Can't find anything on the forum for this other than Norm_C's rig.

Others would have mentioned that the new Hilux is too long and low for 4WDing. Very poor ramp over angle to the point where I don't want to take it anywhere until its raised.

So got a 2inch medium duty lift lined up.

Side steps though - the light weight ones that it comes with have a 2inch vertical section on them before they come out for some reason? They only have 200mm clearance. Can't locate any after market high steel steps like you can get for the old Hilux's. Can anyone help me out here?

Norm - where did you get yours mate? They look perfect.

Hey big al,
All the big names sell them ARB, TJM etc. I think you will find toyota drop them down so real short arses can reach them.

Oh yeah why don`t you check out http://www.newhilux.net/index.php

What city are you in Big Al? You can have custom sliders built if you require truck lifting strength.

Thanks for the replies guys.

Stu - yeah, I rang TJM who put the canopy and bull bar on for me and they were really good and knowledgable (was a bugger finding an allow bar that had the fog lamps and winch capabilty - ended up with an ECB bar). Bloke at the local TJM said you couldn't get steps for the Hilux. ?? Hence my post. Have since discovered they're on their website though.

Alex - in Brissie. Don't need strength, I can just see the factory steps getting trashed, they're so low.

Prados had the same problem. Simplest solution is to remove the sidesteps and leave them off.
