There is but nothing on this Earth that can ever be as beautiful as:

* A Hilux SFA
* Prado 90

Congrats George, may you have many, many happy miles in her. You just need to replace the running boards, I had a pair in excellent condition but I gave them away to a chap in KZN a while ago when I fitted Org's sliders.

Now get that CAT removed!

George, on PraDog it was just after the two branches joined into one pipe, more or less under the front seats. I onoly took a pic of it after it had been removed 'cos I never thought of it earlier, but you should be able to ID it from this pic. Also, just before it, you will see the wires leading into the pipe.

Well we did our 2600KM to Zambia and back over December to visit the Inlaws.
Louis Trichardt to Francistown 8.5KM/L
Francis town to Livingston and back to Louis Trichardt 6.5KM/L
The D/C KZ-TE 4x4 also Pulling a Trailor avraged 8KM/L
The Petrol We filled with in Botswana was a bit Dodgy as i wanted start the Fire in Zambia at the boiler after some rain.
The burning effect 500ML petrol was similar to 200ML petrol
Burned off quickly, with litle explosion (cant find the right word noe but you get the Pic) and did not burn as long as i'm used to

All in all i'm very happy with the beast.

Eric, you need to change those rims and tyres on the Prado in your "cat" pic. :twisted:

Andy, as ugly as they are, they have never let me down with a puncture, no matter where I drive. Methinks Oom Thys could do with a pair of them.. ;)
