Just thought I'd start this thread seeing as there's not a soul who has mentioned the mighty hilux!!!

What's everyone think of the new one? I think it looks sweet..

Anyways where are the hilux owners at? I mean come on people u see them dumped on the ground dragging their asses on big chromes all over the place...

Have something to contribute?

I think the new shape looks good in 4WD but not so good in 2WD, the front overhang is very long and looks a bit weird when it's closer to the ground, But lift it up and put a set of 36's under those wheel arches and it looks tonka tough!

Used have a 2.0 litre (18R engine) 'lux - that would go side ways in the wet too, but struggled on the slightest grade!

Try the 4.0 V6, or the new TD (if you tow). That'll make ya rethink the 2.7L performance.

We got our SR5 diesel a couple of months ago. Lucked in and our car was delivered with the engine and spec upgrade that happened around Sept 06 (a little more power, and some more 'bits and pieces').

I hadn't realised though, that a Hilux is more of a kit car than the usual factory offerings. As soon as we took delivery,we started changing things. Seats were the first.....

Since then, we've had a second battery installed. Hella spotlights. It's going in today for installation of a combined navigation and sound system, as well as UHF CB. Long range fuel tank next week. Canopy in a couple of months. And then it will be off for a drive to northwest oz.

looks good jb747!
i wouldnt mind doing a seat change in mine, but kinda like the bench thats in the manual. i guess i could change the drivers and get the bench re-trimed.
