    Rusty's GUIV-Upgrade

    Well as most of you know i sold the Old SWB to a young bloke from North QLD. It was sad to see her go but i think she went to a good home... keep an eye out for it on here the new owners name is Acco92 and hes named shorty "Ramjet".

    Now as for me. On the weekend i purchased a 2004 GU IV 3.0L Auto. Its all kitted out and I think I got an awesome deal for it.

    The mods that are already done are:

    4" TJM Suspension Lift with drop boxes RTC steering damper and adjustable panhards
    Factory Bullbar
    T-Max Winch
    Safari Snorkel
    Lots of spotties
    Outback rear draw system
    Cargo barrier, top boot parcel shelf and boot divider
    GME 80 channel
    Rhino Roof Racks, Cage and Shovel Mount
    Front auto locker
    Diesel power chip
    Opposite lock dual battery system
    33" BF Goodrich A/T
    17" Clarion Roof mount DVD Player
    Scrub bars/Sliders


    The mods that are on my list:
    Exhaust
    Cruise control

    Honestly i couldnt think of many things that needed to be added to this and those two mods above are seriously probably never going to get done but i had to put somthing in it lol.

    Its the first of the GU IV Bodies but it still runs the DI motor. Im really looking forward to learning about the diesel motors and how to keep it running nice ill be doing a basic service on it this weekend or the next.

    Ill be adding other pics to this thread of it getting into the action soon but for now here are a few i have!

    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.
