This 1999 Land Cruiser is an example of just how long these legendary Toyota SUVs will last with proper maintenance. With 344,000 miles on the odometer, it’s currently the highest-mileage Toyota Land Cruiser listed for sale on Autotrader, although there are several other listings with near or over 300,000 miles as well. Either way, this is a 1999 model from the Land Cruiser’s "100 Series" generation, which was offered from the 1998 through 2007 model years. Only a few options were available, and this example has one of the most sought-after in a locking rear differential, which was an option during just the 1998 and 1999 model years. You can barely make out the switch to the left of the steering column.
The seller states that this one has had the same owner — presumably the seller — for 15 years and that it’s been garaged for most of that time. The timing belt — one of few major maintenance items that need to be addressed to keep a high-mileage Land Cruiser on the road — was replaced a year and a half ago, meaning that you’ve got at least another 60,000 miles or so before you need to worry about it again.
As the owner of a 1999 Land Cruiser myself, to breathe some new life into this one, I’d get rid of the interior wood trim, which is stuck on via adhesive tape; remove the running boards, which are attached by four hex bolts on either side; restore the fog lights; steam clean the interior; adjust the front torsion bars to restore some lift to the front end; and throw on a set of all-terrain tires. Dollar for dollar, that formula will give you the best overland vehicle money can buy. Located in Fort Mill, South Carolina, this high-mileage Toyota Land Cruiser still has a ton of life left in it, and it can be yours for $6,500. Find a Toyota Land Cruiser for sale
