    Leading up to my final week of work for the year I was getting more and more frustrated, the issue I was having on the Hilux was really getting to me, with each passing day it was another potential test session over. Time was running out and so were my options. With the problem solved […]

    Ill tell you know that once you have air jacks installed in your car you will never look back, designing this car I didn’t really take into account any jacking points, although there are some its still a pain to jack up. With the jacks full of 160psi worth of Nitrogen and the safety tubes […]

  • ETS Drift Ute – Pack Rack Complete

    The rack that holds the BMX, Wheels and tyres is all complete, I’m really happy with how it turned out and I think it will be a really good little item to have while the Hilux is touring. At the moment I have two spare BIM Driftmasters and 4 new tyres, I have another two […]

  • ETS Drift Ute – Loading Up

    Yesterday I had a 12 hour garage day, I didn’t stop and I think I achieved what I set out to, this was a couple of hours work. My plan was to make a simple 6 wheel and tyre rack and a BMX mount so I can easily get everything over to NZ without having […]

  • ETS Drift Ute – New Guards

    In beginning I held off exposing the whole tyre on the front of the Hilux, I guess I got so addicted to that tuck that I didn’t think a guard like this would suit it. The Hilux has such a different style of front guard than most passenger cars do, its designed to be about […]
