2014 PX XLS (Nearly) complete touring build

Post by CaptainMiik »

I’ve been a lurker on the forums for a while but decided to post some pics of my PX as my touring build up is nearly complete.

I got the car for a steal 18 months ago with 21,000km on the clock and an owner who had half built it.

It’s been my project and the last 18 months I’ve fine tuned it for touring with a young family travelling remote.

Image

List of modifications so far

EFS 2” lift (Came on vehicle) - GVM upgrade Lovell’s installed
ECU remap and 3” Manta exhaust (510nm and 156kw at the wheels)
EGR delete (part of tune)
Alloy canopy over steel flat tray (Came on vehicle)
TJM bar, steps and snorkel
CSA rims on 285/75/16 BFG KO tyres
140L ARB Frontier long range tank
60L Boab water tank mounted under tray with pump
CTek charger with 120AH AGM and inverter
Runva 11xp winch
Provent catch can
Drivetech primary fuel filter
Pioneer tray on canopy
Sunseeker awning
Hella 500mm pencil LED light bar up front
870mm LED Spreader amounted to the rack
2x rear reversing LED mounted to rack
Spare tyres fitted to rear canopy
Under tray toolboxes with hard wired compressor
Bonnet gas struts
Replacement honeycomb grill
Android head unit with HEMA maps, TPMS and reverse camera integration
Drifta camp kitchen passenger side
2x 950mm draws and MSA fridge slide with 80L dual zone Engel Passenger side

Last mods will be transmission cooler (oil/air) from Wholesale automatics and roof console from department of the interior to mount the UHF and Narva rocker switches.

Considered a front locker but the factory rear hasn’t let me down yet and while we do tour to out of the way places we don’t indulge in too much rock crawling etc.

Anyway looking forward to being a bit more active on here and learning a thing or two.

Canopy was from a place in town, I have the receipt at home I think.

Few more pics of the back, looking at fitting a ladder to access the roof rack from Dunn and Watson and a Jerry can holder but a little concerned about weight too far back.

Image

Drivers side without kitchen/gas bottle etc.

From box holds the battery, fuse box and inverter etc. If I had built that part I would have mounted it against the front of the canopy where it’s more easily accessible. Might strip it down one day when I have the time and inclination.

Image

Doesn’t show the rear LED lights as I only just fitted them, but room for the ladder and Jerry can holder.

Image

C-Tek battery monitor and storage space on top of the drawers. Would like to swap for aluminium from Off-road systems but that’s more $$$.

I’ll also have rod holders inside the full wings for the canopy.

I’m at work for another couple weeks but I’ll have a look at the dimensions when I get back.
