I got a note from Toyota yesterday announcing the 2005 new,bigger Hilux will be avail in April..Hope it has not gone too soft.We bought a new Hilux dualcab (last of the live axles) and wish we had never traded it..Did a 7500km Kimberley adventure with Portmans.What a rig.What a trip.Magic.Miss the "real" 4x4 with "real suspension".But would still, consider a new 2005 Hilux as I think they have been around Asia for 2 yrs now.Apparently they could be seen,if watching closely,in the news reports of the wave devestation in Thailand etc recently.So at least we know the motors etc have been well tested.Hope I can still use my steel/split rim on it.Remember how 'cruisers changed from 6-stud to 5-stud when they got more powerful motors.Strange !

I know that the pic of the interior and dash layout was very very similar to my 120 series Prado.
