Hilux Makeover

Postby Wineandmud » Tue Jul 01, 2008 9:26 pm

Basically i bought it stock from Newcastle 4wd centre for an ok price. It had 250k on the clock and looked pretty straight. Kept it at home for awhile until I decided to take it through some mud at Medowie. The poor old cooper 31" a/t's were struggling and so was the motor. It was a 96 2.8d which later supprised me with a blown rear main and a little blow by.
the 1st thing to go was the side steps then the old bushes. Replaced the shackles with new greasable ones,bushes, second hand springs which gave it the 2" lift and adjustable tough dog shocks. I then extended the brake lines and lifted the body 2" to fit the 33" mickey thompson muddies. The motor eventually gave in so a full rebuild was done (bored to 3.0L). New radiator,clutch, machined flywheel mandril bent extractors and a snorkel. I found an old bullbar at the tip for $50, cleaned and sprayed it and fitted it. Other mods are ln106 front diff and brakes, rear lsd diff and brakes , air con and power steering. Phew that's alot of typing for me, hang on...i need a beer.............o.k so now the old 84 needs a rebuilt power steering box ( I will be taking it out this weekend)
