Re: Looking for some wisdom and advice !

That price seems low for a cruiser with that mileage? And the patrol you could probably get the price even lower. Anyway, I wouldn’t worry too much about parts for a patrol on a trip.

Re: Loose driver seat

Mine does the same.
I actually don’t notice it anymore even.

I can’t remember who I mentioned it to long ago and they said there’s no fix for it. If that’s true or not I don’t know

Re: 4.8L Performance upgrade options

I'll chuck my opinion into the hat then as well - I would recommend only going as far as the exhaust, even if it doesnt help with the power, starting up a free flowing 4.8 puts a smile on the face everytime. Mine had a chip on as well from the prev owner. I have unplugged it though. The main reason ...

Its a lot of work to do a deep clean especially on the Patrol.

Its Huge!!
100%!! I tried doing it once on mine - even undid and pulled out dash and console panels etc. I still didnt manage to get it to look good though! I think mine is just too dirty :rolling:

Re: Patrol Spotting

Luckily the side-steps and back bumper are wrong, otherwise, I may have had to have an uncomfortable chat with here about where she was gallivanting at night... :rolling: :rolling: :rolling: Hahaha!! I was thinking exactly the same thing when I fi...

Re: Just for fun - costs for a 4.2 td conversion on a GU

Ok, interesting, thanks Michael.

And then what’s easier to convert? A 3.0, or 4.5? Or doesn’t it really matter?
