My 2008 GXL D4D 120 (no lift). Bought with 110,000kms on it bought Sept 2013 - now with 119000


Initial mods were - driving lights and snorkel

Front recovery points - these and following pics taken after spending 3 days on 4x4 driver training so some damage and dust.


Dual battery system and additional rear cargo bay outlets


UHF radio - Navman GPS with reversing camera - Tyredog TPMS






Outback drawers (recovery gear first aid kit - fire extinguisher - EPIRB) - cargo barrier, drop down fridge slide and ARB fridge


After 3 days of doing this


Quite clear it needed better suspension and a lift. Toughdog and 2" lift completed last week.

Hi Terry. All looks good but it may pay to turn your 12v/usb socket upside down by the look of the amount of dust that is on it. Cheers, Bob.

Great setup!

Just wondering how good is the sound from the Uniden speaker mic?

Thanks

Hi

I have same (Uniden 770 mounted same as well - off center on pasenger side) - speaker works fine and in some circumstances needs to be turned off full volume so you can hear radio/conversation.

Cheers

Thanks, just to clarify is the only sound coming from the hand held mic/speaker?

The uniden are much more reasonably priced than the ICOM units.
