The 2008 Toyota Land Cruiser is quite the versatile full-size SUV with a luxurious interior, a redesigned/modernized exterior, three rows of seating, and full-time 4WD. The interior of the 2008 Land Cruiser has features that luxury vehicles have made necessities, like the cooler in the center console and a rear entertainment system.
Behind the scenes, the Toyota Land Cruiser sports a 5.7-liter V8 that produces 381 horsepower @ 5,600 rpm and 401 lb-ft of torque @ 3,600 rpm. For the off-road enthusiasts, the Land Cruiser has the new Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS) that allows the sway bars to free themselves from the vehicle via a hydraulic system. KDSS adjusts stabilizer bar effects based on driving conditions and when off-roading, it enhances suspension articulation. The crawl control system, activated with an on/off switch, also helps when going downhill or uphill over rocky or rough terrain. Worried about rolling over while off-roading? Don’t be. The Land Cruiser’s engineers took safety seriously. Toyota included supplemental restraint systems like active headrests and roll-sensing side curtain airbags (for a total of 10 airbags in the vehicle).

Good review overall. Don’t think you covered ground clearance. Also, is it available with locking differentials?
One last thing on the subject of shirts. Either tuck it in or leave it out.
