98 Aussie Hilux Dualcab

Hey all, good site you have here. I have a aussie spec 98 Hilux SR5 with a few mods. Main mods are Lexus 1uz dual lockers, 35s blah blah blah.

Seems to be some great tech here so hope to learn a bit. The bar works not finished but its getting there.
The barwork is being done by Custom 4x4 he is the same guy that did Twistys 4 Runner.

good looking ride

Welcome to our forum and welcome aboard-thanks for the pictures.

Always good to see the unique styles to the down unders. Excellent body armor and I like that chop off at the rear.

Geez I didnt update this real well:doh:

Finished that barwork and wheeled it for a while, made a magazine feature as well which was pretty cool.

Then decided to go one step further. I used the Trail Gear sas kit with the classic rear kit and added a front airlocker along with a 30 spline set of Longfields.

I ran some big offset beadlocks for a bit with Krawlers but they were a pita to make work so I switched back to some KM2s instead.

I also had to sell off the old bar as it wouldnt fit after the sas so I made new one with the help of a good mate, we also modded the tray as after the sas it was too high so I removed the bodylift.

I have had it out wheeling but no pics yet and I have just recently broken something in the front so will pull it apart this week to see what I have busted.

Anyway thats a quick up to date maybe I should post on here more than just trolling :idea:

That's just so cool, that body style with 4 doors. So jealous of you Oz guys.

What's the frame to ground measurement? Yours appears so much more proportional compared to the SASs in the States, which appear way to tall.

Thanks for updating!

Went out with a group of people for an easy day of wheeling on a scenic track. It consists of around 14+ water crossings and ends up at a waterfall. After some recent rains in the areas the creeks were all at a good fun level.

Some pics.

Boof, AWESOME truck you have built! Probably my favorite Toyota pickup build. I have followed your progress on 4wdmonthly. Are you still doing the singlecab swap? Your build and Twisty's have been main inspiration for starting the UZ swap in my Tacoma. I have the engine and still collecting other parts. Thanks for sharing your build.
