Thanks for the link, based on the information listed on their website, the kits are not for the current model.

your right GV88 those links are for pre 2005 GV's. those racks on my GV are only pro rack bought from supercheap auto for $226. as im always on a budget i found they were cheapest and even cheaper from the dealer. and your right about the tyres too!(235's/70/16's).
next is for new bash plates, these im going to have a go by myself with the help of a certain south african 08 GV v6 enthusiast who's an engineer who's helping me out with some templates!

Hi synsies and other

just attached a few photos for interest only. One is my bomb showing 2" Dobinson Lift, 235/70/17 and massive bash plate.[ATTACH]33829[/ATTACH]

One other is of my wheel 235 70 17[ATTACH]33828[/ATTACH]

Another is of my 1.6mm steel bash plate. One piece, 6 HTbolts, works well.[ATTACH]33827[/ATTACH]

I can help you get the bash plate organised with a local (to us) hotrod maker. Will probably cost 250 at a guess.

ATTN: SUZUKI GV OWNERS with 35mm lift kits & 235/70/16 FITTED...

Hi,
My partner has a 2006 Suzuki GV & was wondering how they handle (both on road & off road) with the 2 inch lift kits & the 235/70/16's fitted.

Also has the changes had any adverse effects on front end component wear, performance, fuel economy, etc?

Cheers.

*Gotta luv the zuke! This much fun should be illegal.*

No mate, it comes std with 225/70/16 or those with 17 inch 225/65/17. The 235s in 70 series profile tyres will NOT fit in the factory hard cover.

Hi, just wondering if your 235/70/17 fit on the tail without the hard cover on?
