Wow Paul there must be some weight you are carrying there. I presume the bull bar and rails are steel??

What capacity is the water tank and where is it mounted also again where and what re the long range fuel tank??

Did you do away with either of the 2 existing fuel tanks or add an extra??

Where did you mount the third battery??

With all that extra weight what is the fuel consumption and do you tow a camper/van with it??

Cheers...GL

Hi GL

Factory turbo models come with twin batterys as standard [extra cranking power for the diesel donk] 3rd battery sit's next to the fuel pump area on the passenger side , used for running goodies like the lights, fridge etc .

Bull bar & side rails are steel

Standard 96ltr fuel tank is still there in the middle , but the 45ltr 2nd tank has been replaced with a combo fuel & water tank = fuel size 122ltrs water 55ltrs , all up diesel is 218ltrs .
I like to do & plan the big outback desert runs etc .

No don't tow , I either take the swags or Southern Cross touring tent .

14.4ltrs/100kms was the normal , but with the new 3inch full mendrel bend exhaust it's down to 14.1ltrs/100kms , that's fully loaded & easy sitting around 100km/hour .
