It's awesome mate.

The faster you go the better it gets.

The compression adjustment between max soft and max firm is like driving a different car.

No issues mate. There was more adjustment to be had to give me more clearance for the tyres but the alignment would have gone way out. So we just kept cutting and bashing until there was no more issues! :lol:

Guard chop looks pretty clean. Any chance you’re able to post up some photos of said cutting and bashing?

Edit: nevermind you already have. Cheers

Who did your suspension and alignment?

Ross at BPO in Yarrawonga did my suspension.

Alignment was done by Andy at Tyreright Palmerston.

I have more photos of the chop. I will post up over the weekend if you want

They’ve been on for around 10k now and they still look brand new. For a MT they are super quiet on the road. Good in the wet as well. Off road they’ve been great so far. Haven’t punished them too hard. Yet. I’m excited to see how they handle the Cape in July.

That’d be sweet thanks. I’m trying to do similar with mine right now and I’m getting conflicting info re wheel alignments.

Did you get a BMC too?

Cheers

BMC done and plates from PSR welded on and painted. Pinch weld flattened over. Cut some plastic out as well as the fender chop.

Mine have been fantastic. I have the same size and have travelled across Aus from the Canning to the Vic high country. The Cape will be a walk in the park for them.

Awesome!

We are doing the Kimberley’s and then the west coast shortly after as well so they are gonna get a good work out.

Glad to hear they’ve served you well!

Well done.

I figure most of you aren’t aware, so here goes.

Unfortunately Ryan passed away not long ago in Kakadu NP while on a camping trip. I didn’t know Ryan, but I spoke with him not long ago and he helped me out when I was looking for someone to fit my suspension, and some other stuff. It was certainly a shock to hear the news that he had passed away.
