Ultimate MRT accessory guide for your Toyota HiLux

The Toyota HiLux is the most popular vehicle on Australian roads due to its uncompromising reliability and strength. The ‘indestructible’ Toyota HiLux is found in rural, suburban and city locations far and wide—with sales numbers that have consistently succeeded all other work utes year after year. MRT has a range of innovative and high-quality accessories designed to increase the flexibility, storage capacity and functionality for customers who own the ever so popular Toyota HiLux. Despite being our nation’s favourite, the Toyota HiLux is one of the most modified vehicles on the market as purchasers generally buy this ute and modify it to suit a very specific purpose (often related to work in the construction industry). MRT has an extensive range of off the shelf and customisable accessories that allow you to transform your Toyota HiLux into the ultimate weekend adventurer or the most convenient and storage-friendly workhorse on the market. Improve the everyday performance and capacity of your Toyota HiLux with the market leading MRT Toyota HiLux ute accessory range.
