Stefanos Triton Mods!!!!

Postby stefanos on Mon Sep 20, 2010 3:09 pm

Hi all!!!
Here,I'll show you a few modifications, I've done to my Triton.

This was the the first place of my winch,but I don't like it,too much down and dangerous for my car.

So,I desided to install it to another place.I made a new plate with 6mm and 8mm steel

Thanks mates!!!!I think that you like my job!!

Sam........the shocks are Amada extreme with extra subtank,especially for Tritons.The front are height adjustable.I don't have install the rear yet.If I'll install them,I'll post pics.

That's about as far as I got with a stabilizer and then started to loose interest due to the prob with our
ute :roll: but figured hooking it onto the steering rack wasn't going to be easy at all . :?

stefanos, I contacted Lin Lee and will be getting a set of the shocks soon.

Like to find out from you if you have the dimension of the bash plate set. My Thai-made bash plate is giving up and I'm looking to get a custom set done and your new set looks lovely!!

Can I also check with you, on the pic showing your rear shocks, what are the wiring for the connectors hanging above the rear diff for? My triton have 3 connectors there that is not hooked up and like to know what to do with it..
