2000 Toyota UZJ100 Land Cruiser

We built this truck up from a stock 2000 UZJ100 Land Cruiser with 124,000 miles on it. We built this truck to drive down to Latin America, which we did in the Cruiser over five month!

Fifteen thousand miles covered and we made it all the way to Panama and back in the truck without any problems! Highlights of the trip were Baja, San Luis Potosi and Guanjuato in Mexico as well as Nicaragua, El Salvador and Panama.

The bumpers we modified to accept hammock poles and Ian spent many nights sleeping off the side of the truck under the stars on the trip! Maintenance on the truck during the trip was performed by Ian who was carrying the spare parts and tools.
