Say what you want on Joe Rogan's podcast, but there's no doubt that the 51-year-old comic has a good taste on motor vehicles. Confirming this statement is a video posted on YouTube of Rogan's Toyota Land Cruiser 1995 by Jonathan Ward.
This is not a Land Cruiser of the 80 series, however, as Ward and the Icon team gave the Japanese SUV and turned it into a machine of dreams of enthusiasts off the road. Built and equipped with a set of Fox Racing shock absorbers, this Land Cruiser has larger brakes, robust tires with custom wheels, large driving lights, a winch and much more.
Complementing this silver, the most daring exterior style of the SUV is a 6-liter General Motors supercharged V8 engine instead of the six standard crossing of the Land Cruiser. Named LSA, the engine produces an estimated power of 560 horsepower and 580 pounds-feet of torque, which is sent to four wheels by means of an automatic transmission of four speeds of GM origin.
While the Land Cruiser's transfer box and axes are all stored, the SUV with four-wheel drive benefits from improved ARB blocking differences at both ends. The switches to operate the diffs are integrated into the panel that previously housed the interior clock, and now the time is maintained through the watch of the Pioneer audio system of the sales market. The configuration also includes the compatibility of Apple CarPlay, which later brings this SUV almost four years old in the modern era.
There are many more that make this Land Cruiser special, so watch the video to see it all by yourself. And who knows, maybe Joe Rogan will give us the opportunity to take to this beast one of these days. Is there any chance that someone can get in touch with their people?
