    Niiiice ^^

    Nah not yet, but it's only done 300 kays :p
    I love it to drive. The auto is very smooth and it has plenty of get up and go. Plenty of room in the back for passengers and generous space in the tub.
    Forgot to add the tub has a ute liner in it as well.

    Sweet lux mate. Looks great, and the flares make the SR look tough :thumbsup: Although I really hope it wont be that clean too much of the time haha. Rims look nice too.

    With luck I'll be replacing my VS with a good secondhand D4D SR5 in a couple months and doing the usual roobar, brush bars, spotties, UHF, lift kit, etc. Hoping to do some touring right across the country and wanted a 4x4 dual-cab that was comfortable on the highway and capable off the beaten track.

    What I wanted to do if I chose to go for a SR was to colour code the wing mirrors and door handles. Would look great, better even that the chrome SR5 ones. Ad a bit of uniqueness to it too.

    Very jealous lol :)

    Cheers man.
    I looked at the SR5, but for what i do the carpet in particular wasn't practical for me, plus i'm personally not a fan of chrome on these so saved 5k and went the SR, more than happy with it :)
    Might colour code the grill too, saw one done and it looked pretty sweet.

    ... You mean it's not factory? Great job! Just shows how little I know about cars (or at least Toyota Hiluxs).

    It's from dig options mate, search him on ebay and you'll find him. Mine's the more expensive one, the ones on ebay are his cheaper models but contact him and he'll hook you up.
    It has usb and ipod control. Uses micro sd cards for the maps and has a reversing camera which is very handy. The install is a breeze since it is just plug and play, no wire cutting or joining required. :)

    That's awesome, thanks Juzo :) was looking at a Pioneer model that had WhereIs mapping for around a grand, but after reading a few reviews turned me off!
    How do you find it to use? Are you able to jump between the GPS and Stereo controls, and have music playing while the GPS is displayed? Seems obvious that it would but just wanna be sure. Has it got RCA pre-outs? Because I wanna upgrade the speakers and amplify them.

    Yeah mate, you can listen to your tunes while the gps is on no dramas. Mine has steering wheel controls and even they work with it. Comes with all the rca outputs you need, all included when you buy it in a seperate loom.

    Haven't posted in here for a while. Have since added rear speakers in the doors and a 4 channel amp. Amp fits nicely under the passenger seat.

    Also, a reversing camera which is pretty handy for hooking up the tandems and fuel tankers :)
