Howdy guys, i had a thread up before but seems to have got deleted or something :headwall: so i guess ill start again while i got time...


bit of a poser so expect lots of photos :p

Anyway when i picked the car up she was a minta 5speed diesel, 400k on the clock which i was a bit worried about but after reading around seems most are around that and im pretty sure i got it for a steal of a price for the price i have seen some

anyway hes some pics!

When i first got her, had to do the first poser shot :p



First 4x4 at a track near blanchtown, even for stock performed awesome!


Had a bit of damage, destroyed the crappy alo side steps.





Once i got it back i had to get my 3" lift in! So sussed Big 'o' 4x4 and ended up getting it fromn him. great bloke and only set me back $1095.

Few pics from putting it in, for being a complete n00b when it comes to this i think me and my mate did very well :p :cool:





As soon as the lift was in i moved quickly and picked up 6 33" toyo Mtz.

Got them very cheap and im very happy with how they have performed! fairly quiet on road but grip very well in mud!

Pics in next post



Anyway thats all for now... would love and ideas u dudes have as thats what i signed up for!

91 patrol- This is my first ever lift in a patrol but compared to my 4runner these are great! the flex awesome but still stable on road.

Mudpig- Yeah for sure dont have many pics if u really wont i can get some tomorrow. Im enjoying the height. Its high enough for me to go alot of places but dosent look too out of the ordinary.

Cheers man, yeah i like it! and as for the breakages. well if u aint breakin it u aint driving it properly... stock clutch after 400,000 is pretty good if u ask me :p


ANYWAY!

Big update so been working away a **** load but really wonna get the car back on the road...

so i had to get the gearboxs out.. what a pain that was! there are barley any tuttorials on line so i just had to wing it thanks to the patrol 'bible' seriously everyone should get this book, so handy.



So i got the gearbox of and the clutch was melted to the fly wheel! :bigthumb: had to get my hammer and chisel to get it off so i might be in need of a new fly wheel as well! will have to take it to a place to get it sussed!

Compared to my daily :smile: Almost as big as the whole engine/gearbox/tailshaft combined :p





thats all for now till i get the clutch and install it :p
