Toyota Fortuner

Unread post by Todka » November 11th, 2015, 9:14 am

Hi. This car really interests me as I'm looking for a capable 4WD that isn't too big for daily city use.
The only thing I don't like is the absence of long range tanks. They can't be added can they?
My intended use would be mostly city driving with annual holiday trips that cover long distances and destinations like Frazer Island and W.A. Kimberley's.
Thanks.

Long ranger have a tank for the new Hilux, I don't know if it fits the Tuna. :fish:

This is what Toyota should have introduced downunder, the US style 4Runner.

Even I would switch brands for something like that!
Yes I did! Built with spanners not chop sticks!

That made me realise that at 7.3l per 100s, the stock tank covers 1095k's anyway. And that 140l long range tank extends to over 1900k's. Perhaps it isn't needed after all.

And if you are going long distance you will possibly get better again.. I think that is the combined figure for memory..
At some stage someone will probably release a bigger tank to replace the original and most definitely a sub for the rear however then you have to find somewhere to put the spare..

And I agree Clarkey would love to see the 4runner in Aus although the fortuner is growing on me.. I think it has a lot of potential for a touring rig with manners and the rear diff lock should see it do pretty well with some tyres!

The Fortuner is kinda ugly, maybe I could be convinced to change my mind with some bar work and toys added :lol: :truck:

Naturally Blackbird. The canvas is plain. Then we add the paint.
Id go the toyota bar in black, black wheels, pimp out some powerful lighting, snorkel, running boards, and without know xactly which, some bigger tyres with chunky tread. That would be a start.

Todka, It would look pretty mean with colour-matched bar work as well. Include a winch and I think your right on the money.

D'oh! Forgot the winch!
What do you reckon between the alloy bulbar and the steel? The alloy would look good in black, if it can be painted or powder coated.

I'd go steel bar because I've hit a 6ft Roo at 110km/hr at there wasn't any alloy bar or radiator left :lol: In saying that, I haven't hit a Roo with the steel bar on. Is there space for a winch on the premium steel bar though? I've got a real thing going for colour-matched bar work atm :lol:

Yeah the website says you can put their warn winch in the steel bar but you need a winch fitting kit..
Alloy comes in winch and non winch variants..
