G'Day welcome to the forum,

Certainly a mongrel truck you have got together there. How do you find the power to weight thing with the lux being so light !

There is plenty of room for the mongrels, in our group, THE LOOSE NUTS, we have 2 right mongrels

photo 1 an 80 series six wheel drive, not a lazy axel but an actual six wheel drive with lockers just in case !

photo 2, a GU with a hummer motor in it with the original auto transmission , took a bit of developement making a chip thhat makes digital talk to analogue or is it the other way around - not my scene, tend put up with this technology, not understand it !

Thanx to everyone who has come and said hi..
there seems to be a fair group of victorians on here which should be good to catch up for a beer, talk 4x4 and play in some mud.
look forward to meeting you's
cheers

went out to warburton on the weekend for the first time since the engine swap.
My God, it is awesome.
I thought it was grouse on road.... but offroad... WOW
plenty of berries there when needed, and the torque is insane, just crawling over things at less than 2000 rpm.
love it.

cheers
