TOYOTA HILUX: JEREMY LANDT
(4x4 Australia Readers' Rigs Winner of the Month)

275hp and 850Nm of locked and lifted Toyota Hilux set up for off-road touring with the works – rolling on 35s. It’s the ultimate base, with quick set-up and pack-up. I’ve built this as is from the factory floor, with only the best components fitted.

2012 TOYOTA FJ CRUISER: NEIL LAWLEY

Kit includes a Safari snorkel, ECB alloy front bar, Kaymar rear bar with one spare and two fuel carriers, ARB rock sliders, Superior Engineering upper control arms, two-inch lift via Old Man Emu suspension, ERP’s rust protection, diff breather, Ironman 4x4 underbody protection, Rhino Rack Platform, IPF Xtreme 900 HIDs, light bar, TMAX 10000lb winch, LRA 120l second fuel tank, UHF, King steelies and 285/70/17 Nittos, and Bushwacker flares.

2015 TOYOTA LAND CRUISER 79: SHIROI TRUCK NANAMARURAN

Land Cruiser 70 30th Anniversary Edition, from Japan, with the 4.0L petrol V6 engine.

2016 TOYOTA LAND CRUISER 79: DAHRIN WIRTZ

“I ordered my Cruiser in November 2015 to avoid having the DPF. When it arrived in February 2016 I got to work on it and have not stopped ever since. The 70 series has a few issues such as wheel track, gear ratios, clutch, etc., but it is by far one of the best and most capable 4WDs on the market.”

2016 FORD RANGER WILDTRAK: MICHAEL GORDON

Features include 17-inch SSW black chrome rims, Mickey Thompson ATZ P3s, two-inch Bilstein Platinum Lift; ARB Summit front and rear bars; custom in-cabin drawers, and iDrive.

2012 JEEP WRANGLER JKU: STEVE CASS

It’s a four-door with the 3.6-litre Pentastar petrol and five-speed auto. Complete with 3-inch lift and 34-inch muddies, and proper suspension setup including updated front end. It’s got an RR front steel bullbar with Warn winch; steel rock sliders and underbody protection; auxiliary fuel tank giving more than 150 litres; custom rear drawers and tailgate table; a dual Optima battery system under the hood managed by Redarc DCDC charger; and a built-in ARB compressor. Love it, as it’s reliable, economical and goes everywhere and gets us back each time safely.
