WAS lucky enough to inherit the wagon from my work of 18 years, after this wagon served for over a decade as the work runabout. Stock standard at the time and slightly abused, itís been a work in progress. Iíve since added an Ironman front bar and Runva 11xp winch. Ironman two-inch lift and caster correction bushes, Ironman snorkel, and STEDI light bars. Extractors and 2.5-inch exhaust, Fyrlyt 9-inch Nemesis driving lights, 33-inch BFG KM2 mud terrains on steel rims, full roof basket with Kings side awning, and a Uniden UHF. My favourite mod has to be the front and rear Elockers, which completely change the vehicleís performance. There are more than 450,000km on the clock and itís never let me down. Itís taken us through Bunyip, Walhalla, Coopers Creek, all around Swifts Creek and Omeo, and a few hunting trips into NSW. Not the fanciest rig, but Iím happy with the old girl.
Mods include: 4.5-inch lift, Hurricane fenders, Alpine 9-inch stereo with reversing camera, Alpine X speakers, 2 x Rigid Radiance spotlights, Jeep leather upgrade, 5 x KMC Rockstar rims (9x20), 37-inch Nitto Grapplers, Rigid Radiance light bar, Smittybilt X20 10K winch, XRC MOD front bar, XRC Gen 2 rear bar, XRC Stinger, TMD bonnet, 4.88 gearing, rear diff lock, ProCal Module, Magnaflow twin-tip exhaust, DV8 fastback, angry grille look, red LED Concepts projector angel-eye headlights, LED tail-lights, ARB diff cover, swaybar disconnects, TeraFlex suspension fitted with Fox 2.0 shocks, 3m satin wrap, iDRIVE throttle control, Uniden UHF radio and aerial fitted, and an ARB twin compressor. New diffs hopefully in the New Year.
THIS photo of ĎDevilí Loveí was taken just after Naran at the bank of the Kunhar River, Pakistan. We started this project in March 2016 and ití almost 95 per cent done. We did this project in Dunyapur near Multan. For a full list of mods, check it out on Facebook: @devilslovepk
Photo taken near Tenterfield, on our way home after a Cape York trip. Mods include 2-inch lift, dual batteries, winch, ARB bullbar and rooftop tent, TJM side-steps and brush bars, snorkel, Cooper ST Maxx tyres, Engel fridge and homemade drawer system. Oh, I forgot Ironman shocks, and ití the six-speed 3.0L turbo-dieselÖ of course.
Photo taken on Frenchmans Track, Cape York. Mods include XGS shock absorbers, XGS steering damper, XGS spring coils, and XGS lift kit. It has been to Fraser, Cape York (from Brissie) and the Queensland outback (Winton, Longreach and surrounding areas). Bring on the next adventure!
I picked up the Prado a couple of weeks ago. Was a one-owner vehicle and in epic condition. It will be a perfect base for me to kit-out for touring. The snorkel is on its way and then suspension, bar work/winch and accessories. Ití awesome!
