Lachlan’s Camping Cruiser

Lachlan's "Swamp Donkey" started life as 1981 Toyota Landcruiser BJ60.  Since then it has had the body and frame swapped with a 1988 FJ62 and the engine changed to a 4cyl 3.4Litre Turbo Diesel.

Underneath it has heavy duty axles swapped from a 1987 HJ61 that were upgraded with chromoly birfields and axle shafts then regeared to 4:56, a spring-over lift with extra leafs added, and 37x12.50r17 Goodyear wrangler tires on custom steel wheels.

Protecting the body are a custom front bumper equipped with a warn 8274 winch, a custom rear bumper with shafts for dual swing outs (currently being built to hold 3 jerry cans and a 37" spare), and custom rock sliders on the sides. 

A Safari Snorkel protects the engine from sucking up water on creek crossings,  HID headlights and a number of LED light pods brighten up night drives, and an ARB Simpson III Roof Tent makes a comfy place to sleep at the end of the drive. Click the pic to the right for a review on the Roof Tent.
