Nah this is the ironman one, the winch cradle sits inside the bar covered. Personally i think that on its own would like quite bad on my truck lol :)

Well just a bit of an update.. a year and a bit on and the injectors need replacing.. have gone up to 33s and a bodylift, and a motor came along that was too good to pass up. So mounting it in the rolling chassis in preparation to go into my mu...

Has picked up a few little scars but nothing that isn't to be expected.

Ignore the obvious twist, one side is held in by a ratchet strap currently which pulls that side forward a tad.

Different story now.. long story short I did a weekends worth of 4wding and 200km onroad at a grand total of 26$ diesel.. Result 4jb1 stays, 3.8 into one of my other projects. Truck is booked in for cert and has a few little things to be done in preparation but have done the big stuff. Unfortunately today was my decided last trip in my truck until after it goes for a cert, so what happens.. Destroy my drivers door and sill :evil: :evil: :evil:
Got a spare door, panelbeater will do me a mates rate for the sill. Just needs paint

Dont follow Jeeps. It was a Cherokee that shortened the front of my Bighorn by an inch and a half. Took a weekend with a 5 pound hammer and sore arm muscles after to get that straight. (jeep wasnt much better with a smashed tail light and surround and cracked tailgate.)
Sanding your knuckles before starting work can help. That way you cant skin them

Fully certified as of today. For Spring over axle conversion, 50mm bodylift, balljoint flip, 33s on 15x10s, 3.1 rear brakes/diff swap, 3.1 gearbox, modified rear shock mount for the soa. Was pretty easy to get all of this certified too so i'm stoked. Truck flexes mint now too.

Long got sick of breaking cvs and limited on reliable lift methods after certing it for a body lift and spring over axle conversion, it went real well as ifs but not well enough for me. Flexed really well. Another 2 inches of downtravel than this pic but shocks limited it.

Sits a bit high for my liking. Probably gonna remove the body lift
