Hi after a very long time away from building i thought i would start something different. its a toyota landcruiser converted to a rock crawler

which will include a v8 and a fully scratchbuilt suspension and driveline to fit the 46" super swampers.so far i cut out the dummy engine from the chassis and removed the bonnet from body still thinking of shortening the rear body to convert to a shorty cruiser
