IF YOU thought Patriot Campers couldn’t one-up itself, you thought wrong.
The high bar it set with its ‘Black Truck’ LC79 has skyrocketed with the revelation of the Patriot Camper 6x6 Land Cruiser 79 Series.
In conjunction with some of the leading businesses in the Australian 4x4 industry, Patriot Campers has turned a 2017 Land Cruiser 79 GXL into the ultimate 500hp tourer.
The 6x6 utilises a JMACX 6x6 kit designed and engineered to work with up to 35-inch tyres. However, like most aspects of the build, Justin took it to the next level and fitted 37-inch Mickey Thompson MTZs.
In fact, basically every part of the LC79 has been modified. “The only thing on this truck that is still Toyota is probably the cab,” Patriots owner, Justin Montesalvo, told us.
Key mods include: airbags supplied by Airbag Man, JMACX rear diff housings, Marks 4WD portal hubs, GSL Fabrication 100% kit, TJM intake snorkel, five-inch stainless steel exhaust stacks and an NPC clutch. Watch the video for a full list of custom work.
The insane 6x6 premiered at the Melbourne 4x4 Show back in August – and we were the first to drive it not long after the event, where it had just 400km on the odo.
To read all about the 6x6 LC79 in detail – and our thoughts after driving it – pick up a copy of 4X4 Australia’s November issue which will be in stores on October 5.
Until then, enjoy the video.
