Hi all thanks for stopping by here is my ute!

Genie 1 7/8 extractors with Magnaflow HF cats, twin 3” mild steel hurricane exhaust
TR6060 gearbox with a GM Motorsport race rip shift and NPC clutch.
Harrop Truetrac diff with 3.9 diff gears.
Lowered on KW coilovers (replacement coming soon), Superpro hollow sway bars F & R, Superpro front strut brace.
Koya SF01 wheels in satin black, 18x9 +32 & 18x11 +43. 265/40/18 & 275/35/18 (wrong size I know:mad:) Michelin tyres.
VE HSV AP Racing brakes with white calipers, DBA T3 slotted rotors, Harrop braided brake lines.

Would be good if you can.....keen to see how the offset sits with straight wheels.

Rears are pretty much flush with the guards, and fronts have a little room. I’ll get a pic in the morning.

For anyone that is interested, I destroyed my gearbox three months ago. Apparently the TR6060 didn’t like a 3rd>4th mis shift at 6500rpm :(. Lost 4th gear then a hundred kms later (separated by a week) big bang going around a corner lost the lot!

But all’s not lost, in the mean time I’ve installed my HSV alcantara steering wheel, had my shifter boot re trimmed in black leather with white stitching and I’ve skinned my shifter surround and dash spears in genuine carbon fibre and not that ugly cheap looking CF wrap. Hoping to be back on the road in 4 weeks.

In Melbourne, but I've got a TR6060 for sale with a clutch if you need.

Appreciate the offer, but I’m going to get mine rebuilt.
