General Comments:

I love my 4X4 Hilux Dul Cab.

We live in Melbourne, and for our holidays we took a Camper Trailer and two children to the Outback SA, NSW, QLD.

Tyres were a big expense, but I run Discover S/T Cooper tyres that come with a factory 50.000 Km guarantee. and still have plenty of tread. Will definitely get more Km than 50.000Km.

Run a 60Lt Engle fridge with two 6v batteries, charged with a solar panel and a car battery.

Can any one help me? I am after a repair manual for this 1999 4X4 Hilux?
