I would say so looking at the set up and the way the aussie dollar is at the moment against US $ biggest problem would be freight cost to aus.

Cunning idea. Cant see it getting past a certifier though. Also on the vx it looks from the picks that the suspension mounts at a crossmember. On the bighorn it doesnt dont know about the mu/wizard. This would cripple the design terminaly

awesome innovation there! wouldnt that limit the rear suspension a bit as it wouldnt have the weight of the body as much to help it droop?

Might fit the 3.1 MU, but the 2.8 MU is missing the cross member...

Please do let me know when you find out.
I'm sure it'd be cheaper if we get a whole bunch of them sent over at once.

Just got a reply $ 299 for kit $ 425 ups postage so $723-00 all up that postage is a killer.

think he mentioned something about making crossmembers for those without them, at a cost of around $100
only question is, they dont have the 1998 "pickup" over there, i think the tf utes were all the same suspension wise from 89 to 01 tho
