within the next six months... I plan to get the inside and outside LineX'd so that will cost a few dollars there... lol..

Any build like this also requires full engineering for our RTA ... Roads and Traffic Authority... full brake and swerve test etc... $$$

Best of luck, sounds like a pain in the rear. I dropped my contraption for final body work and paint. Should be finished and driving it by mid April

Tailgate Tuesday... The JK Ute tail gate fitted and the rear fenders finished.


Locking the tailgate is the next thing then the tail lights ;-)

Few updated pics... Rear tray almost done... had to change the Anti Rocks and turn them around to get full clearance on flex.... Wired up the rear lights... need to make up a licence plate bracket and light... Going to order the LOD Shorty Destroyer rear bar and have ordered RSE auto rock slider steps...should arrive in end of January. Fuel filler pipe is next to sort out! complete new exhaust and probably a new turbo dump pipe to fit...

Once you've finished the body and chassis you need to Barra swap it for the full Aussie build

Awesome work. I love the tailgate. Did you make it or have it made? Looks like it was stamped? I don't believe I've ever seen custom stamped sheet metal like that before. Everything looks great but that tailgate really takes it up a notch.

G'day mate, Thanks. I designed it up and got the sheet made which was a flat sheet pressed. then we made up the frame and welded it in.
