Hi everyone.

I recently sold the Shorty as it was getting a bit old. Most of you know it was falling apart and needed to be retired. I had a lot of problems with it in the end and it got me to the point where I just didn't want to go offroad anymore.

But after months of searching (and being stuffed around by sellers), I finally found this beauty!
I would rather have started with a blank canvas but this guy had receipts, had all the work done properly and professionally and it was already 3/4 of the way done to what I wanted.

Here's the list:
1999 GU Patrol Coil Cab.

SUSPENSION:
3inch EFS suspension.
Superior front and rear panhards.
Superior front tie rod.
Superior steering arm.
Superior front sway bar disconnects.
Superior rear lower control arms.

INTERIOR:
Boost and Pyro gauges.
Outback LED roof console.
Uniden UHF fitted to console.
Fire extinguisher.
Brand new 4 star sheepskins and dash mat.

EXTERIOR:
New 33inch BFG All Terrains on 15x8 sunnies.
Factory steel winch bar.
Lightforce 170's.
Ironman snorkel.
Shortened steel tray with custom LED rear bar.
Ando plugs to tray and towbar.
LED tray light and ultra bright LED reverse light.
Cab and tray fully resprayed.

UNDER BONNET:
Dual batterys.
Denco turbo.
Front mounted water to air intercooler.
Straight through 3inch exhaust.
Running 14psi boost.
Fully Dyno tuned, produces 735 Ftlb of torque at 60kph.

FUTURE PLANS:
Locked (eventually front and rear)
Compressor.
Tidy up wiring and servicing.
Pull out old suspension and replace with OME 3 inch.
Rear sway bar disconnects.
Custom dog box and tool box.
Winch.

Thanks jezza. No sorry silverstones are going... I dont wanna wreck this truck with those monstrous things.
Yeah ive got the tray sides mate.

Eddie, yeah alot more comfy than the shorty.
But im getting a knock from the front end. Bit of investigating and found its the pin for the sway bar disconnects.
Seems to knock when under flex. Going into driveways, around corners etc. Thought it was bushes but no, definately the disconnects.

Anyone know how to fix this?
I was told to get a thicker pin and redrill the hole.

Im taking it out tomorrow for a light test run. Nothing major. Just getting a feel for the manual diesel.
Still needs a bit more setting up though before I get into hard stuff.
Longer shocks, locker etc.

tim,

the suspension stuffs all done, so you can spend all your money on a 12mm DC pump, injectors, intercooler and a td05 18g


that shoud see you about 175kw outta the box bolted on.

Thanks mate, yeah it did well. Did a couple of hill climbs and handled it easy. Those knocks are still there even after disconnecting the sway bar so Im not sure what it is. Hopefully its only suspension issues....
