OK,
Thanks for the update.
I am referring to the Y61 facelift/mk4 then.
I can start from scratch or it just seemed to me more economical to adapt the pre mk4 design.
Thanks.
Riaan

Ek het vir my mudflaps op gesit en het sommer die hi-lift jack gebruik sonder om die wiel af te haal. :thumbup:

Rob88, when are you planning to start? I would also like to be able to fit a big mudflap behind the rear wheels to avoid rocks against my trailer on dirt roads. Please bear in mind in your design.

The facelift is different the recovery point protrudes further out so one design will not fit all.

This is awesome! How's progress going Rob88? I like the rectangular lights on the LAS one pictured below. Can you do this mod? Also the jeep pictured below has a sweet rack up top. Could be a nice optional extra. I'm definitely keen.
