Hi Guys and Girls
Well sold my Hilux and time to start a new build project
Here's the starting point 2013 VX Ltd with 114,000km on the clock
Plans to start with are :

Exhaust (want to hear that V8 if i'm paying for the diesel)
Rear Draws
3rd battery in the back (already run the cable asn have a dc/dc charger from my Hilux)
Fit UHF I kept out of the Hilux - Not sure on antenna location yet
OME 50mm lift to the front and 20mm to the rear
MT tyres
Bull bar & wintch
Rear bar?
Underbody protection
Steel Roof rack

Will try and keep this up to date as I regret not documenting the Hilux build

Cheers
Mark

Old Man Emu 50mm front and 20mm rear lift fitted today
Feels good so far, stiffer front springs in the front to allow for bullbar and winch that’s coming

I hear you. I've sent my 105 to a bloke that works from home. Gull wing fitted, all suspension bushes done and a whole lot of cosmetic stuff. Can't wait to use it too now.
