    Finally got around to installing my second auxiliary battery today, for a total of 270AH.
    Nothing like a couple of cold beers while up the bush, and no fear of running the batteries down too low.

    2"lift is out and brand new rear shocks have been fitted with the standard springs. The vehicle sits as solid as a rock on the road and the ride is smooth.

    Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish.

    I went to the wreckers last week and bought a bunch of small bits and pieces that my GU III was missing/were damaged.
    One of those bits was a replacement cruise control module, as the writing had worn off the unit on my steering wheel.
    I could only get a black module, and my factory unit was a khaki colour, so I pulled them both apart, popped the buttons out and swapped them over.
    Pretty happy with how it looks.Attachment 76387IMG_20180918_205442.jpegIMG_20180918_210445.jpegIMG_20180918_212156__01.jpegIMG_20180918_212758.jpeg

    They don't... the Y62 does (and a 130 AH Alternator stock).

    The Y61 was made only just after electricity was discovered so thankfully missed out on PIA equipment like smart alternators

    Cracked all of the rear suspension bush mounting nuts to reset the the bushes to standard height then torqued them all back up.

    I never would have thought of doing that, but at the Anzac holiday meet up, @PeeBee told me that the bushes need to be reset when a lift is added or subtracted. Cheers, mate.

    Muddy, thats great but to be 100% honest I don't recall the conversation or which bushes you are referring to - sorry I am now totally intrigued!!!!! But glad it worked or made you feel good, and hope it wasn't too much trouble.

    Bastard of a job, but it makes sense. The bushes are fitted and done up at standard. A 2" inch lift rotates the bushes, therefore as the vehicle lifts over a bump, the the rubber is twisted that much extra. I hadn't given it a thought, until you mentioned it. When I got home I set the bushes for the lift, so had to reset them to standard when the lift was removed.
