Bought one of those too. I also pick it up on Saturday. Got if for a steal. Full offroad camper with everything bar a shower and battery system. Auction ended on mothers day so I guess everyone was too busy to bid. And after buying them I still had enough cash left over to buy a cheap work car, so the patrol doesn't cost me a fortune in fuel. I'm very happy with my decission to sell. I can now concentrate on the new gu and the misus is happy she doesn't have camp in a tent. Happy wife, happy life.

Hi All,

Took the old girl out for her maiden voyage today. Not wanting to tackle anything to difficult as i was the lone truck, I took my family for a casual drive up too Glasshouse. The suspension is shaged but it still performed alright. I'm still yet to decide whether to colour code the rear bar as I had scraped it a couple of times and it already has a 2" lift and I'm not planning on going much higher.

Thanks Herbs,

The 4.5 does everything with ease. mind you it is an auto and has a factory rear diff lock. The main thing I like best about the 4.5 is that there is no more bunny hopping. I hated the fly by wire in the 2.8.
cheers
Troy
