The Most Exhaustive Dmax V-cross Modification Ever
There could be no better way to start listing the Isuzu Dmax V-cross modifications than Raqibali Ismail‘s truck. This can definitely be one of the most modified Dmax V-cross truck existing right now. You all will agree with us once you finish going through the list of all those customizations carried out on this. The 2.5-litre engine is remapped and added with Borla Boomerang exhaust to produce 150 wheel horsepower. Suspension components are reworked to include Profender Premium dampers with Old Man Emu springs, 2” suspension lift kit and Option’s 4WD upper control arms. On the front, ARB 4×4 bullbar is equipped with Come Up Gen 2 Seal Synthetic Winch. While the tail end gets ARB 4×4 143 litre long ranger tank and Hammer 4×4 rear bumper. The fanciest yet functional addition to this truck is T-Max E-Board electric side steps.
Then most prominent update of side profile are those dope looking set of 18” 9J Black Rhino rims with 285/60/18 Maxxis AT 980 tyre. When viewed from the top, you’ll find Aeroklas Aviator automatic bed cover and Webasto sunroof. Now let’s list down electrical upgrades, which include 130 W KC HiLight pillar lights, 280 W 50 inch curved LED bar, 120 W LED light bar measuring 20 inches and RGB rocket lights. The final and most important element which makes this truck undoubtedly unique is the camouflage body wrap. Finally, the list ends here.

Then there is off-road spec metal bumper with integrated bull bar and snorkel. The truck’s shoes have been upgraded to set of 16 inches Lenso Zeus Camel Rims with 305/70/16 Cooper tyres. Custom LED tail lights, LED bar and fog light at the front also makes up to the list of changes this truck has received.
Nishant Jacobs Mean Machine
In contrast to the earlier example, this feels to be one of the sober-looking Isuzu Dmax V-cross modifications. But don’t make pass the judgement yet. The truck gets Pete’s performance to remap done to its already powerful 2.5-litre diesel mill. Probably the costliest upgrade on this truck would be those sexy looking 20″ Lenso rims wrapped in 285/50/20 rubber. The cost of this upgrade alone could be more than 1.25 lakhs. But doesn’t those rims look smashing hot over there? Some minor and final changes are LED fog lamps, LED bar light and bonnet mounted antenna.
The Harley Davidson Edition
Isuzu Dmax V-cross is a lifestyle vehicle and nothing can justify it better than using it to promote a lifestyle motorcycle brand. The truck in focus seems to be a modification done either by a Harley Davidson dealer or by an enthusiast who owns both forms of lifestyle vehicles. This truck already has a lot of road presence and can attract the attention of many. That is what exactly is needed to fit for this job as well.
With that custom paint job comprising of matte black, orange and white shades, the truck further becomes an attraction magnet. The utility offered by it also gets highlighted here as such a big motorcycle get docked in the back. Mechanically it remains the same as the stock setup. Just imagine you being in the driver seat of one such truck with a mean machine loaded at the back, and it is enough to forget the world.
