    Looks awesome mate.

    Any further plans?

    I think my next car will be a fourbie.

    Looking good, some regular globes or some HID housings might be in order though. Still, it looks like a tidy rig. Looking forward to seeing more photos of it in the 4wding thread mate :)

    Thanks dude, nah. Lux has been sold. Wasnt doing a good enough job anymore. The Cruiser is so much better across the board.
    Cheers, no major plans apart from a bigger lift and some bigger tyres. And an Intercooler aswell, that will mainly come in handy for Summer when im towing the boat around to help keep temperatures down.

    What sort of fourbie you thinking? Do you have a preference?

    Also sab, do the HID's turn off over bumps? When I went out with a 79 cruizer with HID's installed they would turn off over bumps and would have to be reset before they would turn on again.. I would say very annoying at night while 4 wheeling.

    Bought a new UHF for it today, as the old one was knackered. Also got a new 6dB elevated feed aerial for it. Was in the middle of fitting it and it started to rain. So will have to finish that job off tomorrow.

    Bit of a size difference in the units aswell.

    Damn you had a huge UHF!

    Is the new, smaller one, any better?

    Spent a bit of time yesterday installing the UHF in the Cruiser, was pretty straightforward as i used the power that was already there from the old unit, snipped off the connector and soldered it all up.

    Installed Hama's radio in his roof console. Took a bit more doing, but it came out pretty good in the end. Lucky bastard got two bolts to hold his radio in, i got jibbed with only one. Need to go back to Oricom and punch the spud who made mine.
