I will be taking a job in the USA, so we are moving benginning of next year. For those who have followed the life of "Sifu-Lux" on the forum, you will know that I am a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to doing a job properly, and I have done almost all the work myself, as I really don't trust anyone esle to work on my Hilux.

Sjoe! I would actually buy it for the ARB lockers and TrailGear X-fer boxes alone. How does the carb behave on steep side slopes and steep accents / descents?

Hi Andy, sad indeed... wish I could take it with me.

I have never had any issues with the carb (Weber 38 DGAS) other than once running out of fuel after a high revving long climb. I never understood all the other guys problems as I never experienced any with this carb. Maybe the electric fuel pump helps and I got lucky setting up the float level

He slept soundly last night. After his ordeal on the return trip - Heavy downpours with visibility down to less than 20 metres at times - long sections of narrow roadworks and big trucks crawling along in convoys.

Stef, in this particular case you have to look at the cost of the serious kit that this lux has like the ARB air lockers (front and back) with additional air vessel (you're not going to loose your lockers if the engine stalls and you have to run forward or back against compression, or if there is an electrical failure) - the TrailGear dual x-fer cases that give you a wide range of gearing as low down as about 20:1 - the full OME. That already accounts for half the price of the vehicle if not more, not to speak of the brand new 33" Grabbers - that's more than 9K besides all the other little bits mentioned in the ad. Add to that a whole lot of spares which loaded the bin to tailgate level. All taken into account I got the vehicle itself for a tiny fraction of it's value.

So ja, although I am in total agreement, this particular instance is not a good example for your argument. :D:

So ja, although I am in total agreement, this particular instance is not a good example for your argument. :D:

Now it's my argument... :mocking:

I hear you, quite a bit of kit, granted, but we always say that you recover very little of the value of the extras so in my view you did not really get the vehicle for a tiny fraction, you got the extras for a bargain. If we consider your estimates and bump it up to R90k in extras with a 30% recovery, the vehicle itself was R80k..even at R70k it is not bad for a '91 SFA if we bear in mind that a '99/2000 Prado here on the forum sold for R79k recently. Perhaps not the best example but still relevant.

Similarly if I were to spend R90k on a Lexus conversion on my SFA I'd be lucky to get R20k more than I could as is with the stock 22R come selling time; still that doesn't make it a R30k vehicle, I'm just sponsoring R70k towards someone else's enjoyment ;-)
