    Just got some raised king springs for the Jackaroo, also bough a set of EFS shocks for the rear & will get some for the front soon.
    Then plan on getting some 255/85/R16's or 285/75/R16's to help clear the ground a bit better.

    Thanks for the advice. I will consult some local 4wd places and see what they say about different brands.

    My missus wants to do a bit of off roading, but she wants a tough looking 4b more.

    You know it'll have a turbo on it soon. 9th July, I start to put it on.
    Then you'll need more turbo lol. Makes yours a baby.

    So far i've been to repair his barrell and gave him bolts to hold his steering arm in place haha, havent managed to get it on the tracks yet but it could be capable, cant wait to see how it goes though to be honest. He's always been a big nissan fan and toyota basher so im keen to take him out to some tough stuff that takes good line picking.

    Went out on Sunday myself.

    Unfortunately I wasn't the one with the camera. Whats more unfortunate is that any pics and video are going on Facebook rather than the site I organised the trip through.

    Got wheels up, nearly rolled over 3 or four times and had some fun though.

    2014 D22 Navara Dual Cab 4x4
    My Old Jackaroo **** it's self and I needed a Reliable tow & camp Dual cab. So Bit the bullet and bought new

    Nissan Had a special on the Navara D22 $29,990 Drive Away including, Steel Bull bar, Spotlights, Tub liner, Tonneau Cover, Tow Bar, Rubber Floor Mats

    2014 build model too

    Don't really need to do anything to it with all the accessories, The factory Bull Bar is extremely good, also has winch mount

    Already done a few beach trips, laps it up not a worry

    Will possibly look at doing a 2" lift later on, as well as some rear lighting, also keeping an eye out for second hand ladder racks to mount a awning on.

    Shouldn't really put that up until after insurance has dealt with it.

    No, all good. Couple of small cuts and bruises. Car is a total loss I reckon, the A & B pillars on the passenger side are bent in and roof is buckled. As soon as the roof is bent, it's a statutory write off.

    I was behind them and I thought, geez she's going a bit quick for the turn, then it went up and over. The footage is from another mate that was with us, he always has his dash cam on. Stayed up on two wheels for a while.

    This was probably the best result, if she corrected and dropped it back on 4 wheels, it would have ended up going head first into a 6" deep concrete drain. That would have been a lot worse for them.
