One of the best additions to the ute.

Wanted to test the lock up kit and transmission cooler on a Simpson trip before commenting. The lock up kit was easy to install (Even I could do it). This is the 12th Simpson trip and the 5th towing the camper trailer, all trips have been done with a scanguage showing the transmission temp, torque converter temp and the coolant temp, these are the 3 temps I constantly keep an eye on, and on ave the ATF and TCT temps were about 20 degrees cooler in the desert section than previous trips. I cannot compare fuel usage to other trips as we loaded an extra 300kg to the trailer than normal just to make things work a bit harder. On the road part of the trip from Brisbane to Birdsville results in temp reduction were just as good. So overall one of the best additions to the Hilux 2018 2.8 diesel. Regards Mick T

Thanks Michael. We love getting feedback like yours and hearing that our products help people get out an explore this awesome country! Nice to see that your trans temps are showing that much improvement.
