Here's my new toy. Early days yet but I have quite a few jobs planned. Intention is for it to be the family tourer.

I've recently added flexi flares, Bridgestone AT 265/70/16s, Nite Stalker spotties and Rhino racks.
This photo was taken on a salt lake along the French Line during our Birdsville Races/Simpson Desert trip.
Rear shocks are absolutely shagged so any recommendations for suspension lifts will be appreciated!

Hey Toobs,
I sourced my rear springs / shocks from Suspension Supplies Australia. They've done alright so far, provided a good amount of flex (I think there's a pic in this thread showing the rear flex - otherwise it's in my thread in the tourer section)
My only real gripe would be that the rebound can be a bit harsh on speed humps - though that could just be a sign that i should maybe slow down a bit more over them :lol:

Nice looking Jack Claypot. Are they 33" you're running?

Thanks Salty. Yep, running 33" tyres, currently 255/85 16, but also will take 285/75 16 tyres.

Bfg km2 are the current treads. Need to have landcruiser 80 series offset rims. 16x8 is whats on it, however those 255's will go on 7" rims. No scrubbing at th rear, and a little on the inner of the front guards, but a body lift is next for that extra littlebit of clearance, as i like my t bars fairly soft.

G'day all...

Been out of the 4wd game for awhile

I owned a BJ42 Landcruiser with a turbo, big tyres, twin lockers and winch and sold it many years ago

When I first bought her

Just before I sold it
Image


So anyways back to the Jackaroo
Its been my wifes car for the last 6 years or so but we just got a Ford Territory........Rather than sell the Jack I figured we may aswell keep it for a play thing and hobbie for me

This pic was featured in the readers ride pages of 4wd Monthly when she first got it..
Image

As it is now with just 2inch lift and Bar
Image


Plans are basic as I want it to be a cheap hobby, some bigger mud tyres, winch and maybe a body lift

Fitted a new clutch and solid flywheel this week. Also fitted a snorkel and raw 4x4 shocks and king springs.
I'll post some photos tomorrow.

Cheers,

Here's the new snorkel and 2" lift.

Currently have AT Yoko's at 30.5", will replace with 33" MT or AT depending on the budget.

Pretty popular tires there BJ42, mine had the same style fitted when i purchased it.

Snorkel looks good Salty, i really should get round to finishing mine at some point. Starting to look a bit funny with duct tape covering the gaping hole in my guard :lol:

This is my Jackeroo.

I scored this wagon for $2500 a few years ago with about 300,000kms always service and running perfectly, bargain i reckon.

I built a fold out bed in the back with draws and put curtains in. It's great for camping, but I plan to lift it, put bigger mud tyres and a winch for some more serious stuff.
