Welcome to Shannons Engineering & Design

LC79 Landcruiser

Welcome to the LC79 Dual Cab Cruiser page.                     Updated April 2019

After continuous inquiries regarding our dual cab Landcruiser builds we have set up this page dedicated to the LC79.

For those who want their very own Shannons Engineeing built 79 series Landcruiser you now have an option to either purchase vehicle from us brand new including  a tray and canopy and a whole range of your chosen accessories or fit to your existing ride anywhere in Australia.

We have developed our own style and design which utilizes every inch of room available under the tray and packed as many features as possible for the tourer, tradie, farmer and family.  We use steel RHS for the chassis rails and perimeter frame and the rest is aluminium giving our trays strength and load carrying capacity where needed and remain light enough so you can carry more gear.

Buying the vehicle through us gives us the ability to fit our trays by our qualified staff and give you the care and attention to detail you can expect. All work is done pre-rego and the vehicle is road freighted so there’s no k’s on the clock and the GVM upgrade will be noted on you registration saving you the hassle of getting it engineered later on.

For interstate buyers, the news is good. We do all this without you leaving the house. We’ll bring the vehicle to you ready to rumble, just send your inquiry to [email protected] and someone will be in touch.

For pre-owned Landcruiser owners, scroll to the bottom of the page for our separate tray and canopy prices for the LC79.

The fine print:

You vehicle will be supplied by our contact at Toyota. Price includes all pre-delivery & on-road costs. Lease, loan or cash payment details to be finalized before work commences.  Due to the fact the vehicle needs to be road legal, we cannot fit turbo-back exhausts, darker than legal window tint, massive lift kits and the like.

Lead Times.

As you have already gathered, our trays are made to order. We don’t have them sitting around nor are they mass produced. To design and manufacture your tray from scratch takes around 3 months depending on work load and the optional accessories you choose. Each build is custom made to suit your needs and the attention to detail will be as impeccable as the next build. We hope you understand this all takes time and we appreciate your patience.


Finance available through Toyota Finance Department for the whole amount or part payment to approved applicants. Standard loan terms apply.

Cash, EFT and Credit Card also accepted. Credit card surcharges apply.
