Damn - $190?! SDO could probably have them milled. I have to say they are very neat!

If anyone is thinking of putting a turbo on a 4bd1, my old cross over tube, turbo and the first segment of the exhaust are up for grabs. See pics. The turbo needs a new cartridge.

So if the 6x6 is wider, is there enough room to make one LHD? It may be a stupid question, because I don't actually know what interferes normally.

It's probably cheaper from eBay.

I'm generally not a big fan of military vehicles, but after spending time around John's, I definitely think a Perentie is the best value of any entry level Defender. There are just so many cool little things on them. Its as if someone actually spent a few minutes thinking about how things should be before they started building them.

I'd love to see someone toss the military bumpers and paint the truck white. With a hard top, that truck would be hard to beat.

There is a ton of room to convert the 6x6 to left hand drive. The 4x4 with the KLR turbo would take to trickery with exhaust routing but looks infinitely possible. The 6x6 custom dash would require fabrication work if switched to LHD but infinitely doable since its appears to be fiberglass.

Just the fuel cap from KLR is 80 AUS$, they dont have any filler neck. I wonder what threaded filler neck could work with the cap.

Do you know how many times a day I've been telling myself that.

Jeff Aronson the editor of RN Rovers Magazine drove the turbo'd gs Perentie last weekend @ URE and loved it. He also checked out John's scout truck. Look for some Perentie love in the next RN magazine.

It's my understanding that only the Regional Force Surveillance Vehicles (RFSV) and Surveillance Reconnaissance Vehicles (SRV & SRV-SF) (maybe Long Range Patrol Vehicles (LRPV)) had these front diffs, they are a 4 pin front diffs with the reinforced housing. Whatever Perentie you have pictured there, looks VERY clean.

Australians, y'all are like Texans, everything is bigger and better.

Hey looked like I missed a call from you today. Shoot me a text with your address and I'll send those mud flaps. Did you want me to ship that truck from Brisbane ?

Matt is pimping one for himself. 5 door Perentie Commander version. Says he's putting all of Land Rovers best from around the world into it. Puma dash, a/c, puma leather seats, r380 with 1.1 tcase due to the extreme torque of the turbo 3.9, but with crawler gears as well. Puma steel doors,and bonnet, a fortune spent on sound proofing, and 2b forward control wheels ( no idea where he found those).
