:boggle: She is still going mate. :truck:
Needs a Carbie kit real bad at the moment. Very hard to start and has a big flat spot. :irked:
Had the 35s stripped from the 7 inch rims and got some 8s with a big offset.
Want to paint them and put the Exsteme Treckers on them but time and money. :calm:
Haven't been bush for a while. She just does the station and home. :cry:
Would love to get them spacers but broke for a while.
Keep the info and photo,s coming and may be some thing on youtube :D

HOPPY :drink: :drink: :drink:

You can get a 3f carby rebuild kit on good old ebay for $70 or you can buy a whole brand spanking new one for $345. Pretty good really, When you consider i'm pretty sure some ass rebuilt mine for 400 and something many years back.

mate had a troopy, that he rolled, so stripped the fj73 pet/gas engine out and popped the 4.2 in.. he couldnt be bothered getting it engineered, so sold it cheapo to me, then i got it on the road and modded it a fair bit
