Here are a few pics of my MN. It`s a 2012 model that I have had since new. When I bought it I got the canopy, reverse camera, Redarc brake controller, tint, 12v in the tub and I got stuffed around with the ARB rear bar so I ended up getting the dealer to put a HR towbar on and I organised the rear bar myself and then sold the towbar when it arrived, but in the last 6 months I have put Bridgestone D697`s on, the Airtec snorkel on, TJM bash plates, knocked up some drawers for under $200 and picked up a secondhand dropslide for $350 and then the wife surprised me when without my knowledge bought the bullbar. I`m getting it closer to the tourer I want and hope to do the suspension next year. I also want to add a winch, lightbar or spotties or both, roofrack in no particular order.

Nice looking ute mate :) '
So much more room with a canopy on the back as with the hard lid on it has the same carrying capacity as a mighty boy :D

Been a while since I posted on here but I have booked the Triton in at Ultimate next month for the suspension to get done and I have a Runva 11xp to put in as well before then.

Mattsglxr how do you find those tyres?
And how much weight do you carry in the rear?
Do you tow as well?

Just want to find out about the wear rate of those tyres while carrying weight.

G'day trouble these are the tyres after about 35k they have about 7-8mm left and wearing well. I have draws and fridge in the back all the time and tow a van or tandem trailer a bit. I rotate the tyres every 10k including the spare.

Dave is right coughy it's the offset fairlead for rope. I don't have the hook there it is hooked onto the tow hook. Thanks for the comments guys.

$750 for the platform. Picked up the internal bars brand new off ebay for $157 rrp of $275 then there was the extra little brackets which I can't remember off the top of my head (will post later with some pics) and $72 for the awning brackets.
