RESURRECTION

Let Land Cruiser Heaven revive your Land Cruiser with a new outlook on life offering a complete body on Resurrection

Our Resurrection
Process

  • Vehicle is picked up or delivered to our location.
  • A complete 100 point inspection is performed to get an in-depth idea of current vehicle condition.
  • The Resurrection process is then divided into 5 phases:

1

Engine Mechanical

Engine is base lined completely utilizing all Original OEM Toyota Parts. This includes all new seals, gaskets, o-rings, belts, vacuum hoses, filters, tensioners, idler pulley, ignition cables, spark plugs, distributor cap and rotor. The and induction and injection systems are serviced thoroughly. Engine oil will be replaced with Synthetic oil.

The cooling system also gets base lined with new heater rubber hoses, heater valve, new fan clutch, thermostat, and water pump, along with a complete coolant flush. Coolant system is then filled with Toyota Red Antifreeze/Coolant.

The power steering system will get a new power steering pump, and new low pressure hoses. A full power steering system oil flush is also performed.

The inspection report will dictate current state of the engine and what needs to be tackled. Based on the compression tests will dictate if engine will require more work.

2

Drive train / Suspension / Brakes / Steering

Drive train

Complete front knuckle rebuilt with new seals, gaskets, bearings and grease. Rear hub gets rebuilt with new seals, gaskets, and bearings. Axles/transfer case/automatic transmission are drained of old oil, flushed and new synthetic oil is used.

Brakes

Brake system is serviced with new rotors, pads, calipers all around. Rear drums are rebuilt with new hardware and shoes as well as parking brake adjusted. A complete brake flush and bleeding is then performed and new synthetic brake fluid is added.

Suspension

Old suspension is removed and a complete new Dobinson suspension is installed.
Based on the customers needs a stock height or an upgraded lift suspension is used.
All control arm bushings are replaced.

Steering

All steering tie rods are replaced and vehicle is aligned

3

Undercarriage Protection

Success is in the preparation. Undercarriage is steam cleaned and pressure washed removing all grease, oil, dirt and grime. It is then cleaned by hand and any exposed surface rust will be wire wheeled. Axles are removed from the frame and cleaned individually.

Undercarriage is then treated with a chemical that converts rust back to a metal. 24 hours later, the undercarriage is once again pressure washed and let air dry for 24-48 hours. Undercarriage and axles are then sprayed with 3 coats of POR15. Paint is then allowed to cured for 48 hours before reassembly of the axles onto the frame.

4

Interior

Interior is then completely disassembled to the bare cab. Carpet will get steam cleaned, all panels are cleaned. Any missing or damaged parts will get sourced or replaced. Sound deadening is then added to the floor, doors and roof. Carpet is then reinstalled. All seats are redone with Land Cruiser Heaven leather along with new front cushions. Steering wheel is leather wrapped.

Audio is upgraded with a Double Din Bluetooth CD radio with new all around 6.5" speakers. A reverse camera is also added.

The interior is refreshed with a complete LED light upgrade.

5

Exterior

Vehicle will then undergo a complete paint refresh. Any worn or damaged weatherstripping/lights/etc will be replaced. All windows, moldings, door handles, lights, bumpers, mirrors are removed. Any dings, dents or rust is repaired. Vehicle is then prepped and painted the same original color. All emblems are replaced.

I took my 1994 Land Cruiser in for a thermostat replacement and steering repair. Frank was very helpful and was very quick to have the repairs done. I would highly recommend! I was drooling at all the options they have for Land Cruiser’s definitely will be back if my wife allows it 🙂

I have a first gen Tacoma and was looking for a shop that would go above and beyond in helping me maintain my truck to get the most out of it. After meeting Frank I knew Land Cruiser Heaven was the shop for me. Frank and his team are extremely knowledgeable and go the extra mile for their customers. Very lucky to have such a great Toyota shop in MD. I won’t take my truck to anyone else and look forward to being a loyal Land Cruiser Heaven customer for many years.

Took in my 2000 LX470 for full AHC swap to Dobinsons. Frank was very helpful and the work was excellent! Definitely worth the 1.5 hour drive to get this done.

Great place to bring your Toyota/Lexus for any type of mod. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff too. I brought my GX460 in to install an Ironman 4X4 lift and they did a great job. They even helped with a BMC and some fender trimming. Oh and they installed my snorkel. Glad I found them.

I had a fantastic experience at LCH in getting my ARB installed on an 80 series.Scheduling: Frank was extremely responsive via e-mail to the numerous questions I had. He was able to squeeze me in for an appointment on a very short notice, and provided me with a great quote.Reception: I was immediately greeted by one of the employees and was immediately let in to their garage. They were tracking the work needed. Very soon after, Frank oriented me to the shop and gave an overview of the various projects he's working on. He definitely made me feel welcomed to his shop.Service: There were some decisions I had to make during the install process, and Frank and his crew did a great job keeping me informed and getting my inputs. As a certified YouTube mechanic, I have learned time and time again, and something always pops up during a "simple" install, and having the experts at LCH do the work gave me the peace of mind that the work would be done correctly.Outcome: The bumper install came out very nicely resulting in perfect alignment of the new bumper (not too tight or loose), neat wiring job for the lights (well insulated and zip tied), and spare parts (I didn't go for the winch install yet) set aside nicely for future use.Bottom line: It's good to see a shop that does crazy big builds (saw a diesel transplant with manual swap and a full interior/exterior refresh) still look out for the little guys. If you need any work done on your cruiser, I highly recommend you give LCH a shot, and if you do, you'll probably end up writing a review like this.

This was my first time at Land Cruiser Heaven. I expected good things and they delivered, plus some. My 2003 Land Cruiser had a rust problem that unknown to me was safety related. LCH obtained all the parts quickly and was able to complete the repairs one week sooner than expected. They also replaced some smaller but significant rubber and plastic parts that I was concerned about. They were more thorough than I had hoped. When I picked up my Land Cruiser they were very pleasant and explained in detail the repairs and part replacements. And they showed me the rusted old parts, which I highly appreciated. I also have a 1988 Land Cruiser and will definitely call Land Cruiser Heaven when either of my Land Cruisers need significant repairs or any modifications for off-road.

Couldn’t be happier with the service experience with the Team at Land Cruiser Heaven. I was specific in what I wanted but didn’t know the exact resource that best suited the envisioned end-state and Frank and the team were able to work with me to make sure I got what I wanted in a way that I didn’t feel taken advantage of. They have exceeded my expectations repeatedly now with my second interaction with them!

Land Cruiser Heaven has lived up to its name. While I would have loved for Frank and his team to completely restore my 80 series, I simply can't afford all of that right now. Frank helped develop a priority list of repairs that needed to be made and restoration that could wait. Now, I have a truck that runs great and a plan of exactly how I'm going to proceed with the remaining work I'd like done on the truck. Throughout the process, he was fair and transparent. Frank himself provided daily updates of the work being done with pictures and descriptions. The icing on the cake was Frank lending me an awesome truck he's already restored while mine was in his shop for the week. As soon as it's financially feasible, I will definitely bring my truck back to Frank for the remainder of the work.

After my transmission broke (90 BJ70) none one could fix it.I took my 70 series to 3 different shops in two different states. (Florida and TN) and no one had an answer. They took it apart but they could not put it back together. After almost 4 years dealing with the mechanics and wasting money on labor time a met Francisco and Juan Pablo during an Overland Expo East and they took the challenge and put my 70 back to live.The guys over in Land Cruiser Heaven rebuilt my trans and fixed some leaks and other problems due to the car being parked for so long.I drove from Knoxville, TN (400miles) to LCH not because there are not other places that could fix my 70 series, but because the reputation that LCH have. They are a small shop dedicated to Toyotas; everything from oil change to huge make overs. They do it all.Thank you Fran and Juan Pablo for taking care of my 70 series!See you soon!Oscar

After doing a bit of research, i brought my 1996 4Runner for timing belt, engine oil leaks and cylinder head work. I was kept updated with pictures and text messages. The final price was reasonable and the final result top notch. Well worth the drive from Northern VA.Will definitely be backThanks Frank and team

“Great experience. Frank was amazing with helping us get our 200 series Land Cruiser in tiptop shape. Really friendly staff too (Juan Pablo). Going to Land Cruiser Heaven is like going to a toy store for me, they have a lot interesting Land Cruisers projects going on also upgrades and trims that we never had here in the US, like they 80 series LC Diesel Conversions using OEM engines and parts, another nice thing they do is the Auto to manual 6 Speed transmission. And if you want to get your interior to factory new check their 100% leather set cover replacements. For a Toyota enthusiast like me this is a one stop shop, no need to go somewhere else what you get here is quality and professionally installed.I will be back for sure!!!!

The LCH Team is absolutely fabulous. Frank is great and communicates regularly to provide updates on progress. They performed an overall assessment of the vehicle, gave me a detailed plan of what I needed to focus on and completed the repairs over a few phases. Absolutely fabulous as it was a surprise for a family member and they were thrilled. Looking forward to LCH working on the interior and anything else I can think of.

This is the kind of LandCruiser shop that us in the Mid-Atlantic have needed. Enthusiast operated, with parts connections all over the world. If you can dream it, these guys can do it. I will be back for more and can’t wait to get my FJ80 on the trails and exploring.

I needed to get work done quickly on my 2006 LX470 before an endless amount of upcoming road trips this year. They were extremely helpful in getting me scheduled and taken care of within 2 days for upper control arms, lower ball joints and a rebuild of the front hubs. Their flexibility with my rough schedule is a win win and I will surely come back for their business.Thanks again!
