hello guys n gals
my name is ben and i have just signrd on
so i thought i should introduce myself
MY current weapon is a 1999 model 105 series landcruiser
The big girl has a 4"suspension lift with tough dog adjustables and an in cab adjustment kit. IT has front and rear arb diff locks, a modified alloy front bar to suit a xp9500 winch in a custom cradle. IT is a 1hz diesel with a dts turbo kit and 3" custom exhaust, it has an adjustable boost controller set at 12 psi, it also has a pyro guage just after the turbo.
Moving inside it has had the standard seats removed and a set of gxl seats fitted. between the seats is a huge custom made centre console. next is a custom roof console housing a uhf radio.
IN the rear is a custom set of rear drawers and a cut down cargo barrier . out the back is a custom rear bar with twin kaymar arms for spare tyres.
UNfortunately i cant claim responsability for any of this as i bought it this way.
SINCE buying it i have fitted a set of alloy wheels with mickey thompson mtz,s at 315/75/16. i also fitted superior engineering draglink and tierods afterbending the standard units first time out. i also fitted a new stereo after driving the big girl home from sydney with no music at all.
JUST after we got this home she who must be obeyed just happened to drop into trackabout trailers and fell in love with a offroad deluxe camper with a heap of fruit on it so we had to have that .
so thats what i drive now . previous trucks have been a 80 series poverty pack that i pretty much beat to death out at the springs. a lovely old 60 series which i almost wish i still had , and my first 4x4 was a diesel hilux built up to travel until number 1 son arrived and ruined all my plans.
future list of mods are some lower diff gears to compensate for the 35,s and an intercooler to settle the egt,s when towing
THE wife and i have two children and we enjoy camping and wheeling. not really into the beach or mud holes , but pretty much anything else goes .
Anyway thats it for know . hope to get to know a few local people and get out n about soon bye for know
