picked up the overland today

has the same wood as pictured in this thread

has no sill plates, so the painted sill will scratch easily

just ordered a set from the us $140 well spent

it came fitted with splash gaurds and floor mats already included and a full tank of fuel.

Anyone with a dealer fitted tow bar?
Any photos?

The one shown in the accessories catalog is of a different model, not the same bumper.

Default My new toy

I have had it for a couple of weeks now, and done 1,000km. I'm getting 16l per 100 around town, which is reasonable.

It is a formidable vehicle, and so far has lived up to all expectations. We are still trying to work out all of the electronics, neither of us are all that tech savvy, but we will get there.

Notice the colour coded bike and camper trailer.

We had the tow bar and side steps put on in the dealership.

As yet I have n ot been allowed to take it off the bitumen, but this weekend may be the one. Son in law 2 is coming down in his fugly truck and we may head bush just to see what it can do.

For amusement at the lights, I like to adjust the ride height, and see what reactions I get.

The tow bar is a bolt on, but the tongue is removable. One day I will learn how to use all of the electronics.

Nice Pics Blind Freddie and I'm glad the towbar looks Good not like an after thought like on some cars. Hopefully they'll fit the same on mine.

Although that looks very much like a Mineral Grey Overland and not the charcoal....hmmmm

This is charcoal

That was my fear the yanks get nice factory towbar, and we would get some after thought. Like my WG looks like someone cut the bumper with an angle grinder, over cuts, not square, not even side to side. I had to take it of and even it up and trim it. Ok now since it got rear ended panel beater done a much neater job.

Thought Id drop a hi, in here. I purchased a 2012 Overland Diesel last year. Any Overland owners Id be interested to know how your "eye" sensor is going. I had issues last year that were cured by cleaning the sensor window.

Also I have a weeping power steering issue that is more WK2 wide but curious if anyone else had such an issue.
