If you look at the manual which is in specifications on this site you will see the improvements the manufacturers have incorporated into these trucks in the technical information manual pages.They have already made a lot of the improvements you aim to achieve but as manufacturers they are limited by emission regulations and safety regs. They have done a reasonable job improving engine perforrmance and economy, suspension, steering and braking ability to mention just a few.
You have to drive one to appreciate the differnce cos its quite a sharp contrast.
Although I have not been restricted by warranty limitations for over 2 years and am free to do whatever I like to the vehicle I cant really see any point in altering the engine in any way, why would I want to drive a 2ton truck at over 120mph?
I will make a few changes to it would like to do a lift and better wheels and tyres at some stage but am in no hurry to do that for the time being.
I would like the opportunity to use a veg conversion but am hoping the hydro kit might be a possibility for the common rail engine as it seems a possible way to improve economy, it will be an interesting item to dabble with. Whatever I do I will keep the truck for a while yet and look towards replacing it with the next new model depending what they come up with and providing they change the engine block which is well past its sell-by date.
Looking forward to seeing the improvements you are making Yoda, its a huge achievement rebuilding the engine and fitting a veg system, I hope all goes well and the water injection is really interesting if it can be achieved, definitely will gain a cleaner engine as a bonus.

hmmm lt me think..... mine cost £4k plus vat, leaving lots of cash for mods that I wanted.....yours was? At `ness mine went in the zone and came bak oot, let me think, now, any new ones go in? I DON`T THINK SO! oh, and just in - mine didn`t try and drown itself would i have a new shape with a standard tub - of course i would - to tow my classic to and from the swamp land of death on a trailer lol



Unfortunately bas u cant pull that card because there was no new shape that was modded as much as yours...............................Now if i or Doug or the lads from the oz forum with their modded trucks were there i think it would be a diffrerent story

We all love each other really. But every now and then the new shape vs old shape convo comes to life. ;D

Bootsie, I don't want to drive at 120mph in my truck.I just want to get to 70/80 quickly I don't dislike the new shapes. They are bound to be a general improvement over the classic. But I do like the classic ruggedness and simplicity. Maybe because I'm simple! And although I go through different moods with it I can't decide if I like the look of the new shape. Sometimes I do sometimes I don't.

By the way, I prefer the term "racing slicks" to "bald road tyres"

Standard new shapes are better than slightly modded classics though



I'd debate that!




Whats to debate, faster, better mpg,more room inside, more reliable, better diagnosis, better offroad, permanent 4 wheel drive anywhere, difflock all 4 wheels or 2 wheels .




Have to agree....... The New Shapes are better in EVERY way

In my opinion the lift wiith those wheels makes the truck look as bad as the standard new shape with standard tyres. Just has that 'too big for its boots look'

$DEITY christ. You have to wonder what he's aiming at. Just name a goshdarn price!!!

The whole golden-shot, minimum reserve is laughable. At least it's clear he's not on this forum.

Maybe we should run a sweepstake? I'll go with selling at £9,999
