    Where in Western Oz? All of my time there has been spent in and around Melbourne. Have yet to make it to that side of the country. It's on my list though.

    You'd love Gnaraloo - sweet surfing and windsurfing/kitesurfing spot. Also good fishing and snorkelling (if you miss the tiger sharks)

    Cheers for the welcome guys
    Will post some pics when I've get the truck out of town!
    Yes, it is RHD (imported as LHD then converted locally). As these are not sold here they're pretty pricey and hard to come by - mine was second hand (2 years old with 30,000km) and cost me just over $105K AUD - only things not stock was a UHF radio and a road armour bumper (but this is not yet fitted as I need to drill it out for the front park sensors still).
    I did own a 200 series Landcruiser (the twin turbo diesel) prior to this but needed more headroom and couldn't deal with it any longer (causing major back issues). I'm not super tall but have a seriously tall torso. I have about 5mm (1/4") headroom in the Tundra but it's enough!

    Is it true that if you try and swim across the swan river you have a 1 in 4 chance of survival? (Not sure where i remember hearing that).

    Hah! Haven't heard that one before - we have the occasional shark come into the river but it's a very safe place to swim in general. We do have quite a few dangerous animals here though - the photo of the nice beach I posted above has had a few great white attacks in the last decade - and that's not unusual for here.

    Actually, I recall where I heard it. An old classmate from VIC told me that. Sharks don't scare me half as much as the human sized spiders you grow down there. ;)

    Cool - yeah, there's not many sold here - the price now is closer to $140K for a new platinum, and a chevy/gmc would be around $170K.
