    Re: The 2.4 Hilux Revo SRX GD-6 Double Cab Thread

    I bought a can of MAF cleaner and pulled the MAF. It was clean as a whistle :D

    The trick is a thin layer of grease on the air filter gasket when you install it. On the GD6 motor it is known to...

    Re: LC Prado Back Suspension

    To be fair, a decent sized piece of stainless isn't cheap, but if the table is well made, it's for life.

    Re: Revo/Vigo suspension compatibility

    I can confirm that Pro Fender front suspension off a D4D fits a GD-6 perfectly.

    Takes about 45 minutes a side to remove the factory strut and fit the replacement.

    Must be the tyres.

    My 2.8 4x4 AT gets a consistent 10.6l/100km driving 50/50 town/highway, empty. And I drive like a granny.

    On a related note, there's a new factory going up near me that has the contract to produce the wiring harnesses for these new Fords. Their existing factory does the Hilux harnesses.

    Re: GD6 auto sport mode?

    It is sequential mode, not sport mode.

    The only thing that it does is limit the highest gear that you can use. So S6 is exactly the same as D. S5 is exactly the same as D except it will never go...

    Yep. Prado belonging to a mate of mine down the road. He ended up installing a generic roof rail to mount his genuine FR rack on because they just said no.

    Re: Frontrunner attitude/customer care???

    The Isuzu/Toyota is an example.

    The point is, this has nothing to do with a home made rack. They won't sell you the feet even if you already have a FR rack to fit the feet to.

    Sure. But let's say you sell your Isuzu and keep the FR rack. You buy a Toyota and want feet so you can fit your FR rack to your Toyota. They won't do it.
