    Your not keen on doing a check yourself? Just make a list and go over everything with a fine toothed comb. If your willing to drive I would book it in with Brett at 4x4 Obsession....

    Just had one done pre our Kimberley trip. Lots of things that I knew needed attention but add to those things the pretrip checklist, about an hour, nut and bolt the underside and a good test drive to pick up the things I didn't notice. So just the pretrip part, about an hour's labour,, then add the cost of fixing the things that needed attention !!
