I joined this forum last year asking for helping choosing the right vehicle for a trip through Southern and Eastern Africa. My wife and I bought a Hilux KZ-TE 2003, which was already kitted out with a snorkel, rock sliders, drawers, bosbreker, aluminium canopy, OME suspension, etc. Although there wa...

Wheel Traction Pads R300

What do you think of these tracks?

Re: New member, still looking for first Hilux

Thanks guys. Here's the Hilux I had a look at today. Took it for a short test drive as well. It seemed very well maintained with a few nice additions like the aluminium canopy, etc. Aircon still working, almost brand new set of tyres. https://www.gumtree.co.za/a-cars-bakkies/other/2003-toyota-hilux-...

Where on the forum is the best place to post a link to a gumtree ad to get some comments on whether members think it is a good buy or not? Just as an initial filter for whether the price seems reasonable, etc.

New member, still looking for first Hilux

Hi all My wife and I are planning a trip as far up as Ethiopia. After much research we have decided that a Hilux is the only real option, specifically a model between 1998 and 2005 (preferably a KZ-TE). I suspect this forum will be very helpful in our decision process and then we would also like to ...
