I just can't believe everyone is cracking their 70 series axles. You cannot buy a strong modern vehicle from the Australasian market any more. Can't wait for Chev to open up... finally get my GMC.

Here's mine :)

Parked next to the 92 Troopy which will unfortunately be up for sale soon :(

If anyone has changed wheels recently, I am after a factory GXL alloy to run as a second spare.

Or if anyone knows where to pick up a factory alloy wheel cheap please let me know.

Cheers.

Nope no issues at all only at full flex i get tyre touching the bullbar.

Had 2 inch Lift fitted today

35inch tyre upgrade next week

See how the 35s go but may go for another inch increase.

Vehicle looks pretty good Reedy! :thumb: You haven't had any over-heating issues with all the lights up front, have you?

BTW, Just a thought about that extra inch of lift that you might want to bear in mind.... apart from anything else you may have modded, as far as your suspension lift is concerned, once you go over 50mm of suspension lift you are pretty much looking at needing to get it engineering & possibly even having to pass a swerve test (& you don't usually get to drive the vehicle for that test, but all costs & risks are yours!!) It doesn't really matter which State you are in, altho some are stricter than others & some may have different specifics to their version/application of the so called 'National' Vehicle Modification rules, but if you start out keeping in mind that generally you aren't allowed to 'lift' your vehicle by any more than 50mm overall without engineering, you will be better off. And even if you do go the 'bigger lift with engineering' route, the 'easy approval path' frowns upon lifting any one aspect out of body lift, suspension lift, or tyre dia increase by any more than 50mm with a total 'allowed' lift of no more than 150mm..... :(

So by keeping your suspension lift at no more than 50mm, you might just squeeze under the lift limit without needing engineering & maybe save yourself some hassles or a potential defect notice &/or insurance/roadworthy issues. Then again, by fitting 35's you might make engineering necessary to remain legal anyway; but there are quite a few posters here (& around the place in general) who've managed to lift their vehicles up to 150mm or so & get them engineered & completely legal along the way. Just something else for you to consider. ;)

Thanks Peter

Yep i completely understand about the legalities.

Ive had performance cars etc before so i know what its like to keep everything legal! :urgh:

I Had planned to have it engineered however once it is all fitted.
