I’m considering selling my 1994 Mitsubishi-built J-54. I love this Jeep. I just don’t have the space and cash for it right now. It has an original clean, efficient, low-miles 2.5l Mitsubishi diesel motor. While these Jeeps are sold by importers all over the U.S. for more than $15K, I’m more interested in finding the right buyer so I’m open to discussing any offers for sale or trade.
These Jeeps are an over-built cousin to the CJ3B. I think of them as Japan’s love letter to the Willy’s Jeeps brought over during WWII and the occupation years following the war. Built on the same Mitsubishi factory lines that manufactured Willy’s overland Jeeps for the Korean war and the Asian commercial market, J-55s have a reputation of out-performing their inspiration in virtually every way.

I bought my Jeep while stationed in Okinawa, Japan from the original owner and had it professionally brokered and imported back to the U.S. It was manufactured in 1994 in the Mitsubishi Aerospace factory. The original owner had lovingly cared for this Jeep for more than 20 years. He was passionate about the original war Jeeps and diesel trucks, so he made some aesthetic modifications (seats, fenders) but maintained the original mechanicals in pristine condition. The only mechanical change from factory is a professional exhaust upgrade. I replaced the clutch The seats are in workable condition, but I’d planned to replace them. New soft tops are also available, and you’ll want one if you plan to store it outside or drive in cold/rainy conditions. The batteries are due for replacement. Other than that, the only issues I can think of are cosmetic issues.
Initially, I’d planned on building it out like the CJ3B’s that ICON 4x4 manufactured a few years ago. Read more about those Jeeps here:
