Gota start off by saying a HUGE thanks to A.J, wouldnt have got anywhere near as much done otherwise.
We werent spose to attack it till monday but the beers started flowing before the grand final and we had an hour to go so out came the exhuast..
Image
Image

Beers still flowing after the game and figured wed tackle the bullbar and winch, but the outside lights had stopped working so we had to improvise with the lightbar..
Image
Image

Stopped work on the car for the night after that and got paraletic instead. Somehow managed to get up at a reasonable time on monday morn and get stuck into it. Didnt get much chance to get pics as we didnt really stop all day, A.J sorted out the wiring while i patched up some things on his gu and then i started fitting the bits to the cruiser.
Image
Image

Got to the suspension at about 8pm, dropped radius arm and superflex arm went in easy, new coils and shocks wernt too bad. The brake lines i ordered were the non abs..so still need some longer ones. The abs module also got in the way of the dual battery set up so that hasnt gone in yet need some more ideas.

Hit the rear suspension tuesday morning and finished off some of the wiring. Then got the tyres fitted and went wheeling :D

Will get more pics of all the mods on monday, back to work for the next few days.
Things left to fit or finish wiring up are the incab switch for winch, rock lights, rear power points, dual battery, sub and amp, extended brake lines. Then need to modify the bullbar a bit more to clear the tyres on full up travel, remount the remote reservoiurs better and cover in the bullbar over the top of the winch, sliders/brushbars and rear bar.

Thanks, bought it to enjoy it and be able to get away more so that's what I'll do. Not worried about scratches but will try and show some restraint with this one. Learnt an expensive lesson with the navara.

Couple days off now, I'll get some more pics and hopefully do some more work to it.
