Leisure Wheels Customs
Trick out your ride
Welcome to Leisure Wheels Customs – a new division of our magazine that provides Average Joes with great 4×4 accessory packages.
Rome wasn’t built in a day though, so while we’re working on exclusive packages on Ford’s Ranger and Isuzu’s KB, we kick off the Customs game with some Toyota Hilux alterations.
We haven’t employed a bunch of bearded, tattooed mechanics that swear a lot and play pranks on each other while they turn old wrecks into exotic machinery.
Instead of swinging spanners and trying to reinvent the wheel, we’re offering some exclusive offers through existing 4×4 accessory and other retail outlets.
It works like this: we’ve partnered up with 4×4 Mega World, General Tire, Racing Hart Concepts and Front Runner. At first, there will be two packages available for the latest Hilux Revo model. These two packages apply to all double cab derivatives (both 4×2 and 4×4), no matter the engine option.
The package includes: Front Runner’s subtle yet practical rocksliders (in standard black finish); a set of four RHC Off-road Titan 16-rims shod with General Tire’s latest Grabber AT3 all-terrain tyres; and the option between two Old Man Emu suspension systems. A one-stop fitment solution will be offered at 4×4 Mega World outlets.
Customers can choose between either the standard Old Man Emu suspension upgrade, or – like our Hilux SRS – have the high-end, racing technology BP51 bypass system fitted. The BP51 system really is the cream of the OME crop, but if you want to upgrade your Hilux’s suspension to be able to handle extra weight in rough terrain, all day long, then the standard OME package will do a grand job, too.
Only available as at least two-part packages (so you can’t buy the rock-slider or the rim or other parts separately), the average retail price for these packages, if you go and buy the items separately over the counter, will be as follows:
Front Runner rock-sliders + Old Man Emu suspension upgrade + four RHC 16-inch wheels with General Tire AT3 tyres = R54 000.
Front Runner rock-sliders + Old Man Emu BP51 bypass suspension upgrade + four RHC Off-road 16-inch wheels with General Tire AT3 tyres = R92 000.
But here’s the good news: for the standard Leisure Wheels Customs OME suspension package upgrade you will pay R10 000 less. That’s a R10k discount, so this limited edition package will retail for R44 000.
There are even bigger savings in the offing for the high-end OME BP51 package: instead of the normal retail pricing of R92 000 for all the good stuff, you get a R15 000 discount. So you pay a total of R77 000.
That’s for the complete BP51 package: the rims and tyres, the Front Runner protection products and the fully adjustable, race-ready BP51 bypass suspension system.
