So, I've been thinking I should get this ball rolling for a while. I've pretty much been using the "What did you do to your Hilux today?" as a super slow build thread, and I have a few things planned for later this year that should probably be in their own thread.
I bought my 2010 SR mid 2014. It was previously owned by my mechanics son, who had injured his back and could no longer drive a manual.
This is how I picked it up..
ARB Deluxe Winch Bar
ARB Rear Bar
ARB Bash Plates
Warn Winch (9500lb?)
Mickey Thompson ATZ 265/70/16
And chucked in an Alpine head unit, reversing camera and rear speakers before I picked it up.
It's my first 4x4, so went a did a 2 day driving course........aaaaaand I got hooked. In my intro I laid out a list of things I had on my dream 'to do' list for it, not really thinking I'd ever actually do.
Of course I did them all, and them some.
(In no particular order)
Bed Rug in the tub
ARB front recovery point
Diff/Transfer case breathers
265/75/16 Nitto Trail Grapplers
Phat Bars rock sliders
Ebay front grille
Ebay 9 inch round LED lights
HPD catch can
Rear facing LED lights
Cleaned the EGR and inlet manifold (which was surprisingly clean for 180,000kms)
Ebay canvas seat covers
Mounted some tie down points in the tub for a tool box
Hella supertone horn - my wife used to laugh at me because i was too embarrassed to use the horn....the one in her camry sounds like a truck in comparison. And yes she would have noticed if i swapped it
And then plasti dipped (or sometimes just painted) every bit of chrome or aluminium on it
That's where it stands at the moment, I'll see if I can get a decent shot of it tomorrow.
Hopefully in a couple of months it'll be going through biggish transformation. Tub is going, and I'll be running 33's legally and engineered, plus a few other little bits and pieces
