1997 GXL 80 SERIES

LUKE FRY

Mods: 3.5-inch front lift, 3-inch rear lift (so it sits level), Dobinson springs, Tough Dog shocks, Tough Dog heavy-duty Panhard rod, superior heavy-duty adjustable rear trailing arms, ARB alloy roof cage with ARB side and rear awnings, stainless steel rear tailgate ladder (my wifeís favourite mod), steel bullbar with Runva 11XP winch, 1Hz turbo, 33-inch Toyo Open Country M/T (best tyre Iíve ever had), homemade rear cargo area storage setup with recovery gear drawer, and an Engel 40-litre fridge on a Piranha fridge slide. An in-dash DVD player plus twin headrest DVD players keep the daughter and her friends amused on long, boring trips. The best place Iíve taken it is probably Fraser Island, but I love weekend camping trips around the mid-north coast of NSW I bought it about three years ago in totally stock condition; it didnít even have a bullbar, which is unheard of around here.
