The Toyota Hilux has long been known as one of the toughest, most rugged 4x4s on the market but UK conversion specialists Project Thirty Four believe they can make it even stronger.

The Toyota Hilux

Project Thirty Four is a Midlands-based company, with more than twenty-five years’ experience of building off-road utility vehicles for use in the most extreme conditions.

When looking for a strong, solid base for its projects, Project Thirty Four looked no further than the Hilux.

One such project, the Hilux Extra Cab Proto, has been fitted with new suspension and damping system to provide higher ground clearance and a smoother ride quality, even in the most challenging of terrains.

Underbody protection, a rear step tow bar and heavy duty tyres are also included in the package combined with a state of the art, one-off rear body kit.

Steve Gaunt of Project Thirty Four said: “We use Hilux because it is the benchmark. There is no fragility; it has proved itself over decades of use and evolution.

“Our company test teams go to Africa and Iceland each year to appraise the vehicles in volatile environments and the reason for most of our new AWD vehicles being Toyotas is their established reliability.”

Gaunt is also impressed with the get-up-and-go attitude of the Hilux: “We’ve found that a Toyota is always ready to embark on a 10,000-mile trip with just quick levels check, where with other brands you might need to be a little more cautious”

Built to strict European Union standards, Project Thirty Four’s Hilux conversion has been endurance tested over more than 10,000 miles in two continents.

Conversion makes the vehicle more useful to a broader range of commercial operators such as builders and farmers thanks to its better accessibility and bigger load area.

The latest Toyota Hilux is available now from dealers with prices starting at £17,510 – contact us today for more details.
