Thank you for the compliment!
Iím about to change over the accommodation electrics to 24v with LiFePo4 batteries and provision to charge from the alternator.
Also planning to swap out those lights on the roof rack with an LED light bar to save weight & power and put plasma rope on the winch in place of steel cable.
Would like to put the bull bar pictured earlier in this thread on it too, but need to watch the weight as it close to the dreaded 7.5t.
Does anyone on here have experience of the more modestly priced LED light bars?  You can spend £150 or £1000 and I suspect itís the law of diminishing returns.....

Dan.

Speaking of your roof rack, be careful how much weight you put on it, the cab mounts can collapse if you put too much weight on, the same applies to fitting roll cages

Youíre spot on regarding the rack.  The day we picked it up one snapped and a second the next day.  Itís another part I need to re-engineer.

It's a classic problem, especially when people start putting spare wheels up there  :-\

I do like the front grill when itís the same colour as the cab it modernises them 👍
