Welcome to the forum, thats a nicely modified 150, it should make a fun family tourer. Plenty of trails to choose from in Oz. Will you be fitting a long range fuel tank?

Thanks guys. Thanks for the welcome.All the microchips haven't been too bad . I have lost the KDSS due to aftermarket suspension but it's worth it for the handling and clearance .

It comes factory with a 150 litre tank which gives me between 1200 and 1400 ks per tank depending in conditions, which I think is awesome economy for a 2 and a half ton vehicle . I may fit a water tank behind the rear of the fuel tank yet.

That does look good with the raise and bumper.

Why did you lose the KDSS? I thought that works on the anti-roll bar? Changing the shocks should not have affected that? I was impressed at how the KDSS reduced the roll in corners.

Welcome BTW :)

Hi Crispin thanks
I lost the Sports /comfort function the original struts have a connection to the KDSS as far as i know. There are electrical connections on the factory struts that must change the way they react, I think they work together with the KDSS to change the ride handling. At a guess the sway bar system might still operate but nowhere near as effectively , as an example I dont feel like throwing up when driving on the highway due to how boat like ride was while in comfort mode. :confused:

Only the Kakadu and vx models came with KDSS here Shayne. My own fault for buying that variant. I had to have the interior and sunroof though no matter what. My mates give me crap for having the grandpa spec but they drive dirty old Nissans so their opinions are null anyway
