    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!

    the diesel fuel in Pakistan is ULSD.

    The reason the 1KD injectors croaked and died were because of the bad design and control system of them. Toyota updated the parts 2 more times to correct this issue and had to give free parts to thousands of customers.

    if you look around you will find a lot of mercedes CDI engines running with no problems on the same fuel. Their smoking is due to mechanics not following correct procedure.

    The reason for this engine swap must be due to cost - the cost for 4 injectors, the high pressure fuel pump, the pressure valve and sensor along with installation and calibration is almost three times the cost of a toyota 1KZ from scrap.

    If you are referring to the Transformers Autobots emblem on the front grill, then no. I added that myself.
    Compared to the Land Cruiser, Hilux is not that comfortable on long drives.

    Thank you Sir. I think the reason lies in the body weight of the Hilux. The 90's models of the Surf and Prado also come with 1KZ and I've often heard owners of getting mileages around the 7km/litre zone, probably because they are heavier than the Hilux.

    Hayzin great work. The Tiger looks great and I am sure it is performing up to your expectations. I had the 90 series RZ with 1kz. No doubt that 1kz has amazing power.

    Your Tiger is a great inspiration for me. I am planning to get hold of a Hilux double cabin LN 107!

    The legendary Hilux may be 'the unbreakable workhorse', but it's also surprisingly comfortable and ergonomically sound, with everything laid out exactly where you need it

    This is what the company says about hilux!I standby with the Unbreakable work horse but comfortable is where i differ. Though the utility, offloading capabilities it gives overcome the comfortable part
