remote diff locks suck..... just not strong enough. just got them permantly locked front
and rear. cant wait to get dig and rear steer. put a few holes in tyres and now they grip so much better. bags out on rocks and graps onto them

built a rock course in shed. fridge and tunes is in very handy reach
easier and cheaper to fix the creeper than the patrol
but not as much fun. a patrol body for it would be awesome

if someone knows where i can get one let me know

well im running no sway bars at all at the moment. due to the factory sway bar disconnect
i need a mod done to allow that to be re insatlled and for it to allow full flex when disconnected
modification for front drive shaft clearance was also done.

my upper rear trailing arm hits my aux fuel tank and doesnt allow full drop on that side so i will have to get a bent one made up to suit.

does ride better than it did before even with no sway bars. just cant drive it like i stole it.lol.
