    No but will it help? I have never considered it to be honest, am unsure about legality, bearing in mind I have spent a small fortune getting thru the VASS process.

    I believe in Vic we are allowed a total max of 75mm/under 3" total axle to guard lift from stock (happy to be corrected though). You've already got a 2" sus lift too I believe so maybe 1" body lift could over max it. 35's are definitely a no no unless engineered with Portals too I believe. I'd also imagine a 33" tyre would be your GQ max legal. I'm assuming stock GQ's of your vintage were 31" or maybe under like 30" so worth checking that too. Two tyre sizes up max I think?

    Oh dear, looks like more time in exile. Portals are a major shift in my thinking, but possible - not this year but by the time the 32's are knackered, for sure. I am open to weigh up anything to be honest and if it makes total sense, its on.

    You miht have to make room in one of your paddocks MB in case exile becomes Xmas Hills.

    These really are the ducks guts I reckon and I have no need for them but have always wanted'em. Fitted they look like circa 24k with the replacement GU axle housings, hydro brake boost and engineers. Seems like an expensive way to legally run 35" tyres, but the GVM also goes thru the roof as well.

    Yes, gotta have.

    Level me out a spot big enough for the patrol pls, maybe big enough for 2?
