  1. that's not heaps of km's i would expect you'd get another year out of them, keep an eye on tyre wear and if it gets any worse in clunks.
  2. how many km do you do per year? are the tyres wearing unevenly? if tyres aren't wearing and not many kms driven you could go 10yrs .. if tyres are wearing now and you do 50,000kms a year they probably need doing yesterday. how did you find out?

    yeah rusty XH ..i guess the value might have been in the refrigerator stuff originally?

    looks good, got some light truck trailer tyres also.. that van looks good for the money too.. stick another diff in it and sell it again for $1000 after a wash

    i'm pretty sure only one pipe or 2 needed mods on those factory pipes into X series.. actually that was into XP that i'm thinking of.. might not be an issue on XF .. soon find out, exhaust mob with some fabrication skills could do it easy...(aka probably not midas etc)

    COOL! amazed at the tyre width pass if you could keep us informed of the process it would help others out no doubt.

    this guy covered the differences in extractors/heads (into sigma.. which may be interesting for fitment to XA-XG also?) also ways to fix some of the issues with off the shelf pipes

    i'd definitely get a heat sleeve (fitted a bit on My clutch cable and the accel cable of My crossflow) and i made a shield to clamp onto the extractors also for same reason (heat to starter motor also)

    woo! so what did you get? assume a CRS bell housing for windsor to T5, is it cable or hydraulic? i heard the BA manual clutch master cyl/pedal looked possible to retrofit to other cars..(i haven't seen one)

    if it's not a rust bucket, stick the 5 litre in it, and make an XH Sundowner . be MINT then buy another "parts car" so you can have another 5 projects.. ask @SPArKy_Dave if you aren't familiar.

    yeah My XF ute had 235s or 245s on the back, and when it rained wet roundabouts were the only time it would spin the wheels(ended up backwards only once, out of probably 1000 times.. think some diesel was on the road that day.. up the road from a servo) standard XF ute exhaust would be 2" probably .. most of the NC exhaust would fit if it's any good still

    what size exhaust is on the ute now, it's probably up to a stock 5 litre if it's 2 and 1/4 or 2.5" or bigger. singles sound good on V8s in My opinion. LSD in a ute with tyres as wide as you have is probably not needed, but in the wet it would get better traction for take off/drifting a roundabout etc. i'd consider just making the NC diff fit, then you can see if the worn LSD is good enough(probably is) and if you like the ratio. keep an eye out for a 3.45 LSD in the meantime. what kills open center(or weak LSDs) is single wheel burnouts (or getting bogged spinning one wheel) as it heats up the pins the spider gears run on and makes them snap when you least want it to.
