It's different when you don't feel it come out of your own pocket ;)
Oh it all comes out of the same pocket :D

I do stand by the fact I don't think 100's and 200's belong in places where lockers are generally needed :D Obviously there are many many caveats to such a bold statement but I've rarely found myself wishing I had a locker in the 100, like 2 or 3 times. It was those few times that led me to put a locker in the rear of the 200.

Catching up on this thread :D

Not my 200 (which makes it funner to push hard right?) but @sleeoffroad, Ben from Slee and I joined ARB and a handful of their tech/sales staff for a new product training and demo day. Ironically I think Christo and I have the first two BP-51's setups in the US (I installed mine in Oct 2015). It was good to see a closer look at some of the new internal mods, discuss rebuilds and tuning, etc. Plus doing this over and over is always fun.

Suspension update. Still love it!

My BP-51 is one of the oldest installs to date, over 3 years old now, lots of flogging and still comfortable and compliant. I did add some trim spacers front and rear and a larger set of General X3's right before departing for the B1K. My loads have changed, I wanted taller tires and it was time to recharge the Nitrogen in the shocks. I topped off everything to 300psi, made some small rebound/compression tweaks and we hit the road south.

I've still got a great deal of things to install but it's totally workable at currently I want to finalize my electrical as I'd like a few more outlets at the rear drawers and the dual batteries are still lingering on completion. I've also got plans to do a Long Range tank shortly. Time... anyone have some spare time?
