    I've taken the other side step off and SWMBO actually likes the look without the side steps. I'm off to the tyre shop this week after tearing a hole in the side of a D697 then off to the dealer for a service and fluid changes. The underneath looks okay...

    Any recommendations for post trip battery maintenance? I've got an old 5 amp battery charger from Kmart but I'm not sure if it's still any good.

    Charge your battery's & keep them charged. Check fluid levels. Keep clean & dry.

    Quick note to add to Anth comments about rear diff oil, Just be aware that the 150 series does not have a LSD in the rear axle. Check your hand book, for your particular model, but mine did not and as such does not warrant the LSD oil. Also the Kakadu has a locker standard. Cheers, mmm beer.

    OK so this one then :- http://www.bunnings.com.au/projecta-...arger_p4420008

    They also have a 4300ma one for another $10 or $12 :- http://www.bunnings.com.au/projecta-...arger_p4420249

    Is the lower mA one better because it produces more of a trickle charge?

    Good point, my Kaka has 2 (centre and rear). What's this beer you talk of? I was sure you drank car polish LOL.

    Your correct but the order is different, Polish first, then beer.
    Pearl loves it and looks the goods all cleaned up. It would be the first time this year I have washed her and it not rained the next day. The only reason I know mine has a open rear differential is I have it sitting in a box in the shed. Was replaced with a locker. I cant see any friction plates like a LSD.
    Cheers mmm polish.

    I tried to get a secret raiding party together to muddy Pearl up during the night after you had bathed her in the river, pikers all of them LOL!

    Did your Altitude have the factory rear diff lock?

    Great thread.

    For the few 95 series owners - I'm pretty sure the rear prop shaft has 4 grease nipples not 3.

    I've just changed my engine oil/filter, steering fluid and checked over the suspension and diffs. Can't seem to find much else to do at this time.
