a Pioneer DVD stereo with four-inch
yellow splits in the front and four-inch
splits in the back. A custom box was
made up to fit the Pioneer 10-inch slim
subs behind the back seat with two
Alpine amps under the front seat to
run it all. Two Sony Playstations found
there way into the glovebox, that are
connected to the two screens in the
back of the headrests, which Jordan
says is for the “screaming children”.

With so much going on you think this
Hilux wouldn’t get driven very much,
but you would be wrong. Jordan takes
the family out to Wedge Island fairly
regularly for some four-wheel driving
and Jordan’s wife Alisha also takes the
kids to school every day in the black
beast, though they call it the hot-
wheels truck.

Not to get bored Jordan has already
started thinking about the next project,
a 200 series Landcruiser with a twin-
turbo V8, candy apple red paint, billet
grill and a set of 26-inch rims. In order
to start that project though the Hilux
will have to depart, so if you interested
in a one of a kind Hilux call Jordan on
