The Toyota FJ Cruiser is a retro style SUV with styling and off road performance reminiscent of the original Toyota FJ40 Land Cruisers. It was first introduced to the public as a concept car at the January 2003 North American International Auto Show. The FJ Cruiser was later approved for mass production after positive consumer response and it debuted at the 2005 North American International Auto Show in final production form.
The Tamiya R/C replica faithfully captures all of the full size FJ’s details down to the large headlights positioned near the center of the front of the car, chunky fenders, and a trio of windscreen wipers. The FJ body is mounted on the capable CC-01 Cross Country chassis, which features independent front suspension and a rear 4-link rigid suspension set up for fun scale trail running enjoyment.

|【 A Funky Four-Wheel Drive 】 This is an R/C model assembly kit of the FJ Cruiser, a 4WD vehicle which made its debut in the North American market in 2006 and Japan in 2010, winning a host of fans with its Land Cruiser 40-inspired style and quirky form with round headlights, oval front grill, chunky fenders, and trio of windscreen wipers. The model’s tough polycarbonate body accurately recreates the American-spec version of the car, including separate parts to depict door mirrors with lamp, spare tire with cover, and front grille. Front and rear light cases can be fitted with LED units (separately sold) for an even more realistic appearance!|
|【 The All-Terrain CC-01 Chassis 】 The CC-01’s highly reliable and efficient full-time 4WD system features a longitudinally-positioned motor, which transmits power to the front wheels via the gearbox and to the rear wheels via propeller shaft. Front and rear differentials enable smooth cornering, and for even greater off-road performance on rough terrain, the rear differential may be locked during assembly. The chassis suspension employs double-wishbone front upper I-arms and lower H-arms plus rear rigid suspension. With 4 CVA oil dampers in total fitted to the front and rear, there’s enough cushion to take on even the roughest surfaces. It also looks the part, with cool 6-spoke wheels featuring metal-plated bead lock style rims, plus mud terrain tires.|
The retro yet progressive design is captured accurately in tough polycarbonate.
Realistic looking bathtub chassis’ appearance was inspired by ladder frames.
Double wishbone suspension is cushioned with high-performance CVA oil dampers.
