So i am still progressing ahead just slowly is all.



Modified the front bar to clear the rotated steering box. and beefed up the mounting of it.




Front end is essentially done bar springs, brakelines, locker lines and driveshaft.



Still unsure on what to do for rear body mounts and recovery points but i do have an idea. but that can wait till next days off.

Have found a cheap set of fox 2,x 16" air shocks for the rear and when they get here i can finish up the rear end.

Its slowly getting there just all the annoying little thing to go.

Let's just say it's an ongoing project. It is going ahead very slowly. As far as the suspension is concerned it is done minus springs and limit straps. Have started running brake lines. I was going to run a line lock as a park brake, but have decided to run normal a normal explorer handbrake inside the rotor.
Can't run the stock tank in the tub due to space constraints, and also from a safety point of view. So have to order a genright fuel pump ring and generic alloy cell.

So yeah just an ongoing project, but I can see the light.

Well we are still moving ahead, slowly but still going.
Drive it out of the shed for the first time last week. That was a great feeling. Even had my sidekick with me which was great.



Ended up at 106.5ish " wheelbase. Got springs for the front end. 200/250 eibachs. And when I get back from my trip to the states I'll get a bottle of nitrogen to charge everything

Am looking at a set of trail ready alloy beadlocks but am having a hard time actually getting them from nsw to mount isa.


Fuel cell is in. 60lt tank with a Motobilt fuel cell ring. Came up not to bad.



I'll get some updated shot of everything when I actually get back home.

Have a great Christmas guys

Coming along very nicely!

Have you tried Daniel at Freight Management for moving the wheels for you?

And just bought myself a late Christmas present.



And I couldn't get into contact with old mate selling the rims so bought some 17x9 -30 dynamics and weld on bead lock kits. Just need to ship them all back to Isa.

Pics for now will update later on. But skid plate and exhaust basically done.




Still need to add some more mounts for the skid and a rear hanger for the exhaust and a 90 dump pipe.
