    Re: Toyota dash switches

    To be pedantic, the GU Patrol sub-tank switch is a momentary switch. It only connects when pushed, and disconnects when released. The sub-tank controller does the rest.

    That said, however, I doubt...

    Re: Camping coffee: share your preferred way

    Does one get anything weaker than Americano ? I would not even call Americano coffee.

    Americano 'coffee' is urine - like American 'beer'. Except it is served warm.

    Moar Southern Namibia (Again)

    Many years ago, I bought my first Patrol. Shortly after this, my father instructed me to find him one, as he had totally fallen in love with my vehicle. At that point, Petri Oosthuizen was selling...

    Oom Christo, I also considered it. However, that is very low kilos, and the vehicle has rarely been used offroad. So I discounted it - unless it was driven on tar in 4x4 for a long distance or abused...

    Right - just a few notes then.

    1: Free-Wheel Hubs

    The free-wheel hubs are automatic generally, and can lock specifically. This you know. If ever doing severe off-road stuff, lock them. The lock...

    Re: Cluck sound when pulling in 4x4

    A strange cluck is normally indicative of the auto freewheel hubs locking and unlocking. However if you locked your hubs, this would go away.

    You mention that you don't regularly use the vehicle...

    In my honest opinion, it is worth it. An example:

    Re: Terrain Tamer Parts worth the price?

    I'm a big fan of Terrain Tamer parts. But I have never considered them being double the price of what I would have paid at the dealers. I've always felt that they have generally been very well-priced.

    Andrew - I responded based on this. I presume W3771M will be coming from Pretoria based on his location. In this case, the easiest road is going to be via Bela Bela.

    There are a gazillion stop-goes on the R511 North between Brits and Thabas. The easiest route will be via Bela-Bela.

    Personal opinion - that is what I would do.
