Sorry for the delay man, i haven't been getting on my usual forums lately. Things are getting hectic around here, as the countdown has started for us to leave to head back to the states.:thumb:

All i did was use the hose that was supplied in the kit and ran it into the air box. I went to my local hardware/appliance store and got a coupler to connect the hose to my airbox. It's sufficient for now, but im not sure if i trust it for a high water crossing yet. That's another thing that's on my list of things to do. These are the only 2 pics i have. Just in case i don't respond in the next few days shoot me an email i check that several times a day.

Hi Bennhw nice pic. I was wondering how you got that much rear wheel travel? i have the swb frontera and my top trailing arm on the passenger side hits the fuel tank. Have you changed the top arms on yours?

Cheers loppa

loppa,

From memory Bennhw has a calmini 3" lift kit in his and it comes with new rear arm over the fuel tank, and also comes with replacement front upper control arms as well.

Cheers,

Scott

It's been awhile since i've been on the site, here's some updated pics of my '98 and my '00 that i bought when i came home from overseas. We got my ARB bumper raised to match the body lift, I also added some 33" Baja Claws which I love!! :D Enjoy.

This is me flying the frontera flag for the 4wda film crew having lunch at the bottom of the hill.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TtVEAjsnqck

It had 33'' muddies on sunrasias
2'' body lift
custom front bar
and a welded front diff.
It went so many more places than I take my GU. But mostly because I never babied it.
Not a bad car really just wanted something bigger with more power, 4cyl petrol didnt like the 33`s carying a camper trailer.

Beautiful Blackisuzu98
I am a bit concerned about your spare?
Have you got anymore pics would love to see front, rear and close up of the lift.

Thanks Matt

My Rodeo isn't a daily driver, plus I got the insurance on the Iroks which means free replacement in case of a blowout or other issues with them. I have several pictures but none at this moment.

I don't want a full size spare because that's too much weight on the rear.

The suspension is IFS, the lift is a combination of a 3" body lift, 3" Old man emu, and a 7" drop lift made custom in Thailand. Mine is the first kit they have designed and sold.

I don't have much spare time so if anyone wants to contact me please feel free, I check my email daily.

Thank you for the compliment.
