the Wreckage

Fondly called “the Wreckage” or “the 60”. Tom of famed Tomsoffroad&Customs has a 1983 60 series land cruiser that he has been modifying for the last 5 years and is still in a constant state of evolution while being thrashed to the max. In particular Tom has a plan to address the rear suspension by installing an 80 series rear diff housing and change the suspension to a double triagulated setup. Every thing from the cab rearward is likely to get modified. Also on the list are new beadlocks and hydro assisted steering sourced from Trailgear.

Tomsoffroad&Customs offer fabrication services and sell well known products from Amada, Dobi and other cool suspension components.

The 60 for the time-being  is with:

  • The Factory 2h 4 litre which is turboed with custom manifold.
  • Custom 4″ snorkel and air box, 3″ exhaust, custom engine and gearbox mount.
  • 5 spd, Marks crawler transfer gears (58% low reduction, 8% high reduction)
  • Front diff is factory 60 series housing, heavily reinforced.4.1:1 ratio 9.5″ diff with Sparten mechanical locker
  • Original Bobby Longfield cv’s/axles, trailgear hub gears, six shooter Hi-steer knuckles, IFS hub swap, arp studs in everything. Heavy duty tie rod and draglink.
  • Rear diff is a 60 series housing heavily reinforced, 4.1:1 ratio 9.5″ diff with a Sparten locker.
  • 37×14.5×15 Maxxis Creepy Crawlers on 15×10″ rims
  • The Suspension is a 3 link with panhard rod front, 16″ Amada coilovers.
  • Triangulated 4 link rear. 16″ Amada coilovers and Amada hydraulic bump stops
  •  The Body/chassis from the rear wall forward is 60 series chassis which has been reinforced. Rearward is custom chassis.
  • Custom front bar with a Warn 8274 winch. Sliders, roll cage, custom deck, custom gear box and bash plate, as you can see, everything pretty much is custom on the Wreckage.
The man down south is the guy to speak to for fabrication and mods, we will be featuring a few of his monster builds and happy customers in the weeks to come. If you’d like to keep up to date with the wreckage build go to its Facebook page.
