Ooh i love to do the Coorong with the GV.
OH i know Troy at TypePower. He's my goto guy for tyres. I'll give him a yell about the bash plates and other stuff.
Thanks for info.

Is it any good? I will have the oem nudge bar soon - would there be problems?
Not sure about the ironman bash kit, was not around when i did mine. Looks okay but I know ODA has slightly different kits for 2.4l, diesel and 3.2l so make sure from Ironman it's okay for the 3.2l V6. Troy is an Ironman distributor too.
My only concern about the nudge bar is that as it goes under the standard bumper bar to bolt on, you will actually lose more front on clearance in approach angle. I think it has some front bash plate built in but do not rely on me for that info as I have never had one or looked closely at one.
I went the 2" lift from ODA and have had no issues with it so far (apart from a stuffed front shock which Tim replaced and Troy refitted under warranty). I did shocks x 2, coil springs x 4, and struts x 2 in my lift, no spacers) I think Ironman do a 1 1/2" kit. I like my lift and my GV follows lifted patrols, cruisers, prados with no problems, especially with the front approach angle also improved by the ARB bar.
2013 mid year plan is Cape York and i have no worries that the car will make it.
