I suppose it depends on what you are using it for, you have certainly improved it for off highway work.

I want to start to go camping with my kids and spend time outdoors. I live near fraser so that is on the list. To be honest i just want to use it and have some fun.
Maybe going to the cape this year. If all goes ahead.

I would start looking at putting a vehicle powered fridge, perhaps with a solar panel too.
I am surprised that you don't have roof bars, I thought all the V6 engine models came with them.

Hey had this almost 2 years. Its got long range 80l tank. 2inch lift and aftermarket intercooler. What else should i do to it.

Tyres are 265 70 17.

Have a good day.
A CATCH CAN IS A MUST WITH THESE ENGINES

I have gone through 3 intercooler on my 550. The latest I fitted myself. I would strongly suggest you install a catch can. There is a lot of work fitting them both.
The catch can I fitted was a top end unit costing around $450.
install it is quite hard due to the position of theTurbo. The manifold that connects onto the Turbo has 4 bolts, you can only see 2 of them so it’s a feel around for the other 2 which are at the bottom of the manifold. I had to use a Wera quarter inch socket drive with a very short handle the only being able to get an small amount of movement to remove the ole manifold & tighten the replacement manifold.

Hope this helps
