    Not mine, but I did do 95% of the work. Special thanks to @03hilux for his helping hand with the rear leaves. In between my crazy work hours in the lead-up to xmas I installed a fair few improvements to my brother-in-law's Ford Ranger.

    This is what it started out as:

    And 2weeks later it looked like this:

    Illuminator LED Spotlights
    Ironman snorkel
    Bonnet protector

    Looks neat , shame he put those silly redneck flares on though, spoils it .
    But I guess it will protect the paint job , so I understand :)

    Huge improvement and looks the goods too i reckon, dont mind the flares actually, gives it a tougher looking stance than the factory look and gives you a good gauge as to the width of the truck in tight situations.

    Did it last week. Re-indexed the torsion bars on my BT50 to reset the height back to specification.

    Last week my bro inlaw and myself built a cabinet to house a fridge, oven, compressor, 4x anderson plug outlets, twin usb outlets, Cigerette socket and a 100ah battery (enough room for a second battery later on) and hooked up on top of the rear canopy 2x 200w solar panels. Yes a little bit over the top but it gives me the option to add more gear later on. Keeps the kids happy charging all thier electronic goodies which keeps the lil missus happy.

    Radiator in the Grand sprung a leak, so to pull it out requires the whole freaking front end and the hydraulic lines for the fan to come off, grrrr!
    Due to ordering a new one the day before New Years Eve when everyone is still on holidays I am still waiting for the replacement.
