Honey, I shrunk the LandCruiser 79 Series!

    Australian off-road recovery equipment company Maxtrax, in collaboration with a number of other companies, has revealed a highly-modified Suzuki Jimny that’s inspired by a Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series single-cab ute.

    Dubbed the Toyzuki 39.5, this “one-of-a-kind chopped Suzuki Jimny” was shown off at this year’s National 4×4 Outdoors show at the Brisbane Showgrounds over the weekend.


    TOYZUKI giveaway registrations are now open at toyzuki.com.au 🤙🏼 We built this one of a kind Suzuki Jimny for YOU! After our Jeep-ny build, inspired by the US Army Jeep, we knew we needed to build something special… We looked at our Jeep-ny parked next to the iconic 79 Series LandCruiser… and an idea was born! Introducing the Toyzuki 39.5 (think 79 but divide it by 2 😉)! Custom built with Australia’s leading 4×4 brands, we’re excited to take this little beast around the @4x4show’s this year, starting today in Brisbane! See it for yourself and enter to win this one of a kind chopped Suzuki Jimny with the works.

    A highlight of this modified Jimny is the tray-back canopy setup.

    Other modifications include a custom grille, bonnet scoop, AFN bullbar with underbody protection, Rhino roof rack, Torqit snorkel, and a number of round driving lights.

    It appears to be finished in Sandy Taupe paint.

    It’s unclear if this modified Suzuki Jimny produces any more power. The regular model is powered by a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine producing 75kW of power and 130Nm of torque.

    Maxtrax is giving away this Toyzuki 39.5 as part of a competition that hasn’t started yet. You can register for the competition at toyzuki.com.au
