    If the Willy's Jeep didn't exist neither would Landcruisers. Great cars but very expensive, and the fact Toyota no longer makes them in a square body design kinda killed there market. People like the utilitarian design of the older ones, and it was a bestseller, yet they stopped cause...

    Landcruisers are built for constant abuse on harsh terrain. They are very very strong. Theres a reason they are the only vehicle trusted to transverse the harshest terrain on the planet. Nothing else holds up.

    My first Land Cruiser was a 1976 FJ40 with the 2F engine. My last was a 1999 FJ80 with the mighty 1FZ engine. The best car I've ever owned. In the meantime, I had a 1982 FJ47, a 1987 FJ60 (3F engine) and a 2002 FJ65 So many aventures with them. No other Off Road compares to Land Cruiser...

    I swear there was a version of the Land Cruiser that had a Chevy 350 and was in the First Power Rangers Movie 1995!!!! I cannot find it for the life of me, it was known as The Chevota.

    Nice video!
    But you forgot to mention a bunch of Land Cruiser models like 90, 120, 150 (despite you have 150 on 10:23) which became a new branch later called Land Cruiser Prado.
    This whole branch happened because of seperation luxury models like 80, 100, 200 and cheaper smaller 90, 120, 150. But because being smaller and lighter modern 150 series Land Cruiser Prado can do offroad sometimes even butter then sometimes too big and heavy 200 series and still costs a 20 grands less.
    This cars are extremely popular on the east, you might not know about it because you have Toyota Surf (4Ranner) in US, which quite similar.
    But if you want the difference Prado would have better drivetrain (Full-time 4wd with lockers vs Part-time in 4Runner) but 4runner would have better engine (Prado 2.7 petrol is quite week). This makes them extremely popular in places where you want Full time 4wd and in my country it costs like Kia Sorento :)
