High-Lux

This big mean thing, ready to tear it up, roadside in Himachal:

It looked far more menacing in the real world.

Can someone enlighten me with the logic behind buying a flatbed pick-up and then fixing an aftermarket roof and windows on the flatbed to make it resemble a "jugaad" SUV?

I mean - would not this chap be served better ( and possibly richer by a few lakhs) by buying a Fortuner and then fixing the biga** wheels on it?

It's essentially the length of the cars. The Hilux is around 5.3 metres in length, while the Fortuner is around 4.8 metres.

So if you throw money to ravage, I mean tastefully modify, the Hilux, you can get an elongated Fortuner. And then throw more money for those ugly, I mean amazing, wheels.

Keeps the stuff on your flatbed protected from the elements - particularly rain & snow, and also theft.

Thank you sjain

Mods done on my GT-

• Stage 2 Venom performance ECU Tune with Pops and Bangs
• Decat Downpipe with Borla Muffler
• 205/55/16 Michelin primacy 3ST Tires
• Gloss black front splitter
• Hydrodipped Forged carbon fibre mirror caps
• Q2 style led taillights
• Ambient lights
• VCDS tweaks
• HID kit

Approx power figures are 135BHP/240NM

Post remap the car has become a pocket rocket, Specially in S mode the car becomes a different animal.

This has been my daily driven car and has almost completed 65k kms this month. GT is still a dream to drive with that engine and gearbox combo still puts a smile on my face every time i drive it.

I have mostly driven it in Pune but i have done few road trips, the longest i covered was from Pune to Vizag which was around 1200kms and this car was flawless!

The stability was amazing on highways and got FE of around 18-20kmpl which is great for a stage 2 car.

A pic from the trip to Vizag.

Great handling, power, build quality, ticks all the boxes.

Re: PICS : Tastefully Modified Cars in India

Saw this Thar Convertible in Gurgaon yesterday. Looks really swell in the Deep Forest paintshade with those Radar MT tyres, Fuel offroad wheels, Prad bumpers and Proman rock sliders.

Thar is one of those vehicles that you can modify in whatever way you like. Somehow, a lot of people still mess it up - either going overboard with fake cosmetics or creating something horrendous altogether. This, on the other hand, looks killer. Good share!

The tyres/wheels combo and the colour really makes this stand out. Curious as to how those tyres will ride on tarmac.
