It’s hard to believe that it’s going on two years now that I’ve owned my FJ62 Land Cruiser. I bought it on a bit of a whim, in need of a new daily driver. I had eyed cheaper 4x4s such as Monteros and Jeeps, with the 60-series Land Cruiser taking a back seat solely due to cost; it was, after all, the truck I wanted most of the lot. However, one within my budget was hidden in the depths of Craigslist, with no info and a misspelled title.
