History
Purchased 2nd hand in 2004 with about 120k on clock.

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

New B/Bar & lights, new FR Susp & steering repairs, new ARB Canopy, new LH side tub & repaint, beaver panel, tailgate & lights.

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

Modifications

Exterior
ARB - 'Tradie' - Canopy, Nissan Bull bar & recovery Hooks, & Narva 150w Spots. Have now fitted an ARB rear step tow bar with recovery points so I don't get smashed again!
Interior
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!
In-Car Entertainment
UHF, CD Player, Hands free mobile kit. VMS Touring 700HD GPS Unit, 105ah Thumper and 50Lt Waeco Fridge/Freezer
Under the Hood
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!
Suspension
Old Man Emu workover from ARB, with moderate lift. Inc Nitrocharger sport shocks, Leaf Springs, Torsion Bars, Bushes etc.
Wheel and Tyre
Have 15" Sunnies with 31x10.5 Mickey Thompson ATZs fitted.
