My every day driver with some mods.

Under the seat mods.

Injection - 50/50 water/Metho (cold air induction)

Gearbox - 4SP VP Commodore

Diff - original Toyota rolled to suite

Wheels Front California 8x15 - 205x65x15 Bridgestone

Wheels Rear California - 10x15 - 265x70x15 Hankook

Exhaust - dual 2" from cat to twin stacks behind cab

Brakes - Hi-lux Front disc, Rear original truck drums

Suspension - Front reset coils lowered 4"

Rear original 2 ton leaf springs lowered 7"

Interior (not finished) full set Pro-Comp Gauges,carpet,sunroof

This is used as my normal daily car

And it's all legal I have the engineering certificate.

best part about it being classed as a truck is a lot of car regulations don't apply.

Wish my '86 2.5 diesel could do that! She's got 267,000 kms. on the clock, and her first 5 or 6 years were as a construction machinery cargo van... then the guy who used to drive it bought it from his boss, and converted it to a camper... I got it off him 4 years ago - with 240,000 something on it - and have travelled all over Spain - mostly bike meets - since.... She's taught me to stay in the slow lane, and wave BIGGER trucks on by!!! (Not used to going so slow... but then again, not used to NEVER breaking down, either! My Ducati Darmah just won't let me sleep peacefully!)
