79 Series Build - Rooftop Tent and Awnings. Well when it comes to the camping side of the build you can't go past the speed of setup and pack down of our clamshell range of tents. The AX27 roof top tent was the pick of the bunch offering a huge amount of internal space and the ability to use our easy slots tent extrusions for mounting the awnings to the side of the tent it was a simple choice.
We decided to fit the 270 XT Max awning to the LH side of the vehicle, being the main awning it will open around the rear providing coverage over the work surface on the tailgate. For those extra hot days on the beach or when having a few people around the camp it was decided to fit an additional 180 XT Max on the RH side providing massive shade all around the vehicle.
Now entry into the tent is still possible from the rear when the 270 XT Max is closed, or if open one can simply lean the ladder onto the side of the 180 XT Max secondary Awning for side entry into the tent.
So much “Yes!” 🙌🏻 in one photo. @getuppa79 rocking his 79 land cruiser in merlot red. Running a black series clamshell tent. Stunning photo and great looking rig bud 🍻💪🏻 keep on living the dream ! #thebushcompany #79series #landcruiser #rooftoptentliving #4wd...
Isuzu D-Max - DX27 rooftop Tent, XT Awning. The touring set up on this ISUZU D-Max has been really well thought through to meet the owners specific requirements. The Norweld canopy provides a fantastic platform for a full kitchen and still leave plenty of room for the auxiliary battery system and additional storage.
We installed the awesome DX27 Clamshell Rooftop Tent along with our 270 XT Awning to really finish off what is truly a great camping and touring rig...
79 Series Build - Styleside Tub & Canopy. The original plan for this build was to go with a Norweld Australia flat tray due to their build quality and overall strength and then to build a custom canopy from scratch. But as is often the case, plans change and new ideas come into play, and in this case I decided to go with a full stylised Toyota factory tub and to put one of the awesome Rhino Cab Extreme Aluminium Canopies onto the tub.
The tub itself is something that we import for our customers direct from South Africa, so it was simply a matter of getting it colour coded to match the sandy taupe of the cab. For the Rhino cab canopy I chose to go with a solid aluminium rear door, partly for security, but also because I know that when finished with the interior build of the canopy I won't be able to see through the rear anyway. We had the styleside tub fully rubber lined before it was colour coded, and the flares were also colour coded to match the vehicle.
Now we can really get stuck into the touring and camping set up.
79 Series Build - Safari Performance Upgrade. After doing a heap of research into possible tuning options, the choice was pretty clear.
The @safari4x4engineering ARMAX Performance ECU is designed to work seamlessly with the factory Engine Control Unit resulting in more power, more torque, better throttle response, less fuel consumption and less turbo lag. This is all backed up by Safari’s sophisticated engine protection systems which are constantly live monitoring the vehicle for total drivetrain safety and ultimate reliability. The ARMAX ECU has 5 pre-calibrated maps for all user conditions and a plug and play wiring harness and vehicle specific mounting bracketry that made installation quick and easy.
In addition to the SAFRAI ECU upgrade, we went with the 4inch SAFARI ARMAX Snorkel and a @fatzfabrication HDJ 75/79 series airbox as a high flow alternative for the Factory airbox. The box has 4” inlet and outlets, with a 9” pod filter in either an 8 Layer paper element. To finish the job we installed a @legendex 4” inch stainless steel DPG backed exhaust to keep it all legal.
Ultimate touring vehicle 👍🏻, alpha tent and 270 xt max awning 👍🏻 , boat in tow 👍🏻. We Just love this setup 💪🏻🍻. Follow @theexplorelife on YouTube as Matt makes us all long for the outdoors during his travels around Australia. #thebushcompany #explore #rooftoptent #79series...
Dodge RAM 2500 - Custom Canopy - 270 XT MAX Awning Install. Stunning looking Dodge RAM 2500 with a great looking @gcitraytec lift off style canopy. This is a well kitted out rig with @@kingssuspension and @airbagmansuspension in the rear, and the interipor of the canopy is really well set up.
We installed our 270 XT MAX awning onto the canopy to provide a massive 12sqm shade area without any interference with the large gull wing doors on the canopy.
76 Series Landcruiser Touring Rig - ALPHA Tent and 270 Xt Awning. The 76 Series Landcruiser is such a great off-road tourer, mid-wheel base with solid front axle. This one has already had some great upgrades including OME BP51 remote reservoir suspension with a 2 inch lift, the Safari Armax Snorkel and a Patrol Doctor Airbox, as well as a Wholesale Automatics auto upgrade. The inside has been stripped out to make the vehicle perfect for two people touring and providing great space for storage in the rear.
With the addition of or ALPHA rooftop tent and the fantastic 270 XT Awning this rig is certainly set up for a long distance go anywhere lifestyle.
