2001 Toyota Hilux raider D/C 2.7i 4x4. Completely original except for the mags and stainless bull bar. Best thing about this car is the mileage. 55,000 km! :yahoo: Now I just need to put some practical wheels on and I am away! Hulle blink pragtag maar hulle is nie baie prakties vir die Bos nie :lol:

If anyone is interested in the wheels contact me. They are 20 inch mags with Yokohama Advan S/T tyres. Still have approx. 70% tread on them. Apparently the previous owner paid R25000 for them. I will sell them for R15000. Still good as new

Can't agree more! :thumbup:

Looks like 6 of those spots are stainless steel Warn units - damn good spots! I would however remove those on the roll-bar - not strictly legal and you might pick up some flack, but the truth is that they snag in the bush and sometimes even don't fit under a standard garage door especially if the vehicle has been raised. Keep them as spares, (not you will ever need unless you break lenses) or flog them off to recover some costs. ;-)

Thanks for the advice. They are indeed Warn units. I plan to remove the top spots so I can get an alu canopy on.

Thanks yotaman . How many kms you got? Had the hilux roadworthied today. Nearly had a fit as the inspector was literally trying to pull the front door off its hinges. When I asked what the **** he was doing he said it was standard procedure..... Not sure about that but the door survived and the hilux now has it's RWC. :slap:

Dis belaglike lae km's daai :!: maar ek ry die idee dit gaan nie baie lank so ably nie ;-)

Baie geluk :!: :!:
