Fitted a set of recovery trax - doubt they will ever be required

Also I got in before the local gubbermunts 40% import duty kicked in on imported tyres and fitted a set of 6 x 285/75 16 Mud Terrain Radar Renegade rubbers

Where'd you snag the side flares for your troopy?

Bought from a crown in Pretoria ZA called Onca Off Road
But the flares are Kut Snake brand imported from Aussie

Short Update

Decided that the front Bullbar needed a spruce up - so the solution was to Raptor coat the bullbar

Rather than hours of sanding I removed the bar and sent it for sandblasting.

Then I gave it 2 coats of etch primer

Then it got 2 coats of Raptor Liner black

I dont like the rough lumpy finish most people get with the Raptor, I wanted a more fine textured finish, so I bought the Raptor Professional spray gun and then tested on a piece of cardboard until I got the texture that i wanted

Then I also fitted a Warn 12,000lb winch with Plasma rope
The finished item
