Cheers for the comment and I appreciate you being honest the black itself as the quality of the paint was shit house it came out all dry and cloudy so sid quickly put clear over it and it came out so much better very lucky to save it.

Sid said the same thing about the snorkel I will do that when I get a chance.

Its got 5'' coils in the front and 2" in the rear until I put the 4" in the rear, New coils and shocks to go in.

The tyres are 34'' Interco Trexxis and now 17'' sunnys with kummo 35" to try to hide some of the side wall.

New tyres

Going a stadium style are you with the lower rear springs? Or is that just due to no weight?

Back from the Cape now and the truck was fantastic no drama's and good mileage on fuel 1000 km to 139 L with 338 thousand on the clock now she run's like new. Next on the list will be new locking hub's, new slave cylinder, gear selector ( having trouble getting into 5th ), 83% reduction gears, bead lock's for the 38's and a turbo.

Here are some picture's from the Cape York trip.

Havn't done much for a while now dew to knee surgery but starting to get a little done over the last week or so.

Put in two gas cookers in the rear barn doors one each side all bolted in nice and easy for those stops on the run with to much effort.
