    Hi from The Sutherland Shire

    Hi guys, I've had a bit of a browse around, liked what I see so decided to join up. Last week I picked up a clean late 2010 GU CRD auto with 48,000km on it. It running new 33" BFG A/T's, dual batteries, UHF, Nissan winch bar and some fancy LED driving lights. I've previously come from a twin locked pretty wicked Hilux, but was looking for something a bit newer and stronger in the driveline, hopefully I've made the right choice.

    Plan on making a few mods to it including 3-4" lift, 35's, front locker, draws, etc. etc. I don't want a comp truck but I want a very capable tourer that I can drive anywhere I like.

    I look forward to chatting, learning and meeting some of you over time.

    Cheers

    Rod

    Hi mate nice looking rig, hilux isn't even in the same class. Welcome to a great forum.

    Happy to go for a fun Nic, but I think first it needs a bit of protection, so I don't trash it on day 1

    Great to hear buddy. Make sure you put up a thread in the my rig section so we can all see you working the truck and fitting your mods
