    Default 2.4 GD6 hilux (2017-18) cruise control

    I have seen a few guys say that they have had cruise control fitted to their 2.4s, apparently the newer gen has a kit that toyota quickly can plug in.

    How well does it work on the manual?
    Where did you fit it ?
    What was the cost?
    How long did it take?
    What is the quality and usability like?

    This should make for a nice informative thread for us wondering about adding cruise control.

    Has anyone fitted the cruise control at a Toyota Garage in Pretoria or Johannesburg? What is the part number?

    Seems like Toyota Lynnwood can do it.

    I did mine. KZN though at Toyota Durban South. It's the best thing I added as an extra to my hilux. It just works. Those long trips, six gear and just relax. I have the serial number if anyone is interested. Can add them here. I friend of mine that works at a different Toyota in the Midlands asked me for it so they can also start installing it for new 2.4 bakkies. Cost me R2300. Took 2 hours.

    [edit] not in the pictures is the wire that connects the cruise control to the computer thingy. That also needs to be installed.

    R 2300 is peanuts for this. I'm totally spoiled with the Speedocruise on my Lux. On long steep inclines I drop to 5th to save the turbo, put in 6th again when over the koppie, and sit back, relax and listen to old Tom (Waits) doing his thing.

    Here is the promised feedback.

    Had my speedo cruise fitted at Lynwood Toyota in Pretoria today. Vehicle went in at 9am and was ready by 11am.

    Total cost was R1303.00 for parts and R750.00 for the labour. A bargain for the convenience in my opinion.

    And this 2.4 is a train!! I tested it on the N1 south going up the hill towards Rigel Ave fixed at 130km/h and she pulled beautifully. Cant wait to take her long distance!!

    Great thank you I am going to arrange that mine goes in next week Friday. The cruise control is the only thing that hurt my heart when I chose the 2.4 😂

    I still cannot understand how a R400k 2016+ vehicle is not fitted with Cruise control as a standard feature?
    One of the stupid mistakes in life is to underestimate peoples level of stupidity!

    I have phoned Toyota Lynwood and they tell me it is R8000 and they have never done it for less. Toyota Alberton and Toyota Honeydew gives prices of over R4000. Can you maybe post your invoice then we can demand the same prices from them.
