After our son wrecked my 2012 green one, i own my brand new black Space Cab for a while now:

Removed nearly all badges:

To still know, what it is:

The Rasta 4x4 Rocksliders arrived:

I know that they are not parallel to the body. I had to mount these heavy things all alone, so i was glad when the were finally mounted ;) This will be fixed soon.

The grille is black again and there are still some minor optical changes, like further "dechroming", to come.
The bigger ones are a bullbar, skid plates and a winch, which will come later this year.
Also an electrical engine preheater and a stationary battery charger will be installed.

Twin Turbo??? That's cool. Like the Isuzu Diesel badge also. What's the power figures for yours?? We get a 2.5 next year.

It's the new 2.5 Litres Twin-Turbo Diesel engine with 120kW (163 HP) and 400NM torque.
Soon i'll have an OBD-tuning, which will bring the engine to 200 HP and 470 NM.

I also came further with the bullbar.
It won't be an ARB or similar. They look too massive to me and we also don't have so much deer on the roads. I need one for a winch.
As i read here, AFN is also known here, but has got some difficulties with the delivery to Australia. Luckily i'm sitting here in Europe, where it's no problem to get them.
I think about this one, but without the tubes around the headlights.

Yeah but won't an orange bar look a bit odd on a green Dmax? Or it that a European thing? :D :D :D

Tink you are obviously not up to date! Don't you remember that my son crashed the green one? It's black now! :lol: :lol: :lol:

On the other hand a redhead looks pretty in a green dress as long as it's a woman ;)

Finally i've got my AFN-Bullbar installed.

As Ben (Morphias) mentioned, the worst things to mount were those valances. It took us more than an hour to have them fitted. After all, we used some clipnuts and a greased wrench to hold the screws in place.

Lots of things to unmount:

Meanwhile the winch was mounted. You can also do this afterwards because there is enough space from above, but it's easier to to it before the bar ist installed.


Image

Image


Then we've put the heavy part several times in place and off again, to make sure where the plastic was to cut out.

View from above:

I don't like the massive gap between bar and fender and there have some cosmetics to be done. But on the other hand the bar is directly boltet to the frame, so there won't be so many possibilities left.


Image


And here is the whole thing. The guys at the shop meant, that it would look "insectoid". :mrgreen:

As soon as the weather calms at my place, i'll take some better pictures.

Looking good.
Find the front has settled a fair bit with the bar and winch with the OME suspension ?

Not remarkable. Got the stage one OME for around 50-60 kg extra payload. The bar weighs around 30kgs and the winch with the synthetic rope 25kgs. Should fit.

But i didn't measure before and after. So it maybe has come down a bit.
