Welcome aboard..

That thing is sweet, any chance of some close up pics of the conversion? I'd love to see how it's done.

Awesome truck.
If im not mistaken that truck used to be a full wagon 6x6 with tray.
Hard to get head around but yep you read right.
Looks very similar with mods and exact same number plate.

Original owners needed 7 seats but want tray as well.

Be interested to see how it goes offroad.

Keep the pics coming mate.
Defs a top unique rig.

Correct. I only just found this out about a week ago after going thro the forum. Suprised the hell out of me. I think the dual cab chop looks much better and this suits my needs.

Will post some detailed pictures very soon.

Car is going to UFI tomorrow for some more boost and a tune. Still has the 10mm pump so they are going to max it out. Will let you all know how it goes.

Is that a gearbox transfer case bolted to the diff?
It is fully welded to the casing and uses a chain approximately 70-80mm wide. Very heavy duty.

It really drives very well. I believe the rear diffs work like an open centre but uses a solenoid to lock all 4 rear wheels together.

We are planning on some big trips with the rigg just need to sort out what we want to do with the tray.

Will get some more pics soon.

I actually have a massive folder with everything from when the 6x6 conversion was done (even gasket templates) i havent been through it yet with any detail but i will do. The company was Multi drive in Victoria.

Crappy pics sorry but better then nothing. This is how it sits now.

I've had the tray and roll bar sprayed with raptor paint. Has come up really well. Has a great texture.

Fitted up some custom undertray tool boxes too. Im not sure if im keen on the checkerplate finish. Im still pondering whether we will get them coated also.

Also fitted up a exhaust cutout. The muffler really made the exhaust note to quiet for my liking. Its great being able to quieten it up by the flick of a switch when i get the urge to be a grandpa 😃😃😃
