About Us

We take the best further

With more demand than we will ever satisfy, we import Toyota Land Cruiser Diesel Trucks - the most capable 4x4s ever created - to be sold in North America for the first time.

Our business involves taking the 1-ton Toyota Land Cruiser Diesel -- an already extreme 4x4 and a staple of the harshest climates / terrain around the world -- further, and making an already unique 4x4 all that more unique. With the kit for these vehicles drawn from the best of the best US aftermarket off-road parts suppliers in the business, these vehicles are the equivalent of a very limited-edition Swiss Army knife.

LC America, Inc. is a US based privately owned company. We are registered with an SAE Automotive World Manufacturer Identifier (WMI), we are licensed as both a Vehicle Manufacturer and a Vehicle Dealer, we are Dun and Bradstreet Verified and Rated, Comodo Certified and proud SEMA Members.

Our Story

My parent's families were hard working immigrants to this country from Eastern Europe and settled in and around Newark and Bayonne, New Jersey in the early 1900's. From the stories I have heard, from an early age my dad – who I always saw as the idea man – was quite the hard worker as well, starting out as a paperboy and moving on to selling eggs and then running a full-fledged vegetable/flower stand along Route 57. Some 40 years ago now, my mom and dad – then the parents of four still very young children and in Northern New Jersey by this time – took their entire life savings, very generous assistance from Ms. Mary Mulligan and their tireless ambition and started Lawn Spray Company in Califon, NJ. I can still see my father sitting with us at the kitchen table with the scissors and the Sears Catalog cutting out a picture of a farmer with a hose in his hand and using that as our company logo for a very, very long time. He bought a little blue two wheel trailer that he outfit with a tank and a sprayer, and he went out and sold lawn care every day of the week and often on weekends – and business was good. He bought a larger flat-bed Ford truck – outfit by Papp Iron Works, then still located under the Pulaski Skyway – to go along with that little blue trailer and my two brothers worked there with my mom and dad while I went off to college – and business was good. Some 10 years later and with my 20+ year old brother – and the new idea man – largely at the helm, the company had grown to 20+ trucks and 40 employees and had customers across all of New Jersey – and business was good. So when TruGreen ChemLawn came calling, the buyout was good and the family moved on to other adventures.

The impetus behind LC America effort came to us last fall when we ran across a Facebook page imploring Toyota to "Bring the 70 Series Land Cruiser and Diesels to the USA." Having owned several Land Cruisers over the years, I was intrigued. How is it that almost 14,000 people can be interested in importing newer Toyota Land Cruiser to the US? More importantly, how is it possible that no one has looked into making 70 Series imports a reality?

So, we studied. We looked at the Department of Transportation regulations as a roadmap to success rather than impossible amounts of red tape to be traversed. We read. We made a zillion calls. We studied some more. And in the end, the L79 America was born.

It's almost like being a kid in a candy store isn't it? If not just a wee bit more expensive. So let's hope that three years from now we are able to offer a full line of Toyota 70 Series vehicles to our customers. With an inventory of more than 3,000 LC79 Series vehicles to work with, we are confident that we can create the Land Cruiser of your dreams. But for the moment, this is what we are working to be able to offer:

  • LC America Double Cab Base – White.
  • LC America Double Cab GXL Off Road Modified – White, Tan, Gray.
  • LC America Double Cab GXL Off Road Pro Ultimate – Any color offered by Toyota.

Please keep in mind that all new 70 Series Land Cruisers are now equipped with a full suite of electronic driver aids which, in addition to the existing ABS package, now includes electronic vehicle stability control (VSC), active traction control (A-TRC), hill-start assist control (HAC), brake assist and electronic brake-force distribution. Off-roaders will be happy to know that VSC automatically disengages in low range, and A-TRC can be manually disengaged for sand driving. Front and rear diff locks are still standard on GXL models and optional on Double Cab Base variants. All new 70 Series Land Cruisers are now fitted with front seatbelt pre-tensioners and a passenger seatbelt reminder and a new hood/bonnet across the range features a more pronounced "power bulge" designed to provide sufficient clearance above engine-bay components to meet pedestrian impact requirements. The split-rim wheels on previous lower-grade Base models have now been replaced with single-piece 16x6-inch steel wheels with 225/95R16 tires standard. Driver amenities include an available 4.5l turbo-diesel engine that meets Euro 5 emissions standards and is US compliant, cruise control, auto-locking front hubs, a new fuse box and revised gearing that reduces fuel consumption.
