My Truck has been hit twice this year. Repairs for both incidents total more than $15k together.

Took the liberty to gerni the chasis down & drench with fish oil spray before ute body went back on!!

I didn't want a permanent drawer system, so I had to do something to make life easier! An arch to arch back window recovery/tool chest fits beautifully. Two small accessory tool boxes behind the arches, access from tradie windows helps! A folding mezzanine platform allows me to drag milk crates of 'Gear' Jerries, the Thumper and Fridge in & out, without disturbing the stowed gear on top!

To improve the low Power/Torque output, I've had a Gas/Diesel sytem installed, Headers, 2.5inch Hi-Flo Exhaust, Safari Snorkel & Hi-Flow Air filter for good measure.

The performance is now very good. Cruise @120kph instead 90. Economy of 12km/Lt around Town and 9-10 on tour.

The great low revving Torquey 3.2Lt is ideal for offroading, and with the old mechanical injection & no Turbo, its very reliable + easy for most diesel joints to work on.

Just fitted a Rola Vortex Roof rack... and set the front Diff with a Lokka to match my already capable Nissan H233 Rear LSD!
