FozzyMike very nice Foz! Let me know if you want a lift kit for it. I don't make sumpguards yet but the SubaXtreme one is fine for sand

I've considered strut spacers to give it that little bit more clearance but so far it has been exceptional in everything I ask of it. I have only gotten stuck through my own error at this stage. As for a sump guard, I keep the splash guard on for the daily drive. It has been slightly modified due to damaged caused the first and second experiences on sand. For the more heavy stuff, I scored a piece of stainless steel from work. Due to it being a screen, it wouldn't be the best aerodynamics, so I just wack it on when it suites.

Hi Mike,

Just watch that you don't damage your DPF while offroad - I have damaged my DPF on a pretty rutted out sand track with only the standard splash guard for protection - let me just say - the DPF is not a cheap part to replace!!!

I've driven through Kinkuna which can get very chopped up and rutted since it seems to be the go to playground for 4wd around here being 15mins out of Bundaberg. I've given it (the splash guard) a few good knocks there. I gave it a couple going into Burrum Point aswell. Apart from having to add a 1.6mm piece of steel to rienforce and cover up the hole (that turns into a bit of a sand plough and threatens to rip the whole thing off) and a little bit of plastic welding, it's so far done a pretty good job at protecting the DPF.

However, I do have a stainless steel guard that I can put on if I expect that things might get a bit rough. I've only tested it in Deepwater NP so far. Unfortunately, I didn't give it a real good beating since I was following my brother in his territory, who did a pretty good job at leveling the track and giving me around 40mm clearance. So at times I had to get a little creative and leave his tracks.
Because of it's design, I'd be interested to see how well it clears sand away from the rest of the underbody. If it's the only part that touches the ground, I'd be pretty happy.

File comment: I realise that it probably doesn't have the same sliding effect across sand as a solid piece, but it probably only cost me around $50. Made from 2mm stainless steel, sheet aluminium side splash guards and DPF splash deflector, aluminium mounting brackets

I'm liking the look of that sump guard, it looks like it would shed a fair amount of sand - it will be interesting to know how it goes with it once you have had a chance to test it.

Burrum Point.


Is that the back road to Gregory point? I grew up in Woodgate as a kid and nothing beat the driving on the sand and helping the grand parents do the netting on the main beach south to burrum point.

Might have to take the soob up for a road trip before Xmas I think..fishing lines packed and camp for a few nights.
