Jeff,
Just to let you know that the TVan axles come in at least 3 different lengths to suit different wheel offsets - this has nothing to do with whether they are 5 stud or 6 stud. 
So for a 79series or a 105 series (zero offset wheels) you would normally have the 5 stud Landcruiser hubs on a 130mm Tvan axle.
For a 100/200series (IFS) (which come with P60mm offset wheels) you would have the same 5 stud Landcruiser hubs on a 190mm Tvan axle.
For a Prado/Dmax/Ranger etc etc (pos 30mm wheels)   you would need the 160mm axles.

So first thing you need to do is measure the axle length as per the diagram.
If you have 130mm axles, then all you need to do is change the drums to 5 stud for your 79series.  If doing that, it is also a good idea to fit new backing plates so you start with fresh brake shoes and magnets.  I suggest this because 79series brakes are not great (I've had both 79 and 78 series Landcruisers) and must have good brakes on the Tvan.

Do not under any circumstances change to 100/200 series IFS arms as they will be way too long for your 79 series rims.

For Sale or Wanted / For sale - 2017 TVAN Firetail - High roof

Hi All,

I have a 2017, 18th anniversary edition 'Firetail' TVAN I'm considering selling to upgrade.

This model sat between the Tanami and Canning at the time. The limited edition Firetail included:
- Premium kitchen
- 120W solar panel
- Battery management display upgrade
- Front boot / drawbar storage
- High roof (same as what's now standard in the Mark 5)
- Interior side and roof pocket storage
- 108L water tank

The following options were also added:
- 2nd 105Ah AGM battery
- 40A Redarc DC-DC charger upgrade
- Additional 12v fan
- Under mattress liner
- Rear insect screen
- Canvas tropical roof
- Stone Stomper stone guard

This TVAN has Tracks's standard 130mm MC2 suspension with zero offset 6 stud wheels.

I've travelled at most 7,000km's and most of that has been on bitumen. Asking $54,000 with the balance of Queensland Registration (exp 03/21) and RWC.

Don't hesitate to call or email if you have any questions or want more photos. I'm also happy to do a Skype or Facetime call to show you TVAN.

Not much difference in offset between Patrol and 79 series so might only need to replace the drums with 5 stud  and keep your arms.
That's all I did for mine.  What is your axle length? 130mm is probably ideal.

Thanks Phil, will sus this out.

Jacko, The 1800kg suspension upgrade has 12" brakes.  AFAIK, everything else has 10".

Yeah that's what I thought but when I rang Track they would only increase my Mk2 form 1250 kg to 1500 Kg and said 12" brakes were part of the kit .
 
The bloke I was talking to was asking questions to someone else in the background , maybe he got confused .

Regards Jacko .
