    Re: Introducing My Rhino1.0

    How are those tyres extending beyond the fenders not going to muck up the body panels on gravel roads?
    Or do you intend on using it in town mostly?

    Re: Prado120KZ / 4L / FJ

    You already got a Prado when you need the boot space.
    The FJ doesn't share the same chassis. The wheelbase and overall length of the FJ is shorter than the Prado.
    As for fuel consumption, if you...

    Re: Totai Stove any good?

    There is a world of difference between a Defy gas stove and an AEG or Smeg one, even though the prices are not that much different. I can't imagine Totai to be any better than Defy.

    Re: Changing to 17 Inch tyres on a V6?

    Did you import those tyres yourself?
    The GY Wrangler Adventure tyres you get in southern Africa don't have Kevlar in the sidewall, they only got a Kevlar layer in the tread.

    Re: Testing a Diesel Engine's Health.........??

    Usually one would use eyes to look at the dipstick. If you wait until the engine sounds wrong because of lack of oil, damage is already done.

    Keep in mind that car loans came with an optional insurance against loss of income. The insurance would cover the outstanding loan in case the insured lost their job and it's not their fault.

    Re: Off road tyre pressure

    I found with the XT140 it bounces on tar a lot more with low pressure, when it is light. I usually pump it to 2.0 for tar. The trailer weighs 600 kg empty.

    Re: What tyres do you suggest

    The GY Wrangler Adventurerer AT you get in SA doesn't have Kevlar in the sidewall, just the running surface. Read the fine print on the tyre, what plies the sidewall is made off.

    If you want to argue with the fact that Toyota spares are significantly more widely available than Jeep parts north of the boerewors equator, then it's time for you to travel a bit further north.
