Plans for the distant future.

revamping the engine for more power.
Respraying the cab either a Satin or Matte orange (yes I know will be hard to maintain in the scrub but I'm keen to try
a touring style tray black powder coat.
some form of protective bar work with new bull bar, Scrub bars etc.
and if I can ever find them black leather seats from a up-spec GU with a small Engle fridge to act as a center console

Not a bad place to start, & not a bad plan either!! :thumb:

didn't realise how long its been since I updated this, quick update (hopefully I don't miss anything)
so it is now running the 35s, 4 inch lift, bit the bullet and went a leaf to coil conversion with 4 link rear setup (need to sort out shocks and camber so thats next)
For diffs I went 4.6 centres and will eventually go a front E-locker.
the motor has been completely rebuilt, everything but pump it was flow tested and there was no issue however will be going a 12mm pump and Borg Warner turbo when I get round to it.
new tray obviously that will end up with a half canopy for touring.

whats next on the agenda, going either Fox or King remote res shocks and couple of other small suspension parts.

get the roo light cut out and the hole welded up with a fresh respray and then just to drive it for a bit and get some enjoyment out of it before the next round.

I think that's everything if not I'll try and remember to chuck it in on the next update
