pete's stock gq

Postby dieseltech » Wed Aug 11, 2010 10:17 pm

i've been around for a while, for all those that dont know me, im pete.
have been meaning to do a thread for a while. anyway, i bought a 2.8 diesel hilux with efs 2" lift and 31" dessert duellers. that lasted 6 days (the car had about 463000kms when the odometer stopped sometime before i bought it) it was flogged and had no power steering, or even a back seat. i wsnt happy with it so i sold it and i bought this gq ST30 early last year as a bog stock family wagon from holsworthy in sydney.

Shame about the lux mate, but the GQ looks sweet.
I remember when I made Mrs D buy one(a GQ), we used it as a family bus for a couple of years, was great fun.
Take off the sway bars and youll have a little bit more movement.
Keep it coming mate.
