Hornunga's 4x2 Hilux

Postby hornunga on Sun, 14 May 2017 3:18 +0000

Hey guys and gals, been a member on here for a few months now just doing a bit of reading about what others have done, thought it was time to introduce myself and my ride.I finally upgraded recently from a mitsubishi lancer wagon + ford falcon au ute and i have to say i couldnt be happier. Drove 10 hours each way to pick this up from bendigo with 12k on the clock :D

Since then i have removed the front nudge bar and roof racks, i purchased a set of small weather sheilds and the mrs bought me a set of foggies for xmas.

I then tried doing the opposite from most of the guys on here, i tried lowering the lux with blocks but pulled them back out in the same week, didnt like the ride comfort nor the drive shaft shudder from being misaligned.
These were a 2.5" drop (angled block) but with any kind of major bump or pothole it would bottom out on the bump stops, even after i took about and inch off them.

While playing around with idea of how else i could lower the ute back in January, i put a deposit on a set of work emotion T7R's 19x9.5 +38.
They finally arrived two weeks ago after a 3 month wait!

And no sooner as they arrived they were out the door again to go and get powder coated!

Picked them up friday, put some 255-50-19 rubber on them saturday and this is how she sits today. I dont really have any more plans for her apart from updating the stereo one day to include a reversing camera. And one day a wayyyysss down the track id like to get a hold of a trd v6 supercharger kit but we will see.

Looks great man. I have a 2wd exactly the same but with a diesel. Have any problems with the front wheels scrubing??

Thanks man. I didnt like the idea of a diesel as ive never worked on one before so i went the v6 option, danm hard to find though! Nah, i havent as of yet ive had it full lock once or twice so far but only on flat surfaces, no driveways etc.

I tried my best to try and match the standard rolling diameter of the 4x4 models tyres, im only like 1.6% under what they run so i shouldnt have any issues. The only issue i have is the speedo being out around 10% but ive purchased a yellow box to try and correct that as the jaycar kit MKIII didnt work for me :(

I'm trying to work out wheels for my Ute. Could you take a photo from the back and front of the car with the wheels straight to see how much they stick out at that size?

Update:
Finaly got around to getting a new headunit for the 200mm toyota size. With reverse camera, makes backing these things up so much easier. Also went back to blocks again, installed a set of 2” lowering blocks in the rear to level out the ride. Just makes it look that much better. I never really carry too much in the back so Ill eventually get around to getting my leafs reset professionally

Great looking ute! I love the stance it has now. And those wheels are a stand out! I reckon it would would sic painted Matt black. Definitely go for the supercharger option, it would be the best mod you could EVER do.
The more fuel I use, the more fun I have!
