    Default Introducing my Hilux Tiger 2003

    My dear 4x4 brothers,

    As some of you may know I sold my 1992 TLC 80 Series a few months back. Was a great rig and I enjoyed it to the max with not just IJC offroading, but also as a daily drive. However, feeding the 1FZ-FE on a daily basis VS the practicality card and after a lot of family pressure, I had to sell it.

    I now own a 2003 Hilux Tiger (Thai model) and I must confess, I am thoroughly enjoying it. The practical aspect is one thing, the fuel economy as opposed to the thirsty 1FZ-FE...lets just say my eyes are no longer constantly fixated on the fuel gauge We ALL know how that feels! Now the Hilux is no Land Cruiser in terms of comfort, this is something I felt instantly when I sat in it on Day 1. The TLC seats and suspension are way easier on the lower back as compared to this wild horse. But there is something about the Tiger that takes me back to the feeling I had when I owned the TLC 60 Series...A rough n tough wild work horse! Practical as hell and good on fuel, maintenance and overall just easy to keep for a long time. Plus, my 3 dogs love the open air of the daalla

    Other than that, this Hilux Tiger although originally a D4D with 1KD engine, was swapped with a 1KZ-Turbo by the previous owner for the reason of our super sulphur ridden diesel that kills the 1KD over time (unless you change the nozzles every 50,000 kms or so, for over Rs.80,000!)

    So let the pix roll and I will explain details and upgrades planned along the way....enjoy!

    Very nice ride . how is 1KZ performing in place of 1KD .
    although i am a big fan of D4D engines.
    unfortunately the tiger is one of the early 1KD which have faced lot of injector issues. however Toyota is improved its injectors in the later 1KD.
    try adding a inter cooler to get some extra Kick.
    any how Toyota Hilux is one of the best truck here in Australia..
    I have Couple of them here with me and they never let Me Down.

    @joinami

    Agreed 100%, the newer models seem to have solved the injectors problem of handling the high sulphur content in the diesel here. The 1KZ turbo certainly has a kick to it, not to mention the light weight of the Hilux itself weighing in at a athletic 1490kg only! It feels light on its feet for sure.
    Adding the intercooler is definitely on the bucket list.
    Reliability as you mentioned is unquestionable. I remember an episode of the red Hilux that was tested to the max by Jeremy Clarkson on Top Gear, a must watch episode for all. That says it all about the Hilux.

    I leave you with a quote I found online today:

    Agreed @terry007, I removed the rear bumper and the shield of the front bumper last night, leaving the chrome bit on for now. Has definitely revealed the tyres more! Have a look...

    Its really quite simple. Go to any decent mechanic and it will be done. I have had a good experience using LiquiMoly products, try them out.
