The dual cabs tuff and knowing it has 220kw in a diesel on 35's makes it tuffer. Tassie is good driving if you get a chance to get there but tassie has a way on making patrols fall over both those cars ended up upside down that trip

Sorry this is a little off topic but alot of you guys know 4x4s so any suggestions would be great

Need a towcar, i have a budget of 3-5k and im leaning towards an early 90's landrover or jeep Cherokee, is there anything better for that price range?

F*cking finding it hard to find a D22 Tub in QLD at the moment. There should be hundreds of them.

On top of that nobody can tell me for certain that any D22 tub will fit on ANY D22. Some sellers won't sell me stuff because they think a 2012 tub won't fit on an 05. Others tell me it's fine. Nissan tech says it will, Nissan contact number says no. I want to know for sure before paying 3-400 bucks on getting one freighted.

So, LED light bar or some spotties?

The light bars are only good for spread, but most people I've spoken too said they don't need to see 3km down the road anyway, they just want better road shoulder views, looking out for roo's etc.

Thoughts?

Most people seem to use the light bars now , I have both and think the light bars work good but I think you need to buy good quality.
You can also get a light bar that is spread-spot

Here's mine at the minute just waiting to get her tuned

Spending less and less time in the shed with the VL at the moment and more and more time out with the 4x4. Winter can be awesome fun!

Picked up a new Wrangler in January, it then copped a 3.5" lift, 35" tyres, swaybar disconnects, bullbar, winch, some spotties and a rear bar with tyre carrier.

Mate jeep looks awesome! Any more pics?

I'm a bit the same, VL's parked up so had to buy another toy. Quite like having a car you can drive daily, hit the mud in, and know it'll take whatever you throw at it.
