Toyota 79 series Landcruiser dual cab,
Modified #51.

Another Landcruiser dual cab 79 series, this one being the first of the 2017 (updated version) versions to make it onto Modified and this one has portal axles!

Sean owns one of the cleanest built 79’s that I’ve seen to date (with 4 wheels not 6). The interior is immaculate and the latest mods done to the rear (after the shoot) are so well organized. No over the top mods here, just high quality which will last for a long time. The only part I would question on this vehicle are the front shocks but other than that it’s a ‘high quality build’.

The roof top tent (RTT) is something I’ve never seen before and opens plus closes automatically within 20secs!

Being on portal axles this Landcruiser really has great underbody clearance and at the same time is engineered and gains good height without the body roll.

For everything else watch the feature.
