Ok fair bit of work going on as I am prepping for a 2019 Simpson crossing.

So old suspension came out... Weekend swap.
now running fox 2.0 coilovers in the front, was meant to be running fox on the rear but they didn't fit so I have toughdog 41mm in the rear.
heavy duty front springs with a 50mm lift, rear are 50mm kings springs with 300kg constant load.

Pulled all the 12v spaghetti out and rewired this with a proper fuse box and moved the vsr from the front of the engine bay to the back where it fits under the fuse box..

Hardwired in a 12v to 5v usb charger and a ram mount to hold and power the tablet running the maps.

Plumbed in the 3 22l jerry cans with a 12v pump so I don't have to keep lifting them in and out.

Fitted two spare tyre carriers to the roof rack

And used the extra space under the back for a 110l fuel tank... Gives me 190l or 2000km of range.

Next job new tyres and pack the car to go!!
