Launched in 2023, PROJECT 300 follows the touring build of a Toyota LandCruiser 300-series.
The site includes content covering accessories, modifications and, eventually, servicing and maintenance supplies. PROJECT 300 is written and filmed by me, Jamie Benaud from Australian Images Photography. It follows on from Project200, which documented the touring build of my 2012 LandCruiser 200-series.
I've always been interested in 4WDing, camping and touring around this beautiful country, and have been doing so for over 30 years.
I bought my first 4WD -a Suzuki Sierra- at the age of 17, and since then have owned two Nissan Patrols followed by three Toyota Land Cruisers, all heavily modified to improve their durability, performance and off road capability. I have also fabricated trailers, including a complete offroad camper trailer, which you can find at diycamper.com.au.
I've always preferred to fit and sometimes fabricate my own accessories, and have learned over time what works and what doesn't for my needs.

Promotional Content Disclosure
Undeclared promotion is rife in the 4WD "influencer" industry. Project300 is different. In the interests of full transparency, every page on Project300 will contain a full disclosure of what benefits (if any) were received in the process of choosing and installing the respective product(s). I encourage the entire industry to follow this example.
I plan on owning and driving Project300 LandCruiser for at least a decade. I will only ever choose and install products which I believe to be of the highest quality, and which will serve me reliably throughout the life of the vehicle.
I have never and will never accept monetary payment to select any product.
