    Heads up, about body cracks. GQ

    G'day all. I was inspecting the front passenger side suspension and found a few popped spot welds along the sill panel. On further inspection, I found vertical cracks on each side of the body bracket. It only cost $80 to get it all welded and they even painted the repair, which was a bonus.

    Good find mate.
    Mine had some cracks to, where the middle seats clip down to, and the seal in the cargo barrier had popped a few. Thus all the dirt..

    Worth having a good look as these trucks age..
    Cheers

    The scarey thing is that the cracks have developed since I bought it 2 I/4 years ago. I have only driven it 8000ks (Below 1000ks off road) The spot welds on the front of the sill had pulled out, leaving the paint in place, so were hard to see.
