I'll check with the outlaws jackaroo, but I'm sure they dont have a seperate chassis, therefor no body lift possible.

They are quite a good truck thou, Isuzu make a good engine if looked after.
I am asuming the lack of bonnent scoop means no diesel engine?
If I'm wroing and it is diesel, ring holden and make sure that your model isn't effected by the injector recall. The inlaws engine blew up at only 40,000km because of this issue. Since the rebuild thou, the thing has crossed every desert in Australia and done nearly every major track in this great land, from cape to vic highlands, pilbra's to Flinders. It's been everywhere and dragged a off road camper along most of it as well.

Hi Mate, Sorry to take so long to get back, Been up the Victorian High Country, The Jerrycan holder is from SuperCheap around $50.00. I just removed the number plate holder worked out which holes I needed and filled in the ones I didn't with a bolt and bit of sealastic. You need to remove the inside trim so you can tighten the bolt and nuts, The nut used to hold the jerrycan holder on are the self locking ones. I keep 20 lts of fuel in it and have had no problems both off and on road with it. Hope this helps.

My 2inch lift comprises of Toughdog Foam Shockers and springs and rockcrawler torsion bars, all up it cost me around $1400. and well worth it, throw in the 31in Maxxis and I have no trouble getting to where I want to go.

And as for a body lift kit I got mine from the parts bin in the usa, it cost $124.00au. I had to join another site so I could get it shipped to Australia. Hope this helps.
