Testing out the 4wd. Very steep low-range ascent on fairly tame ground, followed by a low-range DAC descent on the other side. Worked well :)

    just seen the comment on the next photo..... new wheels indeed !
  • Xenedis said:
    Yep, looks like something out of the vehicle maker's product literature.
    What's the story with the PRADO plate? If it's a Photoshop job, it's very good...

    That was the look I was going for :-)
    Yeah, it's a 'shop job on the plate, and yes, it was a total bastard to do.
    :-) All ready for a grand adventure!

    Wow Dave! Sweet photo!

    I looked at the original image, and the 'Shoppery is very convincing, down to the light reflections on the edges of the letters.
    I would have just blanked the plate entirely. :-)

    Way to go Dave- congratulations
    looks like a comfortable ride
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Geoff - first attempts at "brochure quality" car shots.
    It's still a little bit rough at the absolute full size, when pixel peeping. Couldn't just blank the plate, there was grass in front of it, and it would have looked like a poor 'shop job. :P
  • David de Groot said:
    Sure is Kath - waaaaay more comfortable than the old Triton was.

    Great shot Dave! And congrats on the new ride!
    Agree with J, that 'shop is excellent!

    Thanks Tim :)

    Where's the ice and snow like the promo pics?!!? I'm not convinced! :)
  • David de Groot said:
    Oh the only ice in Qld is in your fridge freezer :P

    Wow Dave you lucky thing. Christine has been on my case to up grade. They are a load of fun.

    You've got a 120 series haven't you ? (I recall seeing one in your stream). The big differences are that the 150 series has 30L less fuel capacity, and the far back row of seats (2 only), fold into the floor. Oh sure the VX and Kakadu (the new Grande), have KDSS (dynamic air suspension), but the GXL doesn't.
