Beautiful HJ61 from Japan

-150K mi (240,xxx km) on the clock
-most desirable turbo-diesel 12HT engine
-automatic
-with manual locking diffs
-well done black repaint
-4" lift (lift was installed in japan so not sure of the make)
-35" BFGs with 60% tread left
-new Blaupunkt head unit with GPS
-interior is 8 out of 10 - dash has a well executed re-cover job, seats and carpet are in great shape, and they have the "TURBO" upholstery which I love

Since I've had it:
-entire fuel system run through - gas tank dropped and cleaned, flushed fuel lines, injectors and injector pump cleaned
-new brake pads and rear drums / shoes
-turbo run through and adjusted
-all fluids changed
-underbody sprayed with rubber coat

Issues:
-passenger side window switch needs replacement (just that switch - the master on the drivers side still moves the window up and down
-grey smoke on cold start when its below freezing
-diff lock cables need replacing, existing ones are frozen
-Brooklyn is Brooklyn and one day a random 2" scratch appeared on the RR quarterpanel
-power antenna doesn't retract (doesn't bother me)
-moon roof motor gear is stripped (its closed fully and doesn't leak)
-washer fluid bottle is cracked and needs replacing.

If you don't already know these vehicles:
This is the high-roof version of the Land Cruiser that was only available in Japan, Australia, and a handful of other countries but not in the US. They were all manufactured with RIGHT HAND DRIVE. I admit I was nervous to buy a RHD vehicle, but within an hour of driving I got used to it and now its as natural as breathing.

I am selling because I am going on a 3 month trip and I want to drive a vehicle whose parts are more readily available in case something goes wrong when I'm in the middle of nowhere.

Thanks for looking!
