2006 Toyota Hilux double cab
Weight of vehicle: my guess around 3500 lbs
Engine 3.0l diesel pickup
I saw it on the show and though to my self what a awsome truck, and thought i might as well write a post about it.
just some spec on it :
The major modifications to the truck included:
The standard wheels and tires were replaced with bespoke Arctic Trucks wheels and 38" studded snow tyres. The tires were able to run at pressures as low as 0.2 bar (3 psi) for better traction over snow. The tires are called Arctic Trucks AT405.
The wheel arches were raised and extended to protect the larger tires.
The standard 3.0-litre D-4D engine was modified to cope with the very low temperatures. Heaters were added to increase fuel and coolant temperature, a large heavy-duty battery was fitted and the air intake was modified.
A 90 litre auxiliary fuel tank was fitted.
The gearing ratio was lowered to 1:4.88.
Two winches that could be fitted either to the front or rear of each of the vehicles were carried, in case they got stuck in the snow.
I dont think it has ever been made in RoR and I think I am the first to speak of this truck.
