TOYOTA LAND CRUISER VDJ79-300
'AUSSIE DREAM TOURER'
4xOverland’s 2020 Hero Land Cruiser is under development and is expected to be available for customer orders, July 2020.
Based on a 4-seater Toyota Land Cruiser VDJ79 dual-cab, 4,5L turbo-diesel.
The standard VDJ79 has one major flaw in its design. While the platform is unrivalled, when fully loaded, handling is - not to put it lightly, poor. But, because the basic vehicle is so strong, reliable, durable, practical and easy to modify, making those modifications is not only worth it, it's not expensive.
The key design basics are:
300mm chassis extension to correct load carrying issues associated with this model.
Rear axle width correction.
GVM upgrade to 3950 kgs (1540kgs front, 2500kgs rear)
Vehicle remains similar to original length.
State-wide ADR approvals in place.
Multi functional tray.
Full set of touring accessories
Available in two and four seat options.

Toyota can almost always find a white one in a few weeks. But with any other colour, (taup, sliver, dark grey) the wait is normally about 90 days. Our work takes six months or more. Some lesser item are shipped from overseas, and so timings can be difficult to determine, particularly with COVID-19 restrictions.
