Reptilechick's MUMU Truck!

Postby reptilechick » Sat Jun 12, 2010 4:18 pm

Hi all,

Had my MU for 3yrs now and I luv her to bits! Wouldn't trade her for anything! Have done a few mods and more to come. Thought I would share a bit with you all here! Hope y'all like her!

Modifications and Accessories:

Suspension: Calmini upper control arms and Calmini Extended Shackles, TJM XGS shocks, Ball joint flip, wound out Torsion bars
Body Lift: standard
Tyres/Wheels: Cooper STT's 265/75/R16
Traction Aids: standard
Bullbar: TJM TF Rodeo alloy bar
Spot lights and Lighting: 2 Lightforce Blitz on Bullbar, Crystal Altezza lights - front, side and rear
Communications/GPS: GME UHF
Dual Batteries: Red arc dual Battery System
Engine: 3.1 Turbo 4JG2, blanked EGR's
Exhaust: 2 1/2" I think...!?
Sound system: Kenwood Stereo, Pioneer speakers. Ipod compatible
External: Airflow snorkel, Bug Deflector, Mudflaps, Isuzu Alloy Side Steps (steel reinforced), tow hooks front & rear, Tinted Windows, Rhino Roof racks, tow bar
Internal: Back seats removed, Boost gague, fire extinguisher

In progress:
Interior being colour coded black and red (was brown), draws being made for back, stainless water tank to go in footwell (from Pissy), 4 spots to go on front roof rack, flexi flares

To come: (when I save up more money!)

Hey all,

Haven't done many more mods since I was last here. Am looking at putting my girl up for sale :( She is just not strong enough to tow 2 horses in my float. Can I ask you all for a ball park figure on price pls? Am happy for PM's to be sent. I have no idea what to ask for her, she is worth her weight in gold to me!!!

Or does anyone have any ideas how I can make her more ballsy to pull my horse float loaded up?! I really dont wanna sell her

Rob I bought a 2011 Colorado dual cab, steel tray and steel bullbar.

So my MU will be up for sale by the end of Feb, still trying to work out a price, let me know if anyone here is interested. Will be sad to see her go, had her for 6yrs and done many Oz trips with her :(
