    Hi Guys,
    I am sort of cheating a bit as l dont have a Tacoma instead l have a Lux.
    Its a beast and l love it.
    I bought it to hunt out of and work too.
    So far l am very happy with it.
    I have the D4D 3.0 manual.

    Welcome to TW! A lot of folks here are interested in the Hilux because of the diesel option. Now we have someone who can chime in with experience of owning one.

    Welcome!!!

    What kind of modifications do you have? Just curious to see what you guys have over there and what's under that truck. Got any pictures?

    Even the little modifications - I'm a sucker for 'something different'

    Hi Guys,
    Thanks for the warm welcome.
    Lots of the 4x4's in Oz are diesel.
    I am a refrigeration mechanic by trade so the custom boxes are real handy.
    Also a keen hunter so the space between the boxes has already seen a bit of action.
    What l would like to know is whether a set of Tacoma seat covers would fit my Lux.
    I am after Realtree Camo in something fairly heavy duty as l am a grot and always get in the car dirty from hunting or working.
    Camo isnt as popular in Australia as it is in the US, Bummer!
    It has bucket front seats with adjustable head rests and and 3 individual headrest in the rear bench seat which fold up at the bottom and not forward at the back like some 4x4's do.
    Also front doesnt have side airbags or anything like that.
    Any suggestions???
    If l have to l will take some pics of the inside and post them so you get the idea of what they look like.
    Cheers.

    That's because we're all a bunch of hillbilly rednecks!! heheheheee...

    Definately post some pictures. Have you thought about contacting Toyota to cross reference the seats/information?

    IIRC, the seats are the same dimensions as the tacomas, check out Wet Okole seat covers, or hang around a bit until the next group buy on here. Welcome by the way!
