  1. Hi everyone. My dad has a '05 hilux 3L TD D4-D White the first of the new shape, after spending a fair bit of money on redoing the injectors because they weren't coded right or something dad didn't explain it well. Seeing as I am going to help pay we have decided on a new exhaust then a bull bar reversing lights (small square flood lights), then a light bar on the bull bar. We are going for the colour coded ARB Alloy with the Warn Winch (not a full 4wder but do go on hunting trips). Not sure what LED Cree light bar. (any opinions would be great) We are unsure on what way to do the exhaust, I have done a little reading and some say to do a 3" dump then 2.75" for the rest of the exhaust because the 3" all the way is too big. Or would you suggest to do 2.75" all the way? Also whats the opinion the on chip my diesel or the dp chip if we did one? I have read bad results on them that's all. Would be grateful for any help and advice! Thanks
  2. Hi guys, I am new to this forum, but not new to 4WDing. Forgive me if this is in the wrong section, or there is a similar post already existing; I did do my research before hand :) I bought a 2.2 Liter Diesel 1981 Hilux (LN46) and I took it out in the mud the first day I got it. Soon after, all the dash lights came on and the alternator was no longer charging :( I have taken it out, got it tested at the autoelectrics and they quoted me $400 to refurbish it (apparently it was stuffed) or $450 for a new one. The truth is, I paid $1000 for the lux as a 'bash-around' so I am not willing to pay nearly half the price of the car after one 4WD trip. My question is: What other alternators will bolt straight into my engine bay, e.g. what other Toyota models? My alternator DOES have a oil/vacuum pump at the BACK of the alternator. I want to get away from this cheap, so I am looking around at wreckers, but I am not sure which models are interchangeable with mine. Thanks heaps!
  3. Hey guys got a few issues with our yn67. It's a recent purchase, goes all right but their are lots of vacuum hoses not connected or blocked off and a few parts are broken. Just need help connecting the vacuum hoses up to the correct pipe and help finding the parts which need replacing. Thanks.
  4. Hi Gang, I have a 1996 manual diesel Hilux, duel cab. I used to own a 1990 4runner (diesel, manual also) previously and find there is a dramatic power difference. Both have the same old 2.8L diesel non turbo engine. The Hilux is in top condition with 296,000kms and the 4Runner had nearly 450,000kms. the power difference between the two is quite dramatic! the older 4Runner with plenty more kms had a lot more power, particularly on hills. Other friends who have Hilux's with same engine but different years have the same sort of power as my old 4Runner. Does anyone have an idea as to why that may be???? I'm thinking it must be either a different gear or diff ratio in some models. The Hilux has one of their 4WD to 2WD gear sticks with the push button to change from 2 to 4. I'm not keen on it but an stuck with it. Not sure if that indicates a different gear box??? anyone anyone......?? Cheers
  5. Hi All, have gotten some handy info off this board already. Live in remote WA so it's been really useful for me. Have recently purchased an 01 Hilux, dualcab, 3L diesel. Happy with it for sure, but a bit of work to be done and living so far from civilisation means I'm doing it myself. First thing I'm tackling is a short. The 15A dome fuse blows after 2-3 seconds of popping in a new one. Unfortunately I've run out of fuses and have to wait for my box of 50 and multimeter to come with the postie which might be a while yet. Pulled off the dash panels to see if it was anything obvious and one thing has stuck out. The previous owner has installed an aftermarket stereo (aftermarket immobiliser and spotties too, but they're both working fine) and run a wire which I don't entirely understand. Basically they've crimped in a thickish wire (3-4mm), black outer with red inner, on to the blue-yellow at 1J - 12, just below the junction. This wire runs over to the stereo and has been soldered into a 3-way connection with the stereo's yellow 12v constant + blue/yellow from the wiring harness. I got my diagrams from hilux4x4.co.za/manual if anyone is interested. I'm not really sure what this is for, but they have also cut the wire and left it hanging so that the 3-way connection is still there, just the black with red is hanging loose. Have taped it off, it still popped a fuse though. Any idea what this wire is for? Should I remove it given it's just hanging? Suggestions on good place to look for the short? Cheers, Bowzzzer
  6. Hi everyone. I had an accident & rolled my 1995 Hilux LN106R dual cab, I was lucky enough to find a replacement cab section cheap enough but Iv been struggling to find a replacement tub for it. I keep seeing tubs from the newer model 1997-2003 SR style tubs for sale but not sure if it will fit? Welding new fixing bolts wouldn't be a problem but not sure if the rest is compatable like wheel arches, width & length. They look very similar besides slightly different arches. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks Mal
  7. Hey guys, I'm a new member here. I thought I'd join after I purchased a new 2013 SR5 Hilux from my local Toyota dealership. I'm looking to get opinions and thoughts after it was broken into after owning it for less than a month. I live in a quiet suburb in Sydney and bought from my local Toyota Dealership. For two weeks I was up and down from Brisbane so it lined up perfectly with my first service (serviced at the dealership). I got it serviced during the week and had it parked in the driveway each night since then. I woke up on Monday morning to go to work and found the back window smashed in with the center console (no scratches) placed on the seat with the Stereo removed. No wires were cut as this was an extremely professional job. I rang the Police and the Dealership immediately and while the Police were no help I found out there were 5 2013 Hilux's returned to the dealership (after servicing) with the same issue. I was told there was a 4-5 week wait and the Stereos were shipped in. Apparently this is happening Sydney-wide and I want to confirm that with other Hilux lovers first. While my garage sports my wifes' Toyota Corolla, I may have to start parking in there. Do you guys have any suggestions and/or experienced similar? Cheers, Mark.

  9. Hi all, new to the group, first post right here! used to have a 2WD 2001 Hilux, my faithful girl, I said goodbye to her on Sunday :( but said hello to my new and hopefully as faithful 4WD 2000 3lt Diesel hilux. she's a little rough, but I'm determined to fix bits and pieces by myself, well at least as much as I can.... Which is what brings me here, I've go no bloody idea! but I am a quick learner, and love to have a go! look forward to learning more, and learning to love my new 4x4 ;) Cheers!
  10. Hey everyone, I currently have a 2009 Single Cab 4.0L V6 Hilux, with a genuine toyota alloy tray and towbar. Right now the car is completely stock except for 31x10 Maxxis Bighorn Muddies. I am planning on a trip around alice springs, uluru area in Northern Territory roughly a year from now, and was just wondering on some suggestions for vehicle modifications and accesories I should look into before setting off. Budget is of no issue really, I just want products that will definitely do the job, and continue to do their job. Any suggestion is welcome. Thanks in advance
  11. Hi guys I've got my hand on a KUN26 rear 3.58 LSD diff. Im putting it in my hilux with a g series diff but have a bit of a problem The bolt patterns are different on the flanges G-series 60mm square, KUN26 one is 65mm square. And i cant swap out the yokes either as the bearings are different sizes. Basically does anyone know if the flanges on the diff head itself are interchangeable?? Don't really want to have to chop up the two drive shafts at this point
  12. I have a set of VU SS seats out of my old SS Ute, I was wondering if anyone has tried fitting them into a Hilux, and how many hairs you pulled out before you were successful.

  14. I'm selling a power steering kit for a ln65 hilux... I believe it fits both the 2L and 3L motors. It came as an extra but not fitted when I bought my truck but I am looking at an engine conversion anyway so it won't be needed. Offer a price and I'll let you know
  15. Hi hope someone can help. I recently brought a 93 dual cab hilux that had spent 12 months in a hay shed. Rats/mice had made nest in fan drum and after pulling it out cleaning it I thought that would of solved problem of it blowing bad smell in my face. On recycle it has but when ever I switch fan to fresh air there's bits of grass and paper coming to vents again. My question is, where is the fresh air vent on these hilux's and is there a filter there like the new ones that a second nest might be on. Any help would be most greatful Brad
  16. I just recently purchased a 2009 Toyota Hilux MY09 GGN25R 4WD V6 Petrol, its a cab chassis with a genuine Toyota tray and tow bar. It is completely stock and nothing has been touched and I was just looking for some ideas for modifications, I want to eventually start going out fishing, camping and general off road use, a little bit of 4WDing but nothing hardcore, just so I can access pretty much anywhere I want to spend the day. So if you guys have any ideas I would much appreciate your opinion and please let me know
  17. Hello, Strange question that I need help with please. I have a 2009 Toyota Hilux Dual Cab SR5, with a 2013 bin. I am now looking at a canopy and need to know if the canopy I am looking at will fit the 2013 bin. The canopy I am looking at is named as follows: Toyota Hilux 2005-2011 SR5 Genuine Toyota Canopy. Unfortunately, I cant try fitting it as it is too far away at the moment. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks, Greg
  18. G'day all, I have an '83 RN41 2wd Hilux. I also have a Commodore V6 and Toyota five speed box with bell housing and mount kit. The original diff centre is probably close to 3:1. With the V6 I reckon I'll need about 4:1. Where can I source a diff centre that will fit? Would like to check out the wreckers but the first thing they will ask is what model car it's off. Does anyone know where I can find a list of compatible vehicles or even of a diff specialist that can help? Any info would be appreciated, thanks for reading.
  19. Hi there, The turbo in my hilux makes a loud clicking noise when the ignition is switched 'on'. It's not noticeable once the engine has been started. I was wondering if anybody else has encountered this issue, and if its something that needs to be fixed? Besides this, the car runs perfectly! My thoughts on initial inspection are that there could be an intermittent signal coming from one of the exhaust sensors maybe? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
  20. Hey guys, recently bought a '99 xtracab and want to do a front end conversion to a Surf grille and headlights. Will a '99 model grill fit? Or are any other year models interchangeable such as a '95, maybe with some modification?

  24. what do yous think?
  25. I just wanted to get people's opinions on good canopies, brands and models, as well as good vendors in Sydney area. I have a 2009 dual-cab Hilux SR5 4l V6 petrol 4x2. Some important considerations for me are: - security. What windows are the most secure? If I get solid walls will that adversely affect visibility while driving? Which doors/locks are most secure? Is fibreglass easy to pop off at all? Does anyone have an alarm system with their canopy, and can it be integrated into an alarm system for the ute as a whole? Has anyone had anything stolen out of a canopy and how did they get in? - size. I want to maximise space in the canopy. However do the raised canopies (that don't sit flush with the roof but go up a bit) affect drag and fuel consumption much? - weight. Fibreglass vs steel - pros & cons of each? What's the weight of a steel canopy vs the fibreglass? The steel ones I'm think of are these ones: http://smmcanopies.com.au/ Anything else I haven't thought of?
