you're out of luck with the weather
it's been raining here in the foothills since yesterday pretty much non-stop
in fact there has been some roaring thunder & very heavy rain today we'll probably get some dry spells during the day.
it'll be quite cold up @ the pines, temp here today was a max of 14c & it's been getting down to -2c @ night

yeah mate I was all ready to do that kit but he doesn't do 4.3 ratio and for the price Im getting the second hand diffs for its easier to do it that way. Happy to have you all up at the farm for shed day to pull out and refit diffs and refit rear locker and install new front locker ( haven't done lockers before and I know u guys have done a few) then go out and test it out. If we make some new tracks out in the bush paddock (600 acres) it may become all aussie 4x4's training ground. make as much noise as we like oodles of firewood and tractor for recovery vehicle. I'm over driving a 2wd lux its been way too long

No worries you said the magic word "600 acres". Post a date and there might be more hands than you need!!!
