    Good run from your first clutch. Ours died at 140K (Fisheries NSW owned it for the first 40K of it's life) so went with HD Exedy SMF and new clutch. I really like the current setup. You will be set for probably 15 more years now!

    Saw your GU on "Your 4x4" yesterday on Aurora, looked pretty nice Rich.

    Not sure how old the episode was though
    Cheers Jon

    G’day, well the GU is still going strong. I ha e put 50k on the new clutch. We just returned from a trip up to Bundaberg with time spent on the Sunshine Coast over Xmas and the New Year. Just shy of 5k and the Patrol just cruised along without issue.

    We did the Condamine River 4wd Tk on our way back south.

    Cheers
    Rich.

    Seems like the other day we were speaking about you getting the clutch replaced !!
    5,000kms, thats a decent roadtrip holiday. Look forward to seeing some pictures/story about the trip.

    2.8's Sound great, but a worked 3.0L goes better

    After 9 years my old ARB awning has seen better days. It was 2.5 x 2.0. I have just picked another new ARB awning this time I went 2.5 x 2.5 I figured I got many years out of the old one why not stick to it.

    Cheers

    That's a fair effort for 9yrs as it got a fair old workout. Did you keep the old one in case you need spares? I noticed in ARB the other week they now have awnings in a hard case instead of vinyl.
