    Hey all,

    A quick showing of my mild triton build which I bought in October.
    My days of crazy weekend warrior driving ended over a decade ago and I set this up to be a good compromise between daily driver and tourer/caravan tug with some moderate weekend work thrown in.


    Accessories as follows :
    40mm lift in the front, 50mm 300kg constant load springs in the back with pedders track Ryder's all around.
    Csa Steel wheels... No more scratches!
    BFG all terrains, 265/65/17
    TJM side steps
    TJM wedge tail snorkel
    Ironman bullbar largely due to it having the nicest shape for this model
    TJM rear bar
    Runva 11xp winch
    Ironman canopy
    Stedi x-type spotlights
    Alloy flat rack to suit roof top tent.
    UHF
    Engel Fridge
    Compressor and 9 litre tank

    With factory diff lock and the above pieces it's not a bad unit for mild offroad work and still quiet and comfortable on road. I don't see much else on the cards for it at this point, it's done 11,000 kays and other than the roof rack killing the fuel use and making a lot of wind noise it's turned out really well.

    I'll post a couple of pics, sorry not much in the way of action shots yet as I mostly go solo at the minute but I'll endeavour on the next outing to get some of it at work.

    How’s the roof rack got fuel economy? I’m pretty happy still pulling 700ish Km a tank on 31s and don’t technically need one for work. (Would like one for shovel, boys trips etc)

    Looks ripper by the way man, these Utes look solid with a little bit of love.

    The roof rack took it from 10L per 100kays to 11.2 on its own with no other mods or even stuff in or on the rack.

    Since then the lift, bullbar, winch, steel wheels and all my tools in the back and the ones on top have taken it to 11.5L per 100. Adding the accessories never really has a cumalitive effect on economy and I haven't taken the rack off to get a figure with all other mods except the rack which may not actually reduce it much at all but it certainly made the biggest single difference

    Looks sweet!
    Most of the time this is all you need (and more) to tour and to go to places most other vehicles will not.
    You will certainly have heaps of enjoyment for many years to come.

    It really is capable enough to do touring and even some semi exciting weekend trails without the downsides sometimes associated with big setups.

    Keeping it simple is always the best way. Mitsus are underrated very capable vehicles.

    You're right, they're actually not a bad drive and far better priced than many. They don't have much bogan appeal.

    Which Ironman bullbar did you go with?
    Had a look at a few but can't see the one you got.
    Nice rig tho.
