    Started with the home build bullbar. Will just shorten the middle section and make the sides round later.

    What nice memories, I had one in Karoi in Zimbabwe while in military service, it was mine prepared so the extra weight from the plates removed most the effect of the suspension. It looked as if the suspension was dropped .

    Sure is a pretty vehicle, must say your suspension rides much higher than mine did.

    We added 50mm spacers between axles and suspension and about 20mm rubbers between cab and chassis to increase the body height a bit. If you look at my first post, you can see it was much lower than now.
