Oils and oils Sol, and it turns out aluminium isn't aluminium either, and this is why it pays to have a team of engineers on your side.
We've got the awesome team at Milford Industries on our side, thankfully, and that literally guarantees that our bash plates, or Under Vehicle Protection (UVP) kits for the Isuzu D-MAX, MU-X and their twin-beneath-the-skin Mazda BT-50, are the best on the market.
The welded on rear mounts for the front bash plate in both the Triton and Pajero Sport, are well known failure points when upgrading the stock vehicle's under body protection.
Light weight and welded on by the work experience robot, breaking them is as easy as fitting upgraded, thicker and thus stiffer plates, and then waiting a while. If they survive that, hits out on the tracks will likely bring them unstuck at some stage in the future.
Strong, light and devastatingly handsome. No, it's not that blue-eyed skinny gym rat that lives around the corner, it's our new UVP (Under Vehicle Protection) for the current gen D-MAX, MU-X and BT-50. Designed in partnership with Milford and soon to be manufactured by Milford, to their exacting standards mind you, this UVP solution is going to be the one to have slung under your ride.
In more recent news, we've been working closely with Pacemaker in Adelaide to develop a shorter 'diff dump' tailpipe option for the MQ & MR Triton, and you can now choose between the full-length system that exits alongside the spare tyre like the stock system, or a new diff-dump option, where the rear section of the exhaust is replaced with a shorter pipe that finishes just over the back of the rear axle.
Do you remember the Buffalo Bill dance scene from Silence Of The Lambs? If you don’t, then go and have a quick Google of Youtube vids and meet me back here in five.
There are many lessons you can learn from this iconic sliver of cinematic brilliance, like don’t go door knocking for a cup of sugar, buy a bigger dog and that weird dude down the road in the funky smelling house, is best left alone. The most important lesson of all though, is for anyone looking to head off-road in their fourby, and it's simple as this.
Prior to owning my 2020 Mitsubishi Triton GLXR, I knew nothing about 4x4’s let alone 4x4 modifications. The purpose of getting the Triton was to take my family on camping trips to destinations we couldn't get to previously and away from the crowds.
