Bought it off the 2nd owner who got it on 47,000k's. The 2.4D died in 1997. Was replaced with a rebuilt series 2 VN V6 at Chev Torque.

Have receipts since 92 for everything totalling $26k haha. Conversion alone was 10k+ drive in drive out. Fully permitted.

Anyway.

Details:
1986 Extra Cab Hilux
V6
Dyna Manual with HD Clutch
2" Lift which is probably starting to sag
3.8 ratio diffs
Sunnies with 32" BFG M/T
AIRCON
ARB Deluxe Bar
Dropside tray with canopy
VT Commodore radio which looks cool

Weirdly enough the original owner optioned a few SR5 things like door trims, seats, in dash clock etc.

Plans:
Find some flares for front
Get some commodore seats
UHF
Spotties
Water Tank
Toolbox
Wheel Carrier
Dual Batteries
Power Steering
Heater
