2014 Starlight Blue Highline Auto - parts or major repair
With some sadness my 2014 Highline blew a rod through the block last weekend. There may be some damage to the transmission bell housing. I am glad it was 10m from my mechanics by chance, not at 110kph overtaking a truck with my family on board towing my camper.
I am done with it and want to offer it to genuine interested parties as a complete paper weight, I can't justify the cost in repairing and won't replace it with another Amarok to reuse the accessories - please don't waste my time in your offers. I've had it since new - May 2014.
I'm located in Brisbane and it will need to be towed to you at your cost.

There are some pinstripes from using it for what its supposed to be used for. I will fully disclose that I used it on easy to moderate bush tracks, never worked it hard, went to the Cape last year (hence the mods) and stayed on the PDR, have never had it through a deeper than my knee water crossing. It went to the beach on Moreton for 3 days 18 months ago, otherwise it hasn't seen anymore sand. I want to fully disclose its had a relatively easy off road life because I'm conservative and have a wife and 3 little kids. There is the f'ing annoying ding in the tailgate from my mate "helping" to change a tyre and not taking out the lowering handle before dropping the tailgate.

I can take some photos at some point if that helps.
