- Boost gauge
- dual batteries
- ARB compressor

Cabin
- GME UHF
- Outback overhead console
- Outback rear drawer system
- Cargo barrier
- false floor instead of second row seats
- 20L water bladder in rear
- 80L Waeco fridge

Going up Cape York on the 24th June so been prepping this thing up a bit. So far i have:

-resealed the whole snorkel and airbox
-got two brand new batteries - a big starter and a 100ah deep cycle
-changed all the fluids
-put new diff breathers on
-fitted a bonnet protector
-a rear recovery hitch
-a huge 165L storage box bolted through the false floor instead of second row seats
-new stereo that takes usb so i can have music over corrogations
-and currently fixing my rear air leaker.
Started out thinking i would just have to put a seal kit through it as they wear out, but turned out the piston that pushes the locking gear is made out of plastic and had smashed. Only the best Mr ARB.

Currently waiting on them finding me a new piston.

Looks great,
I like the drawers and what not in the back.
Where abouts did you get that carpet stuff from? I'm on the hunt for some for my roof console, and rear end set-up.
If it can't be fixed with duct tape or a hammer, It must be electrical
