Looks great

Why do you have two sets of everything? Were you going to do twin snorkels?

i did toss up putting it lower, but the snorkel would interfere with visibility... not what i wanted

the reason the safari's are lower is because they are only 2"... bit stupid considering the engine block intake is 3.5" to 3"

i was going to go twins, but after putting in this one, i noticed that there is a MASSIVE structural beam above where i put this, feel your trooper, you will notice a point on the doors and 1/4 panels (can see it in the pics too), this is the bottom of that beam, it goes right to the top- 150x50x6mm steel

i am still tossing up whether i will go twins, but maybe as just a vent for the drivers side- terminate it behind the engine

the 1/4 panel is just attached with 3 bolts, spaced with 2 washers and 2 nuts (spring washers on both ends, and siliconed *neutral cure*)
the A-pillar is self tapped and 1 capture nut and bolt with the 2 brackets shown in this pic

the roof console (thinking about making a new one though, this was only going to be a temporary one)

the rear draw (yes, it is on an angle- level to the back seat, but enough height to fit a table in the door- 740mm from roof height)

had some ridiculous fun last weekend

....the rollover point for a jackaroo/trooper is 45 degree's.... don't worry mate, i still got 5 degree's to go.... too bad the arse end is sliding into a 400mm deep trench, gave up and floored it in reverse to get out of this one (momentum to prevent sliding sideways)







V yes, my window is open! :lol:
















and i discovered that troopers/jackaroo's are not mud proof... 3 holes to fill, these 2 and the hole under the jack compartment

That's a performance mod: all of those grooves add surface area to the rotors, which the pads will conform to. Once the dirt is gone you can tell everyone you did that intentionally.

lol would have been believable if not for the sound of the calipers and rotors binding :p could hear it 1km away :D

the clogged radiator last weekend was a performance mod too, helps for sub-0 degree operating temperatures ;)

I have got to come and visit glasshouse some time!
Where do u plan to put the air tank? I've been considering it for a while now. Useless for airing up tyres but could be good for using high pressure air to clean up or maybe run a rattle gun from time to time (not sure how much longer the 12v rattlie is going to last).
Where are you going to put the spotties?
