IVC, The rear bar is from Oppisite Lock and i think from memory it was around the $2000 mark with spare tyre and Jerry can holders, it was the cheaper then the Kaymar bar though it doesnt havre the tpw bar fitted in it but that was of no concern to me cause i already had one.

MQ patrol, nah mate that was about as far as i got it was just too soft and the troll sank, but hey cant blame a man for trying rite :D

mudzilla is a quad bike tyre and a 4by tyre

it's pretty much a copy of the bias claw, only with better sidewalls.. and they're 13.5 wide instead of 12.5 from what i've found


I was speaking to a sales rep for maxxis a while back, and he was saying that the maxxis mudzillas cant be sold in the US due to copyright reasons.. apparently MT took them to court over it

gimme a creepy crawler any day !

MAte i do beleave the enginr rebuild cost me all up $4500 thats with a new clutch and radiator, mind you Nissan did pay 80% of the total, yeah rite:angryfir:
the thing that annoyed me was i got the engine rebuild at Nissan in Perth (they will remain nameless as the service was s**t PM me if you reall want to know) on the way to Melb at PT Agusta 5th gear packed it in, there is anonther $2500 Mr nissan paid for parts and a new MAF at the same time one would think they would replace that as a part of the rebuild. have replaced it again since then and its on its way out again, and no im not using a oil type filter.

oh yeah they are Maxis Mudzilla at 13.5, everyone has thier prefrence and i have had no problem with them as of yet, touch wood. they were good for the price at $800 for the four on rims and about 95% tread left, cant complain about that.

hey mate how do the 35's go were you are fully flexed?
Yeah they scrape a little on the rear inner guard but nothing to be concerend about, i should look at getting a body lift but i dont think it can be done with air bags on both sides

New Patrol

Well folks, i finally got rid of the ol' ZD30 and got me a 2005 GU IV 4.2. It came with the winch bar and Warn winch and Cargo barrier :bigthumb:
I have done some stuff to her already, HID head lights, HID spot lights, New stereo and UHF CB (all from the old patrol Have not tried the old OL rear bar yet) and a 3" exhaust, bonnet protector, UAE tail lights, tinted windows and lots and lots to come, hopefuly a 3" lift just before Chrissy. And of course some more Patrol 4X4.com stickers. Now where did I see that thread......






Oh by the way i will be in Wagga Wagga from 1 Oct-28Nov then possibly up to Canberra for a while, so keep a eye out and give us a wave if ya see me around
