Hey people,
Typical long time browser, few time poster.. :)
A few years back I bought my first 4x4, a GQ shorty... Built it up from a stocker
Here is the old girl



As much as I loved that shorty it was time for something a little newer, bigger and better on fuel...

Picked up this 3L auto GU IV at a great price with log books as a second owner




Drove her stock for a while and then the mods started happening

Went with a 3.5" lift (Flexy coils), stretched it out and measured up some shocks to suit, drop radius arms and some 33's initially

Then some 35's went on :)





Got rid of the old leaky intercooler :) Chinese everything, just stuff I had lying around so I'll see how it holds up if not I'll upgrade to a better IC setup



Also forgot to mention NADS install if course :)

Up next is a front locker, lighting, draws and dual batteries

Feel free to ask any questions

Did you notice a difference at all from the 33's to the 35's??

Honestly off road a little, but only because the 33's were pretty worn.. Otherwise I just love the look of them, on road they brought brought my fuel consumption up about 2L/100kms
But I would never go back to 33's haha

Nice mate, but why did you install the shocks upside-down?
