Unread post by Ln65 pig rig » August 3rd, 2014, 9:28 am

Hey 4wd actions buddy's,

I grabbed this hilux from out the back of orange the other week. I've decided to turn it into a hunting rig for the weekends and camping trips away. I've got some ideas for it and I'll bang up pics as I go..

Yeah mate needs to be practical. I'm keen to be able to go deep into the scrub for weeks at a time. I'm tossing up on how to set up the rear hooks for hunting. I want them removable as I don't the look of driving round in town with that type of ***** still hanging of the truck...we have a lot of young dudes here in Newcastle running the cages and hook while still being in town.. It's got to a point I reckon it's a fashion statement for young blokes..embarrassing I say.. Plus I grantee they have never hunted a day in there life.. Oh well each to there own I say

The hilux came off the car carriers last night not without a fight. The first car carriers that took it from out the back of orange to sydney had to let the tyres down to get it on their trailer.. Which left me thinking that maybe It has a lift? Sure as hell it had old man emu nitro charger that the owner forgot to mention with a 2inch shackled lifted springs..after knocking on neigboyrs doors it took six blokes to move it with dead flat tyres

Took a Aussie sickie today and got the following done:

Oil flush and change
Radiator flush and coolant
Trail fitted the front fridge
Pumped all tyres up with new valves
Clean out the interior of bullet caseings(haha) and dog hair
Ct18 the entire under body and engine bay
New radiator cap and few hoses


I'll throw a few pics up on sat morn

Did a bit today on the pig rig

Cleaned out the cab found $1.45 a few 22 bullet casings and a rats nest. I'm going to spray on sound deadner to help with the road noise and hopefully keep any internal rust a bay. Where are people getting replacement vinyl flooring from? I've seen a few advertised on ebay but there pretty expensive.. Maybe that's just the going rate?

Hey buddy,

Yeah sent those guys an email for what I wanted an they emailed back with a qoute for it. Put both front and rear on order with them and being a Aussie company I'm happy..I got a few second hand gaurds that came with the puchase so I'm in the middle of knocking them back in primer and getting them ready for fit up. I've come up with something a little different for a snorkle idea so I'll bang a pic up after fab up.. I've decided to give it a full respray in 1k white with a little bit of metallic thrown in for good measure..
