Nice lookin rig, mate. I have a 60 series, that has 31's, steel bar, etc. Next is a 2" lift and anti inversion shackles, and then a winch to help me out of my mistakes.....

i thought id post an update , got a set of 33's procomp mud terrian's as a weekend only set sit have the 31 micky thompsons for every day.

got some light force 170's and a GME 3440 UHF....


today the new tyres went really well the only problem i had was 1 big hill climb just keep't loseing all power up it hit it in low 2nd at 3500rpms half way up have to drop it back into 1st and just not enought speed to jump my way up the the slippy rutted track had 8 go's just could nt get the power , on the last crack i jumped into a tree at about 40kms smashed my bull bar cracked a weld , so ill be needing a new bar soon as i wont be able to snach on the shackel as the welds broke..... good day apart from the TREE!!!!!! .....

so i relised i really need a turbo kit as i did think off road it has enought grunt, but the long steep climbs it just die's , other than that its fine, just the really long steep climbs
