Westy's New GU

Recommended Posts

Well.. Unfortunately all great things come to an end and the gq is being sold as we have bought a GU.

Scored this ripper of a buy just before new years.

It's an 08 ST zd30 crd and only had 63***K's on it.

Was an ex cfa car from baccasmarsh.

Anyway imo a bargin as we got it for $25000 which is too cheap to start with but it come with the following.

Steel winch bar

2" lift

Outback draws and overhead console

Dual battery setup

And a gmv upgrade to 3.5T.. this includes a braced rear diff and tower braces..

Find of the century I think..

Anyway first mod was out with the OH console.. being tall it was to close to the head.. a shame as it was good..

Since getting it we've put in a jvc double din unit and just recived the reverse camera to go with it.

Thrown in a catch can and egr blank.

Fitted a uhf

And fitted the runva from the gq into the gu.

Scangauge is on its way.

Exhaust and egt gauges are next.

Then tilix and needle valves.

Snorkle

And I think it'll be set..

Yea right lol..

Tyres will be upgraded to a 33" tyre. Something like the km2 or the new mtz P3's maybe.. well see when there due..

Anyway. Pics

That's top notch buy, mate. Congrats on the find especially the GVM upgrade, me think you'll be the only legal GU loaded for trip anywhere in Oz.....

You want to take the spare tyre off  "barn" door before it cracks too especially if you are planning 33"s and any trips off road or on corrugations. If you need to slam it hard to get central locking working or interiror lights are staying on re-adjust the latch/striker too.

Anyway, you'll be pleased with the ride and capabilities of it.

Have a fun

But being a car yard it was warrenty.. which was lucky..

Unfortunately the repairers did brace it like we discussed so a bit annoyed..

Hopefully scangauge is here tomorrow.. then I'll order the exhaust next week..
