    Excellent build and looks bloody good. Itís going to be a nice shade of red dirt most of the time so close enough to orange.

    Looking forward to seeing your gold prospecting thread updates

    Thanks Greg and you are right about the red dirt.

    Ended up asking the local print shop to make whatever they thought would look good and they came up with this.
    Pretty good I reckon, hopefully I donít fuck it when I stick them on.

    Cheers mate, still need to fit water tanks to it which is causing some issues. I have two 60L tanks for it however due to
    how far inboard the springs are and the light 39mm axle when I put 40L inside the van the axle noticeably bends.

    Not sure if I should just fit a 50mm axle with parallel bearings or spend up and fit a full trailing arm independent set up.

    If the 50mm will take the weight you are planing then just do it and be done with it. No need to spend up big on fancy suspension on something you will be just dragging along being the wrangler. If the 50mm gets the job done and cheaply no need to over complicate imo.
