As usual I've jumped straight in on the technical threads with my first few posts so I figured I better come back here and introduce myself now.

We picked up this 99 challenger a year ago and did the EGR block, spark plugs and transmission cooler, high flow cat & electric brake controller, and just recently did new suspension, roof rack and decent tyres and gave her a cut & polish.

The Challenger is mainly a daily driver with secondary duties for towing a car and the occaisonal camping trip. However I could see us getting involved in the odd drive and a few more camping trips now that we are settlinginto Western Sydney.

Cheers,
Kelly & Sonja

Hey my name is Stuart and I'm from Hobart in Tassie and this is my latest addition.

2002 model, relatively stock. Came with the bullbar, I added the roof racks, tent and awning. About to invest in a snorkel and a 2inch lift will come a bit later down the track. Very happy with this bus!

Cheers,
Stu

Hey Jordan

I haven't been on for a while. Mines set up to tour. I removed the orginal underfloor storage system, it was too low to store anything useful. I have a drifta rear storage system (consists of a car back kitchen on the right and food draw with a fold up table just above it on the left). I have an Engel 40L mounted on a drop slide. This set up takes up quite a bit of the back so there is only room left for clothes in the back. I carry the camp chairs and bedding in a space case on the roof (full Rhino rack set up) with my OZ tent travelling on the other side. I have a custom made 50L water tank mounted up where the spare wheel used to be, this has a pressure controlled 12 volt pump (mounted in the left hand side storage pod in the back) which feeds the tap you can see on the left hand side. The tank is filled via the brass plug just near the tap and there is also a water guage so i can keep an eye on water level. Longest trip so far was 4 weeks to the cape and back and it all worked really well. I also made a custom centre console which has an 8L cooler mounted between the front seats to keep the drinks and snacks cool on a long trip and as there are only 3 of us i removed the smaller of the rear seats and made a storage pod which bolts in where the seat was, this carries all the odds and ends that seem to end up inside.

Hey Ron04,

The carrier is a Kaymar, it incorporates a tow bar as part of the carrier and that is how it mounts. I had the design of the left hand side replicated on the right to give me a twin carrier. I've got some photos showing underneath somewhere, i'll dig them out over the weekend for you
