Our poor Hilux would now be a good example for the Toyota Bugga ads

I guess camping is out of the question for a while now :$ :$ :$

:*** @ That'll buff out. I think the tailgate was the only panel that didnt cop it

Swerved and braked to miss a kangaroo that jumped out at night, flipped it onto the roof. Luckily the mate following had the gear to get it back on its wheels but that was the end of that. He tried to drive it but that wasn't going to get him far lol.

Its fully insured but that will take a while.

See this is why wild life should stay off the road :P

I take it when the insurance comes through you'll invest in a bull bar? and a Shu Roo?

Looks like the passenger door is salaveagble :P

Good to see your all ok and that no one was injured. It really takes a while to dawn on you how dangerous the situation was when you do it.

I know I went over and back onto the opposite side. I undid my seat belt and stood up in the cab through the window and walked out through the windscreen thinking "how am I going to get it back on its wheels & explain this to dad...". It took about a week for it to dawn on me that I could easily have been injured or even killed! I came off the road due too much speed on my behalf (about 50kph) and a poorly maintained road on the councils behalf. I mounted the side of the road and got into a slide pulled it straight then disaster struck I hit a squared up drain about 1.2m deep and about the same wide slightly off square the outside wheel dug in and over she went forward and sideways over the top and smack bang in the middle of the road!

hmmm yeah, he took the bull bar off as it was a little bent ...lol... now the whole damn car is bent and so is his ego hahaha

he only just replaced the drivers side mirror and put 2 new tyres on the back ( the front was getting them this week)

no one was hurt, just a couple of scratches ( thankfully the windscreen popped outwards) and soreness.

Gawd explaining it to your dad would have been the worse part.

About as useful as tits on a bull.
The shoo roo's that is. Well, at least the plastic one's you get from supercheap are. The $300 odd electronic ones might work.

I've always been told 'line em up', cause chances are, as you get closer the stupid thing will move anyway and you'll wind up swerving INto it :roll: or, you'll swerve into a tree/car/post/rollover etc etc, but its flamin hard to think of that logic when you've got .0002 secs to react.

Well, see how it goes, I HOPE it works for their sake, but look at any truck or country car, few it any have em, just a BIG MOTHER bull bar, and some good spotties :lol:

Geez that's a big shame!

I used to dodge animals on the highway but not any more ... your end result is the reason why.

:(

Nice!

We had 3 80 series cruisers when I was younger. Good Rigs! Just typical constant FWD issues with brakes and tyre wear.

That said your a mechanic any way arent you?

80 series are good tourers ... but they do get bogged quick in the sand so maybe a TD would be the way to go in order to get yourself out of the sand easier.

Just a thought.
