When we started JDM Land Cruisers, Japanese Domestic Market Land Cruisers were our business. Over the years, that model has changed. A few years ago we began sourcing our trucks from Spain and the Canary Islands. We did this in response to the demand for left had drive and rust free Land Cruisers. After some research and exploration, the Mediterranean became the obvious choice as a source for rust free LHD trucks. In our search for vehicles, we source the cleanest most original trucks possible. This is not always easy as Land Cruisers are viewed and used as "work trucks" in most parts of the world. From this "fleet" of used Cruisers, we only purchase and import the best of what is available. We have a team of LC enthusiast and mechanics in Spain that assist in inspection, selection and repair of the trucks. We go through and repair any issues that we find and get the trucks running and driving correctly. At times, there may be issues that we do not fix but we let you know what's not working. Many of the people who are interested in our trucks are DIYers who can replace a broken mirror, replace some worn interior panels, or replace a leaking transfer case oil seal.
What we don't do. We don't buy and sell junk. Any truck we import, we would own and drive ourselves. We are not a Land Cruiser restoration business that sells "better than new" Land Cruisers. Not that there's anything wrong with that! But that's just not our business.
What you can count on when dealing with JDM Land Cruisers. Honesty and integrity. We accurately and honestly represent all of our trucks. Some are "perfect", or pretty close, some are not. We are upfront about what is working and not working with the truck. If there's a problem and we have not corrected it, we will tell you about it. We find that when people's expectations are in line with what they are buying they are happy. If the Land Cruiser exceeds their expectations, even better. People get upset when their expectations are at a higher level than the truck's condition. For us, it's pretty simple. Be upfront and honest, let people know what they are getting, don't play games. Do we miss stuff? Sure. People buy trucks, get them home, drive them around and stuff breaks or we missed something. We've never missed anything big, like not realizing the engine was eating a quart of oil a week. It's little stuff, ashtray is really nasty, rear wiper doesn't work, latch on glovebox door is funky. We do our best to provide a replacement part or help you sort the problem.
