Including cable tied shackle I see. I can confirm these pins undo whilst driving, I lost one in the high country. Note: If anyone finds a yellow bow shackle pin in the high contry area, please PM so I can arrange to have it returned.
Very nice looking 76, good list of mods coming along also.
Haha, yep zipped it on; have been lucky so far - the only time I lost the whole thing was when I forgot to do it up after tethering the dog to it at a campsite; found it a bit trampled on the road out of Dungog hahaha.
Icom installed! Channel 3 is clear and creepier than ever ;-)
Got to test out the new suspension up Lidsdale last weekend, pretty happy with it - rides super soft and tall.....although the front is now noisy (ARB claim coils are very hard and thus noisy when they grab/stick) giving it another few hundred kays before taking it back if it hasn't gone away; sounds like a cracking gumtree branch going up driveways
I keep hearing mixed emotions when it comes to bigger tires on the standard rims. Was interested to know.
They're worth a stack of money in saying that. I like black steel rims and still can't believe I sold the gxl rims for as much money as I did.
I'll be sure to wave if I see you! I'm sure we won't miss each other.
Pretty happy with the icom so far actually not as hard to use as I was lead to believe. still getting the hang of what it can do vs my old uniden hand held. defiantly good having a good uhf and a spare hand held should I need it.
Yeah, I love the gxl rims and saw that BFG make a 33inch tyre in 255/85r16 which is legally allowed to be fitted to a 7inch wide rim. Just not sure how the slightly narrower tyre would feel on road. a lot of people find the 285 tyres make the 70's feel a lot more stable.
Plenty of time to think about it those my 265/75r16 duratracs still have plenty of life in them.
