    Ok guys I think it is time for the WA Rok owners to get together for a day trip in the next couple of weeks. Let us know what's a good time and we'll met up.
    North, South or East, it doesn't matter.

    Hi Purt,
    Haven't organised anything of late, but if people are available on Sunday, we could organise a Amarok get together.
    Any ideas?

    G'day @Fuss

    I've Got a white Rok,
    With black Bullbar (OL)
    TJM rear Bar
    Black sports Bars
    Safari Snorkel
    + few other bits and pieces.

    And will soon have side bars, scrub bars, Ariels' spotlights, and then more stuff eventually :)
    Like Decent Rubber, black rims and some Lift!

    You'll see me floating around NOR, or up and down Yuna. Brother also has a Rok, but his is dark grey and doesn't have much bar work yet.

    Would be keen to get out 4wding, ktms on back and go for a much needed thrash somewhere but just seem to run out of time these days haha.

    Names Robert anyway :)

    Hey,
    Sorry only just saw this,
    bought scrub bars and side steps from a place in queensland. ( OAQ )
    they have a workhop over here, but when you ring them up you pretty much deal with over east.
    Rest of my stuff i have in my thread somewhere :)

    G'day fellow WA rok owners.
    I'm changing the topic here but is anybody getting a Crispmods tune while he is in town? I'm getting a stage 1 Eco. Really looking forward to feeling the difference.

    I'm getting a stage two
    Chasing Torque
    Undecided on whether to go an exhaust tho, have heard mixed things
    (ie from heaps of benefit, to a lot of people saying not really worth changing the exhaust)

    I guess it depends on who is doing it? I'm playing it safe but also have plenty of other fast vehicles so not after max power. One of the things I've requested is that 1st changes to 2nd sooner while floored which should be ok if there is more torque down low.
    I also want to feel a change on the highway with a trailer and overtaking while basically paying for itself with less fuel.

    Yeah Chris is doing mine too.
    In the sand/mud and when you pull into quick moving traffic is where the extra tq/usability of power will be most felt i think,
    but better acceleration, better driveability and still hopefully some fuel saving - should be beneficial.

    - Metallic Toffee Brown Colour/trim
    - Lights and Vision
    - Front and Rear Rubber Mats
    - OEM Towbar
    - Soft Tonneau Cover with Sports Bar
    - OEM Headlight Covers
    - OEM Bonnet Protector

    Hi [MENTION=4363]Col[/MENTION]. Would be good to cover have a look around down there. ...
    I have a 12 Highline manual. Pearl black with Durbans. I didn't option anything when I bought it as it was to expensive. You probably now have as standard what was an option back then.
    I have done the following though.
    Black sports bar
    3 piece hard lid
    Bilstein dampeners with 25 ish mm lift at the front from Lovells Springs.
    Rear facing led spots
    Hid driving lights
    MCC Nudge bar ( being replaced with Maniac Bar shortly)
    Dual batteries and air compressor.
    OEM Wind protectors.
    Headlight guards and a black bonnet protector.
    Tinted Green glass in the front with privacy glass in the rear Windows.
    Hayman Reese tow bar.
    Oh and I plasti dipped the rims to black.
    Slightly dirty at the moment due to a trip through the pilbara. So not much of the black showing. ..😊

    Hi [MENTION=661]funky0[/MENTION]

    Mate! Sounds like you have that really nicely kitted up!

    I initially wanted the Pearl Black but we already have a black Kia Sorrento, so the wife made it VERY CLEAR that black wasn't an option :rolleyes:

    We have two big events coming up in June - the birth of our 6th grandy (daughter) and the second re-union of the Red Parrot nightclub - so, if time permits might try an organise a WA ROK owners meet up.

    Sounds good. I wouldn't mind doing a weekend down that way. Will have to keep in touch and see who else is lurking down that way with a Rok.

    Hi
    Please give us the nod if your having a trip, although our 4WD knowledge you could write on the side of an aspro with a pick, always willing to have ago and looking for a reason to peg out the tent.
    We're in Mandurah with a no colour rock with floor mats.

    Ditto [MENTION=661]funky0[/MENTION] perhaps organise something on the other side of winter - quite a few things happening for me over the next couple of months.

    Other Side of winter sounds good. Gives me time to get some more war wounds on the Rok. ....😭
