Ex Telstra 4.2 TDI ute - converted camper


Recommended Posts

G’day everybody

Sit back and relax, while you look at DX grunt…..in the flesh

My truck is a white, 2005,ex Telstra, 4.2 TDi ute. Much of its life has been spent in the Pilbara and Kimberly areas of WA and appears to have been set up as a one person operation.

Thanks to Telstra for doing all the hard work for me, and now I’m adding my personal touches to convert it to a remote area camper.

Bullbar

Winch

IPF spotties (130w globes)

HF Codan NGT AR radio with autotune aerial (VKS737 network/HF Tel)

Dual batteries

UHF CB (40 ch Uniden)

Snorkle

2” lift

Front & rear recovery points

Pod (12v set up, Hot/Cold water storage, flouro lights, solar regulator, fire extinguisher, first aid kit)

2 diesel fuel tanks (mains 90lt, aux 80lt)

Fresh water storage

Tow bar

Rear steps

Recovery gear

Purpose built annex that extends 3m from left hand side of pod, outwards. Has 2 rooms. Room closest to the l/h passenger door is for shower/privacy etc, and rear room is for general purpose/living.

Double bed for when the wife’s with me. I use a swag when solo.

I also have a couple of small projects on the go, so will post some pics as they’re finished.

Take care out there.

I wanted an ex telstra ute for ages but couldn't find one for the right price. Good on you and good luck with it :-)

Thanks. I'm trying to work out how to post pics. I don't think it likes photobucket. Keep an eye on this thread for pics. You'll be impressed. lol

Take care out there.
