A trip to LCMP had turned slightly sour after I dropped onto a rock and dented the passenger sill, so many thoughts went into protection and a lift. Trying to find any kind of cash in my world is pretty difficult and I didnt know when I would be able to give Daisy the protection she deserved. I thought I would never be able to get any further through the list untill the Taxman came to my rescue
He enabled me to provide Daisy with some upgraded bash plates courtesy of the wonderful Baysie. I decided at this stage that colour is becoming something I am interested in with my modifications and painted them blue to see how they would look. I reckon they came up a treat
Next on the list was a lift. Reading all the comments and seeing how impressed Daryn was with the Ultimate Suspension setup, I decided to get in touch with Brendan and see what he recommended. The 2" lift with comfort springs were chosen as I dont have any major mods (barwork) and still wanted a nice ride. The fitting of this was done at RFM4X4 in Wooloongabba and I will drive her off a cliff before I take her back there!!
(there is a bit of a rant in the talk sh*t thread about this) They were meant to fit a snorkel for me at the same time but that didnt happen, was stuffed around for a couple of days and had my Triton returned to me with about 6 or 7 small scratches on the paintwork, slightly rounded nuts for the new suspension and a relieved feeling that they didnt fit the snorkel. But back on topic.... The new suspension feels absolutely fantastic!!!
She rides and corners soooo much better I cant wait to take her out for a test off the black stuff
Being that I didnt want the mongrels to touch my truck again, I decided to just buy the snorkel and with the guidance of 'Dad' got it fitted myself and feel so much better for the experience. Will do a proper writeup for this when I get the time. We took a few pics as I'm not sure if anyone has done a writeup for the safari yet.
Here she is with the lift and snorkel fitted
The only other thing I have done so far is a rear recovery hitch, jealous much fellas???
So this is where Daisy is up to at this stage, I am waiting for the sliders to be completed (hopefully in time for the Qld/NSW meet) and will add pics once they have arrived. I went for the kicked up style with both the checkerplate top and the bottom plate from Rockslider and reckon Daisy will be looking pretty darn sweet once they are on
Was going to do a writeup of the snorkel installation, and still will (at some point ) but just haven't had the motivation or the energy of late. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words so here is a link to the pics of the install. Hopefully I can find the time this weekend to do a proper write up on it.http://s812.photobucket.com/albums/zz42/fridgie/Snorkel%20Install/
