Great Warranty and Support from Lightforce and Opposite Lock

Agree. Lightforce is great! Had a few chats with Kerry regarding my ranger meetup bounty. Great advice, quick responses and nothing was too much trouble. My ROK20s are bloody brilliant too. Opposite lock FTG are awesome as well. Ben and crew provide great advice and spend the time. I enjoy walking a...

Two weeks ago I got my Lightforce interior light and my 3 customised double switches (won at the 2018 meetup auction!) https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180722/1d4863bbd7f4b34d895ba84a5d57f909.jpg Here is my interior light installed.

Getting my 30k service done today at chadstone ford. On display was the aeroklas gear. They now offer or maybe they have all along, ford licensed accessories like a drawer system.

Re: 2017 Silver Dual Cab XLS - Perth

My son (8 yo) has gone on a couple trips that Linc has set-up. He has a blast every time and loves Danger's jokes. My son has this keen ability to fall asleep and stay asleep on some of the "steepest" tracks in the HC.

DJ, truck looks sharp. Good choice with the wheels/tyres. 32’s? I also like the fact that you removed the checker plate from the steps and rear bar. I’m not a fan of them. Why did you install your secondary battery in the tub? Just curious... Will this exceptionally modded truck see some tracks? Sen...

Both need to be wired to high beams as you can’t split the single plate. Th...

Your rig looks absolutely brilliant!! Very jealous of your drawer system and winch. Great job pulling it together. Curious on how you wired your dual battery.
