My daihatsu rocky

Unread post by kalla20 » September 8th, 2013, 9:13 pm

Thought it might be time I put up a build and my Rocky,

Some background, I got the car off my old man a couple months before my 18th for a first 4wd it was a bit neglected and needed some tlc but was still in pretty good shape.

The car is a 1994 2.8 Turbo diesel factory intercooled, with a coil rear and ifs front.

What I've done so far:
Full respray of original colour
New set of sylverstone 265/70/15
Resprayed sunny rims
Hid spotties
Uhf gme and CB
Led interior lights

Currently replaced the door trims and building a roof console,

Future mods:
Rear draw system
Reverse/camp lights
New driving lights (old ones broke)
Roof rack
2" lift
31 or 32 Muddies (probably just for play)
Build some sliders instead of the alloy steps.

There isn't too many photos at the moment but more will come as the build progresses.

So got some more stuff done, mainly just carpeted the rear draw, just waiting on runners to finish it, I also got one of my camp/reverse lights wired up. Ill still put another one up just gotta buy some more wire and a three way switch.

Also got some stuff for my dual battery set up, got the battery some free wire an isolator and an inverter, I'm also going to by a battery charger for when there's power. And eventually a solar panel and regulator.

I also went out for a play to the local state forest but I haven't got any photos of mate yet so ill post some up when I get em.

Well been a bit slack to update, been away on holiday and also went for a run through wombat state forest which was a great weekend away.

So far I've finished my rear draw, put my other rear light on, and bought myself a birthday present, some new xray vision lights.
The lights are awesome and very happy with them.

I've got a few pictures but most are on the camera so I still gotta get those ones on the computer.
Here's the photos I have so far.

So after lots of looking around I finally decided on xray vision 160 lights, really happy with them, have been running the halogen version but am putting the hid kit in soon, which is actually cheaper then buying the hid lights straight out.
I'm also planning on buying a led light bar soon too.
