Isuzu dmax is an underdog in pickup truck division as it is usually overshadowed by the famous 'hailak' but all thing considered, go for if you want a hassle free workhorse pickup truck that serve it purposes.
I usually use my pickup truck to carry different kind of load from fresh veggies, durians and even palm fruit with original suspensions!!
