Christofurry and his HDJ105 - SOLD

Gday kids,

Ive had my cruiser for a couple of years now and for some reason never started a thread. Better late than never.

Its an ex goverenment 2003 standard cruiser. It was origionally owned by Australia Museum in Sydney and came with a bullbar, winch, cargo barrier, rhino racks, the 1HZ had 45980kms, new car warranty and had never seen a dirt road in its life....

Here it was as i saw it at the auctions

It didnt take me long to sort out a few things.

I started with some 16x8 GXL rims with Cooper 285/75 ST's
Lightforce driving lights
I changed every oil and fluid it had
TJM snorkel
Allow side steps
Wired a plug in the boot for the fridge from the second battery
Extended the diff breathers
and made a drop down table for the rear door.

We then went up in the world and brought a second hand Trackabout Safari camper trailer to clean up and make our own...

oh yeah and I meet Zordo... and the cruiser went up in the world, 3 inches up. Zordo used Dobinson shocks and Lovells coils, we extended the swaybar mounts, fitted front swaybar disconnects and an Old man emu steering dampener... I cant speek high enough of the service from Zordo and flex and ride of this setup.

A beaudesert 2.5 inch mandrel bent exhaust and pacemaker extractors found their way into the engine bay along with a Unifilter

These made the engine rev freely, it didnt feel choked up anymore, and was a lot better to drive.

Bigger 1HZ injectors
Garrett GT3271 turbo (twin scroll or split pulse as some may call it)
front mount intercooler
and a swag of other goodies

SO guys, thats pretty much my baby... Its been a great couple of years with her, and Im looking forward to a couple more!!

Next on the list will be:
Air lockers,
tube front bar,
bigger intercooler (maybe),
Recaro driver seat,
some 35's if they will look ok with just a 3 inch list,
adjustable panhards (dont really need them but Im a perfectionist),
a set of Super flex arms from Superior (drool!!!) and associated suspension mods to suit,
dual cab conversion (that one is honestly a dream but it would be nice).

and drive it some more....
