They seem to be nearly the same with minor differences.  Mid to later years had e-lockers available, and I've heard of head gasket issues with the last couple years.

You can go through life being scared of the possible, or you can have a little fun and tease the inevitable.

Give a man venison, he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to hunt Blacktail, he'll be frustrated for life!

Slee Off-road has published differences amongst the U.S. spec. FJ80 and FZJ80 vehicles here: http://www.sleeoffroad.com/newbie/newbie100.htm

I have a 1994 and 1997.  I like both of them, but my 1994 came with no roof rack and cloth interior, which I like better.  Neither have e-lockers.  I am still building the 1997, and I will be installing ARBs soon.

Seriously... you're asking questions you could easily google in two minutes.

Read: http://www.brian894x4.com/ExpeditionLandCruiserFZJ80FAQ.html

The data is 10 years old, and I haven't reviewed it in years but should be accurate.
