I’ve had it around a year now and it’s fairly standard. It has a 2-inch lift, 31-inch all-terrains, an upgraded aluminium radiator, a snorkel and UHF radio. I haven’t had it out as much as I’d like, but Wilbinga just north of Perth is my favourite location. It has twisty tracks, hill climbs and decent fishing if there’s not much seaweed around.

I have had it for 2.5 years and it was stock when I bought it. I’ve added a 2-inch Old Man Emu lift, 3-inch Manta exhaust from Turbo Back. ECU tune, Kings winch, rear drawers, Redarc DC/DC charger, dual batteries, roof rack, and BFG KO2 tyres. The best thing about living in the Pilbara is that there are plenty of nice places to take it.

I removed the tub and built the custom tray and canopy (with roof rack). It’s got a 2-inch lift kit with 300kg springs in the rear, as well as airbags, 33-inch BFG KO2s, ARB bullbar with 12,000lb winch, spotties, light bar, snorkel, awning, solar setup running through a Redarc BCDC unit, two 120amp/h batteries, a water tank, and a centre roof console housing UHF and switches for lights, winch isolator and to change cranking battery. An oil catch and secondary fuel filter are about to be installed, followed by a 3-inch exhaust and either a remap or a chip. Then I’ll get out and use it for touring with the wife and kids.

I’ve had it for 16 years. The only modifications are a new bumper bar with a swing-out tyre carrier, as well as a colour change. I take it to Winter Ramble with Troopcarriers of Australia.
