Yes the front has been changed which is good saves me having to do it you have to chANGE THE GUARDS ANYWAY THE LEAF SPRUNG GQ wheel arch is furthewr forward than the wagons this has wagon guards alreay on it the guards were cut to suit

Coil chassis will be under within the next 2 months before i move away just so i can have the use of all the things needed to do it. and just looking under the front of the ute where the front wheels have been scrubbing hard on the chassis so she must do alright in the front end flex

Well out on a late afternoon/night run today and all was going well a mate broke a CV being a bit silly but nothing major was heading home and i decided to do one last hill to end a great afternoon of mud rock and hills. so i was making my way to the top of the hill and doing great until the top of the hill. The leaf sprung front end decided it didnt want to flex out of a rut and picked up the front wheel then back down but no steering so i got on the uhf and said im broken to the boys then had a look. Turns out that the nut on the steering arm was missing and the split pin had been sheered out could of happened down the track more but none the less got straight into fixing it. Just got some fencing wire and tied it on and put a piece through the split pin hole and limped home will post pics of the dodgy fix tomorrow

Nice truck, Davo.

How much were your seats? The missus has given me permission to look around for buckets.
She doesn't like sitting on 1.5 seats. lol.

Take care out there.
