G'day from Tas

Postby DenSos on Sun, 27 Oct 2019 5:21 +0000

G'day guys,

I have just got my hands on a nice 2017 Hilux SR5 in arctic white (wish I got the blue) after owning a 98 105 Cruiser with a bit of lift, winch etc and before that a GQ Patrol with all the fruit and more.

I'm completely new to this type of 4WD and will be annoying you all with countless questions no doubt!

First question I have to ask is am I limited to with what winch I can fit into the factory alloy winch bar?

The rest of the questions will come in time haha!

Once I sell the Cruiser I will be throwing in the lift, tyres, everything else, can't wait for that to happen!!

Cheers,

Dion

G'day Dion and welcome to the forum :D

The new rig looks very tidy.
No worries about asking questions - just have a read about finding existing relevant threads to ask your question on below :)

I just did a quick search for Gen 8 ally bars + winch and didnt find anything.
If your bar is winch compatible it will fit most winches - I think Toyota uses a warn 9.5 - might need to check that but if so most 9.5 winches should fit. One of our members will be able to pitch in

haha thanks Wildthing, my place is surrounded by long grass, hopefully I don't burn the house down haha!

Cheers DeadlyBeast, it was love at first sight when I got the call from the dealership! Can't wait to get it all bashed up and scratched haha.

Cheers,

Dion

Haaha I know the feeling... oh bugger, I sound like the bloody add :lol:

Is that stripe along the bottom doors a decal or a rub strip?
