    Hey All,

    new to the fortuner 2 months new to me. It my first nearly new fourby. I got a 2015 crusade with 27,000kms. My previous trucks were a 1996 petrol prado (389,000 km) and a 2000 105 petrol landcruiser (314,000). Both great rigs but I needed a beer rig for new family and work.

    First diesel but I'm loving it - windows down listening to the turbo whistle.

    Don't have any major crazy mods - my last two rigs didn't fit in the garage. Just want a capable rig for around town and weekend adventuring both beach and bush.

    So so far I've done:
    led interior lights
    removed the 3rd row seats.
    Roof racks

    Planned mods:
    water tank
    rear cargo solution. - not doing drawers more shelves.
    Either new rims or plastidip current rims black
    all terrain tyres - thinking hankook due to affordability.
    Maybe new grill or plastidip
    hard mount air compressor
    new led fog lights
    upgraded stereo Inc compact subwoofer.
    recovery points. - I would love if anyone could point me in the right direction to recovery points that don't need a bull bar.

    Aiming to have most most of it done by October for a Moreton trip. Just had a new born hence my tardiness in getting stuck into it.

    Lovjng the car and looking forward to contributing to the fortuner forum community

    Welcome Doddsey

    it is my understanding ARB recovery points do not need a bull bar... BUT the only Bullbar they fit with is the ARB bull bar.

    If you fit a bar later you only have one choice being ARB.

    a few other manufacturers are likely the same (

      Cheers 4tuner. I'm going to call around this week and get a set. I asked another member and they had ironman points with no bullbars.

        ok but just be aware there was another post on here i read a while back that said Ironman points would ONLY fit with the Ironman bull bar also installed. Have a search around the forum you will find the comments.
