My L200,

New on here so thought i'd stick some pictures up of my toy, not to everyone taste i know but it's purposes is what its all about. More aimed at winch challenges rather than crawling but hey ho,

Bought it as a lovely stock pick up -



Had NO intentions of doing much to it really, done a few mods and i was happy with this -



Got the bug and it evolved from here on in, alot of time, money and sweat put into the truck saw it change quickly quickly from road going jacked up to cut down shorty.




The bob tail didnt stay for long either, tray backing was on the cards. Thought it be rude not too cage him up too while the change was being done -



Its currently undergoing ANOTHER make over, this time its a new front end.

Spec -

2005 L200 Warrior
Straight through roof mounted exhaust
BMC enclosed air filter modified into snorkel
+ 3" Body lift kit
+ 2" Suspension lift kit
All pipes and levers etc... extended to suit lift kit
34" Extreme trekker tyres (6psi)
Locked front and rear axles
Full MSA spec external cage
Chassis at rear cut down 18"
Goodwinch TDS winch with plasma rope
Air spool on winch modified

New front end and front IFS mod's coming soon.

That exo cage looks good, I'm normally not a fan of them but it looks like it fits nicely, good job. Got any recent pics of it from farther away?

I am from Newcastle Upon Tyne (uk)

Stock 4d56 really, de-cat pipe, straight through exhaust and snorkel,

Cage is a brilliant fit, it's made to measure, the gaps to the bodywork are identical either side. Will get some newer pics from a distance and post them up

Managed to pick myself up a lovely Warn 8274 in mint condition for little monies. Going to service it and up-rate a few of the vital parts with gigglepin items, will post pics up when it's being fettled.

Also, a little update of pictures but nothing really to say yet other than a trick idea that is a must i think for L200's that are well used in the trails/mud -

Rear winch tray mount welded into place too -



Then abit time and attention went into the engine bay, removed the radiator and battery to make some space under there.Also went for an EGR removal kit while we were tinkering -





The new batteries are going to now live at the rear inside the cab. My trusty redtops still work and are reliable as ever but treat ourselves to -

Box section welded onto the rear tray stay for the mounting points for the radiator bungs to be grafted onto -






While waiting on some pipe and clips we cracked on with fitting up the new modified leaf springs, whata task!! We alread had polybushes the hangers and axle eyelet bolts so we weren't expecting a fight, we finally did get them off and these are what is left of the expensive poly bushes!! -
