GQ Dual Cab. TD42Ti with fruit.
What is the reason for the drop down function of the kitchen unit??? It is too low to use down there, so is it set up to be removed??
I have engaged an engineer from the start.
Mine is about 3 months away from attempting registration
I have pre-approval in principle for all mods except 35” tyres. About to argue those now as licensing have accepted portal compliance engineering which includes 35” tyres
Second time round I would make my own chassis and build a wilder vehicle under ICV legislation
Crikey Moses!!!! Fark, that single line above regarding widening the chassis says a lot.. Even after reading this entire thread, it's obvious that it only touches the surface on what you've been through to get it to where it is today.. True indicator of the work (and your perseverance). I'm always up for a challenge but might have to rethink my approach. Widening the chassis is a big job in itself before axles and engine transplant. I guess the last question is (before approaching wife on my hands and knees), Where would you get something like that done? Marks Adapters (I should just call and ask sorry mate). I'm often hearing the comment I should just buy something else but I can't help the fact I just want a Patrol.
My apologies mate. Thank you. Have given me some serious food for thought. In most cases a duramax and portals is a want but i kinda need the combo so i have the portals for clearance on the property (lots of river boulders etc) and the duramax to make it a capable tow vehicle.. Thanks again Ewan. Got some homework to do and some phone calls to make (source an engineering firm that can build a new chassis etc)Hi Harty
You have misread my post To do it again I would make a chassis from scratch. Then you can comply the vehicle as an ICV (Independently Constructed Vehicle) It could then be WILDER and you write your own specification as the vehicle manufacturer as long as it meets the overarching rules. ie you could still fit a Patrol cab but run 40" tyres if you can pass lane change and brake tests
