    GU SWB Duramax??

    Hello all I just acquired my first patrol last week and I really want to put a 6.6ltr duramax in it but my mate keeps telling me I would run a too big of a risk of flipping it 4wding up hills, I cant seem to find anyone else that's put a duramax in a SWB patrol anywhere I'm thinking maybe because my mate might be right? Can someone please tell me my mate is wrong so I can start building it haha. Thanks in advance 🤙

    Any powered SWB can honestly/scarily flip on decent gnarly incline tracks if you’re not steady on the peddle, they physics wise do have a disadvantage in length against LWB mountain climbers.
    A GU Duramax Weapon SWB cleverly driven could score some serious points though on the sandy flat stuff

    GU SWB Duramax??

    A ‘White’ GQ Shorty too, haven’t seen one of them in years, it’s gonna be a Fair Dinkum Beast Mate

    EDIT: You’ll definitely have to change your Forum name @GU.SWB Mate It’s gonna be a serious tight squeeze in a GQ, looking forward to the build

    Definitely worth watching this Legend’s build/s @GQ.SWB Mate

    https://youtu.be/SkWqSJ0Tblc

    Most notably the oil filter adaptions to squeeze a Duramax into a GU, if we can put a man on the moon, someone like your good self can Duramax the sh@t out of a GQ Shorty
