My Dad bought this Land Cruiser 10+ years ago and gave it to me 2 years ago when he got a new truck. It's stock besides some Bilstein shocks, AirLift bags and a Borla muffler. It's been Danielle's secondary vehicle and we've only put ~5k on it in the last 2 years. We have decided to start looking at homes and given how little we drive this, it's time for it to go. It's a good vehicle, mechanically sound, but not pretty and not without it's flaws. I've done my best to describe it below, focusing on the flaws. If you are interested or have additional questions, PM or email me.Mechanicals

Car was maintained by a reputable local mechanic while owned by my father. I rebuilt the front axles 5k miles ago. It's got new brake pads all the way around (ceramic up front) and new front rotors. Starts with no problems, has an Optima Red Top battery. I've never had any issues driving it, but it's not new. I've had to replace minor things like a muffler hanger, had to drill and re-thread the holes for the primary O2 sensor because the bolt heads rusted off and it sounds like it has a tiny exhaust leak somewhere though I have yet to find it. The engine bay has a thin coating of dirt/dried mud from being taken off road a couple of times.Exterior

It looks good from 20 feet away, but there are a plethora of minor scratches and a few major ones (bumpers, driver's rear fender flare, rear tailgate). The fender flares are all faded and the driver's side rear one is held on with clips that are visible from the exterior as it fell off at one point. The good news is there is no rust on the body, though the running boards and bumpers have some spots on them. The windshield is pitted and has a circular crack the size of a fist (it isn't spreading) where a ball hit it. The tires are practically new Bridgestones with 9-10/32nds of tread still on them.Interior

It's all there and the heat and AC work great. The rear heat has been disconnected. The front seats and steering wheel leather are cracked. The front seats have been covered in quality Wet Okole seat covers, but they are getting old and have some fading and water spots. There are no stains or tears in the rest of the seats. Water leaks into the passenger side footwell from somewhere when it rains (it's not coolant)...could be coming from the cowl? All the electric stuff works, but the driver's side seat doesn't move back and forth like new. The trip odometer doesn't work (the tenths spin, but don't trigger the next digit to roll over). The main odometer does work, so the reported mileage is accurate.
Overall, it's a good vehicle. I just hate driving it (damn SUVs), don't have the time (or will) to fix the things that are already wrong, and dread what will break next and take time away from my wagon, Civic and the next project I'd like to start.
I'll entertain any and all offers from VMSC members and friends, the $4500obo price is what I'll be listing it on Craigslist for so I wanted to keep the listing here consistent. Will trade for a lower mileage 2.0L (F20C) S2000 drivetrain, preferably still in the shell of a wrecked car (will throw in cash on my end to balance out depending on shape and complete-ness).
