    FG Single to Dual Cab

    You want to do what???? Dans suggestion is wise. Huge amount of to and money any other way. Also very easy to convert MWB to SWB if you really want to shorten it. Shorten the front end of the rear chassis rails by 600mm and remove the short front tail shaft. It'd be a fun little family truck...

    2013 ATW Mitsubishi 4x4 camper - For sale (Sunshine Coast)

    Hi Ben.... The truck interior turned out amazing. Looks like your house a bit. John showed a couple of pics on his phone.

    Maximum fording capability

    That was Engineer speaking from experiences mainly on Cape York which is often worse than the beach... Cause you'll be driving for long period in high temps then come to a deep creek crossing and the hot diffs will suck water in. When we drive buses on the beach the diffs don't get as hot...

    Haha.... There you go. Crazy to cross Eli like that. That looks a lot worse than the creeks we hit. Eli flows 80m litres a day so you've also got the current to deal with there. There was an F250 swept out there a couple of years ago. What was left didn't look pretty on the tilt tray.

    An absolutely crazy day on the beach today. 2nd biggest tides of the year having to travel ********** on the top of the high. Made for some interesting creek crossings. Engineer is in the FTS.
