Bad Points
temperamental electrics. ie. speedo throwing wobblies, rear window opening only when it decides to ! IFS ( its ok but could be better)

What mods have you done?
3 inch suspension lift. front lockrite locker. 31 inch simex centipede MT. extra interior power sockets for fridge etc. UHF radio. doubled up on recovery hooks ( its a surf... i need em !!!) swaybars cut off and filed in the garbage bin.

What mods are on the list to do?
body lift. rear locker. snorkel. k & n filter. bigger rubber.

Why did you buy this vehicle?
wanted a hilux dual cab but liked the extras in the surf. praps im getting old but i like the electric sunroof, windows and mirrors but i agree more to go wrong if the electrics get soggy !

about once a month

What will your next vehicle be?
not sure when budget will allow
