Hello from Perth!

Hey guys,

New Hilux owner here having just traded in the 2013 Ford Ranger PX1 with 280K to a 2018 Toyota Hilux SR5 with 65K.

Such a smooth ride, feels so much tighter than the ranger. No sluggish acceleration, no weird noises, no transmission bumps/leaks and what feels like an instant increase in trust of my vehicle.

My Hilux comes with a full Toyota service history, as well as an ARB colour coded canopy (Silver Sky) and an ARB black bull bar.

I'm very much looking forward to getting her set up with the dual battery, draws and roof racks to get her how my Ranger was - fully set up for camping off grid. The first thing I've noticed is there is space under to hood for the second battery. Win!
