accidentally posted this in the ranger thread last night... oh well .. havent posted any pics here for a while..

couple pics from my trip up the cape... not a massive trip for us as it is only 1000km from cairns (home) to the tip.

still a fair mission of a trip though....

most recent mods have been safari snorkel, long ranger tank and ome nitrocharger sport shocks..
(still working on the missus for the ARB delux winch bar !!!)


dragged the desert edge camper thru some of the old telegraph track

Gday
Here is my 08 SDX Dual cab BT50. Bought it a couple of weeks ago as a family run about because I was sick of the Ms's poxy little Astra.
IMG_1816.jpg
It had all the good gear when I got it; hard cover, bullbar, I think 2" OEM Lift?, Alloys, towbar... Etc... So far I added a set of Rallye 4000 spottys I had lieing around, Scanguage II, Alloy side steps and an Oricom UHF. Last week for my birthday my brother bought me a Great Whites 18 LED light bar so I fitted that also. Man that things outshines the 4000's easy (distance as well)
Other things I want to do to it are get the exhaust straight piped, snorkel and HID headlight upgrade.

Hi mitchb,

Sounds like a nice rig you have, but if you are going to sell it, why sink 7K into it??? :crazy:

When selling, money spent on accessories is money you'll never get back!! :eek: (unless you remove the accessories and sell them separate) :lol:

hey mate ... i understand that i probably wont get my money back , but i thought i would do it up a bit before i sell her just because i have always wanted these accessories on my car and also it will be more appealing to a buyer because it already has all the fruit on it :)

the truck is great with the power thay have but one thing im having trouble with is the snorkle. i seem to get water in the motor still .
ford say that is normal and if it blows up its my fault for driving in water.
hey mate , if its the genuine ford snorkel , its coz they arent completely watertight , thats the difference between the safari snorkel from ARB and the genuine ford snorkel , the safari snorkel is guarenteed to be waterproof if driven through water , the genuine ford snorkel is purely an air snorkel

How is a Ford snorkel different from an ARB snorkel? They are just an long tube. I would have throught as long as sealed properly there would be no difference.

From memory, the Genuine Ford snorkle is exactly the same as the TJM airtec snorkle, it just has "FORD" or "AIRTEC" moulded into it. The only difference I see is that Ford wouldnt have the brains to make the snorkle water tight, like putting sealant around all the joins and block up the small hole in the bottom of the airbox.

Cheers,

Hi guys, have recently bought a 2008 single cab bt 50 , i am interested in lifting it although i am struggling to see how everyone seems to manage lifting the front end being a torsion bar set up & limited space between bump stops as standard.
would be greatly appreciate it if someone was to enlighten me as to how it is done?
cheers, andrew
