    Your boss has a tough decision to make. Both trucks have nearly equal strengths and weaknesses. Both will definitely serve your boss' purpose for farm or hi-way use and i think the fuel consumption is not an issue for him since he dosent even care about warranties.

    I guess if he needs more space then get the hi-lux, inside out talagang mas malaki than the Dmax. Mas maganda ang form nito and neat ergos. For me ( and its not because I have a Dmax) I'd go for the soul of the truck; the engine. Isuzu starts up everytime, anytime. One touch 4x4 transition and definitely better power to weight ratio.

    my 2 cents...

    Dlim,
    Not sure kung saan ang pinagtanungan ng boss ko but I think Autoxer of Tsikot and Kotse.com installs one. Try to PM him in case.

    Memphis,
    Thanks for the input. Bias din ako sa Dmax syempre pero you just cant stop loving the Hilux. hehe. Pero mas gusto ko talaga yung last batch ng Hiluxes na solid front axles.

    HILUX - porma looks only
    DMAX - rugged look, pang-farm talaga

    mahirap gamitin ang HILUX kapag umaatras ka, maliit lang kasi ang makikita mo sa likod dahil sa rear window. baka kapag umaatras ang BOSS mo, mahulog pa siya sa pitak. hehe

    Yup, pati sa Fortuner, halos wala kang rear-view.

    Pero rugged naman talaga ang bagong Fortuner/Hilux platform. Maraming owners nga ang nag-o-off-road na.

    RE: Consumption...

    My consumption on the 4x4 Fortuner was as follows:

    Highway: 10-12 km/l (12 only if you're mabait... high speed runs takes you down to 8's)
    Light Traffic (city/highway): 7 km/l
    Heavy Traffic (Espana-level traffic): 5 km/l
    Harabas (highway/twisties): 5 km/l

    This was with the 4x4 3.0 AT, with the transfer case in 2h. The 4x4 3.0 MT Hilux may be a little better, as a lot of that consumption is from the weight of the tranny in idling.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    What in the world is this???

    A HILUX?
    Comfy?

    Its a TRUCK!

    If walang strada, then go for Dmax... But for me, the bed isnt an issue... You still have 2,500kg to tow your stuff.

    But towing requires a different license restriction as well as a trailer with papers ($$$).

    I'm fixing my license to be able to tow.

    Most pick ups also don't offer any towing facility. No coupling, no wiring, no nothing. Have to spend $$$ again.

    Not sure with the Hilux but the Dmax only has a front tow hook. Wala sa rears.

    Otep,
    Around how much is the fee for towing?

    diba the fortuner 3.0 4wd has no 2H option? it has a full time 4wd set-up? 4H-4HL-4LL. the new hi-lux and fortuner share the same suspension design sa 120 prado/4runner/gx470.

    D-max naman share it with the chevy colorado and the upcoming H3.

    D-max vs Hi-lux acceleration sa traffic overtaking the smae lang lamang lang lux sa open roads, this is the account ng kilala kong magkapatid with both vehicles M/T.
