All that clearance under Alice in the pic on top of the dune... 50mm Australian lift Kit!
I've done about 10 000km on dirt roads, 1 000 km in Namib desert dunes and all in 66000km since fitting the kit.

When the CV boots cracked up and I replaced them (11 years old) and checked the CV's and they are still great.

The lift spacers were tapered and indexed for fitting to allow the geometry to work. Eccentric control arm bolts had enough to keep alignment in order and I've had no tyre wear issues.  The standard sway bar connectors are too short so I replaces them with two form Isuzu KB 250 and two off the 2l Chev Lumina.

With the HT 215/65 R16 tyres I have 300mm clearance all the way through. More than enough for anything short of rock crawling.
