    Re: 404 mog

    Paul is right - parts for 406 / 416 drivetrains are much easier to come by than 404 axles - and much tougher.
    That being said, if you happen to have some 404 axles - I'm pretty sure they will stand...

    Re: Where to play with a U4000

    Well, there is no shortage of great trails within a couple of hours' drive from Pretoria / Johannesburg.
    A U4000 / U5000 has always, in my opinion, been far too large as a recreational toy.
    The...
  4. Re: How come Paul's Unimog hasn't been snapped up yet?

    It's definitely not for "everyone" no - only for a select few crazies.
    BTW, both Paul (selling this Unimog), and myself, live in complexes in Johannesburg Northern suburbs.
    Where there is a will,...
  5. Re: How come Paul's Unimog hasn't been snapped up yet?

    That article is from 14 years ago!

    I can vouch for the fact that there are absolutely no problems with a LHD vehicle changing hands, provided it's already registered.
    Unimogs are changing hands...
  6. How come Paul's Unimog hasn't been snapped up yet?

    Paul is one of the most fastidious owners that I know, and his Unimog is a true original rarity - with a camper actually made in Germany.

    Re: Any update on the new Defender

    Oh man, this is all just so wrong on so many levels.
    What the world will get, is another crap electronic, plastic, "modular", same-platform-and-engines-as-rest-of-range window dresser.
    It'll be...
  8. Re: Video: Unimog experience, Buffelspruit dry riverbed

    Damage not too extensive at all.
    My own cuts are also nicely healed up :cool:

    I'm taking a bit of time to improve a couple of things, so the Mog will be in pieces for a couple of months probably....
  9. Re: Video: Unimog experience, Buffelspruit dry riverbed

    Yes, I believe I'll be able to source everything. Although it's only the window(s) really that broke, the rest looks repairable.

    Thanks!
    It compares very favourably to Carnage Canyon.
    It has areas with even larger rocks etc, but also more choice in whether you want to drive over them or not.

  11. Re: Video: Unimog experience, Buffelspruit dry riverbed

    Ek stem heeltemal saam met jou. Almal maak foute, mens leer en gaan aan.
    Ek het lekker trail gery verder (so tussen die sukkel met my fuel line deur...) en daarna 120km huistoe gery.

  14. Re: Unimog passenger wanted (Tomorrow) - epic river day trip

    Video angles are quite deceiving. A Unimog has remarkably good side-angle capability.
    Strangely, I've had her atworse side-angles before with no problems.

    It's the particular set of conditions in...
  15. Unimog passenger wanted (Tomorrow) - epic river day trip

    Hi Guys,

    This is super short notice!

    My regular right-hand gal - both in life, and in the Unimog (It's left-hand drive :P ) - is feeling under the weather.
    Doing an epic day trip tomorrow...
  16. Re: Video: Unimog experience, Buffelspruit dry riverbed

    Hi Wooky!

    Well, for starters, we're doing this riverbed trip this Saturday (2 Jun 2018) again. I believe there is a spot or two open, but this is not for the weak-hearted.

    The latest Land Rover Owners magazine disagrees with you... I skimmed it in Exclusive Books yesterday, and they rate the D3 better off-road in all measures.

    I'm usually too busy driving to capture some good video footage, but on this trip my brother managed to capture the essence of the experience:

    Re: Carnage Canyon 16-18 June 2017

    Awesome! If it's before 1 June, or after mid-September, I can come with.
    Otherwise, sadly, I will be out of the country for work.

    Re: What are the minimums for Baboons?

    Ek weet dis glad nie waaroor die gesprek gaan nie, maar ek wou net sÍ dat my Unimog 416 Doka weeg 3.5ton (met sy body op :-) )
    Dis net die nuwer (vierkantige cab) Unimog lorries wat 7ton+ weeg.

    Re: My Land Cruiser 76 Impressions

    Are you seriously committing to buy a vehicle that you have never driven?!
    I mean, sure, just about anything is a more comfortable drive than a Defender 130, but that's... a little... brave, don't...

    Ja well, Sakkie.... The Isuzu in question has an epic driver and epic modifications.

    But, of course, we are all all still here, so we should just arrange another one again! But this was definitely quite the combination of vehicles.

    Eish, what a silly typo I made, implying that "we" quickly sorted the problem at camp.
