    Winch rope fouls on winch support bar

    Recently installed a Domin8r X winch into my 80 series on a winch cradle I fab'd up to sit behind my ARB Non-Winch bar. As the cradle bolts to the bottom of the chassis the winch sits quite low compared to the front of the bar so I have flipped the winch around so it pulls from the top, but...

    What would be a good first 4WD for less than $6k?

    Hi all, Since I get my P's later on this year, it's coming up to buying my own set of wheels. I've got roughly $6k all up and was wondering what everyones thoughts were. I probably can't have something little. (Sierra or Jimny) considering I'm only 16 and stand at 185cm and weigh in at 113kg...

    Barwork for a Nissan GU Patrol

    G’day guys, I’m curious on which accessories are interchangeable between the different models of the GU Patrol. I have a 98 gu, and pretty much wanted to know if the scrub bars, side steps and a rear bar off newer patrols would fit. I’ve got a bullbar off a 2005 one on mine but that was just a...

    thoughts on the 3 litre diesel GU Patrol

    Hi there, I've been looking around and seen quite a few 3.0 turbo diesel Gu patrol's in my price range (up to $6,000) and they look in decent shape. One I have found is a '01 with the five-speed manual and a few mods on it (decent 4wd tires, roof-rack, awning, high-lift jack) and 300k on the...

    Hello everyone, This is my first post on 4x4 earth but have used it many times in the past for research into the 4x4 world. I'm only new to it all and was wondering can you have a 3-inch exhaust on your 4bie legally (I am also on my Red Ps if that makes a difference). I know many people have...
