    If I don't get around to doing a video of the horn, here's one someone prepared earlier

    There's an inline isolator on the main power cable. I'm thinking of wiring the control box so that the power isn't active until I hit a switch on the day, that way I've got a kill switch inside in case **** happens me I need to shut the winch down instantly

    Have you got the picture? I've heard of that happening many many times but I've never seen it, or even seen a picture.

    Major service done last week. Engine oil, both diffs, transfer case, filters... blah blah blah. New pads still need to go in, Bendix 4x4 pads, should give a better feel under foot, something I miss from the Statesman.

    No other updates but I did get a photo while it was on the hoist so you can get a decent idea of how big the bash plates are.

    And what is the above?

    Double lockers?

    If not, get double lockers, your car will be a weapon then.

    ^^^ Means increase in height. Pretty much all he last thing on my "must do" list. I'm going with a custom kit from Ultimate Suspension in Sydney.

    Ah Ultimate Springs, I know people that have gone with them, good stuff, but expensive.

    I got a full 2" lift for my Jackaroo (mind you original torsion bars were wound up, so money saved there) but the new EFS shocks F/R and King springs (rear) installed cost $850. I personally would shop around myself, but Ultimate Suspension are good quality, so you can't go wrong.

    So here's a few of the finest inches around!

    I VERY happy with the way it sits now and it feels much more comfortable on the road than the sagged factory suspension that was in it. At a guess I'd say it's gone up about 65mm over what it was but it'll likely come down slightly when it settles.

    Not much to update lately, but I installed a new DVD head unit recently and hopefully in the next few days the new LCD headrest should arrived. Should keep the kiddies happy during long trips.
