Isuzu’s new D-Max was a serious contender for our overall 4×4 Pick-up Of The Year; it’s going to be in demand, that’s for sure. The guys at Up Country have some interesting accessories available for this new model. One thing pick-ups ‘suffer’ from is the fact that the suspension has to work when the vehicle is empty and fully loaded, so we were particularly interested in the air suspension kits that they have available at Up Country. The kit comes from MAD, there are no steel springs, only two air bellows installed with existing springs ensuring that the car can be adjusted to meet the driver’s needs – hard or soft spring action, high or low; increased comfort through optimum auxiliary air suspension. This can be operated easily from the dashboard while driving. The basic air suspension kit for the D-Max starts at only £294 (plus VAT) up to £757 (plus VAT) for the automatic version.
Up Country also stocks a very good-looking, German built, Road Ranger truck top, available for both the double cab and the extended cab models. The top is made using the compression process, not as hand-laid glassfibre and comes with a two-year warranty. Prices start from £1379 (plus VAT). Up Country has an excellent range of pick-up goodies, all very clearly explained on the company’s comprehensive website www.upcountry4x4.co.uk.
