No need for bagging other brands.I'm sure that there will be many other brands of tow rigs out there

3.2 or 2.2?

Depends on model. All XLT are 3.2 whether 4x4 or 4x2. Not sure on XL though.

Drives fantastic. Turbo diesel and its hauling over 3.2 ton around all day every day. Its got plenty of pulling power up the hills and a shit load of room in it for all the gear and parts I need for work.

Just make sure you change the fuel filter every 20,000km,helps prevent dirt and debre getting into the injectors.Also if you notice if it has any diesel rattles on start up etc,have it looked at and or have a diesel injector clean.By doing this it will prevent the big dollar costs of having to replace the injectors and or fuel reg if it gets that bad.Also havinbg the injector readings checked.They should be no more than 3.

 

The reason why i mention this is that we have done a few injectors but many injector cleans on the hilux's,prado's and hiace's.Very prone to doing injectors and fuel regs.

Yeah this one has done about 20,000 now. I get it serviced every 10,000 at the local Toyota dealership. I have heard about those problems with the Toyota diesels. My last one was exactly the same but a 2005 model. I did 220,000 in it with no problems at all. Its still getting used for the same thing now. Only thing it really could use now is a new clutch. Not bad for hauling that weight around its whole life though.

And yes I know the injectors and timing chains and shit give dramas in these,until 2015 thats nissan's problem and after that it's someone else's 'cos I wont own it.

Well my daily is my xf wagon, soooo most of you know what it looks like.

 

The tow vehicle, wheneve i need to, i have acess to either a 2010 Kia Sorrenro Platinum, TDi 2.2L 6spd auto. This thing has town my wagon twice, and does it with ease. Will even sit happily in 6th at under 100 with the xf behind it.

The other one i have access to is a 2005 Land Rover Discovery 3 S, TDV6, 6 spd manual, with computer controlled, height adjustable air bag suspension. Yes manual, one of less than 10 in aus. This is a dam brilliant car, no matter how much people bag the shit out of it. Its had all the EGR system blanked off, which made a massive difference.

Just messing around, family truck is an 05 lancer and have owned most brands. There is good and bad in all.

 

The ranger is 2.2, 6 speed manual, 2wd.

The Kia having a play in some mud haha

And raised. All the bags work correctly now, after the LR place blew one up without realising. It would stay up while the engine was running and the compressor could run, but park and it would deflate. All is good now though

Up the mountain by the looks of it?

 

My daily drive.

3y4e7y9u.jpg

 

My daily depends on the fuel I have left, or what I feel like driving, or what's broken and what's not. Some days it'll be my ute, other times its this awesome little machine:

Honda Concerto, 1989, EFI, 1.6, 5spd manual, elec windows, mirrors, central locking, courtesy lights everywhere. Best thing is its fuel useage, 5L/100km on the highway. Not bad for a 24yr old car.

 

Tow rig is the ute as the Honda has no towball, and I doubt a 1.6 petrol with only 150ish nM would tow much.

My babys. The CX9 is my company car/family truckster. This is the day i got it about 2 years ago so also the day the LTD hung up it's daily duties hat. My wife has kind of stolen the Mazda now as she carts the kids more than i do so most of the time i get to zip around in her 03 corolla sportivo.

I wish i had taken a photo of when i helped my friends move house with the wagon. Had a decent size tandem trailer on, loaded with furninture, and what ever the f else we could fit, plus a boot full of boxes. Then 4 of us in the car hahahaa. Needless to say, lowered xf wagons should not take heavy ass loads. It was riding on the bump stops most of the trip :( the poor buggers in the sagged back seat kept getting a diff in their asses everytime we hit a bump hahaha
