Our passion is building vehicles that blend classic style with modern technologies. We offer these build packages as turn-key vehicles to our customers with all the details sorted, ready for adventure.  While we love Scouts and LandCruisers these conversions can apply to many different platforms so let your imagination run wild.  If you already own a vehicle we're happy to work with it or we can procure vehicles for our clients to serve as your project foundation.

The Overland

Our Overland package is focused on building a vehicle that can take you into the backcountry and bring you home again with style and comfort.  This philosophy can be applied to many platforms and is tailored to the individual wants and needs of our customers.  As a starting point we suggest the following build content:

  • Suspension upgrades - mild to moderate lift kits with an emphasis on ride comfort and robust components
  • Stage 2 restoration - body removed from frame for suspension upgrades, paint and refinishing of chassis
  • Engine conversions - we recommend the Cummins R2.8 or similar diesel engines for maximum range
  • Body restoration and repair including sheet metal repair, rust removal, polyurea interior coatings, and exterior paint or coatings
  • Upgraded cooling, brake, and steering systems with external coolers
  • Body armor including skid plates, bumpers, rock sliders, and brush guards
  • Exterior storage systems including roof racks, tire carriers, and galley boxes
  • Recovery gear including winches, hi-lift jacks, and recovery boards
  • Camping gear including rooftop tents, solar systems, 12V refrigeration, water supply, auxiliary heaters, and more

The Baja

Ready to hit the sand dunes? Baja spec trucks focus on light weight and powerful engines.  We start with the 505hp Chevrolet LS7 V8 mated to a 6L80E automatic transmission to provide the power for blasting up sand dunes and across desert tracks.  Suspension upgrades and 35” tires complete the package to give a truck that’s ready for fun in the sun.  We typically build these vehicles from International Scouts, Chevy Blazers, or Ford Broncos to allow you to enjoy open top adventures.  Customers may provide the vehicle or we can assist in sourcing suitable basis vehicles.  The package includes:

  • Stage 2 restoration - body removed from frame for suspension upgrades, paint and refinishing of chassis
  • Engine conversions - we recommend a Chevrolet LS7 V8 or the ERod LS3 V8 depending on emissions requirements
  • 6L80E automatic transmissions or NV4500 if manual trans is specified
  • Upgraded cooling systems with aluminum radiators and electric fans
  • Power steering and power brake systems installed
  • Body restoration and repair including sheet metal repair, rust removal, polyurea interior coatings, and exterior paint
  • Exterior accessorization such as baja bumpers, winches, and recovery gear

Additional upgrades are available such as custom 4-link suspensions, chassis swaps, and other powertrain choices.

Packages starting at $30,000

The Ute

WellSorted_FJ60_Final

Looking for a unique overland vehicle with more flexibility than your stand SUV or pickup truck?  You've come to the home of the LandCruiser Ute conversion.  The foundation of this conversion is the venerable Toyota LandCruiser platform. We bob the cab at the C-pillar to allow room to install an Australian Ute-style Overland box.  Engine upgrades include LS conversions, Toyota V8 swaps or enhancements to the factory powertrain.  Suspension upgrades and body armor complete the package to deliver you a vehicle that truly is ready to go anywhere.

The package includes:

  • Removal of body from existing frame
  • Cut and section rear body to create rear wall behind C-pillar
  • Re-installation of the body to the frame, including custom mounts and accessories
  • Interior refinishing and exterior paint
  • Build and installation of a custom Australian Ute-style rear storage box

In addition to the core elements of the build, additional services are available such as suspension upgrades, powertrain improvements, and accessories.

Packages starting at $35,000
