Cheers for all the comments guys. I would of liked to go a little bit lower at the back but the leaf springs are dead flat right now i dont wanna use blocks again.

xhute0, i think i'll pass on the five poster, rollbar and spotties :lol: . Never been a fan of the rural outback type utes, but fiar enough each to their own.

Timmeh the wheels are 18" Koya octanes. Us e-series boys dont have a hell of a lot of choice when it comes to mags :( .

I may start a thread in the V8 workshop forum about the engine mods that i will be carrying out (slowly :x ) and maybe one in the interior mods forum aswell as i begin to change a couple of things. I have already added an AU centre console and momo wheel & gear knob, but i will go into more detail in that forum.
But once again thanks for all the good comments guys, keep em comin :wink: .[/quote]

Yeah mate plenty of more engine mods to come. I have an Edelbrock Performer RPM 5.0 inlet manifold sittin waitin for some heads to go with it so they can be bolted on. Also have a 75mm MAF housing aswell, thats waitin till i get a 75mm t/b and matching EGR, some 24lb injectors and get a twEECer to get it all right. Also trying to decide on a cam to put in but i will go into more detail in the V8 workshop forum once things get moving along a bit quicker.
Doing the clutch this w/e. Fitting an Extreme cushioned ceramic button plate with modified cover to 3000lb clamp load.
Will keep it all posted.
Thanks for the support guys.

I am actually quite a fan of the front of the Non-XR XH ute. I think the EF front and the neat little bulge/crease on the bonnet sets it off quite nicely
