Hi all

i currently have a 98 diesel hilux and am looking at trading it in for an 03/04 trition turbo diesel. Just a few questions.

1. can 15 inch wheels fit without any modifications?
2. what is the biggest tyre size i can fit without any modifications, ideally i would like to put the 31x10.5x15 muddies from my hilux on the triton?
3. is the 2.8TD electronically or mechanically fuel injected?
4. also are there any common known faults or things i should look out for when buying one?

Cheers for your help in advance.

largest ya can fit stock is 32x10.5x15 or 265x75x16...

Also things to look for are MAIN REAR SEAL LEAK, apart from that cant think of anything else ai, mines a 2003 and has been great...

Also not 100% sure though i dont think ya can go to 15 on the 03 because of the brake calibre, though you will have to double check though im about 85% sure hehehe..
