Hey, it even comes with a built-in iPad.
You’re familiar with the likes of Icon 4x4 and its incredible Toyota Land Cruiser, Ford Bronco and Derelict restomods. Each of those costs a small fortune, as does a fully restored FJ Land Cruiser from the folks at The FJ Company. Making its debut at SEMA, what you’re looking at is called the Signature Edition. Based on a 1981 Toyota FJ43, the truck has undergone a complete frame-off restoration. But don’t think this is just some show SUV. No, it’s meant for actually doing what it was designed to do from the get-go: hard work.
It’s been newly equipped with a Warn 8274 winch mounted on a 40-series bumper and Baja Designs LED fog lights. There’s also an aluminum fuel cap cover and side mirrors painted in Gunmetal Gray. Power comes courtesy of a brand new Toyota-liter V6 with 240 hp. If this engine sounds familiar to Toyota truck fans, that's because it is.
It’s the very same V6 found under the hood of today’s 4Runner, and used to power both the Tacoma and FJ Cruiser. A six-speed manual transmission is standard. Toyota 4Runner four-wheel disc brakes, a performance-tuned suspension system and Old Man Emu leaf springs have also been added. Inside there are Recaro seats, unique window levers, door handles, pedals, shifters and pull knobs. We particularly dig the canvas sunroof and windows. For those who require some modern creature comforts, there is an air conditioning system and an iPad mounted to the center console. Just 24 Signature series are planned for production next year, with prices beginning at $200,000 each.
