The crew at ARB are well known for kitting out, upgrading and completely rebuilding factory standard vehicles, and they have a new pet project — Max!

Max is a ‘79 cruiser that has been fitted out with all the bells and whistles, and it may not have the kitchen sink, but you are able to make a good cappuccino!

Gary Ford from ARB Springfield has been the man overseeing the transformation of Max from a base model into a beast! He has spent weeks slowly adding snorkel upgrades, fridges, microwaves, solar panels, extra batteries, and the list goes on!

On the underside, Max has had a Jmax axle widening and replacement diff housing, so the rear tyres sit the same distance apart as the front. There’s also been a 180L fuel tank added, 2 extra water tanks, extra suspension, and the list goes on and on.
