How about a 'this is my hunting truck' thread?

I'll start, Mitsi Challenger '06...was looking at Surfs but too old for the $$, and Prado's were too expensive to thrash
Stock standard....not sure how State Ins views mods yet. Would like to lift 2" and fit diff lockers

I forgot air bags in the rear for towing heavy loads, on board ARB compressor and exteneded diff breathers  Grin  Always wanted an Aussie Landcruiser set up properly so when the opporunity to buy this one came up I leapt at it.

Like those Rangers Sako243. Hope you get a good run out of it. The 120 series Prado are a very good truck too, did you get a good run out of it?

Down sizing here guys  Grin Grin
My hunting truck, I've thrown some Linglong AT 205s on this since the photo

M13A 1328cm2 producing 110/ 4,100 of torque

They are basically a 4x4 mini with the way they handle on the road.  This is my daily commute runaround wagon

You can just about fit a labrador in the back  Smiley

I got a good run out of it. I got it at 100k and its now got 220k on the clock. I'm now doing close to 40k a year and at that, the 30-35% fuel saving is arguably a big factor in upgrading. Servicing costs less and further service intervals helped.

The other main thing was being a private passenger classified vehicle, I was being stung FBT. The ranger on the other hand, being a commercial vehicle solely used for business use I'm fine.

It's on TM if anyone wants a good wagon. Still looks in awesome condition and drives well.  Wink

after upgrading my old Subaru to something smaller for the missus I was in need of a new hunting wagon and recently this has been proving its worth.



1992 Hilux double cab

its my first real 4wd but so far it does go really well for what I will use it for.
