    The key differences are no pathetic DPF choking the system and the switch from a Jatco model to an Aisin one, which is rated to handle the extra power

    Been happy with this thing. She's got 251,000 on the clock now.

    Finished off the bullbar install with some pinch weld and whatnot. Happy with the look.
    Also added an awning. These seem fairly useless, need a wind breaker/wall thing. Will be handy for putting a swag under I guess.


    I've been noticing a knock from the front end on rough bumps etc, and got under there earlier this week and noticed that the shock absorber bushes are fukt. The shocks themselves are not fantastic either, so Bilstein shocks and 2" raised lovells it will be!

    That vehicle doesn’t look like it has over 250k on it and that is a credit to you mate.

    Does look tidy.
    I'm considering going to Bilsteins on the Chally in the future, currently running Ultimates which iirc are Gabriel, at least they used to be.
    When you installed the bullbar did you keep the OE reo bar? I'm seriously considering pulling my TJM bar off and trimming abit more of the plastic for better airflow and maybe ditching the reo so I can squeeze a bigger intercooler in.

    The reo bar got turfed in the bin save for two small sections to support the bumper bar cheeks under the headlights. This was as per the ARB instructions.



    One fkn day I'll get this down to Dalecunt for a tune!

    Some pretty sharp Bilstein / Lovells Pricing..

    Once you have your pricing - let me know how much and part numbers and I will see if I can get it cheaper for you...

    Time for an update..

    Have had this Optima AGM here for as long as I can remember and with a new fridge on it's way I thought I'd better get it installed.

    This battery was too large to install in the engine bay, and they perform better in a cooler climate, so I chose to install in the boot.



    I don't have a multi tool and couldn't be arsed buying one so I set about cutting this shit out with black panthers. Next time I'll buy the multi tool.



    There's just enough clearance for the battery with regular terminals up top. I'll run from this with 6B&S to a distro/fuse block at a later date.

    I chose to run 6B&S twin from the main battery to the rear battery, it should have more than enough ccc for the job. This was easily the worst part of the whole job.









    The engine bay work is temporary and will change at a later date, so forgive the cable tied circuit breaker lolz... I'll be getting a nice alloy plate or enclosure made up for this area in here to mount that breaker and some lighting relays at a later date.



    Originally the car had a 50A anderson plug at the rear hooked up through that '70amp' oex relay, triggered with an ignition on signal. I want that anderson outlet to be always powered so I've hooked it up to the load side of the redarc relay for now and removed that relay and it's associated wiring completely.




    That's where they pinchecd the ignition on source for the relay, no idea if this is a common practice place to do this, but I certainly wouldn't have.




    Can't even tell it's there All I need to do now is to install some rivnuts and a hold down bracket for it, and run a vent tube out into a wheel well.

    While I was feeling productive, I set about installing a pair of cheap LED's I scored for a song off a friends old truck.



    Relatively straight forward job. Produce plenty of light that's for sure. Wanted to go test them last night after i'd finished, but id had too many beers whilst installing them

    Should probably get some stedi led fog lights to fill those holes now

    Finally pulled my finger outta my arse and did a valve set on the engine today.. Replaced the timing chain guide too just for peace of mind.
    Was pleased to fund that only one intake rocker (rear valve on #4) required adjusting.. Although it was twice the recommended gap! Ever so slightly quieter at idle now which is nice.

    Next up is all front ball joints and tie rods/rack ends.. Well overdue! Hopefully I'll have the kit next week.

    Does the NS have a "smart" alternator? I keep seeing comments that the PC Challenger does which may cause an issue when I get around to putting a second battery in.

    It's not a major headfuck. Just means you can't run a cheaper voltage relay based solenoid, but rather a more expensive BCDC type or "Battery to Battery" type charger that can understand what the alternator is doing.

    Not yet. It's only powering my waeco and occasionally a couple of camping lights.

    It's also 6 b&s which is rated to 125A, I've got it protected by a 90A cb

    Will be fine unless you use the manual override while starting, in which case it will probably trip the cb.

    Yep I've left the override disconnected for now, no plans to use it. And yeah the cb will def trip if I try to start the car through that breaker lol!

    Had a waeco cf50 for about 8 months now and been wanting to get a slide for it for ages, ended up grabbing. The kings 60l one for cheap. However it's way too wide for it, but anyway..
    Started to mock up a false floor for the boot area so the fridge had something solid to mount to. I was keen to build a shelf but might do that at a later date..

    Don't look too closely.. Might need to get edo to take the next lot of photos

    Been chasing some gu alloy wheels for this thing for ages. I ended up finding some, painted them duplicolor gunmetal and some generous coats of clear.
    Not 100% happy with the finish of the wheels and despite loving the look on others' paj's I'm not sold on it for me. Perhaps it's just the colour of the wheels.. I originally wanted to go anthracite but couldn't find anything close to that without buying overseas..

    New suspension is on its way also.. Ordered bilstein/Lovell heavy duty kit with ready struts, pre assembled. Should be a good thing

    With 270k km on the stock suspension and dragging its arse everywhere like a sloth I figured it was time for a suspension upgrade.. Grabbed some heavy duty bilstein/Lovells ready struts and springs/shocks for her.
    Work sent me home because I tore my Ac ligament in my left shoulder, so I fitted it up yesterday in my spare time! Lol
    Really happy with the result. A little stiff in the rear but she will settle down nicely.
    Had a wheel alignment today too, another damn adjuster bolt seized! I've already replaced a sized camber bolt up front, this time its a rear toe bolt.

    Time for a Ecu remap now I reckon lol!

    I just bought a 2014 exceed and going from a 4.2 gu ute for the last 10 years and never owning a flash car it's nothing short of a treat. Don't get me wrong, the patrol is a great ute with a few upgrades and 20psi but the paj is full of goodies and drives like a new commo. My only gripe is it'll a little rigid but a new 2" lift should sort that out. I'm also a fan of it not costing like 260$ to fill up.

    Yeah they're not a bad thing mate, certainly easier on the fuel and more comfortable to tour in
