Thanks Rochey.

Here are some clean photos - just because its a 4B doesnt mean it has to be dirty :)

And the engine bay (what a nightmare)

Just installed another transmission cooler to help out the PWR unit. I put it on infront of the PWR to strip a bit of heat off the fluid before it goes into the 'good' cooler. So auto -> primary cooler -> PWR cooler -> auto.

Was actually off the car previously so I put it back on for free with new lines and hose clamps.

Suspension is properly bedded in now so will get an alignment very soon hopefully. That and a new tie rod as mine appears to be bent. So may get a Superior arm to replace it.

:)

ha that patrol is looking sweet now mate! i personally went with the 3rds tie rod because it was $30 cheaper and the only difference was that its powder-coated blue not zinc coated like the superior, but that was also 'cause BBM was on the way to my mums house. Aparently a bent tie rod isn't the end of the world, as long as it is aligned right with the bend it will still do its job but i just bit the bullet on the $300 because of how much stronger it is, i think my diff will bend before my tie rod after seeing the thickness of it LOL

Thanks for the positive comments.

Lol cheers mate - I am too fastidious when it comes to cleaning mud off I think. One day I spentbout $20 at the car wash then when home and put it up on ramps and spent about 3 hours getting speck of mud off the underside.... then the next day went ape sht in the mud again!

Ahh well, its a good hobby to have. Appreciate the comments guys.

I got mine through The 4x4 Specialist at Charmhaven, they said something about BBM going belly up but they could still order the 3rds/BBM Rockhoper gear so maybe now you cant? That said its only $30 i guess, sorry for the bum steer
