    Can you get the OME kit anywhere else other than ARB and what should it cost if you fit it yourself?

    Cheers

    OME is ARB. You will save $300 to $400 fitting the kit yourself. 4 to 6 hours if you have never done it before

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    Morton, is there really that much difference in weight between steel and alloy??? To it would have to be greater than 40-50kg to warrant changing.

    Koni are great, pricey and rebuildable, Speak to your suspension guy as to what you want to fit like batteries ,winches, bullbars etc and he should tailor a system to suit your needs. Flexy coils are great too

    I ended up fitting foamcell on all corners & couldnt be happier so far, off road they are fine & they are built for touring so all should be good
