Toyota Hi-lux Extra cab SR5, 08/2008

Good Points
Car like feel on road.
Capable off-road (with a min 2" lift)
Vast array of aftermarket accessories for the luxs.

Bad Points
I.F.S. worst point, but everythings a compromise these days.
Rear vision with the canopy on.
Rear drum brakes (?) are dodgy...even from new. (This is 2008 isn't it?)

What mods have you done?
Ironman front bar & 12000 winch. Airtec snorkel. VMS media system with rear view camera. Goodyear MTRs on 31x10.5x15 Allied wheels. Kaymar rear bar with swing away wheel carrier. Rhino spray on lining. Colour coded 'Caddy' canopy.

What mods are on the list to do?
Dual battery system (Have the parts just need to fit it) Rear drawers. 2" lift.

Why did you buy this vehicle?
Had a 2005 model (current shape) Hi-lux and loved it, was so impressed I bought another one.

How often do you go offroad?
Not often enough

What will your next vehicle be?
At this point in idea
