am in Fiji and I’m considering buying a 100 series land cruiser which is a 1998 model with around 400,000 km (250,000 miles ) and is selling for $25,000 fjd ($12,000 USD) the vehicle does look in great condition and is modified and loaded with accessories such snorkel, roof rails ,3 inch lift kit ,heavy shocks and some more , based on this information and the fact that the vehicle has had 7 different owners already , would it be a great idea to buy this vehicle for the price it is selling for ? And is there any particular issues that any of you have encountered with this particular model which the same engine that I should be aware of and look out for when inspecting the vehicle ? Appreciate any help regarding this which will help me make a decision on whether or not I should buy this also find attached below pics of the vehicle along with the mods added

No idea if that's a good price in Fiji....
Condition is more important than age with a Landcruiser ...
3 inch is a big lift on an IFS unless it's been properly done with a diff drop and possibly suspension arms ...
7 owners over that time isn't a bad thing if you work out the average at just over every 3 years to an owner...
You need to work out if the mods were properly done and if they were for looks or if the vehicle has been used hard
