Background Info:
A change in my priorities has meant that i have to put this on the market. I bought it to have fun off road and also to tow my cars comfortably so as soon as I bought it I got to work cleaning the inside and outside. I also bought and installed a bunch of parts to ensure reliability and making sure i was comfortable driving it as my daily. This is the reason for the new water pump, bigger transmission cooler, etc etc. The Headgasket was installed because I suspected a blown headgasket so I went with a Multi-Layer Steel (MLS) one to drop compression slightly and to also ensure it was put together correctly. At the same time, the head was skimmed to ensure a tight total seal. Had the LPG system looked over by a specialist and it is in top condition. LPG system is big enough to handle a stroker motor if more torque is needed. The car handles really well on the road and very stable. All fluids have been replaced, new oil and filter, new coolant, new powersteering fluid, new transmission fluid, etc. The auto with shift kit makes it a dream to tow as there is no flaring and yet it is still driveable as a daily. It also makes it easy to crawl as there is not a need to feather a clutch and so on, just chug along. The large oil cooler also means that the transmission will never overheat with all the abuse that is thrown at it. Transmission cooler, braided lines and Speedflow fittings are all literally brand new and cost me a fair bit, but as thought I was I going to keep this for a while I went all out so my loss is your gain. Body has no rust at all. When I was cleaning out the interior, I stripped all interior panels off and went through to check for any rust. All holes in the floor has been plugged up and any scratches have been coated in an antirust formulation. There is also antirust formulation on the stone chips and scratches on the exterior. Body is not show car quality but has NO RUST at all.

This is daily driven and I have never had problems with Police, even at RBT stops. Good mileage on petrol and gas, roughly $25 gets me 300ish kms and even more on highway/freeways.
