    Pics of down range with our contracted Toyota Hilux.

    Note: Deisel power was great, actually driving this truck for a year is why I am now a proud Tacoma owner: too bad contractor srewed us on some good tires...:cool:


    more pics of our Hilux, man it was a bad day...


    finally got through it, she is beat...

    The contractor then screwed us again by keeping it in the shop for one month, crappy SUV for loaner.

    Overall, I loved this truck on the hard ball, and or minimal off roading.

    But that one miserable day, I wish I had my Tacoma:D

    Some parts of the road, mud was so deep, we kept bottoming out. loss front grill, bent bumper guard, had to disengage horn, and sliced a tire open.

    Like I said pretty bad day. Only thing that did not happen was Airbag deploying, Ha ha ha...

    Oh for the question about uniforms and belly showing, that is a culture thing. Guess they believe it was a way to cool off. It's actually rolled up.

    Close, we all look the same. I'm from Thailand, but been to Cambodia as well. Lots of bad roads in Asia.

    Especially after their rainy season.

    It is off center, and is nothing like the TRD Sport in size.
    And correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the Hilux hood scoop is functional.

    Not sure. But tell the truth, Tacomas are way better. Maybe having diesel would help out on fuel economy but I would not give up my taco for a hilux. I'll just play in those, here and there when time is alotted...
