Hey All,

Happy to be here!

We're Ben & Sofia and we have a 1988 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ62 US spec.


We're currently building up our old rusty FJ62 in Miami Beach. So far the mods we've done are; suspension, long range fuel tank and dual battery system but she's currently changing every week.


We're hoping to get her finished to do the Tans American Trail before the end of summer 2020.

Ben: 'I'm an Aussie and my 2nd and third cars when I was 19-23 were 40 series LandCruisers (BJ40 & FJ40) and I've done some crazy things around Australia in those.

We also upgraded a 2005 Ford Escape last year with a rooftop tent OME suspension and the works and drove it from NYC to the Grand Canyon and many places in between last year.


I'll start a build thread when I get a few spare minutes and we'll hopefully take you guys along for the ride.

So this is probably the most real video I've made. I didn't cut out any of my mistakes and there were many.
For anyone looking to add Barn Doors/Ambulance Doors to their US spec FJ62, it is for sure doable without a ton of bodywork experience but it's not a quick job at all.

Happy New Year everyone!! Hoping everyone got to hit the road in their prospective LandCruisers.

We had a bit of time off working on the car over the holidays but we're now back in full swing.

I've seen a lot of discussions about using Monstaliner and other Bedliners on here. Here is our 1st thoughts on the product. Overall good, just hard for people that have never used this sort of product:
