Toyota had the brilliant idea of fitting four wheel drive to a two wheel drive ute - the Hilux. The result looked tall and spindly but it was comfortable, good value for money and quite capable in the bush. Other Japanese manufacturers followed suit and the results were economical alternatives to the "heavy-weight" Toyota LandCruiser, Nissan Patrol and Land Rover.
1988 Toyota 4Runner,
2.2 petrol/gas, 30" Desert Duelers on 15" alloy
speedy rims with standard hight clearance. It was taken in
Toolangi State Forest,
Victoria (located about 50km north east of Melbourne)
[which] has one of the hardest tracks I have ever seen -
1988 SR5 has the V6 engine
and all the factory options.
1987 Toyota Hilux xtra cab (white). The xtra cab gives
a bit of extra room for valuables,
luaggage, tools etc behind the front seats.
