    Default The LandCruiser Project is officially a go !!!!........

    So I took delivery of the LandCruiser LC79 Single Cab Pick-up (Ute).

    I am so excited that now my project can begin.

    I will post regular updates with each new development.

    You're definitely going to generate some envy with that unobtanium (USA) truck.

    We have 8 of the worlds deadliest snakes here in Australia, I suppose getting the LandCruiser is some kinda karma.......

    Overlanding is going massive over there, love the products coming out of the USA for the community.

    Shoot, I'd take snakes if that gets a 79! Here in New England we only have 3 poisonous snakes, and they are seldom if ever seen. We do have regular blizzards, occasional hurricanes, and rare tornadoes, doesn't that get us something?

    You Aussies piss me off with all your cool toys. Boy, I am jealous.

    Are you going to use the Marks 4wd portal axles in this build?

    Build update:

    I have installed my winch electrics which were not fitted by the dealer or TJM who put the Bullbar on.

    New was the install of the spot lights and driving lights.

    The ARB compressor was next, I had to fabricate a bracket to mount it under the bonnet, fully wired in with dash mounted switch.

    Then a secondary fuel filter and diff / gearbox breathers.

    The design of the camper module subframe is almost ready for fabrication.

    Watch this space and sign up to my you tube channel for more details of the build.
