I had the auto conversion on my GU Patrol 4.2 done last year by Wholesale Automatic Transmissions and while I’m very pleased with the conversion I thought they should given more thought to how and where the Compushift display was located. They had simply left it sitting on the console. We rigged up a temporary fix using velcro and cardboard for our 5 month trip to WA last year but when I got home I decided to find a better solution.

Problem solved by Kenay Kustoms.

This is what I call a factory finish.

Hi Michael

The auto changeover hasn’t affected fuel consumption noticeably. I think around town it’s a tad more economical and about the same when towing the BRS Pursuit hybrid camper - depending on headwind and speed. The best I got last year on our WA trip was 16.
