This may look like any other 40 Series Toyota Land Cruiser ute, but it is hiding a gigantic 10.4L Caterpillar diesel V8!

Built by Reaper Performance Diesel in West Australia this regular-sized monster truck rides on a 100 Series Land Cruiser chassis. But we can only imagine the work required to fit the ginormous #3208 Caterpillar 10.4-litre engine!

Formerly housed in a Ford Louisville water tanker, there is no word on how much power the 636ci turbo-diesel makes but it would make so much torque that really doesn't matter!
