    Hello everyone

    Hi all to all on this forum. I just want to introduce myself a bit.
    I went shopping for a mid-size vehicle with my wife. I want to start exploring WA more and get of the main roads, camping and exploring. We looked at many - Tritons, Challengers, etc etc and my wife picked a lovely 2004 GU 3.0 Patrol ST-L to sit in and said it was “nice”. A few days later it’s sitting in my driveway! So far I’m absolutely loving it.
    She’s had a full check up with a clean bill of health and new tyres and shocks. I found some extras on her - Polyair bags in the rear, electronic braking system of some kind, dual batteries. She has a UHF radio I discovered the unit behind the air outlet in the drivers footwell. But no mike and the plate was missing so I can’t use it oh well I’ll just have to get a new replacement for her 😬.
    Yesterday I found a compressor on Gumtree for $80 so I can adjust air pressure for beach and off road. I think I will have to slow down a bit as there are so many things I want to get for her.
    My previous vehicle was (I still have it) a Nissan Xtrail. And before that I had a Suzuki Sierra for many years and loved it. The kids grew a bit too big for the back if it so I donated her to a mate for beach use.
    Anyway I enjoy reading the items about Patrols and your stories. I look forward to getting some hints and tips from you guys.

    Cheers

    Paul

    G'day mate and welcome to the forum.
    welcome to the forum...there's a few guys from perth here somewhere..just watch ouit for the cranky old bastard...
    Which one @Avo ?
    2005 GU IV ST 3.0. Snorkel. Roof rack. Awning. Spots. Welded I/C. Dual batteries & VSR. UHF. Barn door hinge extension. Roof top spot lights. Rear drawers. 2" lift. NADS. EGT and boost gauges. Trans temp and water temp gauges. Provent 200 catch can. Rear ladder


    And crawling on the planet's face, some insects called the human race. Lost in time. And lost in space... and meaning.
