G'day all. I bought this truck recently to do up as a toy.
It's a 4.2 diesel with a turbo glide system on it. The engine has 395'000 on it but the turbo kit is only 6 months old.

It came with:

Bullbar and spotties, towbar, ****ty sidesteps, carpet full of dog hair, stuffed seats and a leaky windscreen. Also included was a new set of carpets still in there plastic bags, Sony cd player and a uniden remote face UHF. Also has an aftermarket cruise control.

Already fitted were snake racing lower rear adjustable arms and a snake adjustable front panhard rod. The truck had previously been fitted with a 5" lift and 35's but the old bloke I bought it off couldnt get into it so put a 2" OME kit into it.

So far i have pulled the old carpet out and found the rear floor around the seat mounts has cracked. Just have to wait until I can get the tig from work to weld that up so I can put the new carpet in that came with the car.
I added a supercheap Boost gauge and service the engine and checked the diffs gearbox etc.

I added a rear bar after doing a quarter chop as a friend of mine is doing a dual cab chop to his GQ so he no longer needed the bar or the sheet metal plates inside the quarters.

I have a set of 34" Jungle trekker 2's to go on but I am trying to work out if have to lift it more or just cut the gaurds to fit them.
Plans for the future besides the tires are a custom front bar with a winch and a front locker of some description.

Some pics.









Thanks for looking and comments are appreciated.

Looks very similar to mine, just without the turbo.

I like the simple rear bar. Looks good

Thanks guys.

Yeah the rear bar was a mate of mines. He is doing a dual cab cut on his so I got the rear bar and the panels out of his quarter chop. Its reall strong and has copped a flogging but never budged.

Put a boost gauge in and welded the crack in the floor up. Put some sheet metal in to brace the floor as well. Just in case it happens again.





Put my new carpets in and found out the rear section from under the front seats to back was for a shorty. So I had to cut a peice of marine carpet to fit in the cargo area and under the rear seats. Pics soon. Also put a 3" straight through muffler in the exhaust, has helped the spool up time a bit and has made the note a bit nicer. Still running the 2.5" turboglide system for the rest though.
