    But a good old Hilux just keeps going and going and going
    Timmay, graham99, BRADS and 4 others like this.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I think first on the list before having one of those you need an oil well and a money tree!

    I think they are $55K in America so someone is being greedy.

    I'm sure we will see the day when the models we see here are the same as the US ones.

    Can't wait

    I doubt that. They won't bother with the hassles of making them RHD for our very small market.
    The conversion cost is about $70k NZD so I guess it's not to greedy. You can import one and leave it LHD if you want, but it sucks on our roads.

    Also as much as I like them, I'm not sure I'd want to do the miles I do in one. I'd be working just to pay for the fuel, Ranger is bad enough at 8.6l per 100km, the raptor would be twice that.

    No road user charges for the petrol would give you a hand with the fuel.
