Cheers mate, most places, not taking it to the cape, it would do it but I'm on the fence in regards to towing up there can be a pain for others.. Good to hear get out there, our outback is the place to be..

Not so bad hey!

Yea I know I took a better line & my mate actually backed up so I could take a pic & when going forward still had the wheel a little to the right which made it kick up further.. Bloody close to going over, stopped by the bullbar hitting the ground..

With all the fires we made sure the night before contacting the DSE Office in Dargo who gave us the green light.. good idea to check 1st if your heading up that way.. So much so they said in the morning if it's smokey in the area drop into the office prior to hitting the tracks for an update..

Gave the Paj a few upgrades before I came away..got rid of the custom Draws as they are just to high for my on going back problems.. So in went a nice Ironman Draw System with the Wing kits & an MSA Drop Down Fridge Slide for the Engle..
An Ironman Awning was attached to the new Tradesman Oval Steel Flat Rack & in a couple weeks a 3" performance Dump Pipe Mandrel Exhaust System with High flow Cat goes on.. The Paj has clocked up 235'000ks & drives/tows like a dream On & Off Road..

Draw System & MSA Slide:
Image
I can say the fridge slide is a breeze to use had it fully loaded for the trip to Brissy :D
Image
You can see the tail end of the Tradesman rack above very please low profile & the Awning below:

Looking forward to the Exhaust now..

Guss has been having troubles getting on and posting (but he can still read what you've all been up to! ;) ) so no-one's seen his vehicle for a while. Now, as many of you might already know, Guss, like some others, has been asked (by Creighton's TJM) to try out some gear and write 'real world' reports on how he finds it - no strings attached, altho there is a bit of pressure on him to tell it really how it is, rather than sugar coating it to what he thinks they want to hear cos he's got hold of some good gear to test!! As part of the arrangement, he's also wearing their stickers and badgework, so his vehicle looks a little different! This doesn't mean that he's working for them or that he's even being paid to do the testing, it's just that he's got the gear, and he's giving it a thorough work out to see how it behaves out there where we would all prefer to be & they want people to know if for what it is/isn't. So if you see this vehicle running around, especially if it's anywhere to the east of Melbourne, chances are it's Guss going to or coming back from testing some new piece of kit.... now, all I want to know is how do I get in on a similar deal over here in South Aust?? :ooh:

Damn those wheels & tyres look good on that vehicle!! Even on the back! Oh, and the rear bar looks good too! :)


Is that still a separate tow hitch underneath, or is it integrated?
