Well maybe leave it as auto until you decide or the auto box doesn't work anymore :p

Which probably won't be too long if you're still really keen on first gear :lol:

its a hard decision as its easy to whack another auto in it....gotta let him know in a day or so ill have a think about it.

this autos still fairly strong little clunky at times but nothing major.

Looks pretty tidy mate, nice.

I don't think those reflectors on the back are factory, could be wrong though.

After googling for 10 seconds, it appears they all have those reflectors. My mistake.

If they are screwed on you should be able to reach they pretty easily by removing the tail lights, or removing the rear panels inside the tray walls.

Looks good debadged though 8-)

The reflectors MUST be on the back of the ute somewhere to meet ADR requirements. You can move them I believe, but you can't REmove them.

Cheers
