can actually yeah and then you can adjust it as well to get it up higher. So they do it quickly. Yeah that's it that's a cool little system, yeah that's, actually pretty neat yeah and then i've got another one over here. This is actually a little stand for the jack and then there's, one of the annexes there's another one of the annexes over there. Okay in the in the back here and this slides too right, yeah and the in these individual drawers slide too uh huh. So you can pull oh that my goals are attached, but anyhow yeah. They they slide in there too, but yeah they'll get that come on. So you're a cooler, yeah they're cooler and they and they lock too so it's in place. Okay and that's gon na give it a big push: yeah yeah, so that's, a good storage solution and you kind of have your kind of divider there as well in the in the middle yeah. I wanted. I wanted that uh just to keep and you know for safety really in case you know, gear is not doesn't fly around yeah i mean that's. Probably one of the worst parts of an accident is loose gear, yeah well, especially off road when you're going up or down and doing all this stuff. Okay, so oh you got ta you're, just gon na give it a push yep, oh god. That just goes right in the same with the drawers gotcha that's very nice and clean um let's look at the uh some of the control panels.
You said you know lockers and all this yeah yeah they had lockers put in haven't changed the gears they're they're original. So how does it accelerate? I mean? Is it kind of reasonable it is? It is, i mean, you know: hey it's, a big heavy truck yeah right inside there, there's there's there's, the air b switches for the compressor and the lock is front and rear, and then you, you know, came with a center lock. Maybe you can start it up, because i want to see the mileage it's hard for me to believe sure, because the paint quality and the interior quality is just really awesome. Oh there, it is 225 582. There you go so you can go at least that distance still oh yeah sure runs strong doesn't leak it's does it have any additional like skid plates and stuff like that, um there's, a there's, a front skid plate that's part of the bumper system, but i haven't Put in any additional skid plates, yet um and the best one is very quiet yeah. Well, they start up really well and yeah there's, a backseat area. I mean yeah, actually that's that's just for the dog, but the seat underneath is actually almost in really nice shape. Yeah yeah and you've got the dvd player, so these were luxury vehicles, always right. Oh yeah they've always been okay. So i got to ask you so when you found was it difficult to find? First of all, when you were looking for one around here, yes diff it was but there there are some places.
You can look around the country. So you know when i sometimes when i look for a car like this, i will do some search wrestling like nationally and i'm, not i'm, not afraid to you know sight unseen because um, you know the price was a little bit more money, but the value of The truck is worth bringing it in, so so how much when, when you purchased it, what was it well, it was roughly you know in the in the low 30s or so, but then i've done quite a bit of work to it afterwards. So you know she's um, you know probably looking in the the mid to upper 30s yeah. Well, these are getting even more valuable. Now, oh, i know i've seen it lately, so what toyota's doing is actually after 2021 they're discontinuing the land cruiser in the united states. So these might actually actually come up in price no, and that seems to be the trend. What i've seen so far, because i've looked at these and um yeah they're hard to find and and clean too all right, michael! So is it fair to say? Do you love this rig? I love it. I love it it's a blast to drive and you know even going down the highway it's, not it's, uh it's comfortable, and you know we enjoy being in it very, very cool.
