Re:


Yeah Drew, the towbar is not that hard at all. Just follow the fitting instructions posted ]HERE which show you exactly what you need to do and also give you an idea if you need to get additional parts for the towbar if it came incomplete.

All done!

I couldn't attach the trailer plug under the reverse light where the instructions said to put it, because the rear bash plate covers those up. So I could either put it all the way to one side of the bumper past the bash plate, or just have it in the boot.

I figured that trailer wires might not reach to either side of the bumper, so I just put the plug in the left hand compartment with the jack and wheel brace. It's all neat and tidy that way and easy to get out when I need it emoticon

Re: Drew's T31 X-Chariot


Got some new lights emoticon I've been saving for these since I got the towbar.

Holy hell the light bar is bright!!

Wiring them all up through high beam and individual switches was a bit of a pain. I couldn't find switches that matched the interior lighting exactly, but they're pretty nice. A tad bright though, so I'm thinking if I put a tiny bit of red film over them they might match the rest a bit better and be a bit dimmer.

Still having trouble aiming the driving lights down enough though. I may have to make another thread about it since I'm just about at my wit's end with them.

EDIT: Never mind, I attacked the driving light mounts with a dremel so they can point down more. My bullbar brackets seem to lean backwards at an angle and I couldn't see and feasible way to move them or the bullbar.

What wattage is your light bar? How big? How much? How many lumens?

Re: Drew's T31 X-Chariot


Mine is ]this model which is 120W, 10320LM, and the dimensions are (L)595x(H)94x(D)92mm including the height of the mounts. Kinda hard to see the mounts on mine since it's mounted upside down with the mounts turned backwards. It was $190, I got it on their ebay store.

With hindsight, I probably could've just gone with the light bar. You can hardly even tell the spots are on when the bar is on too. I mainly got the spots because everything I read says light bars just spread light around without projecting any distance, but I think because I got the bar with fewer bigger LEDs rather than the double row of weaker ones, it projects the light quite well. Far enough to light the road up effectively at highway speeds while also lighting up the margins where roos wait.

Re: Drew's T31 EXY


Ok, here we go. I took a series of shots all on identical exposure settings, and also combined them all into an animated gif at the end (changes every 2 seconds).
