My MY12 4.8 GRX - Done my way

Post by scunick » 08 Jan 2015 12:00

My custom shop recently went about doing some work on my Patrol.

This car is now complete and the list of work is rather extensive to say the least.

New 33" Tyres and Dick Capek Wheels
3" EFS suspension lift
Custom Drop Boxes
Adjustable Panhards
Extended Drop Links
Chrome Delete from exterior of Car
Black anodised running boards
Colour coded snorkel
Custom Front Bar
Custom Rear Bar
Daylight Running Lights
LED Spot Lights
LED Light Bar
Plastic wood delete (replaced with Piano Black)
Full Sound and navigation Install (Kenwood and Rockford Fosgate)
Black Roof Lining

While I appreciate that this may not be to everyones taste I personally am very happy with the final product.

Nick looking at all the mods you have done on this it is not a show car but built for off road use! Where are your hi-lift jack and recovery points on the bumpers?

Ian,
The recovery points are in black under the front and rear bars. This is a tourer for the family and I so no hi-lift jack. I do carry a lift bag though that should get me out of 90% of stuff a hi-lift should.
My heavy duty offroader (an IFS Hilux with a Lexus V8) carries a hi-lift and has jacking points ;-)
Cheers

Nick

Nope... G-Man was unable to provide the drop boxes so we had them built off spec.

Very nice and sexy!!

I like the piano black interior and the white bumper really complements the front end!

Great job!

Hi Nick,

Welcome to the forum.

I love the look of your Patrol - obviously a lot of care went into the build.

What other work does your custom shop do?
