The Tow Rig – Patrol

We have a 2013 GU Y61 Patrol Manual 3l TD, a tidy whitey. We bought it brand new with the view of decking it out as a tourer for our family of 5 and keeping it for ever. Milli is in her last year of car seats so this takes up a bit of space. We’ve taken the rear seats out to make way for our 50lt Waeco fridge and the 35lt Waeco as well as the recovery gear which includes a few snatch straps, trunk protector, shackles and a large air compressor. We usually shove all our clothes and food in between the boot and under the kid’s feet.

So far we have added an ARB snorkel and ARB full Alloy roof cage from Penrith ARB. As we add different mods I’ll add more pictures and updates.

We found this little company on a facebook page and its listed in the product review section, but I’ll add some pics here as well. It’s a drop down stainless steel bench. The Patrol has two barn type doors and now has stainless on both lower sections. It also came with a small LED strip light but I changed it to this one which is a bit more rugged. I will add a few more pics of this soon.
