Re: my new/old stacked light ute! advise?

yes the do all line up and can be swapped. only from similar models/years though. just go hire a car trailer but make sure it has a winch oh it incase the car doesnt start. any proper car trailer or tandem trailer will accomodate the ute.
good to see that your gonna buy it! your gonna love the roar and the power of the ute when shes runnin!
dont forget some pics when you get it back home!

Dimensions (sedan):
Length: 184.6 inches (4689mm)
Width: 73.6 inches (1869mm)
Height: 55.8 inches (1417mm)
Wheelbase: 111 inches (2819mm)
Front track: 58.9 inches (1496mm)
Rear track: 58.5 inches (1486mm)
Kerb weight: 3003lb (1362kg)
Turning circle: 36.6ft (11.2 m)
Fuel tank: 16.4 gallons (74.6 litres)
Boot space: 25.4 cubic feet (720 litres) Interior dimensions (sedan):
Front headroom: 38.7 inches (983mm)
Rear headroom: 37.6 inches (955mm)
Front shoulder room: 58 inches (1473mm)
Rear shoulder room: 58 inches (1473mm)
Front hip room: 59.5 inches (1511mm)
Rear hip room: 59.5 inches (1511mm)
Front legroom: 42.1 inches (1069mm)
Rear legroom: 37.8 inches (960mm)

its the sedan but the utes arent really any different in length or width. dont think the front end will matter either as most of the extra length on farilanes is the the rear.

Re: my new/old stacked light ute! advise?

cheers dav thats a great help and cheers to al who also emailed me .....yep gonna get the ute cant wait no doubt il b on here asking allsorts of things
2 things i would like to now know tho is what bolt pattern would it be and what else is same pattern?? as those wheels have got to go and what axle should it have?
another thing i would like to change some time is the c4 to a manual(if i can find 1) is this a good idea? i just like manuals and think they use less juice
if i get on with this truck (it starts on the button) i may well use lpg/lower it/replace missing trim/fit full length rear bumper/change steering wheel/change interior colour (its gold!) polly bush it?/respray it was thining either gloss black with satin black shelby stripes or other way round so theres another whole load of questions
all advise ideas help welcome
cheers brothers!
