With this uncertainty, I started looking at the 200 series ute conversions. It had the power, the room, the reliability and with a few less panels it would be a ute. After trolling through everything I could find on the net and the usual socials, and reading some great feedback, I finally made the call to ASG4x4. Based out of Toowoomba in Queensland, ASG4x4 have done hundreds of these conversions. But would it be an issue building the rig in one state and registering in another? How long would it actually take? Am I truly insane for cutting a brand new Landcruiser in half? The boys from ASG4x4 answered all my questions and more. We spoke multiple times on the phone, before I actually took a trip up to check out the production line for myself. To be completely honest, if I hadn’t of taken the time to go up and talk with the guys, I reckon I would still be trying to sort things out. They put not only my mind at ease but took the time to explain the process behind federal compliance and the steps involved with interstate registration. The guys actually offer complete solutions, where they source the vehicle and all, and if I had my time again, I would most likely go that way, just to save on the transport hassle. (What I saved in initial purchase price, I definitely spent in time and travel).

Great work with the chop. What extension did you run with?
Did you end up installing a flat bed and then a canopy as two independent parts?
Did you install water tanks underneath the tray?
We went with a 650mm chassis extension.
The Spinifex canopy is a direct chassis mount. Went this way to reduce weight, and I knew we’d never end up taking the canopy off the anyway once it had the fridge etc installed. It has an 80L tank underneath, and I mounted the pump etc in the hatch at the back (under the spares).
