Overview

I’m a co owner of 12th State Offroad in North Carolina. I’ve had a love affair with this landcruiser that has caused me to not be able to leave it alone for many years. Obviously I’ve gone overboard with this thing but what i love about this platform is how capable it is right from the get go. These old cruisers are starting to get more and more rare so if you find one in decent shape and decent price, don’t hesitate to snag one, learn how to spin a wrench and enjoy the ride.
