Awesome pics. Really jealous of your terrain. Pretty ballsy dipping it hood deep with no snorkel. Broke any front cv's yet?

It's a Land Cruiser! Designed to wade water that high. The airbox was totally dry afterwards.

CVs holding strong. I carry a spare with me on the harder trails, though.

Nice videos! Obstacle avoidance by the camera drone looked quite good also.

Thanks! The drone is a Skydio 2, it's the best! Really makes it easy to just focus on driving. I launch and land through my sunroof!

Since I got this truck and started hanging out with Land Cruiser people, things have escalated rapidly:

Nice set up. I currently drive a 2001 lx470. Nothing crazy. AHC gone. ARB heavys with an ARB front bumper and warn 12 winch. Pretty basic but also pretty awesome vehicle.

Previous was a 1992 fj80. Small lift 33s and arb front and rear bumpers. Winch and a few other things. Roof rack. Loved it but I wanted newer and nicer. And we'll I hate I sold it. Had a 1995 with factory lockers and loved it. Land cruiser people are like jeep people (I used to be a Jeep only guy). Always nice to see others actually using their cruisers.

Sweet LX! Yeah a couple of my friends sold their 80s to get newer 4Runners or 100s or whatever and every single one of them regrets it.

Hey man, thanks for posting these pics. I'm sure there's bazillions of examples of 1/1 trail rigs on
other (1/1) sites but I'm not on any of those sites, so it's nice to have them here.

This gives a lot of detail ideas of real life accessories to add to models--good stuff.

Guess I better look at getting myself an offroad 'station wagon/grocery getter'...that C54 body kit is beckoning
