    I never tried towing 3.5T in stock trim. I'd guess not much fun.

    No issues at all towing 3T with a 12mm pump.

    I had the GVM of my '99 TD42T wagon upgraded here:

    https://statewide4x4.com.au/

    Happy with the work and the result.
    The unladen ride is very comfortable.

    The GCM is unchanged at 6540kg.

    I wonder if they've allowed your GCM upgrade because it's still well below the factory TD42 GCM.

    Maybe a bit late, but have a look at a brand new 'box.

    Some have reported they can access the drain plug with a few socket extensions from inside the wheel arch.

    Doesn't work for me though. The exhaust partially blocks it.

    Passenger side/rear of the block

    82914

    No problem with what you're asking. What it's plated at is not important, it's the actual weight that matters.

    Keep an eye on your tow ball weight and GVM. Max load on the rear axle is 1800kg....

    I pull the sump plug and let it drain overnight, then remove the filters the next morning.
