  • Who's into 4WDing

    wanna know where a good place (read cheap) to go to for shocks/springs/lift kits/winches etc is.
    Ild be guessing that ARB, opposite lock etc would be the go but who can give me some cheap place to go for the money concious/students that are poor etc.

    dude.. 4wding isn't cheap. especially not through arb or opp lock.

    keep an eye on ebay for parts, shocks etc. unfortunately tho when you start needing the bigger stuff it's almost impossible to get anyone to ship for under a million dollars.

    other than that, you've got it.. arb and opp lock.

        WLS... 4x4 + student budget = ERR

        As soon as you start modding, you part with many many dollars.

          even without modding.. you start taking hard trails with anything a couple of years old or more and you're going to start shitting cv's/boots/axels/bushes/alignments etc etc.. the parts themselves aren't that deer, the labour is fucking horrendous..

                  Depends what you are after. Lift kits, bull bars, winches etc are all best sourced from the specialists who will sort you out with a matching package. Buying things individually from ebay can be a bit risky if you don't know what your doing. EG, springs falling out cos your shocky reach is too long.

                  But why do you want to change things? Aesthetic or functionality.

                  I drive an old Pajero and everything is stock. It's been to hundreds of beaches, towed a caravan across the Great Central Highway, Towed a camper trailer all round WA including some shithouse roads into Milstream and Karijini national parks without any problems.

                  A bog standard 4wd will get you where you want to go without modifications so long as you keep it maintained.

                  Winches and stff like that are a waste of money IMO in WA as the only time you use them are in mud or to winch yourself over rocks, neither of which we have much of here.

                  Good driving practices and correct tyre pressure will get you where you want to go without al those accessories.
                  To be old and wise you must first be young and stupid.

                    Tried the jump up in that there stock paj?

                    Whether or not you need mods depends more on how serious you want to get. I agree that a stock 4be will get to the places 90% of people want to go but not those that want to go a little harder. Theres a market for the gear for a reason.

                      I agree, but a student on a budget doesn't really fit that category.

                      Wanna be a rock climber???? Have a lawyers income.

                          hehehehehehehehehehe...

                          /$8k shopping list.

                          Firstly, what have you got?
                          I have an Jeep XJ Cherokee, and depending on what I want, and how much I want to do myself, the costs can vary. For me it will be settled at 5" of lift, with hardened suspension (longarms can come later) and trail armour. Also rebuilt diffs, axles and driveshafts.

                          Is it worth it? Fuck no. and mod $$$ is wasted. Fun, but wasted.
                          And you cant do things by half either. You change one thing, it places extra stress on other parts, causing failure, etc. Eg. I only have 2" of lift now, and tyres 2" diameter larger than stock. I have to replace steering Tie-rod ends every 6-8 months. at $20 each, 4 makes the set.

                            What year is it? I've been looking at getting one of these (the 1980's ones).

                              90 model. Last of the big window shape.

                              I know someone who has got a 89 model for 1500. Sadly it has a blown 2.5TD motor but don't know the details of what's specifically wrong.

                              Haven't seen it but body is supposed to be very good.

                              If your interested, I'll chase him up for a contact number.
