    Welcome back. Nice tidy looking rig. Dual batteries are not standard and for new suspension check out the multiple posts on the ironman group buy setup Whitey has almost finished (can you see the end yet Whitey?). I have it installed on my 2014 GXL diesel and it is superb.

    Jarrodjess - haven't looked into kits yet. Had Ironman in the 90 Series and that was ok, sagged pretty quickly though. Had EFS in the 80 series and that was great. Will look into all of the options when the time comes!

    bazzang - my last experience with Ironman wasn't great (sagged quickly and they weren't interested in replacing under warranty, their solution was to offer me coil spacers). I will look into them again though as that was over 5 years ago and everyone seems to be happy with the group buy gear


    As for other stuff, I've got myself a couple of little bits from Solidkit to fit - a dual usb port and dual battery monitor which looked pretty neat

    Also got some Wetseat covers and floormats on the way.

    And next major item will be wheels and tyres, most likely FJ rims or similar with 275/70/17s on them

    Mate I'm sorry to tell you that that SolidKit Dual volt meter, which is a quality bit of gear,
    will turn you OCD...

    Just try to not constantly look at what your voltages are doing... I dare you!
