Most modern "JDM" cars are actually designed, manufactured, and assembled here in the states... I.E. Toyota Tundra and Toyota Tacoma.
Any Toyota's VIN that starts with a "J" is built in Japan. I just bought my first foreign car ever and it is a 2007 FJ Curiser, (all FJ cruisers are built in Japan). I replaced an 2003 Escape with 255,000 + miles on it and still going strong. I leased my wife a 2014 JKU in Nov and she loves it. I had a 1996 ZJ and it had it's moments with only 195,000 miles on it so I got rid of it. I dropped down to 1 vehicle for me and 1 for the wife. Along with my toy that is only driven in the summer on clear days.
A 5 minute video just walking around and starting a vehicle makes me suspicions. The frame, drive line, suspension and who know what else has to have been altered to use a 350 and a solid axle swap. Unless I was very mechanically competent I wouldn’t want that Toyota. Toyota has a great reputation, so does the Chevy 350, but that doesn't mean that they are set up right.
I have a wrangler and I like it, I also have a 4Runner that I like much much better than the Grand I had.
The two vehicles you mention are not comparable.
What is it that you are wanting the vehicle for?
