Before we take to the 79

Before we take to the 79

DSC_3515lNeed some inspiration to build your work truck into something that stands out from the rest? Over the next few weeks we’ll be bringing you updates as we transform this sedate looking 79 series LandCruiser into a twin air-locked, fire breathing work-truck from hell.

Craig and the boys in the TJM Hunter Valley workshop will be all over this thing like a rash for the next few weeks and with owner Alex sparing no expense, the boys will be giving it their all to make sure that every little detail is covered. Not to mention the guys from Jmacx will be waving their magic wand over this truck. Yep, that’s right…I said the J word. This thing will be rolling out of our workshop with a full coil sprung rear end and GVM upgrade.

Looking for something to fulfil his work needs as well as a truck to do some serious touring and bush work, owner Alex took some inspiration from our own 79 series LandCruiser and decided to go the whole hog with the build, including the Jmacx rear coil conversion. This will be the first time a Jmacx coil conversion has been done on the new single cab 79 with the upgraded ANCAP safety rating so the boys up there at Jmacx are excited to see how the new fit goes. There’s been a few changes made to the interior of the new single cab too, so the guys at the Department of the Interior are also keen to get their gear into the new model.DSC_3507l

With a list of mods and accessories including chip, exhaust, custom snorkel and air box, dual battery, suspension, wheels and tyres, lights that will turn night into day, that awesome rear coil conversion and enough bar work to make Mad Max envious just to list a few things, this 79 series will be transformed from a basic work horse to a touring weapon.

We love nothing more than when get a bare bones project like this and take great satisfaction in handing the keys back to the owner with all the hard work paying off for the end result to put a smile on their face. So stay tuned to this page for regular updates on Alex’s 79 build, the details on the work we’re doing, the products we’re fitting and the benefits of those products.
