    Beauty 100 Motoz. Id sure like to trade my 220,000 mile UZJ for a 100,000 mile HDJ! What part of Oz are you in?

    Rkruger- I like functional steps, but the factory boards on these are only a couple of inches shy of the actual floor. All they do is get your pants dirty getting in and out.
    '94 Santa Monica Airlines 39" longboard, Indy 159s, Powell AT wheels
    '99 UZJ 100 with OME, 255 ST Maxs and factory locker.
    '14 Dodge 3500 6.7, 68RFE with Thurens, 5100s, 305/70-18 ST Maxxxxxs
    '17 Northern Lite 9-6 Q. Factory ordered to my spec.
    '74 Airstream International 29'

    Default Motoz 2004 HDJ100R Kakadu 4.2TD

    Thanks for the input guys.
    I do like the side steps though as mentioned above they are quite flimsy.

    Eventually I'll get a dedicated slider for the sides. I like the fact that they protect the sills from damage. I can't imagine I'll be doing any heavy duty off road work yet added protection is always a bonus.

    Got a couple more mods done today. Installed my Icom IC-440 UHF radio and fitted a genuine bonnet protector.





    I'm still waiting for my awning brackets to arrive. Should hopefully be here tomorrow. It really is starting to take shape.

    Today's mission install of a Safari 4x4 SS86HF snorkel.



    Install was pretty straight forward. Drilling a 114mm hole in the guard was an effort with the bulge wheel arches. All went well in the end.

    Brackets for the awning still haven't arrived from the laser cutters.

    So the brackets arrived today !!!

    3mm lazer cut stainless to mate a Alucab 270 Shadow to the Rhino platform.



    Bolt up was pretty straight forward. I under slung the mounts for a little lower mounting position.





    Very happy with the final instal. Took a lot longer than I thought as I kept second guessing everything...

    Nice looking rig!
    As a dreamer of dreams and a travelin' man,
    I have chalked up many a mile.
    Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks,
    And I've learned much from both of their styles.
