THERE are a few tricks the experts can use in a build like this, but there’s no denying physics. If you keep adding things to a vehicle eventually the weight starts adding up. To mitigate this Craig runs a suspension system that keeps things legal and makes the Patrol perform better than ever. A GVM upgrade of an additional 500kg was achieved with a combination of Dobinsons suspension components. There’s four-inch-lifted coils in the factory mounts up front, with a matching (albeit heavy duty) pair in the strengthened rear mounts. All four are kept in check thanks to a full set of remote reservoir shock absorbers. Suspension geometry has been dialled in with heavy duty adjustable arms in the rear, a set of drop boxes in front correcting caster, and extended sway bar links. When loaded to the hilt for family trips, a set of helper airbags in the rear stop the dreaded bum-sag.
