Re: My 2.7 and Conqueror trailer - advice gents!

Thanks for all the advice! Must say, some of you guys sound very angry with Conqueror! But thanks, your advice is vital! I have the trailer in mind, seeing that I go camping at least once a month - not necessarily in the bush - and try to venture North at least 2 times a year. I can fit all my lugga...

Re: Why does the doo-doo always hit the honest guy

I am high risk (young, unmarried etc.) and my insurance (2.7 Hilux only) is R600 p/m with R6000 excess for major repairs. I guess you know how many times you can pay that monthly premium with R50k!

I hope the bad luck stops soon!

My previous car was a VW. It was a Diesel Turbo. Great car and very quick. I replaced 3 turbo's in 90 000km. I'm just a Toyota Guy.

Re: what will you pay for this(hilux)

It's always difficult to comment on these kind of matters, without really inspecting the car.

I'm a Gauteng man - if the car is in good general condition, I wouldn't mind paying up to 100K for this milaege.

Try for 90K or less though!

Enjoy the shopping!

Re: front bumber

Very cool! I think this is the best one I've seen for the new shape Hilux. The "nudge" bar variant looks best on these vehicles! When compared to other brands I think the price is also reasonable! Nou moet jy net die bokke uithaal! Enjoy bumper hunting!

Thanks for adding me on the forum. This is my 2000 2700i 4x4 dc, it has 230 000km's on the clock. I am a young man itching to sample some of the splendour Africa has to offer. A friend and I started planning a 3 month overlanding trip about 2 years ago. What started off as a crazy idea by two semi-d...
