I've just been trawling eBay for letters to put on the front like you have on yours... I really like that!

Smashing down the expressway running late for a supplier meeting I heard a weird bang noise... battery symbol on the dash lit up and the aircon went hot.



As luck would have it I was right at and exit and rolled down it to find a electricians shop just a short 150m push up the road, new alternator fitted and back on the road 20 minutes later !!

lately there has been a bit of belt squeal on cold start up,was gunna check the belt tension tomorrow.

Guess the squeal was due to the seized bearing in the pulley.

Expensive way to go about re-tensioning the belt but its all good now, new alternator has a solid pulley.... no bearing.

Test fitted the wheels today and I’m really happy with how they look . Expected rubbing on tight turns but other then that no lift put on to it yet . Just purchased a proper hot air gun to melt the liners . The one I had wasn’t good

Aren’t they illegal? As they protrude outside of the mudguards .
They would throw debris off the road onto the cars behind you ?

The Australian rules are very strict, for example no spacers, offset change restricted, track change restricted etc.

Other countries in Europe are even more strict, Belgium for example doesn't allow any changes from standard.

A bit freer in the UK, the tyres must not protude beyond the wheel arches, looking down from above you can have the tyres protude, but no tread must be visible.

Although lots of people ignore the rules regardless of country.

Installed a full Wild Dog suspension. 41mm Foam Cell front shocks and 40mm Adjustable Foam Cell in the rear.

With an approximate lift of 35-40mm, the standard 255/65 tyres looked a little small, so upgraded them at the same time to 265/65 Dunlop Grandtreks

wired the amps today, damn violent is all I can say. Prolly a bit too much for the small extra cab but is amusing watching the bonnet bounce to Ice-t !!.

End of the road though as the Nav is up for sale as a new Ranger is coming to replace it.
