SR, Modified Episode 33:
The third Hilux but the second N170 Diesel Hilux
featured to date on Modified. This one being the Toyota Hilux SR version, D4D
The main feature on this Toyota is the rear
canopy which is yet another DIY master piece created by Mitch himself. A very
simple and neat layout which many could learn from, the only thing missing as
far as Mitch is concern are front and rear diff locks. Click Any Image To Enlarge Or To Open Photo Album.
Together we breakdown the vehicle in stages as
always getting to the bottom of a few topics many Hilux owners would like to
know i.e. how to fit 33’s and CV angles.
