Check out how the process works, and schedule a design consultation for more info or to get a build started. Our trucks are hand-made and built in small batches annually. We don't over-produce, to make sure that quality of each build is kept to the highest standards.
Extreme care is taken in each step of the process, from selecting your donor vehicle to crafting it, and testing/selecting each component that goes into your build. You're working directly with the owner of the company, Austin Peterson, who comes from a family of mechanics, carpenters, and restoration shop owners. Craftsmanship is in our blood, and you can guarantee we're damn good at it!
Our passion, dedication, and decades of experience are poured into each Black Dog. The result is a truly capable Land Cruiser, built for 21st century driving conditions that you'll cherish for years to come. No Land Cruiser required, we supply the donor vehicle.
The first truck I sold was less than $50,000. Over the years we found customers weren't happy with the limitations of the original Land Cruiser, and our Daily Driver model began to take shape. Brand new components, upgraded engine/transmission, and many other evolutions resulted in a much better product that was exponentially more expensive to build. Like anything high quality these aren't cheap. Prices start at well over $100,000 depending on the model and amount of customization. This puts our vehicles out of reach for most, but we don't like compromise. If you feel the same let us know and click below for more info on pricing. These machines are one of a kind, tell your Black Dog story today. Schedule a design consult with the owner himself and we'll work with you to build the truck of your dreams.
Black Dog builds are the industry standard for quality and are truly without compromise. That is the promise we make to our customers, and it's a promise that we back with the industries only 100% Quality Guarantee.
If you receive your truck, and there is an issue with it we will work with you to make it right or provide you with a full refund. We are that confident in our work, and the only brand to stand behind it 100%. Check your contract.
