    So it is itching... mos daar, and then you develop hooks for fingers.

    Get the rear bumper if you need it. If you're just itching to spend money, maybe get some gullwings!

    Good morning
    It all depends on what you need, what you are using the car for and what your budget is.
    We started at the suspension to the roof carrier, but we use our vehicle mostly for over landing.
    So we made sure that we have power in every sense!

    Ja Elly. I should have added another option to the poll: "I hope SWAMBO doesn't see this thread"

    Too late now. She is to say the least not impressed. (with me that is)

    So just a bit more re my LC 76. The only items I added after I bought it was a roof top tent & center console.

    Bought with the below extras already:
    • Ironman Suspension
    • Airlifters at rear
    • Long Range Tank
    • Duel battery system with DC - DC Charger
    • Frontrunner roof console
    • Frontrunner roof rack
    • 270 Awning
    • S/S Table
    • Drawer System with 80l S/S water tank
    • Frontruner Ladder
    • Highlift mount kit for roofrack
    • Spade Brackets on Ladder
    • Snorkel
    • Frontrunner Towbar


    So in short I had an itch... not going to scratch it anymore. But maybe a rear bumper to carry 2 spares.

    Hello there again
    Sounds really great what you have there, very close to ours, so the overlander option. We have had the roof top tent as well, but removed it again, as it made the cruiser to top heavy.
    As for the 2 spares on the back bumper, we have tries it, and also removed the second wheel again, as for us, firstly it was a lot of weight on the bumper, and secondly it was just too much of a hassle to open the them first, before we could get into the back of the car.
    So it was a waste of money .

    What really was value for money for us, was that we put a turbo on, with a free-flow system on, as we got 57kw more, made a huge change to the car! More power - less fuel!
