    Hi everyone,

    my name is Jiri and originally I am from the Czech Republic, which is the small country in the middle of Europe. My Australian home is in Melbourne.
    I have been in Australia for 13 months so, please excuse my English which is not perfect...:)

    I have bought HJ 75, from 1988, Troopcarrier with 350k km on the gauge.

    Nowadays it is almost in stock condition just 15" rims with 31" Kumho Road Venture AT.
    My vision for the future is transforming this troopy into an overland vehicle for my girlfriend and myself for trips around Victoria and further into Australia.

    Thanks for accepting me into your community and have a good day.
    Jiri

    Hello Jiri, that sounds like a great truck, can we have pictures and tell us about what you are planning to do to upgrade it. Not many troop carriers in uk unfortunately.
    Would love a 40 series troopy.

    Hi Jiri, welcome aboard!

    Your English is just fine mate, so don’t worry yourself, but I’m looking out for some photos of the troopy...

    Sorry guys for a later reply...
    Shortly we live in Kilsyth so pretty close to Boronia. :)

    What I want to upgrade is snorkel, and then whole technical condition of this truck. It is in good condition for its age but some parts like bushes etc. are a bit worn... But everything has own time.:)

    Here are few pictures:

    Very nice.

    Get yourself over to Croydon and go to Kofi Beans for amazing coffee and hot chocolate.

    Croydon Camera House is a great place for photography stuff, and don't forget Piranha in Boronia for all of you 4x4 gear.

    Also there's Outback Automotive in Ferntree Gully that does suspension, tyres, etc.
