How Wes Siler Built the Ultimate Land Cruiser

Starting with the most legendarily capable SUV on the planet—a brand-new Toyota Land Cruiser—Wes Siler applied everything he’s learned about trucks over the two decades he’s been writing about them to build his wife, Virginia, the safest, most comfortable, most confidence-inspiring 4×4 possible. This is the end result: something that’s as comfortable and stable on the highway as a Range Rover yet surpasses the off-road capabilities of a Jeep Wrangler. And all of this comes in a package that remains quiet and convenient during daily use. Is there a better truck out there? We haven’t seen one.
