Firstly i would like to say hi to everyone. I currently have a Hilux SR5 2010. I am looking at getting into the 4wd scene.
Plans are to include a lift kit?? Bars front,rear & sides. winch, new rims & tyres 31"-32" Rooftop Tent etc. I have owned the vehicle since new & it is totally stock & i am new to the scene, so i am looking forward to the adventure.
The SR5 is my everyday transport so all mods will need to be suitable, however i also want to be able to have no concerns
when out & about. All advice is appreciated.

Welcome to the forum Nate, plenty of info available for you on here. Plenty of great local lads as well.

Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

Hey Guys,
Thanks for the reply.
I have came across the caloffroad 3" lift. Has anyone had any experience with this kit or can recommend another.
I was going to use ultimate but they only offer 2"??? unless going to the 4" engineered kit.
Also can anyone recommend a workshop with a good history for their work in the south west of sydney.

Any advice appreciated,
Hilux went in for the 300000k service on Monday. Got her back with new front drive shafts as a boot had been split since last service. Driving home & thought I would give her a Run in H4. Forgot to return to H2 then drove to work today only realising on the way home. The dash stick figure 4x4 mode light flashed a couple of times & now won't show when selecting H4.
Drove around 120ks up to 100kph on sealed roads. A few tight turns.
Where is the 4X4 sensor on the box.
