  • My fortuner build

    Im going to show you guys my build..
    Im starting late so there will be alot of pics to start but will try to keep in updated regularly. Ive come from a highly modified patrol and it was a big step to go to something like a fortuner as i was after a smaller. Comfy on long drives but still a capable off road car.

    To start off with all work on the car has been supplied by MCC dandenong. Hands down best guys to deal with, the only guy's that came up with all the answers for the fortuner as it seems every other company is still learning the car. Everything has been high quality and very happy with it all

    My car is the toyota fortuner base model GX. Only factoy extra was a toyota snorkel and trailer wiring kit.

    Ill show you where its at now and then itemize

    Cheers guys

    Only learning how to do this sorry. Ok so starting with the switch panel. Little disappointed that this is the only spare spot so its already filled. Bar lights. Roof lights. Fog lights and work lights aswell as factory switches. Also to the left redarc trailer brake controller and a switch to turn the fridge on and off

      Next these 2 beauties..

      The idrive- best money spent.. 9 settings and i use number 2 and it makes the biggest difference especially when towing. Its a throttle control box and hightly recomend it.

      Second is my display of the intervolt dcdc charger. Shows both batts voltage and amps its putting in. Also conected to solar shows how much the panels are putting in

        Hi Scottystone, great set up mate.
        Im looking at installing a the Idrive to my Crusade. How has it been to date? fuel economy? power? Another guy has fitted the diesel chip and is impressed with fuel and power but its 3 times the price of the Idrive unit.
        Any feed back is welcomed

        Cheers Jarid

      I have the uniden remote head uhf. I use the steelie magnetic holders for the mic and also my phone in the car. Very easy to use and prefered over standard mic holder

        As i have the gx model and no sat nav i run the vms700hdx gps always and you can see the other location of the steelie for phone holder or obviously the uhf mic can go up there

          Rear bar is mcc. Dual swing away arms. One with sparr wheel which when camping has a bag on for more storage, dual jerry can holders usualy one water one fuel. Also welded on arm behind wheel for lights. One connected to reverse lights facing back and one facing forward on a switch. This one faces forward so when camping and the swing away is open it lights up the area behind the boot.

            Also a nifty spot for the wood splitter

              Side steps/rock sliders and side rails to bull bar.. all MCC bar work btw. Great protection and strong as hell

              Also as seen an oztrail 2.5x2.5 awning that i usually run the side wall extention aswell.. a must really for camping these days

                Front bar again mcc. Comes with fog lights and indicators/parkers. Does do a body cut at front for a snug fit. Fitted with a kingone winch, uhf aerial, vhf aerial, 2 amazing led spot lights and also running underneath body protection from the bar back all from mcc dandenong

                Also seen in pic is the roof led bar.
                This car being the gx had no rack system so i run the rolla track system and cross bars with ally cage on top
