Wheel Car Automotive parking light Tire Automotive side marker light
Automotive parking light Tire Wheel Car Land vehicle


Changed the front, got the rear flares on,
Have lost the rhr flare seal and the others are just hanging on for dear life.
I'm keeping the old panels and headlights incase I change my mind.
These beds are rare here in Australia, so I preferably don't want to roll the guards

Also need to look into somehow adjusting the front bar as it doesn't sit flush on the ends with the flare/guards. I did buy those driftspec quick release guard pins lol

2013 dash:
Automotive tire Vehicle Tire Automotive lighting Motor vehicle
still needs to be painted as it's a shade lighter than the repaint
Refitted (after)
roof lining repainted.
Wrap dash
Dash cluster, temporarily wrapped.
Interior update
Had to drill holes to fit the centre handbrake instead of the dash mount type. Just need the something for a gearbox boot & replace the seats.
Oh and to pull the whole dash to repaint it the correct shade of black as the rest is.
I even painted the door seals

Centre handbrake swap
This was fun to drill in.
The handbrake isn't attached yet as I have a whole different diff in... I'll post that up soon

Chopped original bracket
Welded up an electric power steering bracket mounted,
All wired up & running
Need to buy and mold some fender lining to hide it.
Also realized I need to upgrade the alternator as this killed the battery not long after a day of using it. boy do I miss power steering.

10tonne over head crane
This is a long post, tried to keep it short.

Picked up a 1990 isuzu trooper rear end. Yes rodeo etc is a good swap but those are harder to find and after fitting this diff in. Zero regrets.
Close up
Wasn't a fan of the weld spots, so smoothed them all off
Painted
quick repaint (after), unfortunately got below temperature so wasn't perfect mid way through.
Trooper pinion clearance
clearance concerns,
Isuzu trooper 1990 g80
Perches needed to be rewelded about an inch out. cut one perch off, adjust align, triple check, tac weld.
Cut other perch off, adjust, align etc.
Sanded

Just about ready
left the 3rd member alone.
Brake caliper
calipers painted, these weren't easy to get my hands on, in Australia.

Custom tail shaft was made by a shop, with the 2000 & 1990 tail shaft provided.
3rd member flange was about 10mm difference of the holes compared to the 2000 frontier tailshaft.

It's been about 5months now with this diff in, and zero regrets- so much better with the LSD and disc brakes, just need to sort out the non-existent handbrake cables

Looking good, I found a 1990 Terrano with a HB233 diff with 4.625 gears. Might see if I can get it, need the lower ratio,my 4.11 is to high.
