I'm new here. My P38 from Wyoming USA
There are some nice looking P38's on here. Thought I'd show you mine.
2001 HSE 4.6L, 114K Miles
Its riding on Old Man Emu Springs about 3 inches of lift with a front custom lower spring mount welded to the axle. I'm using Bilstien 5150 shocks as well.
I also have a 9500 lbs winch built into the stock front bumper.

G'day, thats a tidy p38 you have there! Do you take it out bush often? How do you find the coils compared to air springs?

Welcome to AUS!
Nice to see someone from the USA on board here at AULRO!
I really like that "discreet" winch mount behind the standard bumper, how did you do that?

Welcome! ...and you're in the right place for wide open spaces !! Likewise would welcome some detailed info / pics on your winch setup...very neat and tidy indeed! Are the wheel rims steel or alloy? Their 'offset' seems a tad different from the usual as well!

Thanks. Check out my build threads. I've always wanted a RR. I looked for a classic and ended up with a P38. I love it.
Mine came with the British Atlantic coil conversion on it. Ive worked on and driven them with air suspension. I personally don't like it.
I use mine off road a lot. We use it for camping and four wheeling. I'll post pictures later.

Still need to get a roof rack for the spare tire. 4.10 gears, ARB locker for the rear axle, better speakers inside, CB Radio.
Most of the money i put into the truck went to wheels tires and suspension. I bought it with 95000 miles. I'm up to almost 115000 miles in 1.5 years of ownership. I've redone the whole cooling system. New radiator, new water pump, new heater core o-rings, new intake heater assembly. I've replaced all the fluids and run Mobil 1 10w40 full synthetic in the engine. I get 15 mpg on the highway, 9 bombing through town.
