    Jy sal erens in n dam moet gaan in ry sodat jy iets kan kry om oor te kla, die mense hier gaan dink jy brag oor jou bakkie waaarmee jy tevrede is.

    Uys, will you swop again if you were in the position? Are you missing the FT or was it a good swop to the 2.4 Hilux? Iím getting to a point where Iím considering selling my trusted FT and Iím thinking about the 2.4 as an replacement.

    Reason for a double cab is that we have the 2.8 FT but also want to do some trips without the Bushlapa in tow and space is bit of a concern with 3 ladies in the vehicle .

    At this moment Iím not in a hurry as the d4d is just awesome reliable and servicing us extremely well...one of the best vehicles weíve owned, catering for all our needs most of the time. Some winter hunting trip I could use a bakkie though...

    Mamma has been driving a F30 335i since I got the White Hilux. It was a fantastic car, it did't give use one single problem in 5 years, but it just didn't work for us any more.

    So on Friday it left the family and we received this:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	IMG-20190922-WA0004.jpg 
Views:	341 
Size:	154.5 KB 
ID:	541800


    The invoice read:

    1 x Hilux 2.4 GD6, XCab 4x2, manual
    1 x Extended guarantee

    So no extras, net soos hy van sy ma af kom.

    And it is a fresh one too, rolled of the assembly line on Tuesday.

    So I'll be driving it and Mamma is taking the DC.

    Plans with it:
    1. Rubberizing (I hated loading stuff onto the bare load bin this weekend)
    2. Rear bumper
    3. Spacers on the struts


    That's it. I need to keep it light - the DC is very heavy on fuel because of weight and the muds.
    Everything is a hammer.
    Unless it is a screw driver.

    Then it it a chisel.

    Ja, seker maar, vir 3 redes:

    1. Om kinders en honde bo te hou
    2. Om te keer dat werkers van die kant af opklim
    3. Om n seiltjie te kan opsit vir reen dae.

    Ek het my 2.4 Extra Cab se maand trug gekry en n paar punte:
    Diesel gebruik is nogal goed. Kry 11km/l in stad en 12km/l op oop pad
    Speakers is vervang met Focals en maak n groot verskil asook extra speakers in agterste deure gesit
    Wag vir my Wildog nudgebat

    Love my bakkie.
