Think she got a bit hot , was working real hard in the soft stuff right at the beginning [ about 3 ton loaded ] . Nice conversion though ..
 Pity the bloke who tried to recover him went like a bull at a gate and  pulled the recovery hook off the chev / damage to  both of them .

Polished alloy toolbox's. GTS dash. Won last 4 Cairns shows at best 4x4 and best ute and only shown at last 4 years. Very good head turner and good worker. Used in my business, modifying vehicles.

Always liked the Utes and tonner 4x4 conversions .. Range rover front and rear diffs  and Nissan 720 remote transfer cases were a common adaption to the ones built around here . :cheers:
