Hi guys,

I need some help. I have a LC 1995 KJZ77. I want to face lift it to the new Land Cruiser 70.

Is it possible?? Does it need any fabrication or a bolt on fit?

Ill be grateful for urgent reply as I am going to order the stuff in a day or two.

I am attaching picture of my 1995 LC 70 series and the new one.

Thank you

The panels pretty much bolt straight up to a HD landcruiser, you would have to do the mods that crushers did to his light duty chassis to make it the same as a heavy duty landcruiser chassis at the front. IMO it would be alot of work.

Thank you for the reply. I am mentioning 76 wagon here, not the pickup series. Isnt the length of the 76 and old 77 same???

A current model 76 series with that front is a heavy duty landcruiser, same as a 79 series ute up front. Your photo shows a light duty landcruiser KJZ77, if you had a heavy duty 77 series ie HZJ77 the length would be the same. I had photos where someone has transplanted the new model front onto a early 79 series.

And after you extend the two front chassis body mounts forward to match the extra length of the heavy duty front end you can the widen those mounts out 50mm each side. To suit the extra width that the chassis on the latest front has
