Ok so the ute should go through a rather serious overhall the next 6-12 months so thought I would finally kick this off before It gets to far ahead lol
Some of you may have seen the photos in my Rocky build thread about how it looked when I bought it but I'll chuck them up here to get the ball rolling

For some reason it only let me upload one photo the first time but this is how it was (minus the dog cage) when I picked it up

After first round of modifications with spotties, led bars, 35's and a runva 11 xp winch, I also picked up a tool box to go across the back of the tray for an absolute bargain

The standard steering wheel was in bad shape and I had an old wood grain steering wheel here still in the box so I bought a boss kit and had a Crack at installing it myself (first job I ever finished usually I get fed up and pay someone to do it lol) but it turned out alright I think

Nice lookin ute mate.
Not sure if your into mud driving but muddy greasy hands and a wood grain steering wheel, you may aswell be holding a bar of soap, super slippery.
Looks bloody good tho, hope the engine issue isn't major.
