Well it has finally made it through QLD Transport!! Our new 2 door 5 seat Troopcarrier is here. Factory lockers, GVM upgrade to 3900kg's done before first rego & ARB Deluxe bull bar & side rails in the garage for fitting tomorrow. My three year old girl loved it so much we had to give her dinner in the back! Now the wife & I have to plan some serious touring.

HI Stefandsal
Glad to read that you have a worthy vehicle what you have to do now is get out and use it
Question how did you get the upgrade to 3900kg's and what did they do to the vehicle.
Best of luck to you and your family and enjoy it
Cheers Reggy

Hey Reggy
The GVM Upgrade was a Lovells Kit - pretty much just a suspension upgrade but legal. All springs (leaf & coils) shocks, bushes, shackles etc). A second stage compliance plate is attached prior to first rego & that's it. Got at least a 2 inch lift as a by product & Transport Inspectors ticked it all ok. Can be done after first rego but many more $$$$.

HI Stefandsal
And now you need wheel carrier to take wheel of the door, before door hinges get stretched on corrugation and ruined for ever.
Than some power chip and bigger exhaust to get real power out of that V8 motor.
And lockers and long fuel-tank and underbody water-tank and and and .........We know very well, these upgrades are going on & on.
But than again this a "car for life" as Toyota say.

Cheers Dana
