Re: North Stradbroke Island - Qld, Australia

Nice work Kev. We did Fraser Is at 22psi with no problem. Love those rock rails! How did the mats go catching sand?

Forgot to mention the mats .... Awesome! They caught heaps of sand and just took a quick hose down to clean.

Would definitely recommend the Slush Mats to everyone, including the cargo mat.

I'd love to do Fraser - just not confident enough yet on my own! Hopefully do it as another camping trip with friends.

Kev.

Re: North Stradbroke Island - Qld, Australia

Guys I have a MY12 CRD Limited. I have done fraser in various 4WD's over the years including late model Jackaroo's, Dual Cab Colorado and a Landcruiser. All vehicles have been stock, but they also had LSD fitted as standard (possibly not on the colorado)

How do you think the Limited would go (i don't have Quadra-lift or Quadra-Drive II) as they have to be pre-fitted and i couldn't find any at a reasonable price

if you drive correctly and with about 15-18psi you should have no worries

That is seriously awesome. Love the picture of the Jeep on the beach with the ocean for a background.

Re: North Stradbroke Island - Qld, Australia

Hi kev, regarding rock rails. Did you install? How difficult would you say and time taken. I've heard it's a task.
Cheers also for the recovery hook eBay link

Hi Paul, sorry for the late reply I must've missed the post.
Anyway......

I used the following tools:

- trolley jack (for raising the rail to the car)
- 10mm short socket
- 13mm short & deep socket (deep is for the 3 bolts under the car and to assist installing the push on lock nut on the 12 bolts at the front of the sill)
- 10mm ratchet spanner (makes easy work of the 8 bolts for the back of the sill)
- 13 mm ratchet spanner (make sure it's relatively 'thin' - I used this on the 12 nuts for the front of the sill where the nut didn't take to the bolt the right way at first)
- medium flat head screwdriver (to assist installing the push on lock nut on the 12 bolts at the front of the sill and to remove the foam from the sill ends)
- hammer (to remove the existing rivets holding the plastic sill cover over, and then bend a bracket slightly out of the way)
- chisel (to remove the existing rivets holding the plastic sill cover over)
- torque wrench
- battery drill / rattle gun (one all the nuts/bolts are on loose I used this to make life easier and quicker prior to using the torque wrench)
- vacuum cleaner (hold the hose adjacent to the hole in the sill where you remove the foam using a screwdriver - its much quicker!)
- loctite (used on all nuts and bolts to prevent them from becoming loose)
- Allen key (comes with the kit)
- scissors / tin snips (used to trim the wheel liner)

Looking at this it may seem like a big job - it really isn't too difficult, just time consuming.

I installed the first one in five hours after work on a Friday on my own. I then did the second side on the Saturday morning in just over two hours, again on my own. I took my time being careful not to damage anything, and had the instructions open on my bench along with the iPad of photos from this forum!

If you have any questions just ask!

Kev.
