    nice ute mate, i reckon you should lower it first and either chuck some interceptor rims or some GMH 18" rims. 17"s seem too small imo. Keep us informed mate good luck

    extractors r the way to go mate, u can pick up pacemakers reasonably cheap 2nd hand over ebay, i paid more to get them installed than wat i did for the items themselves, well worth it though, keep us updated on ur progress etc, u wouldnt happen to be interested in 17" vy ss wheels would u?

    99' Series 3 VS S-Pac Ute.
    stock as a rock, and bloody clean.
    great work mate, same as my first car.
    i love seeing all the manual vs utes popping up around her.
    mine has 18's and is lowered and the bike goes in the back.
    seems to ride fine, not as comfy as a mercedes haha, but for a young bloke shes fine.

    Lows are fine mate, i have lows in mine and it lowered it more than i thought it would. They are definitely the best option if you carry a dirt bike and other things like me. I went for a ride in a mates VS the other day which has been lowered with ultra lows, i told him he was an idiot and i was glad to get out of the vehicle, it might as well have had bricks for springs.

    Here is mine on "Lows" to give you an idea of how yours would look.
