At Norweld we take immense pride in showcasing the extraordinary off-road capabilities of our builds, and we’re thrilled to feature our incredible owners with whom we support to put them together.  @fruityluxia Lachlan’s 2023 N80 Toyota SR5 Hilux is a testament to adventure, this robust vehicle is designed to tackle the most challenging terrains, from the snow-capped mountains of the Victorian High Country to the rugged landscapes of Outback South Australia and the scenic beaches of New South Wales. With just four months on the road, it’s already a beacon of exploration and off-grid prowess.

Meet: lachlan @FRUITYLUXIA

Lachlan, currently residing in Sydney, NSW, is gearing up for a move to Darwin, NT, in December 2023. When not deployed at sea with the Navy, he dedicates a substantial part of his time to traversing the road.

Optimising weekend getaways and longer journeys, his well-equipped rig is prepared to confront any off-grid adventure. From the snow-dusted peaks of Victoria’s High Country to the arid Outback of South Australia and the pristine beaches of New South Wales, this Hilux conquers it all with ease and is eager to explore the Northern Territory!

After years of meticulous research and admiration for Australia’s diverse range of rigs, Lachlan’s build came together seamlessly. He is thrilled with the results! Even though it’s been only four months since hitting the road, it has experienced and conquered quite a bit.

The vehicle was put together by the teams in Adelaide including Adelaide Hills Toyota, the accessories and modifications through Jacksons 4×4 Accessories (@jacksons4x4) in Murray Bridge and Norweld in Bowden
