    Hmmm.
    Now I also want a bigger Hilux but will then need bigger wheels and will then have to change my diffs and will then have to change my engine again and will then have to redo my EFI again and will then have to upgrade my exhaust system again and will then have to fit a another bigger petrol tank again. *Sigh...* Guess I will have to keep a "low profile" in my baby lux with all these terrible (good looking) monster 4x4's around. :-(

    Arctic Land Cruiser:







    35x12.5 R 17 wheels. Front and back suspension lifted 40mm. Ground clearance improved from 225mm to 270mm, attack and departure angles improved by 7-8º.

    Drives very well with surprisingly little body roll.

    Trailrider as hulle nie die diff ratios verander nie wat is die punt van die conversion. Dit is duur en gaan definitief brandstofverbruik en clutch leeftyd negatief beinvloed. Of mis ek iets?

    The Cruiser, doesn't look like an arctic truck .

    I think the company makes different models for different purposes.
    South Africa bought a blue one that was with us on the day.
    This blue one was sent to SANAE base for logistics.



    The one in the pic with me below is a genuine Arctic truck
    I had the pleasure of taking it out for a spin at Atlantis.
    No aircon. they recon at the antarctic you dont need one, driest desert in the world.
    They keep the diesel engine running the whole year round, and pump diesel from one tank to another.
    Now Neil would say a glorified garden refuse bakkie. but he would like one i thinks
    In the second pic below, the crew put some special diesel in for me, they cant use the diesel that we use in those engines. Gehard was in charge as usual.

    I did some of my own tests.

    On the big dune at Atlantis, the swell was huge this day after humungous winds.
    I took the truck up to half way and braked. Then i slowley just drive up the rest of the way to the top.
    The other pic is the suspension at the rear of the bakkie
    You cant do that with a normal vehicle.
    This vehicle came on a flatbed, very difficult to control on a road.

    Remember you get different AT conversions and it's done to the spec the client wants.

    Depending on how extreme you want to go the things done change. Wheels fitted can be as small as 33" and goes up to 44" (I speak under correction).

    In the extreme cases the axles are moved, suspension changed dramatically (like in OFFROAD ADDICT's pics) and all ratios etc. needs to be changed.

    So it's not like they don't change ratios, it depends on what spec you want and can pay for. On the 35" the trucks are fine without the changes mostly, esp. in the cases of vehicles with strong engines. Even the first 90kW Amarok didn't struggle.

    superhansie I have driven several models of these Arctic Trucks now, including this Amarok right after I've had the standard Amarok for a week test. While the change in looks is dramatic, there is not a dramatic negative impact on the performance of the vehicle. In my opinion the advantages of the conversion is huge, while the negatives are minimal.

    Nope. Definately not AT.


    The Arctic FJ:



    An FJ with bigger wheels, better approach and departure angles, better ground clearance, better suspension.

    Go anywhere vehicle?
