Had the OME comfort nitro suspension fitted. Came up 35ish mm quite a ride difference.
BFG KO2's 265/75/16.
All up just under 3" raise of vehicle which will help on the sand.


Mate they look good. I also want to put some bigger rubber on standard rims. any issues with rubbing?


Nothing at all, I don't know how they would go without higher suspension, but with the OME they work a treat. I heard that a ko3 is coming out ? Not that I will be getting new rubber for quite a while.


Looking good mate! The KM3s are coming out very shortly.. which has my leaning towards the muddies.. hmmm :?

Neoprene ARB seat covers pretty good fit. Will see how they go after a couple of camp trips.

Well finally did the FWH install as stated in other posts here very simple, but the bearings not so. I removed the black paste that looked like it was 6million km’s old, managed to get the bearings out without damaging the seal pressure washed and repacked bearings and reassembled, but bearings didn’t sound great, pulled the other side off to do, but bearings even worse on passenger side very little black paste, so just did the fwh & ordered new bearings for both front. So will pull apart again and replace as very rumbly.
Not surprised with the dryness of bearings.
Had more photos but got tired of resizing the photos to get it under size limit.
UHF next thinking the gme 330 ?

Hi Duck
Looks like the same FWH I got off Ebay. Don't know if it was just bad luck or I didn't torque them down enough but both sides came loose on the first trip away. Luckily the modified hub caps held in the bolt like you have done. I have now used thread seal and so far no problems

Did you throw away the gasket between the wheel hub and the FWH unit where the 6 ALLEN screw holt it on and use Loctite 516 sealant sparingly?

I’ll get to check it when I do the bearings, I carry the Allen key in case, but you won’t know until your bogged!
