Toyota HiLux 2015 continues on with the tried and true crew cab ute format which is so popular with offroaders and tradies. As so many have found, replacement of the factory bumper with a steel bar and carrier setup greatly enhances practicality of this vehicle family.
Fitted with two heavy duty pivots to accommodate a mixture of carriers in configurations of either two spare wheels or a spare wheel and two jerry cans the bar also includes an integral towbar rated to meet the vehicle’s 3,500/350 Kg tow/ball weight rating.
All steel bar construction substantially upgrades rear end protection of the ute tub while enhancing the overall look.
Carriers lock to the bar with Kaymar’s tough over centre locking system using time proven anti-rattle innovations and heavy duty vertical support rests. Handles are rubber dipped for non-slip grip.
As the Hilux comes to market all models are without a factory installed reversing sensor capability these rear bars are supplied with knockouts for the Kaymar reversing sensor solution which accomdates 4 sensors evenly spaced across the bar width and links through to a cab installed buzzer and isolation switch for when towing.
Sensor Kit Components and Installation includes:
- 4 sensors
- Controller unit
- On/Off switch
All bars are smoothly finished before being zinc plated and finally powder coated satin black for a premium final look. If desired a colour coded finish is available to match the vehicle.
The relocation of the factory camera is on to a bracket on the LHS carrier only. So if fitting a bar with one carrier option this must be the LHS carrier.
