The new 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser fills a gap in the Toyota SUV market. It does this without taking over the Sequoia’s or 4Runner’s positions. The new Land Cruiser 250 is smaller than the previous version. Still it retains much of the upscale qualities and off-road abilities that make it a Land Cruiser. As an off-road SUV, aftermarket companies need to offer some great ways to upgrade this SUV.

Great names, but not the Toyota classics

When we think of Toyota off-roading, TRD and ARB are the first names to come to mind. Parts and features from these two names are part of the off-road-focused 2025 Toyota 4Runner. This follows the historical path of leaving the Land Cruiser off the TRD list. Still, several impressive off-road upgrades are available for the new Land Cruiser. Some of these parts come from JAOS, Toy-Factory, and Modellista.

JAOS offers an excellent bumper integration

The new JAOS front bumper guard, made for the Toyota Land Cruiser, looks like it should come right from the factory. This bumper guard replaces the center section and outriggers while integrating a thicker front skid plate and tough-looking exposed fasteners.

Additional JAOS items include a set of 18-inch wheels, which look much different from the OEM wheels, and a set of mud flaps with the brand’s signature look.

Your Land Cruiser can be your home away from home

One of the most significant aspects of overlanding is turning your vehicle into a place to sleep at night. If your SUV can be a comfortable place to sleep, you don’t have to look for a tent location or put your roof-top tent on the top of the vehicle.

The team at Toy-Factory created a kit that turns everything behind the front seats of the Land Cruiser into a padded bed surface. This could be the start of turning your Toyota SUV into your overlanding vehicle.

Tack on some extras from Modellista

Adding Modellista to this list might be cheating because it’s part of the Toyota family. In fact, it’s from the Toyota Customizing and Development division, which includes TRD. This brand created some impressive aesthetic items that can be applied over the factory items to give the Toyota Land Cruiser an upgraded look. Modellista also offers a set of 20-inch alloy wheels with twisted spokes, which look incredible.

Adding a few items to your new 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser makes it more comfortable on the trails, capable in rugged settings, and alters the appearance to give your Toyota SUV a special look.
