THE Rambler Edition Land Cruiser 79 is a full turnkey tourer put together by the folks at TJM 4x4 Megastores.
The tricked-up LC79 – you’re ogling Rambler Edition No.001 – runs a full gamut of off-road essentials, with the base Toyota chosen for its V8 diesel engine, tough build quality and large fuel capacity.
The subdued exterior is coated in that Sandy Taupe paintwork, with the front-end featuring a TJM Outback bullbar (running to side rails and steps); a TJM Torq 12,000lb winch, and a TJM Airtec snorkel. Moving to the rear and the powdercoated rear tray and canopy are the work of Spinifex Manufacturing, while a Hayman Reese X-Bar tow bar sits at the tail.
The V8 is tweaked via a TJM 4x4 Megastore ECU tune for 40 per cent more power, with a Torqit exhaust helping with the added grunt.
In addition to a canopy chock-full of practical equipment (Bushman fridge, Spinifex power panel and TJM Connect compressor … to name a few), the Rambler’s ride quality was enhanced via TJM’s adjustable Pace remote reservoir coil/leaf springs, a TJM heavy duty swaybar and a TJM steering damper. TJM also gave the rig its second-stage manufacturing GVM upgrade, upping GVM to 3950kg.
Amazingly, once the build is complete the Rambler LC79 retains the full Toyota warranty.
The Rambler Edition LC79 by TJM is running a truck-load more kit, but you’ll have to read all about it in the April 2019 issue of 4X4 Australia – in stores now.
