My every day driver with some mods.

Under the seat mods.

Engine - V6 VP Commodore with 4lb blower fitted (aftermarket)

Injection - 50/50 water/Metho (cold air induction)

Gearbox - 4SP VP Commodore

Diff - original Toyota rolled to suite

Wheels Front California 8x15 - 205x65x15 Bridgestone

Wheels Rear California - 10x15 - 265x70x15 Hankook

Exhaust - dual 2" from cat to twin stacks behind cab

Brakes - Hi-lux Front disc, Rear original truck drums

Suspension - Front reset coils lowered 4"

Rear original 2 ton leaf springs lowered 7"

Interior (not finished) full set Pro-Comp Gauges,carpet,sunroof

This is used as my normal daily car

And it's all legal I have the engineering certificate.

best part about it being classed as a truck is a lot of car regulations don't apply.

Cornering. in the dry she's not to bad, the suspension is so tight. in the wet is a different thing she just wants to slide everywhere.

Down the 1/4. not the best there best run was 16.9 @ 125.4kl's. biggest problem was trying to get the rear wheels to grip, all they wanted to do was spin most of the way down.

Main thing is I have fun in it.

LOL. :lol: Thanks.

A: true untill it rains.

B: unless they weigh 1 ton or more not much to gain,she'll do this with a ton on the back over the axle.

not wrong there, it turns heads every where & gets comments.

when I first started it, it was only to give the old girl a bit more power. then I thought ok it gets along pretty good why not give her a bit of a face lift to.

then after a lot of pressure I entered it in the 2004 Liverpool Nationals, and got 2nd place in the 'Top Ute/Pick Ups' section.

so Thanks again.
