HUNTER MODEL - (4 DOOR)

The Hunter is a very special truck. Based on the Outdoorsman build specs we modify an FJ to 4-doors. While Toyota made 4-door pickups, they never produced a jeep style vehicle with 4 doors. This requires a lot of custom fabrication on our part, but the end result is something truly unique. Additional upgrades include: Custom tuned LS V8, Supercharger, Intercooler, Low temp radiator, Keyless entry/remote start, Custom grill, Ipad stereo receiver, LED Offroad Lights, Safari Rack, Safari Snorkel, In-vehicle gun and gear safe.

STAND OUT, STAND ABOVE

We started with one goal: restore the best Classic Land Cruisers, and update them for modern day adventurers with contemporary technology, comfort, and advanced production methods.

"We started with stock restorations, but quickly realized that the capabilities of the original engine and suspension couldn't live up to the demands we placed on it." - Austin Peterson, Founder
