Re: 6-WHEELER Ute XR8

Considering it's a AUI also, it's a bit steep. But at least you get more space at the back. There's another one out there also, saw it a month ago around my house.

No car ATM but I am looking at one...
I don't want to say which one otherwise someone else might buy it!

Re: 6-WHEELER Ute XR8

If it is just a lazy axle it would be a waste of time.
Like the six wheelers of the past, they snap axles easy and get bogged on the wet lawn and by the way handle like crap.
Buy a trailer.

Re: 6-WHEELER Ute XR8

never seen one with the styleside tray, but with the steel tray they seem to be relatively common.

Re: 6-WHEELER Ute XR8

This one was at Knox Ford in Ferntree Gully as a display vehicle for yonks then they registered it and put it on the lot. Took forever to sell. It's probably got hardly any K's on the clock.

If someone wants something a little different it'd be ideal but I wouldn't want to try to park the thing!! Too long for most car parks.

I'm with you Barefoot...I have never seen a styleside box 6 wheeler...but you see the tray ones around a fair bit. IMO it looks a bit awkward on the styleside...it genuinely looks as though there are too many wheels.

Would you like to change your name to Homer Junior? People can call you Hoju.
