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

With all this talk lately on the 4.2 turbo diesels, as well as me watching a lot of Ausie 4x4 YouTube shows with brilliant 4.2 diesel GUs, I’ve been wondering, just for fun for now, how easy would it be and what kind of costs involved if we could find a really buggered GU, maybe something like a pop...

Re: Portable Luna box and other questions

Thats a bummer with that extra cable and connectors, but, could you not plug that cable into the output brad harrisson plug on the outside of the box rather than having those extra battery connections?

Re: Shocked

Not surprised. The lifts for our little hyundai i10 boot are buggered - hyundai quoted close to R2k each! :lol: Ive been struggling to get aftermarket ones that work though, Midas keep supplying me with ones that are far too weak. Ive actually given up on going backwards and forwards to Midas now. :...

Very odd.

My beer can fits perfectly in the cup holder. And let me tell you, it’s been well used! :wink:

Otherwise, I dont really see the point?

I need to start playing the long game now already to get the go ahead for just me to go. :) Obviously if the list fills up with definites before I can give a proper ...

Re: Patrol Written off

Geez man, terrible news, sorry about that!
Just shows though, patrols don’t get killed by conventional methods! :)

Seems like a great deal for someone keen on a project to buy this one from insurance though hey?
