what kind of offroad use? rallying? if it's rally work, dont concentrate on 4x4 gear, get in touch with a few of the competitors who are running in the same class as you intend on competing in.... you'll find they'll be happy to point you in the right direction

its fairly close to rally but its more like the dakar rally but the people who r doing it don't have as much money as they do.

theres a guy i know who bought a torana with big 4wd suspension and s**t in done up for off-road but he doesn't know where i should go to get the stuff to do it and i am going to need some1 to put it together cause i won't have the tools i'll need to do it

if it's desert racing, try some of the crews from the finke desert race.... desert racing means a s**t of custom suspension gear, there's next to no off the shelf stuff availible that will suit hardcore racing, especially desert racing
