Off road icon gets more Bendix braking options

Already highly visible travelling remote outback tracks, on rural roads and –dare we say – school carparks at pick-up, the popular Toyota LandCruiser in 300 Series guise has been a focus for Bendix in recent months, with several braking upgrades launched for the model in 2023.

This month, Bendix has continued its range rollout for the 300 Series, with the release of several Ultimate 4WD™ Brake Upgrade Kits, to give extra braking performance for the ‘Cruiser’, which tips the scales at a kerb weight of around 2,600kg.

Bendix’s Ultimate 4WD™ Brake Upgrade Kits offer all the components a LandCruiser owner might want to upgrade the braking performance of their 300 Series, all in the convenience and efficiency of a kit.

For LandCruiser 300 Series, front kit variants are available to suit vehicles with either 17 or 18” rims in both standard ride height, and for cars with a 2” suspension lift.

The front kits include two Ultimate 4WD™ Brake Rotors, a set of Ultimate 4WD™ Brake Pads, a vehicle set of Ultimate Brake Hoses, a litre of heavy-duty brake fluid, a can of Bendix Cleanup, a tube of Ceramasil Lubricant, Bendix rotor wipes, with all contents packaged in a tough 60 litre Bendix Icebox.

A rear kit is also available for the LandCruiser 300 Series to suit both 17 and 18” rims. Rear kit content is similar to the front kit and includes two Ultimate 4WD™ Brake Rotors, a set of Ultimate 4WD™ Brake Pads, Bendix Cleanup, Bendix rotor wipes, Bendix stubby holder and 46 litre Bendix Icebox.

Availability of Bendix Ultimate 4WD™ Brake Upgrade Kits have also increased to now cover the latest 2023 model PY Ford Ranger (XL and XLS models only), with front kit options to suit both standard ride height and cars equipped with a 2” lift. Kit inclusions are the same as for the Toyota LandCruiser.
