Finally found the vehicle to replace my old Tojo, flew to Melbourne then train to bairnsdale,my old hometown ,to pick up the Toyota off a mate of mine who is upgrading to a new dual cab. It,s a late 2010 Gxl trayback,diff locks,dual batteries,spotties,130 litre under tray water tank,2 x toolboxes,gme UHF radio,61,000 Kay's,in very good nick.the tray was made by his old man who has a welding business in town. Took it for a run yesterday up to omeo and back,heaps of go,nearly pull the bend out of a river I reckon. Looking forward to the drive back to useless loop,w.a. Next week. Cheers,sparra

Very nice Sparra,

I had one before my 200 Series and, while I love the 200, quite often I miss the simplicity involved in adjusting things like the aircon. In the 200, I have to take my eyes off the road to do things like that, but in the trayback, you could do it by braille.

You'll love it.

I'm glad I ain't too scared to be lazy

Congratulations Sparra, looks beaut. Definitely like the extra bar work. Who did that, the mate father again?

Smick looking unit and looks very well kept and at 61,000 she isn't run in properly yet.
That would be a better buy than a new one mate.

Cheers, Bruce.

G'day Sparra, Tray backs have a lot going for them I would not go back to a wagon, only thing wrong is it's a Toyo not a Trol, only joking there all good.
That aside I'm an old Bairnsdale boy went to B'dale Tech to many years ago to remember could have been at school with your Dad, what's his name, I'm a Coster.

Bazza,

Vey nice beast. Hopefully one day I will see you over there at the loop and we can go for a look around the beaches etc. I know the vehicle you have brought and it comes from a bloke who has always looked after his gear. He's old man has done a lot of work for me , one job was the Barby Boat. Couldn't ask for a better tradesman. All the best Bazza and hope to see you soon. Boofa.
