First wheel for 2011 in Australia

Went for a wheel for the first time in 2011 at a fav spot just after some rain. Was good to have a play again. First set of pics is front that play and the second is from the same area i was checking out a couple of days before the massive floods we have experienced in Brisbane and surrounding areas.







This is after a couple of days rain.....






An my son trying to dig me out bless him....

Is the rear track bar reversed on Australian models (i.e. the track bar mounts to the axle on what would be our passenger side)?

Yes that will happen today after posting similar pics on another forum and having them deleted due to the Poly stickers, the ones near the front doors will be gone

Yeah front and rears are reversed for the export models, plays havoc with stabiliser brackets, trackbars etc when we order kit fron the states as we have to junk it as it does not fit. Some vendors are providing RH compliant kit for the export market which is awsome.

haha.. I was gonna say, I can't imagine pics lasting long on the other site with their stickers and Poly's on the same rig.

Nice JK by the way. Looks like a fun time wheeling down there.
