Added 1 inch spacers to my 2inch lifted front springs today, also added mallet head bumpstops in a bid to gain a bit more clearance for my 31s. I was going to do gojeeps shock extension trick too but when i unbolted the shocks i found they bottom out only 1/2 inch from the lowest droop position of the factory lower control arms, so i just used longer (grade bolts and 1/2 an inch of washers instead.

Also finished plumbing up the snorkel, man i wish i bought an Airflow, the pipeing of the safari rip off snorkel sits in a very vulnerable position IMO especially due to my trimmed inner guard. Im gonna have to make another bit of a sheild so that the piping is fully covered.

Cheers, but I'm just going to remove the "obstacle" of the barrel and wire in a toggle switch and starter button. Already got the switches and button.

I was thinking a 3 position toggle switch - up = ON, middle = OFF, down = ACC. Then a momentary push button for starter. I'll probably throw a kill switch in there somewhere for a bit of protection, but given the thing only ever goes out on 4WD excursions these days, I won't be in a rush to do it.

I knocked together a cradle for my trolley jack that supports a 242 which makes life easier considering their odd weight balance....

Why you live so far away from me JJ! Lol

Would have made life easier. Had to call a mate to come over for a second set of hands so I didn't drop it on my head. Got it all sorted though.
