    Tow Rolla

    Bought this to haul my corolla around



    Need to lengthen the chassis 600-700mm. Tare is 1500kg and GVM is 3350kg. By the time you add me, fluids and tray it should be able to have 1500kg on it's back. Goes pretty well even towing 2000kg as the motor was redone a year or two ago.

    Had a C channel pressed up out of 5mm to plate the chassis. On Monday I want to get the tailshaft down to be lengthened. Hopefully I don't need a two piece.

    Should owe me a bit over $4000 all done

    Definitely fuck off the cart springs and add bags so you can minimise any ramps you need, keep the weight down and drastically improve the ride

    Short term I'm not planning on getting too fancy on this. Next year I'll make it a bit nicer.

    Hopefully stretching the wheelbase softens the ride a bit

    New plates

    Nice find. I've often thought something like that would cart the mini around perfectly.

    Didn't these have a 3B or something? I don't think it would do 100 even as it sits now.

    It's a 2.8 diesel, towed a car on a trailer today and held 100 on the freeway easy

    Are those tyres even correct for it?

    Pretty sure they're meant to have LTs and split rims.

    NFI, I think it's the same as the 2.8 in the '90s Hilux. TBH I didn't even know there was such a thing as a Dyna 150, I thought they went from the little 100 straight to the bigger 4500kg ones.

    why not put a lazy axle under the back of it and extend the rear of the chassis (and add more brakes that it will desperately need being a Dyna) rather than break it's back?

    Surely a second hand hilux turbo kit should be all it needs motor wise if its the same engine.

    It's a Dyna, you don't want it to be fast.
