1979 TOYOTA LANDCRUISER FJ45
It’s fully restored with all steel panels, and the original 2F motor. It has been my dream to own one since I was a young kid. I finally got one and did all the work myself -Aaron Edmondon
It has had a full 2015 facelift, with aftermarket grille, and LED headlights with LED switchback indicators. A long list of aftermarket gear includes a Rival bullbar with 14,500lb winch; Stedi Type-X Pros; Bilstein 4in adjustable lift (front); extended upper control arms and ball joints; rear Enduro Pro remote-res shocks and lifted leafs at 4in; and a Rival bar (rear).
The canopy has 2900mm drawers and full custom-built side panels and wings, with AGM battery; Enerdrive DC2DC 40amp charging system; 1200W inverter; Projecta battery management system; GME XRS UHF; MSA drop slide; and an ARB 60L Zero fridge. The custom Boss Air suspension consists of fully remote-controlled airbags in the rear, with a 19L air tank that has a separate line for the ARB air system for inflating tyres, etc.
The high-output twin ARB air-compressor is hard-mounted. Other gear includes 20in Hussla Toxic rims with Extreme M/Ts; a custom-mounted roof tray with a Darche 270 awning; solar panels; two sets of TREDs; and GME antenna on a swivel mount. Twin air lockers are about to be installed, and a Raptor Stage 2 supercharger with front-mount intercooler is being built as we speak. Plus, a new canopy has just been ordered from 4D Engineering -Dion Kirkland
1985 LAND ROVER DEFENDER
Registered as a nine-seater, it runs a 5.7-litre V8 diesel. It has diff breathers, full Monroe Wylie coil and shock suspension, a five-speed Santana gearbox, custom half-snorkel, UHF CB radio and a diff lock -Tony Taylor
