I'd love to share my ideas.
1st: Suspension upgrades. 1.5" - 2" lift, 300kg constant load coils, front torsion bars.
2nd: Tires. Not sure what I'm going to get though but something taller and skinnier. No wide tires
3rd: Engine tuning. Looking for aftermarket intercooler for the diesel engine, EGR removal, 2.5" turbo back straight pipe, snorkel. Also will add more engine gauges: pryometre, oil pressure, turbo boost.
4th: Interior mods. Remove 3rd row seating, build camping cabinets (fridge/cooler, stove, sink, and storage) arrange a sleeping arrangement of sorts (have yet to work out options) build a folding table that attaches to rear door. Recover front seats with a more breathable material (currently has vinal)
5th: Exterior mods. Remove all plastic fender flares and plastic trim from lower doors. Fill in any clip holes. Paint box guard on lower doors and rockers. Remove running boards and replace with a well hidden rock slider. front and rear bush bumpers. Extra driving lights. An aluminum roof rack. Rear bumper will also have a jerry can and water can holder, a tow hitch and recovery points.
I know this sounds like a lot of extra weight but I'm hoping to save weight on the stuff that I remove. I'm also trying to build things brilliantly to save weight as well.
These are ideas that are liable to change. Can't wait to see it happen though
