Naths 2014 SR

EDIT: Just realised this is posted in the wrong place :? Sorry mods!

Hi all just thought i'd post up my rig and what i've done since i bought it. Its a 2014 SR D4D 5sp Auto.

I live and work in Canberra and try my best to get away as often as possible. Most popular trip is probably Snowy Mountains day trips but my favourite would have to be the Moreton, Bribie and Glasshouse trip i did in December 2017.

The Lux has been great so far, definitely the best vehicle ive owned. Sitting at around 80,000km on the clock as of now.

The day i bought it

How it sits today

Interested to go through other peoples builds and find more stuff to do to it :D


If you have and questions don't hesitate to ask!

Hmmm, Id be leaving the engine standard, if you cant do what you want to do with a standard engine in low range, buy a cruiser ute. They are already screwing a lot of power and torque out of a relatively small engine, cant be much of a safety margin to eat into.

Just my opinion.

First major mods were the TJM bullbar and a set of mud tyres. These were King wheels and Federal Couragia MTs (i think). Noisiest tyres ive owned to date!

My previous setup in action on Moreton Island. Loved the swag and awning/awning tent setup but i dont think i'd go back after having the rooftop tent.

Yeh i get where you're coming from. I think if anything i'd just go for and exhaust and possibly a tune some time in the future. I'm not after big power gains or anything like that. It performs more than well enough from factory. My only issue is fuel consumption with the 33s.
