I understand you have a lockable hard lid? Does this mean that the hard lid and back tub door all are lockable by your central locking? Hard job? Cheers

CouplerTec - hard to say.. Ive had it in now since 2007. it still shows green on the unit, which means its 'working'.. is there any rust.. yeah bits and pieces, would it have been worse without the couplertec.. dont know, but going off the other vehicles who travel with me.. i dont think it makes that much difference.

Im not sure 'which' rims and tires you mean.. but yes, all the rims and tires Ive had will clear. the -11's will rub though if you have normal plastic bumper.

Very Happy with the recovery points.. they work really well.. and yes it was K&N we got ours from too.. cant say as we measured the cuts in the splash guards though, we just kept making them bigger until they fitted!..

Hi Steve, good looking ute! I am grappling with the recovery point issue on the ARB delux winch bar. I have been in touch with K&N 4WD in Perth who sell a recovery point that looks like yours. Before I proceed, can you tell me if you are happy with your fitting? Do you happen to have the measurements for the cut required in the splash guard?
