Default MSF's Shorty

Bought this just over two years ago for $29,500

We were looking at a brand new one at the time but were reluctant to spend the $49K they wanted for a new one. I looked around for a bit longer and found this '07 model that was advertised for $33,000.

It was a one owner, no non-factory mods and was bought as a company car for a director who never went off road in it. In the end we talked him down to just $22.90 above what the lease payout was.

this is what it looked like when we bought it..



We have been slowly modifying it and adding bits to make it better off road and a more capable touring machine.

So far we have added...

Factory Towbar
16x7 Mangel Steel Rims with Goodyear 245/75 R16 MT/R's
Bilstein Shocks and Lovells Springs
ARB Bar with Warn XD9000 winch
Lightforce XGT lights - xxxxx Now FYRLYTs
Dual Battery System with rear outlets for 12V & 240V power
Bushskinz underbody protection
GME TX3340 UHF
Better tinting on the front glass
Rhino Roof Racks and Platform
Side and Rear Awnings xxxxx Now FoxWing

This is what it looks like now





Still on the list to do..

Auxiliary Tank (65L)
Bushskinz Side step / sliders
Bushskinz Rear Bar
Rear drawers/storage and fridge slide

*maybe a rear diff lock - still undecided

Thanks,

the wheels were the ones I bought from this forum. (http://www2.pajeroclub.com.au/forum/...ad.php?t=18504)
They were white originally (looks weird on a silver car) so I had them Sandblasted and powder coated satin black.

I must give a big thanks to Lee at Jobsons tyres at Brookvale he did the remove and refit, new valves and balance for $12.50 a wheel - everyone else I called wanted a minimum of $20 per wheel.
Lee also took the time to weight them correctly on the inside only (save any damage to the newly powder coated outside) and for 3 of the wheels that came in at over 100g, he deflated the tyre and then spun it on the rim to ensure they were heaps lower - max of 65g - that's what I call service...

We still have the factory 18's that we swap over when we are not going away 4WDing

Thanks guys, This has been a dream car of mine for ages. When I bought it Jase forgot to mention that mods cost a packet! Ah wells 2 years later I am so thrilled to see it all coming together and we are finally scheduling more trips. Can't wait to meet those of you coming out on Sudnay.

Now I just need to take the keys back off him - giving him his own key was the worst mistake ever. I never get to drive my own car.
