Hey Buzzy.. Hey mate is there any chance that you'd be able to get the exact measurments for your custom dual battery setup. If you could that'd be great and I could drw up a plan and give it to a welder to get done straight up.. Cheer mate!!

Hi Alan, The canopy is great, very practical. Only downside I have found is if you have to lock it you have to use a small key and lock both handles which is a bit fiddely. Bit of a pain but a small price to pay for such a quality bit of gear.

apparently there is new suspention out, that has eliminated this problem, they put an extra leaf in the rear. i am also getting a lift

The bash plates are 3mm 304 stainless. Drgs are not complete yet. I have got the vibration. Had 3deg cator wedges put in but that didnt do to much. Tyres are 265/70's. To small now with the lift. I had them fitted the day I picked the car up so I am unsure about the fuel ecconamy thing. Same with low range

Just wondering what size tyres you have and how does it affect fuel and low range gearing?


JDR182

Just wondering what your suspension is like, have you have any virbration problems, if yes how did you over come these problems? As I am looking a lifting my ute but have heard about a lot of problems.

Thats cool, It took a while to work out if it was me, or the pic was reversed etc.

Yeh mate that was the trial one, pressed the wrong side. Was Ok but cause it didnt quite fit anyway.

did you stuff up the logo on the first one? in one of your photos its reversed.


Buzzy

 

Comment:

14/05/08  

I will look into doing some but I have to change the drg's a bit and try and work out cost's etc. I would imagine around the 350 mark. Bit dearer than the TJM ones but these are stainless not mild steel & they also have the logo. Will look into it and let ya know.

These new Tritons look awesome in black pearl, where did you get the dash mat. Was the first to get a black GLX-R in ACT and now they are everywhere and ubfortunately sourcing quality accessories for my ute means a trip interstate ( Sydney ) everytime I want to enhance the ute.

Thats absolutely awesome. Looking forward to seeing the dual battery trays as I am going to do it soon. Which sort of battery did you buy as your auxillary? I assume your a little restricted due to the space?


Buzzy

I connect them when the head unit was sitting out. Then it was pretty hard to push it back in with all the cables hanging out the back.


Buzzy

Pretty much mate. Only problem I han was fitting the RCA leads for my Amp and the IPOD adaptor cable to the back.

No, But my bluetooth connection still works fine. I have my Ipod in my glove box which is connected straight to the head unit. It all works well

Not yet, the tow bar hits before anything else. It sits higher than the ARB bar.
