    Needed a ute for work , using a sedan wasnt the best choice as chucking tools and shit in the boot wasnt the best and could only fit a certain amount etc
    This came up for really really cheap so jumped on it .
    The thing is spotless. And has really low ks for a ute 115,000

    How it started off when I first got it :

    As you can see the thing is at monster truck height

    So chucked a set of Sedan Ultra lows in the rear and just waiting for next pay day to do the fronts , but sits a bit nicer .

    Are those door speaker pods in upside down? It looks like it's facing down in the photo and im pretty sure they're supposed to face upwards more?

    Also thinking of changing the rear springs over to the pedders ones I have in the vy ss , as these ones have the exhaust only around 92mm off the ground as it hangs pretty low . Where as I think the pedders will make it sit around 100mm

    Changed the rear over to the pedders springs from the vy , ultra lows were waaaaay to low in the rear and with the exhaust hanging low it was like 89mm off the ground so yeah had to raise it up , plus towed the boss trailer with it that low and it was pretty low. Fronts will deffently get lowered to around ssl height then will see if the rear needs touching up again .

    But yeha was a good hang out kito

    Ute looks great, will look so nice once the front is bought down too. Kito needs to find a better photo location though, your street is not a great place for photos lol.
