Been meaning to update this for about a year now.
Where do I begin... Really should have kept on top of this
Well I edited some of the pics in the first post to help it flow...
So here I go...
I think it was a set of bash plates from prestige and then a set of decent tyres on black steelies. I went some Cooper stmaxx AT's 265/75/16 at first but found it effected my gearing too much with the amount of weight I carry so I swapped them down to some 245/75/16 in BFG AT's and found it much better. I went the BFG's in the end because the tyre shop couldn't get me the Coopers in time for my trip to Frazer last christmas. Was good in the end because the BFG's out performed the coopers in every way.
Loved the look but just too boggy for the GLX gearing. More on that to come.
So with a trip to Frazer Island on the cards It was full steam ahead with a few more things like this 60ltr auxiliary fuel tank that I had picked up for only a fraction of the cost of a replacement longrange tank including a small electric lift pump to transfer fuel across when needed. I can only find one photo of it so I will have to take some more of it later but basically it just bolts up under the alloy tray close to the cab and has the filler neck mounted up high on the side of the tray. The lift pump is wired to a switch on the dash and the transfer pipe is plumbed into a tee piece into the main tanks breather. Works a treat.
Next was some roof racks to eventually handle the weight of a 2nd spare wheel and what ever else I could chuck on it.
Rhino HD track mount system was called upon but Rhino doesn't do it for the Club Cab.
I could't find any thing else suitable so I ordered the one for the dual cab set up and just cut the track to size...They said it couldn't be done and that it wouldn't fit...Pfffft
Drilled some holes in the roof
vacuumed out the metal dust and dabbed the holes with cold gal.
Filled holes with plenty of Sikaflex and used a mates air pop rivett gun to pull the track down super tight into the channel. Love the air pop gun, made life too easy.
So with a few good mod's done it was off to Frazer Island for our first time to test it all out and the first time we ever driven on sand.
We ended up doing over 700ks on the island in 12days and never had to re-fuel or stop for food water or beer.
Once for water. Our favourite place was up past Nargarla rocks to sandy cape, just magic up there.
A few of pic's up at Frazer Island over christmas. CLICKY ON THESE.
Interesting getting past Nagarla rocks but fun also.
Wathumba Creek, nice spot but dont hang around at dusk the sand flies will eat you up!
Much much more to come over the next few days so stay tuned
