Hilux Off Road Setup for 4WD Action - V1

 

Our Gen 8 Hilux Off Road Setup for 4WD Action

For our first ever trip with 4WD Action, we had to make sure the Hilux was ready to take off road. We were told that on our first trip we would be exploring Fraser Island, so we knew we didn’t have to go all out with accessories. We mainly use the Fulcrum Hilux as a test vehicle when it’s not being filmed or showcased at events. So, our Hilux already had most of the suspension already sorted. 

 

East Coast Bullbars

We are currently testing a range of bullbars supplied by East Coast Bullbars, to be supplied and installed by all our Fulcrum stores. We installed an Alloy bullbar onto our Hilux and are extremely impressed with the build quality, it was also impressive to feel how light the bar is!

SuperPro Adjustable 4WD Control Arms

When you get a lift kit installed, you deserve the best. Why do half the job correcting your wheel alignment with a control arm that only offers static caster correction? Get the job done properly with SuperPros fully adjustable 4x4 control arms! Our arms come with complete camber and caster control. Designed to give your 4WD the best wheel alignment settings and increased clearance. They are built tough in Australia using high strength, OE grade Aussie steel.

 

SuperPro Adjustable 4WD Sway Bars

There are many reasons, however the prime reason a bar is fitted is to maintain maximum tyre contact with the road. Suspension systems are designed to vary the angle of the wheel and contact patch as a vehicle travels along the road. The optimum contact patch is achieved with the wheel in the vertical position. Braking, body roll, body yaw, squat and dive all cause the shift in contact patch.

SuperPros superior manufacturing and technological expertise ensures better car performance and safety when cornering. SuperPro sway bars ensure that the load is distributed evenly over your tyres delivering longer tyre life and a better grip leading to a more comfortable driving experience.
