    Default Motoz 2004 HDJ100R Kakadu 4.2TD

    I'm undertaking a new build. With a growing family I had to move on from the duel cab utility I had previous.

    I wanted a turbo diesel wagon, automatic with all the comforts. I decided on the 100 series with the well proven 1HDFTE 4.2lt turbo charged 6 cylinder. Simple direct injection pre common rail.

    After looking for about 12mths I found a Kakadu model. 5sp Auto, leather, centre console fridge, duel fuel tanks etc. This one was in pristine condition with immaculate paint and interior for a 13 yr old vehicle.
    With only 100k miles on the clock it's just run in !!!







    The highly rated power plant



    It came with the ARB front bar and IPF driving lights. I've started assembling all the parts for my build. I'm setting the old girl up for distance touring with plans to do a lap of Australia in the near future.

    In Australia all the 100 series are IFS. The 105 series are solid axle. They use the 80 series chassis and drivetrain with the 100 series body.

    I got a little shed time today.

    First install was a pair of rated front recovery points. These replace the factory tie down points that are bolted to the chassis.



    Next up was to replace the factory side indicators with some clear Altezza style. This mode serves zero purpose yet it pure aesthetics...





    It updates the look and matches the rear lights a lot better.

    The third easy mod was to swap out the 170mm IPF driving lights that came with the car. I had kept the Narva 225's from my last vehicle. These have been retrofitted with a 55w HID kit. Both are in a spread patten so put out a decent amount of light.



    I have put together a store of upgrades that I'll work through during the week as I set the old girl up for our Xmas holiday trip.



    Let the mods begin !!!

    Great looking truck. Where did you source the recovery points?

    They were bought through Marks 4WD here in Oz.

    Thanks mate. Yes the 4.2TD is fantastic to drive. Super smooth.

    I fitted up the roof platform today. I was deciding between Frontrunner and Rhino. I like the flat tray and preferred the Rhino as the slats run lengthways as opposed to tie Frontrunner that run across the roof.

    The Rhino was a few hundred dollars cheaper also. I went the largest size they make 2.1m x 1.4m (6'11" x 4'8")



    Off with the old Rhino Aero bars...



    Requires a minor bit of assembly...





    Next up mounting the awning.

    Thanks for the response and the link. Nice beefy parts. I know I am probably in the minority, but I like the steps as well. Keeps wayward debris off the rockers and may provide a needed lift for the little lady. It a perfect combo
