History
4th owner; Car was originally owned by a 4wd enthusiast who treated the chassis for rust and looked after the car well. Second owner was a rural real estate agent who drove it on the road around the country. 3rd owner was a SAS serviceman who fitted it out to tow a huge caravan. I have full service history and the car has been looked after well.

I've been through several sets of suspension (still swapping bits out) to get it perfect, redone many different modifications as I've gotten more experienced and was never happy with the old ones and keep on improving every aspect of the vehicle.
