the Feroza is probably the most underrated "true" 4x4 around if you lowered it, your missing a lot as far as true off-roading is concerned. FYI before anybody in the 4x4 offroad community heard of Tanay Rizal, guess what vehicle opened up the place to the 4x4 community mud, ravines, and waist deep rivers with 30 kph currents
etc. Yup you guessed it a box stock Feroza. Wanna play?

yes... why would you get a 4x4 if you want to lower it?!

Anong kabalastugan iyan! Lowered 4wd - Feroza pa, na napakagaling i-offroad!
 
Ang Feroza ay evolved Toyota Blizzard, sisirain mo ang magandang tradisyon at reputasyon ng Toyota at Daihatsu. I-lower mo iyan, tiyak pagtatawanan ka namin at ng ibang mga offroader.
 
Rally-Kid - Hindi dapat pinaguusapan iyan dito - hindi ba't OFFROADING ang thema dito?
 
Sorry guys, pero sensitive na topic iyan sa mga 4x4 enthusiasts. Hintayin niyo ang comments nila Wolverine, John at Freeman.
 
Snorkel - ang pagkaalam ko walang snorkel talaga ang Feroza, ina-adapt nalang dito ang pang Samurai, pwede rin ang pang Fuego pero and brand ng snorkel ay Airtec, yung maikli.

1st Offroad Commandment :
"Thou shalt not lower thy 4x4!"

The poor 4x4! Blasphemy!

Val : The Feroza is easy to setup and many mods are low buck. You can email [email protected], a Feroza owner, for advise/recommendations.I hope you rethink the advise to lower your vehicle.

Rally_Kid : It's bad enough that you lowered your Feroza, then you added stepboards?

The guys already said a mouthful, I see no need to add any input.

We reckognize your right to do whatever you want to your vehicle, and also your right to recommend. So please respect that we have the right to our opinions too and the right to express them here.

Thank you.

Val,

You are right in your opinion that you bought a great vehicle in the Feroza.  What the others are saying in this thread is likewise true.  The Feroza is a very capable 4x4 and will outperform many of todays SUV's in an offroad scenario.
This being a free country, you have every right to setup your vehicle in any way you see fit.  This room however is occupied by a lot of diehard offroaders that feel it is a sin to sissify your feroza. (Ooops, my personal opinions are showing!)

If this is the way you wish to proceed, then by all means dress it up and be happy with your purchase.  Sayang lang kasi dahil parang binihisan mo nang evening gown si Shaquille O'neal. Pwede naman-bakit hindi??? Pero parang masbagay kung naka rubber shoes and shorts si Shaq.   This of course, is just a personal opinion.

If I had a Feroza, i'd get decent tires for it. Maybe size 31's. Kahit All-Terrain lang. Not even Mud tires (Unless you're really planning on going offroad). Tapos tatangkaran ko lang. (Lone Wolf can help you in this area) Forget the bullbar, it really doesnt have much use other than to increase the damage to your front in the event of a frontal collision.  Trust me. Maninipis ang mga tubo na ginagamit sa bullbar dito. And forget the stepboard.  The vehicle is low enough to get into without a stepboard.  You will just lower your ground clearance and risk hitting the stepboard on some sidewalk on those days you go out drinking (he he) If you like, get a good bumper or have a nice one fabricated. It's not difficult.  Invest in good driving lights to aid in nighttime driving.  If you are on a budget, you can even get the one's made in Taiwan. Cheap lights are better than no lights.

If you want to put a snorkel, maybe the one's for a suzuki can work.  Get the fiberglass copies that are selling for much less than the originals.  they work just as well but will not be as durable in case of collision with hard objects.  Oh well, they're cheaper naman eh.

With these minor mods, you will have a very trail capable vehicle.  Like I said earlier though, the choice is yours. Good luck.
Everything we do on earth leaves a track....May they be one's we'd

Lone Wolf:

I saw your thread and I agree that a Feroza opened the wilderness of Tanay, Rizal to todays offroading community.  If history serves me well, this was inspired by a bone stock, radial tired Suzuki Beaver that found its way into the Open Cut logging areas deep inside the jungles which were inhabited by ferocious weapons carriers, man-eating 6x6's, and the like.  Where only fearless neanderthals in white sneakers came to play.

Is this an accurate depiction of early 4x4 history in Tanay?? he he!!!

Alright, Wolverine and Lone Wolf, since we can't go back in time, let's just agree that 6x6's pioneered the off-roading sport in the Tanay area-- hehe...

However, let's not start a thread on what vehicle would you choose as an everyday Suv and weekend trail blazer:  Suzuki, Daihatsu, Ford, Toyota, or M35 6x6.

No, M35s cannot be lowered for street use.  No, Rats, Armark and Ride donot sell step-boards for it.

Yes, you can use it for open top motoring after ripping off the canvas top.

Yes, you can equip it with a stand-by generator to run your fridge, window-type a/c, and DVD karaoke/entertainment system.  Female attendants for karaoke remote control operation is available aftermarket from
that certain shop with a "winged horse" insignia.  Freeman may be able to help you more with this. ;)

Yes, you can buy a brand-new condition M35 from www.clarktrucks.com and www.memphisequipment.com.  I just don't know if the Phil government will classify it as a luxury vehicle and slap a 100-plus % excise tax on it. :)

Didn't General Marking's descendants reconnoiteur (hope I spelled that right) that area aboard their Land Rovers?

Ok so the Beaver made it up Tatawiran, But Wolf's adventures on the Feroza were well documented,  covered and broadcast on local TV.

Sorry Wolverine, and Javier brothers your claims will just sound like "Fish Stories".

Hahahahahahahaha!

Freeman:

I must admit Lone wolf's exploits have been documented.  I guess, I'll just have to scrounge  up a media team to go up Tatawiran again.  Maybe this time just to light up a Camel (he he) para authentic ang dating. (ulol!!) puro katarantaduhan nanaman ang pumapasok sa ulo ko.

Seriously though Wolf, get that front end fixed so we can play like we used too ...that is - Hard and Messy!! Make way for the Puppy dog squadron!!

Lone Wolf,

Your front end isn't working yet?  How long has your puppy been out of service?  Has it been over a year?  Or, did you just break it again with your exploits?

If my memory serves me right, the carburated 1.6-liter in the Feroza is rated at less than 90-hp.  What cars did you beat with this lean-mean-ground-pounding motor?  Snapping the throttle on that Feroza must have put the fear of God in the hearts of many SiR drivers. ;)

now!now!! johnq.  Be nice.  Some people like to race in their Feroza's.  Personally, Im considering putting 18"s on my Sammy and a set of low profile bridgestone Potenza's.  Maybe a set of neon underchassis lights.  Astig ba??  Then I can show it off at the tough truck challenge.
