    Tidy looking ute. Love the colour. I just sold my VY bns ute and got a VS 5L. Already have a bar and skirts, so it begins haha.

    What exhaust system is on it?

    $600 for a new cover? they are on eBay for less than $200, surly you could buy one of those and get it modified for you bars for a lot less. Normally don't like these kinds of utes but loving this one. Nice work mate.

    Thanks guys im not to shore about mud flaps yet but if i do i want to get black kenworth once or black cat once
    As for the cover i nearly died when they said that and that was the cheapest i said about the ebay once they said i could buy one of them but they would charge me 2 to 300 to modify it to suit my bar so im looking for someone with a industrial sewing machine and going to do it my self

    As for the exhaust my plan it to have a 2 an half inch twin all the way through with the pacemakers it al ready has 2 100 cell cats some good mufflers and 2 single 3inch crome tips out the back and i wont have a cross pipe
    Thanks for the fed back guys puts a smile on my face nowing people like my ute and makes all the work ive done worth it

    Why no x pipe? Resonators help these sounds tough without the thong slap too. The 304s are notorious for it on twins and only mufflers mine was set up like that in the beginning and sounded sooooo bad.

    The x pipe makes it a nice balanced sound but can understand what you mean with true duals. Had true duals on my pontiac before i went x pipe twin 3". A 12" hotdog and then some aero mufflers would sound pretty muscle.
