About Us

Land Cruiser Heaven was founded in 2015, when Frank embarked on a memorable quest to find leather seat cover’s for his 80 series Land Cruiser. Like any great startup company, you find a need and you find a solution. This story is not any different. In the Land Cruiser online community there was void in a reputable leather seat cover vendor.

Through his network of friends and family, Frank found a Colombian leather seat supplier and started offering the leather seat covers to Land Cruiser online community. Before he knew, he had sold over $20k in covers within a months time.

Frank was amazed on the response he received from the community, but he worried on whether the quality of the covers and their fitment would meet expectation. Any mistake would be catastrophic. On a side note, Frank had always day dreamed about shipping his Land Cruiser to Colombia and exploring his beautiful native country.

Having been recently laid off, meant that he had the free time to do so; but it also meant, Frank would have to spend money and take a big risk. In order to put his worries to rest, he would have to ship his truck to the Colombian leather seat factory, so they could get the correct seat templates and he can see first hand the quality and fitment.

Well, Frank took the risk and shipped his truck to Cartagena, Colombia, where he embarked on a 1500km road trip to Bogota. While on this crazy, amazing trip, which he documented with the Land Cruiser community he received many requests for hard to source parts in the US, and well in a matter of no time he had an extensive laundry list of parts he needed to source, and this is how Land Cruiser Heaven was born.
