Postby shane308 on Sun, 21 Sep 2008 7:32 +0000

this is whats been keeping me busy lately, its got hilux springs, offroad hitch, i've still got to put the rear step bar, hard cover, water tank under it, and get the cavas made for between the hard cover and tub for when its open making it into a pop up tent type thing and some matching wheels and tyres, its not finished yet but its getting there.

Shane,

I like it!

Must have been expensive to get a Hilux tub.

It's unique and eye catching.

Thumbs up.................. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
Cheers

I like the looks and the idea of that. wouldnt mind, like others of doing something similar one day, possible with a extra or single cab tub, just for the extra length, and a pop up hard lid that would allow you to sleep in it with a false floow and draws underneath.

If I may, what did the tub set you back?

max it is an extra cab tub, i would have liked to get a single cab one for the extra length but i wanted sr5 to match the ute so it had to be extra cab, the tub was $300 off ebay.
Billy bob, yeah i love the monaro to but the one in the garage is my first love haha,it doesn't have an engine but the body is straight and rust free but the paint is allready stuffed so don't feel to bad.
