hey, my dad recently made a purchase of an XR8 ute [2weeks ago].
He also got some extras, the one im curious about is the body kit.
what exactly does this add, and more importantly how will it make our ute look [FIND A PICTURE PLEASE!!]
Ive been dieing ever since 2 weeks were added till we get it, and a picture would help tonnes.
ps why arent their any pics of this at ford.com.au ive looked quite a lot!!
cheers, and excuse my extreme lack of knowlege

Ok Chris beat me to it. But those front extentions are part of the body kit for the ute. In fact as far as I know that is the body kit.
The sports bar is an option by itself, but I am not sure about side skirts. I don't think these are available but I could be wrong>

Ok You have my interest now What is the ute body kit? For 1200 you would want to have more than I thought it was!

I know, when i was looking over the payment papers that my dad signed i was pretty stoked he was forking out for them, when i asked him he had about as much info as i had.
[p.s we're also getting the "tanno" hard [spelling] cover]

I thought the bodykit for the ute was basically the same as the sedan just redesigned to fit the ute.

The 'ute' bodykit is identical to the one fitted on the Pursuit editions earlier this year. Front extensions, side skirts, rear skirts.

I think the side skirts continue right to the back, so I presume they would continue around in some form.

I am basically going by the 4 pursuit utes I have seen.

I haven't seen any pursuit ute and am having a hard time picturing what the rear would look like? Anyone have a picture of this rear skirt?

We have an XR8 Ute with body Kit arriving within the next 2 weeks.

I can take some digital snaps of it and post it up here if you like.
It is Venom.,

HSE2, I know of 2 blue ones and 2 white ones and personally I think they look really good, the bodykit just adds a bit more of an aggressive stance to the look of the ute.
