Well iv had this bout a month and i thought id put something up, Bought it for 16 and had 95xxx on the clock which was a nice little pick up. Its a 5 speed manual it had a few stone chips and stuff around it but mechanically sound bought it with the rims and tail lights not a big fan myself but ya cant have everything haha.
So far iv put lowering blocks, splits n done some stuff the the interior which ill get pics later. Next on the list is a clod air n throttle body and i guess ill just go from there :D oh and sorry for the phone pics its all i got so far.

Well bought a set of kicker splits n 6x9s the other day did cost a far bit but really worth the money. Also scored a big mouth throttle body for 320 :) pretty happy picking it up easter weekend n will prob get the growler kit same day

iv been looking into exhaust systems lately n iv grown to love sound of diff dumpers does any1 know of any info they can give me about them? n were i could get them done or made up? i was also thinking of just getting quad tips just as fakes so it looks alright to. cheers

Hey all

Well i got some good n bad news. Bad news first is i found out i got a hole in my exhaust around the rear muffler some were gonna get it checked out this weekend probably but the good news means i may have to get my exhaust system a little sooner then expected better start saving asap :P

I was looking at this rear bar off ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/FPV-Pursuit-Ute- ... 409wt_1139

But i have a feeling it wont fit because the sides were the wheel archers are different just wondering if any1 gets what im on about so i can get a bit of info on it because dont realllly want to buy it n turns out its wrong hey

thanks heaps

Thinking about lowering blocks in my ute.

Has it compromised the ride at all?
