thought i would throw my extra cab up seeing as it gets heap of attention on facebook and people asking about its details fairly often. so here's the run down.

extra cab gq built by radius fabrications:
radius fab cut, paint, tray, sliders, snorkle, airbox, exhaust manifold
3 core copper brass radiator
raslarr winch bar with runva 11xp, 2x 55w 7"hid, 2x 30w led floodlights
12" profender adjustable remote ressies with 3" dobinsons coils, superior dropped arms, rear lowers, panhards, draglink, drop out cones and home made coil retainers, extended front bumpstops by 35mm and rears by 75mm
35x12.5x15 goodyear wrangler kevlars on 15x10-44 polished alloys
vy commy seats
notched gearbox crossmember

unfortunately bills, rates, rego and a few other financial bits and pieces have put the build on hold for the moment.

importnat and yet to come and in order of need:
clutch
brake master cylinder
inner axle seals and swivel hub rebuild

future bits
braced front diff (most likely do it at the same time as rebuilding swivel hubs and inner seals)
rear mechanical locker and front chinese airlocker
braced coil towers front and rear and extend front shock towers
hydro bumpstops front(adjustable profender units)
make up brush bars
light bar mounts for the roof to place them roughly at the b pillar
rear mount the runva
finish interior off with a few new trimmings, window rubbers, and sound proofing

couple of pics of it so far:

Have heard a lot of good things about Ritchies work, and I can see why.

finally have a few more things getting done on the ute, new safari tough clutch going in, 50" aurora light bar on gutter mounts happening once stock arrives, new 2" rear coils to bring the ride height to be even front and rear, rebuilt front diff and swivel hubs, sourcing new intercooler too.

Wheels are the GMax "4-Pro". Not sure if still available, not listed on GMax web site but are shown here GMAX - Wheel Collection 2008 . Used to see them advertised in 4WD Action only ever seen them in 15 x 10.

Nice extra cab by the way, just extended enough to not look stupid.

Cheers for that info bud. Just recently traded them in on a set of incubus alloys wrapped in 35" bighorns. The offset was ****ting me off something fierce!! Liking the new look a lot more too
