The Toyota Land Cruiser (J40) is a series of Land Cruisers made by Toyota from 1960 until 2001. Traditional body on frame SUV most 40 series Land Cruisers were built as 2-door models with slightly larger dimensions than the similar Jeep CJ.
The model was available in short J40/41 and 42, in medium J43/44 and 46, and in long J45/47 wheelbase versions with petrol and diesel engines.
The powertrain, the J40 series was produced with both diesel and petrol engines. The F-series was a 6-cylinder petrol motor, B-series a 4-cylinder diesel, and H-series a 6-cylinder diesel. The diesel trucks were never sold to the general public in the United States, though some found their way in as mine trucks. Some engines are similar within their series, for example, the F and 2F engines share many of the same parts. However the H and 2H designations have almost nothing in common.
The features, a pair of jump seats folded behind the front seats, maximizing cargo space, compared to the full width folding rear seat of the Jeep CJ series. Original factory optional winches were PTO driven. Later models were electric powered.
Toyota still offers many replacement parts for the J40 available through Toyota parts departments worldwide.
