Hi from Australia....2005 GU Patrol ute (pick up)

Hi all.
This is my Nissan, that i may have to sell soon (see general 4x4 discussion)
A quick rundown...
2005 Nissan Patrol (GU DX) Coil cab.
4.2L turbo intercooled straight six diesel (factory stock)
Manual 5 speed
3 inch lifted Dobinson Coils all round
4 inch extended, 12 way adjustable Boss Shocks (45mm bore)
castor bushes
extended lower control arms, and upgraded from stock 1.2mm wall tube, to 3.2mm wall tube
extended brake lines
Crankcase catch can
Boost controller set at 11psi
Solar panel and regulator mounted on alloy toolboxes.
Iron man winch rebuilt with 500amp solenoid, 15000lb dyneema rope, 5.5hp motor etc
Custom bar work and sliders. (haven't chopped the tray up yet, as i may be selling it as mentioned)
Uniden UHF, Pioneer CD/MP3/Bluetooth etc deck, Clarion splits flushed in the doors, 2 x 8 inch subs behind the seats.
Aftermarket cruise control
3 inch snorkel
Dick Cepek FCII's in 285/75/16 (33's approx)
and a few other bits and pieces

I use it for touring, camping and tackling some very remote destinations....
just for reference, im in a mining town in outback Western Australia, so the closest town is approx 500km's away.
If you break down, you may not see anyone for a month or 6....so reliability is the key out here lol.
Mobile phone reception drops out 20km's from any town, so you really are alone..
here are a few pics....
