    Shan's Silver TD Altitude with Attitude

    After tossing between brand new GXL and 2012/2013 Altitude I'm finally settled with this beauty!!
    2012 Altitude with 29000 Kms on the clock...

    It's the first diesel I've owned and a lot to get used to.

    I have to say if my Grande was a diesel or I was smart enough to not to put LPG on it, I wouldn’t be rushing to upgrade. Infamous airbags on my Grande was the other main influence.

    The Altitude came with dual battery system, Toyo tow pack, Toyo rubber mats and Toyo nudge bar.

    First on the list is TJM T13 bar, winch, side steps and maybe scrub bars to go with it.
    Then it will be the 2” lift that I won at the 2014 GTG !! Thank you Dobinsons & Anth120Playdo !!

    But all is on hold till I sell the Grande..

    Here’s how it looked when I bought it and nothing has changed yet.

    Ben for Nil to like the 90 you would have to put a sunroof in. Sheree loved Pearl ( Pearl loves it )
    When i went with Dave it was like driving my truck, second thoughts the truck is more comfortable lol.
    Seriously those 90's are a good bit of gear .

    Nice work Shan, it's barely run in and comes with some nice extra goodies to start with.

    Still don't understand why people bother putting those nudge bars on though?

    Thanks Matt. Yeah they are useless, hopefully I can offload it to someone when I get the T13.

    Pretty much Kurt !! We were thinking definitely white before we saw your beast at the GTG.
    And with the help of Anth and Steve, I managed to convince the better-half to get a Silver !!
