    3.0L (1kz-te). Goes pretty well, but stock 3.7 diffs and 33" tyres doesn't help. Will go 4.1 or 4.3 diffs at some stage.

    Nopics reversed this into a pole a few weeks ago and wrote it off. Has damage to RHR quarter but with a new light is still roadworthy. Took the opportunity to upgrade.



    Will make a new thread for the hilux and probably a for sale thread for the GV soon!

    I'd be up for that, I don't really know where's good to go locally though

    Yeah, for a while Calmini seemed to favor just supplying the arms etc and letting you choose the springs and shocks.

    Rear should be LSD? Prolly get away with fuckall need for a locker unless you wanna go the really gnarly paths.

    Seems well thought out/right coin in right places and in good shape too:D Be a few good long weekends of fun in that bug.
