Anthony’s 100 series Landcruiser is an absolute power beast, on the day of the shoot there was no stopping the 100 series climbing the soft sand dune systems at Wilbinga in W.A.
He has got so much power out of this 100 series Land Cruiser yet kept it within safe levels to keep the 100 series LC reliable for long trips and remote travel.
Apart from the spectacular engine bay the Landcruiser is well thought out and setup for distant travel to a day at the beach.
No track will give this Toyota too much trouble with its 34’ inch tyres and twin locked differentials and all the bar work to protect the sides on those tight tough tracks.

It is great to see a 100 series Landcruiser used and put through its paces, as Anthony is not worried about getting the vehicle dirty or pinstriped, which is just part of awesome 4 wheeling.

Anthony's modification tips:
After having problems with a few cheap products and companies I have learnt its worth paying that bit extra to get a better quality product.
1. Careful when lifting an ifs 100 series it is very important to keep the CV angles as close to stock as possible highly recommend aftermarket upper control arms to keep the cvs happy when out bush
2. to make up for lack of flex on the ifs 100 series I found the front and rear arb lockers just the thing I needed to ensure I can keep driving those articulated tracks as they like to pop wheels up like it’s going out of fashion lol
3. Don’t be cheap spend that bit extra and get something local or at least with a warranty I strongly believe buying once as I had problems with buying products of eBay
