Everyone knows about the Toyota Land Cruiser, but not many people are familiar with its bigger, more hardcore sibling, the Mega Cruiser. Sold in Japan through the late Nineties, it's a civilian version of a military SUV built by Toyota for the Japanese government. Very few were sold, which isn't surprising considering its Hummer-like design and proportions.
As such, Mega Cruisers have become extremely collectable pieces of machinery, making them incredibly tough to find for sale. If you're on the hunt, today's your lucky day. Because there's a Mega Cruiser for sale right now on Cars & Bids, and it's already here in the United States.
According to the listing's description, this Mega Cruiser was imported from Kazakhstan, of all places, under our 25-year law. It has around 56,600 miles on the clock, and sports a host of mods, including a roof rack, heated seats, wood interior trim, LED interior lighting, and a fuel-system pre-heating kit for the diesel engine. Even more impressive is the previous owner's decision to convert the truck to left-hand-drive, making it easier to drive on U.S. roads.
If you thought Land Cruisers were tough, wait until you hear about the Mega Cruiser's standard kit. There are portal axles, locking differentials on both ends, a four-wheel steering system, and an interior big enough to dwarf your average New York City apartment. It's one of the most capable vehicles Toyota has ever sold to the public.
This one is an especially good buy because not only has it already been imported, but it's already been titled in the U.S. as well, meaning you won't have to deal with any importation stuff at the DMV. Of course, be prepared to pay—Mega Cruisers of this quality regularly sell for six figures, and we don't expect this one to be any different.
