Congratulations! I see that you bought it From Ludhiana.

I went for a test drive there only. However my family disagreed on buying a 2 door truck.

Looks awesome.

Congrats Turbanator! This really looks good! Dual cab would make this way more juicier. Tata and Mahindra this is how pikups are supposed to look!

Please post more pics once you get the lift done.

Was driving solo from Trivandrum to Bangalore two weeks back, maintaining a constant 100 kmph on the 4 lane near Salem which an Innova zoomed into the rear view flashing it's lights. Gave way, only to see a pickup flashing it's lights. Sure must have been maintaining 120 or more and seemed to be chasing the Innova comfortably.

Shocking part was- it was loaded to the max with bananas. Developed a new found respect for the D-Max then and there. Should be one mighty machine without load.

This will embarrass a hot hatch like Polo Tsi when with no load.
Your regular Punto, Swift, bold, liva etc., don't stand a snowballs chance in hell.
Only problem, stopping it is nowhere as quicker as accelerating. The skinny tires make it slide like an Olympic skier going down the big jump slope.

Witnessed something very similar on the NH47 between Salem and Avinashi - a loaded D-Max cruising comfortably at 3-digit speeds. After the AL Dost, this is another powerful yellow-board machine on the roads that's surprised me. The former would run out of steam beyond 100kmph with load, but the D-Max is a class apart.

Snowman Logistics' D-Max = Refrigeration application. They're in the food storage & delivery business.

Actually, this is the reason even non AC variants of DMAX come with user accessible AC pulley, so commercially available refrigeration systems are a direct bolt on with minimal modification. The engine is powerful enough too!

Couple of weeks back was there in chennai & I happened to meet couple folks from ISUZU corporate office. Have enquired them about chances of 4*4 in double cab coming to india, That might come only when the plant is ready in AP by 2016.

Saw this D-Max in white board today. Good to see more private buyers showing interest in the D-Max.

Test drove the vehicle the other day. Its easily the best of pick-ups around, will do whats its meant to do perfectly. That said, a private buyer who buys that for other reasons than load carrying, may not be too happy with it. Why I say that because, the Ride quality is horrible without load at the back, it will kick you around at the slightest of bumps or speedbreakers. I got a back ache after the TD over mettled roads.

Then the gear-changes are not slick as typical Jap cars, very rubbery gear changes. To top it all the dealer told me that you can only get it registered as a Commercial vehicle. So be ready to pay a yearly road tax.

Without a twin-cab or a private registration it may not be the right buy for a private customer looking for an urban runabout. But for the intended purpose it may excel.
