Yeah I'd love an old Land Cruiser (FJ40) in a diesel version. Would be nice if newer one came to north america in diesel formats...

Here's the applications that share the 1GR-FE stolen from wiki... (BTW 1GR-FE means the 1st generation of the GR engine series with an F narrow valve angle head and Electronic fuel injection)

Applications (with VVT-i) in model years:

2003-2009 Toyota 4Runner / Hilux Surf (GRN210/215)
2007-2011 Toyota Land Cruiser (GRJ200)
2003-2009 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado (GRJ120/121/125)
2005–present Toyota Tacoma (GRN225/245/250/265/270)
2005 Toyota Hilux (GGN10/20)
2005-2006 Toyota Tundra (GSK30)
2007-2009 Toyota Tundra (GSK50/51)
2005–present Toyota Fortuner (GGN50/60)
2007-2009 Toyota FJ Cruiser (GSJ10/15)

Applications (with Dual VVT-i) in model years:

2010–present Toyota 4Runner (GRN280)
2010–present Toyota FJ Cruiser
2012–present Toyota Land Cruiser
2009–present Toyota Land Cruiser Prado (GRJ150/155)

I agree with you. 4wd that isn't diesel is just a pretend 4wd. Sure it looks like one but when push comes to shove and I had to take one when no one could help me if I got into trouble then diesel and the less electronics the better.

Love my FJC too and Moab is just amazing though my rear diff started breaking down there. Congrats hikeswithdogs!

Yep same engine and tranny from the Tacoma , the frame and some of the chassis parts comes from the Land Cruiser line.

There are for sure times when we miss the Outback(its taken us through some gnarly shit) but I've always wanted a Jeep and there are places I wanted to go last year in the Wasatch that I just didn't feel like braving with the Suby.

That and when we move across country from Minnesota to Utah(in the winters) we just didn't have enough space in the outback and hauling a trailer wasn't really an option. The FJ gives us WAY more vertical storage and we can attach a floating trailer on the hitch too which gives us allot of additional storage for our fall\spring migrations.

NOW if they had a turbo diesel motor as an option...........
You and the rest of the hard core tacoma enthusiasts lol. A smaller turbo diesel would be a lot of fun and have torque for days. And would probably get at least 20 mpg.

Unless you wanted the jeep for gnarly off roading then you make the right choice with the FJ, jeep like in style and it has the locker. But the ifs makes it much better and smoother for highway driving and it going to just be way way more comfortable to every day daily driving.

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

I absolutely love mine, this is summer setup. Winter gets Blizzaks on stock rims with a Yak Rack and Skybox 16.

I just replaced the turbo, so I took a couple afterwards. Really need some good light to do it justice.

What turbo did you put in the old one's place? And either way, light or no, it's still a great looking car. Really makes me miss my Subie...

Just a rebuild on my VF40, not ready for modding just yet, need the reliability, plus my engine has a few miles on it so I want it to last as long as poss. When this one blows I will probably add some tasteful stuff.

I had a 96 2.2 legacy a few years ago, had about 250000 miles on it, what a car that was. The dealership said it wasn't even broken in! I wish my 2.5 engine was as bulletproof.
