Today we are checking out the Multi Drive Technology Tru Tracker which is a “Rear Track Correction System” for the V8 70 Series Toyota Landcruiser four wheel drive vehicle.
Design Objectives & History
In 2007 Toyota introduced the V8 diesel engine into its 70 Series model range in Australia.
To accommodate the larger engine, the engine bay was widened and front track width was increased, while the rear remained unchanged.
The result is an OEM track width difference of 95mm.
The narrower track at the rear causes the vehicle to sway unpredictably when travelling on soft surfaces.
This also occurs when the vehicle encounters dry wheel ruts or edged surface changes on sealed roads.
Instability issues are also present when towing or with heavily loaded vehicles with a high centre of gravity.
This presents as a significant safety concern as the vehicle can become unstable and difficult to control under these conditions.
The solution is to fit the MDT Tru Tracker which is a complete rear track width correction system.
The components relocate the entire wheel hub assembly to the correct location and equalise the track widths.
Features & Benefits
- Improved dynamic stability and handling on sealed and well-formed roads
- Significantly improved tracking, driver control and handling in loose / deformable soils such as mud, gravel or sand
- Improved stability when towing
- Improved responsiveness
- Improved rollover resistance
- Complete Rear Axle Width Correction
- Improved Off-Road Safety
- Increased Fuel Economy
- Utilises existing Diff Housing
Easy to install… the Tru Tracker finally allows you to enjoy the benefits of putting the rear wheels where they should be!
Installation is super easy and completed on the vehicle with minimal modifications required utilising many of the existing OEM components.

All components are manufactured from high grade materials and thoroughly tested to ensure the strength and reliability of the rear axle assembly is retained.
Each component has undergone Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and has full Engineering Approval.
Toyota warranty is matched on all Tru Tracker components, with the system being available for fitment at the Superior Engineering workshop.
The result of fitting the Tru Tracker system is improved dynamic stability and handling on sealed and well-formed roads.
Significantly improved tracking, driver control and handling in loose and deformable soils such as mud, gravel or sand.
Improved stability when towing, improved responsiveness and improved rollover resistance.
The safety improvement is dramatic and will give any Landcruiser owner a renewed sense of confidence in their vehicle.
