I don't have any UBP on yet. Got a set waiting to be put on.

I just remembered I have a tow pack thats not standard, so thats gotta weigh another 50kg perhaps. I suppose I can take off the hitch receiver and bow shakle on it and just use the pin. That might lose me 10kg.

Is it worthwhile to stick a garden hose in the chassis and clean it out?

You could. If the stuff is caked in there tight, the hose might not do much. Inspection cameras tell a better story. Although spraying water in one hole and having nothing come out another is a pretty obvious sign - worth trying!

Tony, whats the weight of your D40?

Guys, is a GVM upgrade something you would consider if planning a trip into the desert when you need to carry lots of supplies?

Last time I was on a weighbridge I had about 120 litres of fuel on, and I'd just offloaded some metal at the local tip, and weighed in at 2.7 tonnes.

I have removed the winch from up front. I was only pulling out tree stumps with it anyway!

I think you mentioned somewhere that your suspension was still at stock height?

Have you uprated the springs?

We replaced the stock suspension (which had turned to shit, especially after the Ernest Giles Rd in central Aus) with ARB's offerings. Dakar dual-rate leafs on the back, HD springs up front. Nitrocharger Sports shocks on all corners.

I would seriously consider Shockwerx if they're still in business. Larger core, heavier shaft, extra reservoir = better durability. Another option is Tuff Dog, similar diameters to the OME shocks (so similar fluid quantity and heat dissipation rates).
