After World War 2, Toyota began developing an off road vehicle and it eventually earned the name Land Cruiser. The Land Cruiser has a strong history as a capable 4x4 and today as a luxury SUV. This week on Dirt Every Day, Fred Williams introduces us to "Peter the Beater" his new beat up, high mileage '93 Land Cruiser that he'll be fixing up for this year's Cheap Truck Challenge.

Dirt Every Day appears every other Thursday on the Motor Trend channel. www.youtube.com/motortrend

      If you are heading to a jungle, take range rover, if you want to head to a jungle and come back, you take Land Cruiser!

      I always liked that year Land Cruiser... ended up with a 98' 4runner Limited, just clocked 165K and the 3.4V6 runs perfect,
      except for a gel-coat paint problem on the hood and a little on the roof, simply a great truck, interior components and
      materials have also held up well... I don't off-road much but love the 4WD in the snow, very capable... Thx, Moses...

      At 5:00, when your truck stomped up that rock ledge behind Tor (sp.), I jumped up & cheered like I had money on it! Toyotas - bulletproof, plain & simple.

      Here in the UK a tree surgeon guy has made his with a chipper on the back and gone 6x6. It's a beast and pulls a fabulous trailer. I love it when people modify their rides.

      Regardles the model generation, the Land Cruiser is an extremly capable and reliable vehicle. BUT... and yes, there is a very big “BUT”... for on road use, an day to day use, there are far beter options on the market. Unfortunately Toyota never managed to make the LC suitable for bough worlds...
      In the real world, the LR Discovery is a far superior vehicle.
