In addition to above, i will also recommend a Leatherman Utility Kit. But with your kind of over-landing you already have it I guess.

It is a great lovely SUV of Toyotas. You too care and keep it very well.Camping gear is an another boon. I had used our office Land cruiser in the past, many times from the oldest model to the latest too. Apart from the Land cruiser we were very familiar with the Toyota Hilux(its a pick up or camper type). These are the real comfortable plus adventurous cars of Toyotas. Nice to see the lovely one again in team-bhp. Is there any issue of availability of spares.

Its A great lovely SUV LC and love to see more mods on it, recently i procured a Six person Tent from my store(prague) as i am in prague. and i am dying to visit my home town and plan for a trip in my safari.

pity is that iron man 4*4 have a branch in bangalore And they dont have any thing for safari,Scorpio or innova, i am really inspired by the boot cabinets,

once i am back i would try to plan on my safari.

will try to post the pictures of the tent from my trip once i am back.

Hi All ,
Thank you everyone for your Lovely comments and views. The Car came together with the help of Mandeep aka Renegade , Allan aka Extreme power and Zac 4x4.

It was Mandeep's idea to make a expedition vehicle and luckily we came to know of Zac Maratt and hence we could get top quality stuff from Ironman4x4 in India.

Its a pleasure to know that someone in India has the enthusiasm and determination to build an expedition vehicle like this!! GREAT WORK!!!!!

The difficulties and limitations in India i am sure have demotivated many like me. But your project brings hope for sure.

Any further upgrades?

It would be great if you could tell us more about your overnight stays in the vehicles.

Hi Rahul,

Sorry for going OT. I see in your last pic that you have put the LC on a barge. Did you take the Mum - Goa coastal route in between? Where was this place?

Hello Sir,
Your LC is an absolute monster. It was a treat seeing all those pictures. I recently saw a white LC with a huge high lift kit here in Bangalore. The owner said it was done in mumbai and i looked up the Facebook page he had given as address also but now I have lost the link. The person running the operation had a Christian name, you have any idea Sir who that could be and his website/facebook page if any?..According to the owner of the LC this person is famous for high lift kits/off road suspensions etc...Thanks

Hello

Just came across your thread today. Not only do you have a vehicle which would make anyone envious, you are putting it to use in a manner which was most likely the way it was meant to be used when the engineers designed it.

Wishing you many memorable and safe expeditions in it.

Cheers
