Longreach utes

What extras did the XH longreach utes have over the Gli's? From what I can see it is only a larger fuel tank.

Thanks,
Brett

Re: Longreach utes

Mine is a Longreach and the fuel tank is the standard 68L.
I'm buggered if I know what differences the Longreach has, mine has a tacho, but I dunno if the GLi has that or not.

Hi Barefoot XR6,

All XG,XH and XH II utes are called Longreach. When the XG was launched this was the name given to the utes and pano's. XG/XH were available in GLi and S pak trims, with XG having XR6 and the XH XR6 and 8 models as well.

The XG and XH also had a model called the OUTBACK which had the big tyres, diff and crash plates underneath. Iam also pretty sure they had long range petrol tanks, which was just another tank bolted up beside the standard tank.

Re: Longreach utes

greetings all

i belive that you have it in one, as for the dual tanks they work off the one gauge but i think there was a switch on the dash to swap from one to the other but the second tank was gravity filled for the main
