To easy mate :)

Are you going to keep this one lower ? Would be a good truck to keep the height down on being fairly compact to start with

Yep low and wide is the plan. Only 3" lift. Chopping the hell out of the guards to make 37s fit. Should see the tunnel i have to make to fit the turbo 700 and gq transfer case in! The seats will be almost toutching the doors! Drivers side seat may need to be raised and sliding railed removed. Gonna be fun fun fun!

are you going to try and engineer it, if so can i watch LOL or track toy ?
3" lift and 37's would make it similar height to standard patrol wouldnt it ?

Yeah iv alreay contacted an engineer about it. And yeah 3" with 37s the roofline should be similar to a patrol.

Nah not engineering 37's just the engine, driveline, suspension and passenger compartment. Then add lockers, tyres and go any where bits to it once its engineered.

Nice, wouldnt have thought it would look that good :)
Definantly drop the cab, you think your going to have much issue with the tires rubbing the chassis on flex ?
 

Bainsy

I can only drop the body another 30mm but i need to do some body modiforcation first! :D And theres no way the tyres can hit the chassis unless somthing breaks.
