I pick up my brand new triton next week.

With regards to lighting. Roo lite vs Lightforce in particular the 170 to 180 size lamps. Is it worth the extra coin going lightforce?
Any guys here experienced both brands. Both use a xenophot bulb so are you just paying for the brand name in this case?

Cheers

Only scrub i'll be getting into is going up north along the coast up to exmouth. Possibly down south for enduro style bike rides etc.

Is it replacing the Maloo Arie?

i miss the power of my ute, but the Nav can get 2 bike in back and take me anywhere.

It gets beaten up a little but it is 4x4, its meant to be used and abused.

Family first. I will be missing it but oh well. Fast car is next car

What model nav you got? D22? D40 aren't warranted for off road use.

oh cool, grats on the bub mate.

yeah i got a 2005 D22....i cant afford to shell out 40K for a new 4wd lol. could have gone for one of the newer D22's, but i didnt like the general consensus regarding the new 2.5L engine, ****e diffs and various other things breaking. The 3L can be opened up a bit more with minimal mods. I havent done anything to it yet mainly because i havent really needed to, but i woud like to chuck on one of the beaudesert exahausts an have the ecoshot system chucked on for some more pull.

I will end up keep this one for a as long as i can for carting the bikes, bush bashing and camping etc...its a pretty solid 4wd

WTF is with the D40 not being warranted for offroad

Its not a true 4wd ute. They say its good for tradies that enter building sites with uneven surfaces.

You know they are made in Thailand and Spain the D40s.

D22 Navara is where its at as far as navaras go.

pretty sure even the D22's are made in thailand now. Some of the earlier 2.5L were made in Japan, but im pretty sure that's not the case now. Im betting that the reason for all the D22 + D40 breakages is because of where they are now manufactured.

Also the D40 has a very low sump. Giving it not much clearance for off road use. Had a couple of customers destroy D40s as a result of the low sump smashing things.

not able to carry the weight of a steel bull bar as it fractures welds on the chassis .

axle and bearing recall .

Clutches been changed under warranty . But the same clutch is been re installed

turbo chargers leaking oil covering engine bay in thin layer of oil .

Turbo chargers failing

Rear suspension issue sagging with a consistent weight of only 200 kilos after only a few weeks ..

Not been able to reverse in 4x4 mode on incline while turning the steering wheel .

Navaras/Tritons etc are all a hair's breath away from being a softroader, they are what they are and there's a good reason they cost half as much as a patrol/landcruiser. Even hiluxes are getting further away from being an offroad vehicle with every model

can't expect them to perform the same, they are designed with a totally different market in mind

The interior on the new HiLux has heaps of parts in common with the Camry, the shifter is literally the same part, or at least it looks identical anyway. A shifter is a shifter I guess, but still.

Nonetheless, they feel way more solid than a Navara... but they do cost a bit more, too.

Very true. Its hard to compare a 4x4 ute vs 4x4 Wagon.

But comparing between the 3 market leaders Triton, Hilux and Navara... Hilux would be the go with 3L T/D but they are too much coin for a SR5! $60k plus ORC.

Bugger that!!! I went with the triton as it was Australian 4x4 Ute 2 years running. I was just about to get a ford ranger xlt crew cab, but the arrogant sales prick would only do the same deal as what I got on the GLXR.

all these ppl buying these new 4wds these days, do any of uz actually use them as "its intended to be used" or is it to be a big wank factor figure and another stereotype on the road?

how many of uz actually get it dirty? how many of uz would put it inbetween trees? highly doubt much ppl would..

4wds now adays aren't wat they used to be.. all a big hype in my opinion..

The main reason I bought my Isuzu D-Max was to tow, with the odd bit of "I want to drive over there" when I am on holidays.

I haven't found anywhere I haven't been able to take it including on the dunes etc, they are pretty capable utes considering they have a sprung rear end not the clearance of some of the wagons.

Most people don't like spending 40-60k on a car and then bashing it through the bush, same as most people don't buy a brand new SS and only punt it round the race track.

My D22 has gone pretty much everywhere i have pointed it....more than capable of the majority of 4wd'ing that i would do which is mainly beach and tight track work....dont really care about scratches, chips etc as i didnt pay a 5hit load for it. Its 4B, its meant to be used as one. Having said that i would never spend 40K or more on a 4B and take it bush, but that is just me.
