Cool 200 With A Difference

This would have to be one of the coolest looking 200 series LandCruisers we’ve come across and with stage one of the build just being completed with plenty more goodies to go on this very unique looking wagon, this is one beast that’s bound to turn heads were-ever it goes!

Our good mates at Valley Air Conditioning were after something different, to stand out and set their vehicle apart. They opted for a combination of a flat grey wrap with all the chrome blacked out, black bar work and wheels. The TJM Patriot bar was the perfect option for this unique looking truck as the limited-edition bar has only 100 units to its name and is one of the stand-out features of the vehicle. It features the T13 Outback design with all the hoops removed, laser cut logo and the limited edition build numbered badge on the front of the bar with inspiration taken from the Patriot Campers’ Mega Tourer.

This 200 is running Fox 2.0 Performance suspension all round including heavy duty upper control arms by Black Hawk and a Roadsafe diff drop kit. This gives the car the ride quality you would expect from a 200 Series but will also perform off-road better than most.

It’s off road ability is now backed up by Harrop E-lockers both front and rear, along-side Harrop diff breathers at both ends. The engine bay houses a HPD billet alloy catch can and secondary fuel filter kit by Diesel Care for extra engine protection.  Outback touring capability is improved by a dual battery system using a TJM 25A 3 stage BCDC charging unit and 100A/hr deep cycle battery with solar input for keeping the beers cooler for longer on those extended camping trips.

A TJM Airtec snorkel has been fitted to the 200 for cleaner air flow and water crossings. The Airtec design for the 200 Series has a low-profile head which is designed to catch wind drafts from the front of the car and windscreen and has a neat, tidy look that is tucked down well out of harms way for when you’re tackling the tight nasty tracks.

A Rhino Pioneer platform gives the big wagon valuable added storage room and the backbone mounting system not only adds integrity to the unit, but also looks the part as well. A GME XRS370C UHF radio and AE4705B antenna have been fitted to handle communications and a neat finish is achieved by using the Lightforce face plate to wire the handpiece into the dash through one of the factory auxiliary switch panels.

There is more to come with this awesome looking rig and the next instalment will include some more trick bar work and we’ll be sure to bring you some more good shots of the beast completed.
