Thanks for the link to this thread!

If anything it has made my wallet lighter! hahahaaa

I love the idea of the rear roll cage to mount the TT02, but as has been mentioned i would be concerned with center of gravity and added weight...... hmmmmm i need to think hard about this. Also i would need it commissioning as i dont own the workshop you do lol! Love it! Youda

Have not updated this in a while so i will bring you lot up to speed

2018 will be a Maintenance year for us to give us chance to get the Hilux ready for a couple of big trips in 2019

Mainly we need a new set of tyres as the garage that last did an aliment cocked up the chamber and the outside was worn very quickly in the last couple thousand miles, we will be sticking with the BFGs i think as we haven't got any complaints and this means we will only need four tyres rather then five  w00t

While we were away we got a set of rear spring assisters in the from of airbags supplied and fitted by West Coast off road



At the moment they are adjustable by independent shrader valves which requires use of an external compressor but on the way home from Scotland we paid a visit to stevie and picked up a mountable compressor with tank to provide on demand air. Thanks Steve!  UKOLP

Idea is being able to raise or lower the suspension height of the rear on the fly to help with multistory carparks and various load weight all done with a push of the button

This reopened the to-do list i thought i had finished  b00

To make way for this compressor the pressurized water system is going in favour of a simple hand pump installed in a Jerry Can cap. Simple but effective.

We didnt use the water system in the end really, maybe because it was in the way when cooking which caused us not to bother setting it up

Thats it for now really untill i think of something else!

Going the way i have with the water system. Paid a ?1.00 for my hand pump. Easy to use and no extra hassle to go wrong 😁😁😁😁

Exactly, nothing really to go wrong so won't stop working!

Plus it makes our water situation abit more fluid (pun intended) so we can place the Jerry can where ever it's out of the way but still accessable or simply leave it in the canopy and access it from one of the side windows

So work has started in the new bumper, the old one was abit too heavy so I redesigned it to be smaller and lighter while still doing practically the same job

Mate what a quality way to provide an update! The video makes it pretty easy to understand! As (i am guilty of this) when we are all typing away some times its difficult to picture lol

I am always quite glad Im not the only one who has alot of projects running at the same time lol! Good to see its a common mind set  ;D

I like this walk around style, as sometimes you can pick other stuff which isnt even in the content of the original vid, plus people like to be nosey and see what everyone else is rolling  ;D ;D ;D
