Cookies Monster marked one of our largest builds to date & truly tested the capabilities of a touring 79 Series Landcruiser Build.  A big thankyou to Dale for trusting us with this build & furthermore providing us with the insight of the decision making that went into making his dream overlanding vehicle.  

Follow the above video to watch Dale Cook, Fatty & Mick have a walkaround discussion of this kitted out Blue 79 Series Landcruiser - built for the family to adventure across Australia in.

The build is highlighted by in-house electrical work from Daryn "Fatty" Schwerin, our head technician here at Mick Tighe 4x4 & Outdoor, a JMACX 4495 GVM Upgrade / 300mm Chassis Extension, a Norweld Canopy & Tray Package to suit & many more unreal accessories from our partnering companies.

Dale provides an unreal insight into his process of making this overlanding build come to life from the early stages planning this Land Cruiser build overseas from the Philippines. We had great fun with this project & we are grateful for Dale for trusting us with his build.
