First addition completed today with some recovery points added to the front chassis. Got them off Ebay made by rockarmour and rated to 5000kgs. I'll let yas know how they go when I use them for the first time.

Next, I ordered these seat covers online from the wetseat, a NSW based company.
Only complaint is they took a while to reach me, but they were closed over Christmas and did say that on ordering, so it wasn't too much of a surprise.
They're a neoprene material and feel nice to sit on. They fit very snugly which is what ya want but take a good bit of elbow grease to manoeuvre onto the seats.
They offer covers for all 3 rows, headrest and a console cover as well, however I opted not to get the third row as they'll eventually be taken out anyway and are rarely used now.
The only area I see that will collect a bit of crap over time is the seat belt buckle cut outs in the second row. Perhaps a grommet of some sort could be used to push the buckles through that would protect too much gunk finding it's way down in those areas...

Next up, we've succumbed to the Kings phenomenon and bought a set of Titan drawers this weekend with the opening of their Malaga store.
Easy enough to install; just removed the third row seats and utilised the latch bolts in the floor as the front anchor for the drawers and the hooks for the rear anchor. A trip to Bunnings was required for some longer bolts. Simple tools only required: allen keys, sockets, and wrench.
Still need to install the wings to the outsides of the drawers to finish off the set.
They weigh about 80kgs so definitely add a bit to the rear end. Upgraded suspension, you say?
Also invested in the Engel Eclipse 40L fridge as well. Dual battery set up next...

Another quick addition put on today...
516699


2.0x3.0m Wanderer side awning. Acquired from Gumtree for $200.
Easy install, two additional holes needed drilling into the roof rack to connect the bolts.

Finally got around to adding the wings to the rear drawer set up.

Easy job and finishes the drawers off nicely, I think. I've ended up losing the little compartment on the right which housed the bottle jack, tire iron, and wheel chock, as the wings make that unusable. Thankfully, there's plenty of space in the drawers for such things.

Another small thing I took care of today was move the whole roof rack back about 8 inches. Again, very simple task requiring only an allen key on the attachment points to the gutter.

This is in preparation for two additions to come in the future...

New addition put on today:

Ordered from solar screens in Queensland. Got their touring set, which covers from the second row passenger seats back. Came in a black bag for keeping them clean.

Been a while since my last addition update. I've had a catch can installed...
521349


And a diesel pre-filter will soon be installed by a shop that owed me a favour.
Today I added these quick fist rubber holders onto the driver side of the roof rack in anticipation of putting a shovel on there as seen in photo. That shovel is just from the garage and I'm looking around for a suitable lightweight yet strong recovery shovel if anyone has a suggestion. Open to ideas... ideally with a shaft diameter (haha 🤣) of about 1.5-2 inches...
