FJ History:
Appropriately, the FJ Land Cruiser formed the backbone of the Toyota brand and became the emissary of Japanese engineering and much of the world's first experience with Toyota. The FJ was decidedly a military vehicle at first--like the Jeep and Land Rover--but quickly spread worldwide as a fantastic method of transporting people or cargo in places that didn't have well-maintained roads (or any at all!) for uses as varied as farming to ambulances to deserts to rock climbing. After making it up to the 6th station of Mt. Fuji on a showcase run in 1951, the FJ captured the attention of not only groups like the Japanese Forest Service but also makers of Jeep. Successive FJ models morphed from the brusque military style to a more comfortable and functional ride with improvements like more room in the interior as well as softer springs.

Toyota's FJ series is positively famous for not breaking down--which is why you can still find authentic antique FJs all over the world in working condition (at the very least, you can find suitable samples for restoration). Since it's used for so many purposes, it seems almost fitting that there are nearly countless configurations in the FJ Series from wheelbase height to the type of covering for the roof and more. The Japanese approach to engineering critically rests on the relentless pursuit of perfection. It's not good enough to have the mentality of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"; they would prefer that it never break at all. Why replace something when you can build it right the first time? Given that, it's no surprise that the quality and durability of the FJ's transmission and suspension is legendary. The leaf spring suspension is particularly worth mentioning: it's absolutely suited for a heavy vehicle like the FJ, spreading the weight around more evenly, plus it actually alleviates the need for additional weight from extra parts that you would need with coil suspension. The electrical system tends to survive just about anything you throw at it. It's truly unmatched in terms of reliability and superiority for cars of this era--especially when you consider the beating many FJs have endured over their lifetimes in conditions most vehicles can barely handle for a day of driving.
