... you get the idea!

I'll upgrade the tyres when the OEM wear out.

Have looked at, and am still considering, the 'rear seat mod', but just not sure I gain enough space to warrant it vs risk of potential rattles. I'd also hate to have it fail in an accident with my daughter in the back seat. I wouldn't be able to live with myself.

Currently looking at, considering, a Titan Drawer System with wings for the Tray. See thread here:

And, I'll probably be added more sand to the cabin, although ATM I'm still in 'new car' mode and it's been getting vacuumed almost daily! (◔_◔)



Other info:


I've moved to the Hilux from a MN Triton (Manual, GLX) which I've had for the last 9 years. I had the 2010 MN and then an 2015 MN. Both where with OEM Alloy Wheels, Nudge Bar, Soft Tonneau, Towbar and ProRack Roof Racks.
