Hi from over the ditch

Hi from over the ditch

Gidday,

Just thought I'd say hi, been quietly pesting around this forum drawing inspiration and getting a few ideas as I just took delivery of my 2018 SR5 DC 4x4 Manual in Graphite.

It's my 3rd Hilux(first brand new one) my first being a LN61 Surf the second a KZN165 SR5 with a few mods which served my well for many years and now the N80 has it taken its place.

Here are couple of pics

My old LN61 & the KZN165

The KNZ165 before I sold it - had it for 6 years

The new one

The LN had a few simple mods, lift, winch, rear locker etc & the KNZ had pretty much the same but a few more external accessories for camping / touring etc.

Plans for the new one are more build more of a touring / camping rig & not get carried away(yeah right...) So far I have the factory snorkel, hard lid etc. Will create a build thread in coming weeks.

Cheers
Jordon

No worries, its a "UTE MASTER" load lid, made here in NZ http://www.utemaster.co.nz/our-products ... /standard/

Very easy to install, took two of us 30mins or so. Will take a few more pics for you over the next couple of days.

Cheers
