BEFORE YOU watch the above video of this wicked Y62 Patrol, do yourself a favour and turn the volume up.
Listening to the howl of the VK56 petrol V8 – aided by a custom tune and a Harrop supercharger kit - will make you smile just like its owner does every time he’s behind the tiller.
CUSTOM: Y62 dual-cab ute
Said Patrol you’re currently ogling is an STL-spec model sans the Hydraulic Body Motion Control (HBMC) system, chosen so that it would be easier for the rig’s owner Anthony to lift and modify.
Much of the custom work found on the Patrol was carried out by the team at On Track 4x4 in Melbourne, and this includes a suspension lift utilising adjustable remote reservoir coil-overs from Radflo; a GVM increase from 3500kg to 4085kg, a set of Airbag Man bags in the rear; a diff-drop kit; and an ARB air locker in the front diff.
Among a long list of aftermarket goodies, highlights include a 5-inch PDC snorkel and airbox; Pacemaker headers; a Manta exhaust system; a Long Range Automotive 140-litre secondary fuel tank; a Predator front bar housing a Runva 13XP winch and a pair of Stedi lights; a Motop roof tent and 23Zero awning; and Raslarr rock rails and rear bar.
To read the comprehensive write-up of this inspiring build, you’ll need to pick up a copy of the Summer 2021 issue of 4X4 Australia magazine, which is in stores now!
