I like the look of the transits, dump it, wide rims and tyres, flares, limo tint and a debadge would be a tough look!!

Got me some of these fancy rhino multi use holders. Good bit of kit for carrying stuff on the rhino racks. Tool-less install in about 5 seconds. Might carry the fishing rods at some point ;) ImageImageImage

Got my 2 new xls utes coming next week. In the build at tjm at the moment. Gotta say the new satnav (aftermarket) and huge screen is very impressive. See how it performs out on the road but it is running some sort of google system. More pics when i get them next week. CheersImageImage

Its ranger breeding season! Yet again ford service disappoint and enter into an argument about dual batt/disable smart charge mode. ONLY after saying i wont take delivery today of 100 grands worth of new rigs, does the man appear with a lap top and dongle thingy. Amazingly they can enable dual batt mode. Fitout begins tomorrow! Cheers. Ps- i need a bigger shedImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Nice lineup! I see they removed the pointless hooks on the tub on the XLS models! Looks better. What tyres on the new ones?

Heavy duty barrier and mounting using existing tub rollbar mounts. A worthwhile install for anyone with a canopy and carrying loose items. CheersImageImage

How have you found the 17 update xls compared to the previous ones? Definately looking the goods!
Does your oil light go out before you start the engine?

17 update has few more options than my early my17. Also the tjm new bars look way better. No tub external tie downs also looks slick rick. Cheers

had the 30k done yestie. new drive belts (wtf), cabin filter; fuel filter; oil filter; air filter; oil; wheel alignment; tyre rotation; gear knob ordered (manual shifter and all inprinted digits have worn off) - warranty; number plate globes - warranty; car wash (shiza job - very clear cbf coz its a work hack) ----> $880.

side note for all those considering cleaning your genuine air filters with a blow out etc. i have in my hand the dealer issued bulletin specifically saying DO NOT BLOW OUT GENUINE AIR FILTER, replace only. blowing out pleated airfilter may result in significant turbo damage. damage to turbo associated with blown out air filter is NOT covered by warranty. $60 for a new oem air filter. cheers y'all :twisted:

Was the new drive belt covered under warranty? Serious premature wear.
