I have recently bought a 2000 AUII Ute and have a few ideas myself but was wondering from other owners and fans what would look really nice! First what i had in mind.
1. New wheels, i was looking at Avantek Raze rims, 18"
2. And was wondering if the hard tonneau with alloy sports bar and a spoiler will fit?

Hey mate, welcome to the forums! I think a new set of wheels and maybe lowering (if its a XL). The hard tonneau will fit but personally i think just a standard one suit the au better. What colour is it?

Hey and thank you for the welcome! I'll give some background info so we are on the same page. I just bought the car and it had a service body (heaps of compartments) on it, so i took it off and am selling it to buy a tub to suit. The car is currently white but im looking to respray because the white has faded slightly and i like the look of the new metallic whites. And i will need to get the springs re-tensioned anyway so lowering it will look nice you reakon? And i think its an XL..... whats the real difference?

I just had to post this here, if I had a AU ute this is what I'd do to it, but with TS50 wheels and a hard tonneau.

Welcome to the forum :)

I think the glossy/metallic white finish is nice, but is anybody else a fan?

Full resprays are normally between 3500-5000.

It cost me $450 to get my bodykit shipped from Sydney to Perth, so for you in vic should cost alot less if you go through www.awcinfo.com
