  1. Re: Lockers/Traction Control etc etc........Comparison??

    Bex, I think that is the biggest point of difference in any of these systems; how experienced are YOU as the driver with your own vehicle irrespective of what systems it uses. I was at a 4x4 meet...
  2. Re: Lockers/Traction Control etc etc........Comparison??

    Ek stem saam oor vinnig ry, maar vir die res van die 99% van die tyd, is dit bitter belangrik.
  3. Re: Lockers/Traction Control etc etc........Comparison??

    Johan, I assume the last comment is tongue in cheek. ABS is not even negotiable in today's world - it can save your life. And many modern cars have ABS that can compensate for dirt roads, that will...

    Re: Cruiser vs Hilux

    Ek stem saam, 5de is lank genoeg. 'n Swaar Cruiser met ###### bande is elk geval nie die kar om mee te jaag nie. Al kan jy dit bekostig. My 76 het op sy lekkerste gery so net kort van 120 op die GPS,...

    Re: Cruiser vs Hilux

    Jy gaan jaarliks moet diens met daai kilos, dienste is gewoonlik 10000kms OF 1 keer per jaar op die V8. Maar ja, een so diens per jaar is nie die einde van die wereld nie.

    Maar gaan ry hom, party...

    Ek stem saam, die standaard clutch is nie goed genoeg nie. Budget maar vir die Exedy. Check ook vir 'n ekstra in-lyn diesel filter om jou bietjie gerus te stel oor die injectors - dalk het hy reeds...

    Re: Cruiser vs Hilux

    Vir 'n 3de voertuig wen die Cruiser elke dag. As dit 'n kar was waarmee jy elke dag sou moes werk toe en terug ry, maak die Hilux - met 'n auto box en 'n diensplan - skielik meer sin.

    Re: Mana Pools - Dick Pitman's views

    I agree Mike. While it is heartbreaking to read all the stories of the animals suffering, helping these animals now, will potentially just make the situation even worse for the next drought.

    Re: Ultimate Ford Ranger Overlander

    In Australia, a change like this requires an engineering certificate and a GVM upgrade. Lengthening the chassis, and putting on a bin and canopy from a S/C bakkie, is going to add a LOT more than...

    Re: Ultimate Cruiser?

    I agree, I don't think it makes as much sense for a work bakkie. But, I think the big drawers under the trays do, at least to some extent, make up for the extra height.

    Just for interest's sake, I...

    Ja, I'm wondering if the extra toys and lower price, make up for the better chassis and engine in the Amarok. Almost all the Aussie reviews I've read say that the Amarok still rides better, and the...

    2019 Ranger Wildtrak

    But, has anyone here really compared the new Wildtrak with an Amarok V6? I don't just mean the engine, obviously the V6 will be quicker in all applications. The friend...

    Re: Land Cruisers too uneconomical?

    Thanks Petri, this is actually important.

    I got my 76 V8 with about 60000kms on the clock, and a lot of quality extras for just over R500k almost 18 months ago. It was the first second-hand car I...
  16. Re: LC105 4.5P: Independant Workshop in Pretoria area

    On the LCCSA the consensus seems to be that Hatting Motors in Centurion and Henry Motors in Lynnwood are the best. I recently serviced my 76 at Henry motors and was happy with the service.

    Re: Do you like the new Defender?

    I've said this before, my biggest concern with the 240 diesel model - which in the 110, should in theory be the pick of the litter, is that it's a 2.0l turbo-diesel pushing out almost 180kw. And it's...

    To add, 20 years ago, fuel wasn't really part of the budget for a holiday at the coast. These days, it's a huge part of that budget.

    Re: 76 or 78

    The swop makes NO sense unless you REALLY need the extra space. If the extra space is important, then maybe. But you will probably hate yourself later for giving up the V8.. ;D

    Thanks Koos, so the Defender should be a lot more fuel efficient than a G, all other things being equal of course. And I would suggest they're targeting a similar market.

    Change just for the sake of change is stupid and should rightly be resisted.

    In this case, you could argue that LR were forced into change by changing safety regulations. But most of the...
