So here is the shopping list and a few comments along the way. Formating didn't work out so well so an X means completed and a ? means getting there.
X T3 colour coded bullbar - fitted pre delivery
Bumper cut rather than infill pieces which seem to have been problematic and recovery points
X TJM XGS Gold Lift with Polyair bags - fitted pre delivery
Front struts 659GE188L
Front springs 770FR88I
Rear shock absorbers 650GE288L
Rear springs 770RR88I
X Toyota towbar with flat plug - fitted pre delivery
X Safari snorkel - fitted pre delivery
Wife’s preference Safari over Airtec
X 265/70 17BFG AT KO2. With a trip in the works that needs a bit more tyre and the revision to the KO2 and the regs up here I went 70 profile. Early days but happy.
X TG150 guard, fitted as per Brains posts and fine instructions:
X TJM steel sidesteps - fitted pre delivery
Steps are good, higher and stronger but the wife has a problem with how wide they are. The steps catch on her clothes. Will have to take the sharpish edges off as well. Might need to do some work.
X Britax spot lights - Lights mounted, wiring completed, Britax make a theft proof nut which I have fitted. Update, I fitted the Britax 60W HID conversion and the lights are really very good. No need for any changes now
X Camera shroud removal as suggested here by brogers
X Dual battery system - Redarc BCDC1225 mounted in vehicle with Ritar 120 AH AGM battery. As part of the electrical feed I am looking at a multiple ANL fuse block to feed the compressor, spot lights and the 6B&S to the DC DC charger. The DC DC charger will be set up with a changeover relay to allow solar supply when camping. Wiring as per the Redarc suggestion. Fridge mounting board made, box made and fitted out. For anyone contemplating the same set up with a solar in feed the Britax changeover relay I used was the Britax Relay PN: RC1260R and accompanying base 99025B. This relay and base have the larger pins that make wiring with the 10mm cable possible.
X Brake controller - Redarc towpro
X Air compressor - ARB CKMTA12 mounted under the bonnet in the unused battery space
X Breather extensions - as per PP with mini gearbox breather heads from OzHyd
? Differential locks - TJM prolocker to be fitted by June next year
? Shadow chrome work – maybe, looks better with the bluestorm paintwork
X Batteries meter - Baintech
X Catch can - Genuine Provent from Mann+Hummel. Install pretty much the same as http://www.pradopoint.com/showthread...tching-Blow-by
X Roof rack - JARTLRAL18RM gutterless Jaram Tracklander 1800 x 1200 with Rhino CXB mounts. New rails fitted, works a treat. Details here http://www.pradopoint.com/showthread...s-using/page17
X DRLs - Narva 71940
Fitted the DRLs into the T3 in place of the foglights
X TJM underbody protection
Fitted on the weekend. Very easy bolt on, makes the original tinfoil and plastic look like tinfoil and plastic!
? Runva 11XP winch with nylon rope. Sitting in the garage, just need to fit it. Using a Roadsafe extended hawse.
? Transmission cooler by Tin. All the parts are in the shed, just need to fit it.
A couple of shots; when it was first delivered out to TJM Brendale for the pre delivery work, didn't even have rego.
And how it looks with the Tracklander on top
