    Re: Prado 120 vs fj boot

    You pay a lot less for a much younger, lower mileage FJ than for a Prado 150, 2nd hand.

    Re: 2x4 SUVís - whatís their purpose?

    Re: 2x4 SUVís - whatís their purpose?

    Re: Prado 120 vs fj boot

    Sorry, not quite clear what you mean by "literate"?

    The FJ is shorter than the Prado, so is the boot space. Getting a half way decently sized fridge lengthwise into the boot of a FJ is a problem...

    Re: Cruiser EFI 105.......Advise Please

  18. Re: Tires on your trailer / caravan - Best before date?

    Those tyres are 9 years old by now and the rubber compound might have hardened quite a bit, which could make the tyre more brittle and more likely to burst.
    When a tyre is in use regularly, the...

    The airflow comes from the fan, hence no indication of the condition of the aircon compressor. If the compressor itself still works but runs with more resistance than usual, it could rob the engine...
