If you want to modify your brand new Toyota Land Cruiser but are not a fan of the NFS Underground-style bodykits offered by the likes of Modellista, Liberty Walk, Wald, and M’z speed, then Japanese tuner Jaos has you covered. The brand behind the factory-backed Lexus LX 600 “Offroad” Jaos concept is already offering a tuning kit for the Land Cruiser Series 300 making it more capable off the beaten track.
Unlike other tuners, Jaos’ accessories look like something that could come out from a Toyota factory, harmoniously blending with the Land Cruiser’s design language. Visual modifications include a front bumper guard extension, carbon-look fender add-ons, door handle protectors, a roof rack with integrated lights, and black stickers for the side sills and the lower part of the rear bumper, as well as a Battlez Muffler ZS-2 exhaust with dual tailpipes.
Moreover, the Land Cruiser Jaos Style benefits from a new set of 20-inch Jaos Tribe Cross wheels finished in Matt Gun Metallic shod in 285/55 Toyo Open Country R tires for extra grip in off-road driving. Finally, Jaos has upgraded the stock suspension with Battlez Ti-W coil springs, increasing the stock model’s 235 mm (9.25 inches) ground clearance by a further 40 mm (1.57 inches).
There are no changes under the bonnet which means you can choose between the stock twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 petrol producing 409 hp (305 kW / 415 PS) or the twin-turbo 3.3-liter V6 diesel producing 304 hp (227 kW / 309 PS). All variants of the Land Cruiser Series 300 are fitted with a 10-speed automatic gearbox transmitting power to all four wheels.
Currently, Jaos’ official website only has a few of the aforementioned parts available for sale, including the 20-inch wheels listed for ¥81,400 ($703), but we expect all of them to be offered in the near future. Other tuners offering off-road accessories for the Land Cruiser include Arctic Trucks from Iceland and TJM from Australia.
