Finally picked up the new truck on Friday.

Fitted so far:

Isuzu-branded EGR Premium canopy
Rubber mats
Bonnet protector
Weather shields
Ute liner
Genuine towbar

My immediate to-do list:

TJM T13 bullbar, snorkel, side steps
Catch can
Driving lights (still deciding which, but like the look of the Ultra Vision Quattro Elite 35W HIDs)
Dual battery kit (ARB under body)
Icom IC-450 UHF + Motorola DM4601 commercial radio

Ute goes in to TJM tomorrow to have the bullbar and snorkel fitted. Steps are still on backorder.

70W Ultra Vision Quattro HID driving lights arrived today, and will go on this weekend. Both spread beam. Very nice of Ultra Vision to throw in a box of biccies with my purchase.

Rock on. A lot happening on the ute. Look forward to a photo when it's all done.

Bar and snorkel are on. The MY17 bar looks mint IMO, it fits the shape of the front of the vehicle really well.

Even has rated recovery points, I understand the previous TJM bars didn't.

The front end dropped about 15mm, and it's a little bit wallowy in corners now but otherwise not too bad. Suspension upgrade is on the list anyway.

If the front dropped 15mm, the toe in will have become more toe in than before, so it will need an adjustment otherwise the tread will feather on the inside edges of the tread ribs.

Coming along nicely, does the recovery point have a stamp on it ?

Good to know. New suspension is going on in about three weeks/~1500km's time. Obviously I'll get an alignment done when that happens, but reckon it's worth getting it adjusted before then?

Not that I can see, but it's been wet here pretty much all week so I haven't been that keen to crawl underneath it and look.

The bar does have a warning placard on the top of the bar on the passenger side.

And WW said, "let there be light", and there was light. (After lots of swearing and grazed knuckles getting my hands inside the bullbar.)

I put some anti theft nuts on, but I probably needn't have bothered. Not much room to get your hands inside the bar to bolt it up, so I imagine getting the lights back off can't be much easier. Best of luck to you if there's a winch fitted.

G'day WW, I've just landed here.

Do you happen to know the weight of your TJM bar please?
