Toyota’s attempt to do reverse engineering of the American JEEP ended up with a huge success called the BJ25 (also called FJ25). When the Korean War began in the 50’s the American government placed large orders where it proved its mettle.
The initials ‘FJ’ stood for F-type JEEP engine. With further development, the FJ40 with a more powerful engine was introduced in 1960 and were produced until 1984. Because of its ruggedness, the FJ40 proved itself as the most toughest and popular vehicle from the Toyota stable.
