GALLERY: Toyota Land Cruiser 79 Series

One of the meanest 79 Series Cruisers on the planet.

THE aptly named ‘Thug Truck’ is perhaps the meanest 79 Series making tracks on Australian dirt.

The immaculate set-up, pieced together by owner, Blake Oldham, has been reworked both inside and out to make it one of the most capable 4x4s on the planet.

More than a few pennies have been spent on the rig since Blake left the showroom floor, but the results clearly speak for themselves.

The daily-driven Cruiser sports 37-inch tyres, has had a rear coil conversion, and its 4.5-litre V8 pumps out 204rwhp and 680Nm. Read the full review here
