    There is a lot of 'bro moment' shit going on now. I see shitland street is showing a lot of it at the moment, not against it just rather not see it!

    In Nelson (F)rangers are everywhere and not one of their drivers can park,indicate,give way....infact if you see a ute being driven like a cock 95% chance it will be a (F)ranger.

    Havent seen many if any Amaroks here?

    Sounds like your typical company lease vehicle for a trades company management/supervisor guy.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    Amarok pronounced "I'm a cock"

    The last of the Jap models are the best, I paid top dollar for a 2001 Hilux 4WD with 131,000 km's and it's mint and I will never sell it. This truck should see me out, the new Hilux drives like a car but crap off road

    There are times when you need revs to keep your tread clean. Clogged up tread works as good as road patterns.

    Havent "driven" the 2.8 other than around the yard.

    No throttle reverse 11kph(manual) thats pretty fucken fast to back a 3.5 tonne trailer uphill round a corner.
    6 speed first gear a little more reasonable at about 6kph idle.

    Pretty keen backing a 3.5 tonne trailer uphill round a corner in a manual, unless your in low range, then it's easy

    Unless you are on a hard surface and bind all the transmission up so the electronics cant get it back out of low 4,at least in the 106 days you could get low range 2wd.
