Iíve had it for 2.5 years now. Mods are: two-inch lift, 32-inch allterrains on ROH steelies, rear airbags, drawers, fridge, cargo barrier, snorkel, bash plates, Rhino Roof tray, light bars, awning, rock sliders, DVD screen, and AutoMeter gauges. The best place Iíve taken it is from Buckland Spur Track in the Vic High Country down to Tomahawk Hut.
I bought the FJ brand-new in 2012 with the intention of doing some 4x4 touring. Mods include Old Man Emu suspension, longrange fuel tank, dual batteries, rock rails, bullbar, light bar and a 12,000 pound winch. We took this picture in outback NT in Albert Namatjiraís backyard.
Itís got a 5.0-litre fuel-injected V8 engine. Iíve owned the car for five months. Photo was taken at JAKEM Farm, a 4x4 park in Adelaide. Iím most impressed by the performance.
Kit includes: Audi 1.8t from a 2001 TT, VEMS ECU, three-inch stainless-steel exhaust, 4.5-inch Kustom Kreations IFS lift, Kustom Kreations strut eliminator kit, 10-inch dual-rate Fox coilovers up front and Fox 2.0 shocks in the rear. Iíve taken it all over Oregon, USA Ė mostly back roads and mild trails. Kept blowing up the stock Suzuki ring and pinion, so just installed a Ford 9-inch out of a 76 Bronco and a custom four-link rear suspension.
Itís got a 150L fuel tank, canopy, TJM rear bar, Ironman front and snorkel, EFS and Bilstein lift. Too many great places right at my door step in Alice Springs, but the next best places are some of the tracks around the Flinders Ranges. It has great range of 1500km, on average. It runs smooth on- and off-road.
Iím the first owner and itís done 21,000km. Itís got three-inch Dobinsons adjustable suspension, an AFN bullbar, Kings winch, 32-inch Mickey Thompson ATZ P3s, LED lights, LED reverse lights, Tradie roof rack and canopy, Catch Can and secondary diesel filter, Safari snorkel, Kings awning, and more to come with the engine mods.
The best place Iíve taken her is hard to say Ė so far, everywhere in the southwest of Western Australia.
