The Toyota Land Cruiser Custom Guide is in stores now.
We also look at the evolution of the BJ/FJ, reminisce 30 years of the 70 Series, and pay homage to the FJ Cruiser.
Plus, we give an in-depth explanation of Toyota’s 1VD-FTV V8, we tell you why a clutch upgrade is necessary when you add power or increase tyre size, and we head Stateside to the Land Cruiser Heritage Museum.
