I also dropped into ARB Penrith the other day to see what i could get a locker for, ended up getting the guy down to $2000 for 2 which i thought was pretty good, has anyone got a set or just one that they want to sell me?

Hey guys no more progress on the 40 other than organising what parts I need and prices. The next thing to source is all the pwr steering bits. I've done a rough price list but it will probably end up costing more with all the little things I've forgotten.

Custom Tray $500
Lights $250
Bulbar $250
Engine $3000
Rear locker $1000
Diff breathers $10
Paint $1000
Batteries $400
Suspension $2000
Roof top tent $1000
35" bfg km2 tyres $1800
60's front diff $250
Rebuild diffs $360 + labour = $600?
Clutch + rubber boot $300
New fluids
Alloy storage boxes $1000
Indicators (75 series) $100
Snorkel $300
Floor mats $50
Seats $300
Wiper blades $5
Radio $230
UHF $300
Extended brake lines $100
Door light switches $30
Power steering $200
Engineering $2000

TOTAL $16,975
I can see a few unnecessary things being cut from this list as I will only be on apprentice wages next year :(

Update, i had wednesday off school last week after being evacuated at lunch time on tuesday due to the fires in sydney. So on wednesday i went to Don Kyatt's (stocks terrain tamer) and met a salesman with a few 40's himself. A few hours later i walked out of their with a swivel hub rebuild kit for $70, a front pinion seal $4 and 2 greasable fixed pins $10 each for my BJ40. I fitted the pins to the shorty and gave it a service. The next step for TRAVIS is to rebuild and respray the front diff so it will be ready to go.

TOTAL COST:
$6630 + $70 + $4
= $6704


Then on thrusday afternoon i decided to pull the front diff out so i could rebuild it when i got time.

Cheers for all the comments guys :D

went down to a brake place the other day to get extended diff to chasis brake line made up. Got them 4" longer but since then have decided to do something different, which i will tell you about later :D , so they may now be useless :mad: This cost me $100 but i will try to on sell them.

Anyway i have an update and it will be the last one until i finish my last HSC exam (4 weeks).

Unfortunately i didnt get any photos of putting it back together but its basically the opposite :D
I also bought adaptor threads to go from the square drive plug in the swivel hub to a grease niple so i can fill it with grease :D

The chassis and crossmember are now at the powder coaters and will be back by the end of the week. Ive also bought a bj42 chassis which has a gearbox crossmember that i need for the 5 speed conversion ($150). Also got myself a HID light kit and fog light kit for free ($0). I went to the Sydney 4wd show aswell which i ended up buying a darche roof top tent and annexe, an awning and mosquito net ($1250). Also bought a dual battery kit ($70) :D I then sold a set of 60 series disks for $180

TOTAL COST:
$6704 +$150 + $1250 + $70 - $180
= $7994
