Default due to popular demand...something about a duramax?!

i will start a bit of a build thread. will see how i go with time.

she started out as a standard 05 3.0l ST with nissan bar snorkel and driving lights.
i bought her at 2 years of ages with 24000km.
stopped off at ARB and had winch side steps and cargo barrier 33's STT fitted.
had Autron cruise fitted ( not without teething problems)
a DP chip and Beau dessert 2.75 exhaust fitted.

first trip out was portland dunes.


i found an awesome test track close to home ( now blocked off)





made up sway bar extensions

fitted the incabin pollin filter... filters a bit more out than just pollin!


ARB fitted the castor bushes and outset kingpin bearings to fix the front end


punctured a few of these now.


nice flex. i think this was the EFS 3" lift.. which sagged back to standard height in 2 years.


auto hubs pooped themselves so i reco'ed some GQ ones.


flooded the car and nearly floated off downstream on the Macalister river. copped a bit of water thru the system.

c'mon, i know there is a better part to this story than im getting. . . . . -pretty sure i know that track in that first few pics. . . . .

Turn right a few kays out of dandenong heading south on the dandenong-frankston road, turn right again about 1km down that road halfway before you get to that other road that goes back into dandy(hopeless with street names, ill look it up on google earth). . . . . i rescued a hilux there once.

Near Thompson's rd. . . . . . cant quite see it on google

Hey Vince how do you find the scrub bars strength? have you ever lent on them pretty hard?

I'm just wondering if they will do more damage than good to the guards if I happen to lean onto a side bank or something like that.

Oh yeah way to build up the suspense lol.

yes mate they do flex and touch onto the guards.. but at least the side bank can then side on it rather than the guard and or the side of the car. i have used my mates winch to pull them back out after a bit of rubbing lol. will take some snaps and post them up.
