    Did a few little trips when we first got the car

    Comfy to drive suspension way to wallowy felt like the efs suspension I had in the 105

    also picked up rhino vortex bars and rhino 2.5m awning

    also got a antenna bracket for the roof rack for trips until we get a bull bar to mount the antenna for the uhf..

      Installed a dual battery with 6b&s to the rear with a Anderson plug for the fridge sitting on a plastic tray with clamps holding it and 70amp Circuit breaker.. think may be to big ?

            I look forward to watching this build mate. Just a little advice, edit your first post with a list of dream parts and start ticking them off. Be warned though, the list never stops growing.

              will be a slow build as the bank is a little tight currently

                Iím hearing you, I envy those guys who can buy a brand new 4x4 and the walk straight into ARB or TJM and throw another $20k at it. Build it slow and it gives you something to look forward to mate.

                  10,000km done yesterday, we changed dealers to one closer to our house as we werenít to happy with the dealer we purchased the car from and had the 1k inspection done From

                  this dealer was a lot better and helpful especially after they sent me a confirmation email and they still didnít have our booking on the system they still were able to take the car in and give my wife a loan car,

                  we did request a 5 wheel rotation and Iíve read multiple times in this site about them never doing it !

                  well guess what ? They did rotate the wheels and I can see evidence of balancing with new weights... BUT... course they didnít do the spare ! As itís a brand new rim and tire you would be able to tell if it was on the car but itís Wasnít!

                  not sure if I should even bother or not though as we want to upgrade tyres in the future and may be able sell the 5 easier with 1 brand new

                  i havnt takes the car for a drive yet but from other posts other say car will feel better to drive after oil change as they use a diffrent oil to run in ??

                    Yes, usually a mineral oil is used for run in.

                          I've been looking at similar kits.

                          Withthe main interior lights, map, dome,rear cargo, are they a LED festoon, or are they a LED board with wires running to a festoon connection? The later flops around in the housing but usually has 10-20LEDS on a separate board. The former is usually only 4 or so LEDS and slots straight in, no wires, nothing loose.

                          Cheers

                            Itís just the cheapest kit i found on eBay thought would be enough for lighting the car up being led and save battery also

                            the kit I got came with x2 t10 vanity /sun visor globes for both sides, 2x t10 map lights
                            4x t10 for courtesy door lights ď2018 gxl doesnít have these though ď

                            and 1x Middle row and 1x cargo area and these are just the push in ones assuming called festoons you said ? They are not the panel type with the wire and board your speaking of just a small small panel with like 4-6 led on it that clips in

                            happy with it, handy can see everything now

                              Cheers

                              Not too bright is it? some of them are blinding.

                              No parkers or reverse lights in that kit? I wont have spares as i will use the door lights in mine.
