    With the heavy rain storm they had a week ago, expect the top section at the switch backs to be Rocky, but not a problem, unless you drive a low softroader

    Someone was playing games with that plate as the axle can't be less than the gvm legally. Also when manufacturing a trailer the coupler must have a rating equal or greater than the gvm

  25. Re: To Afrispoor or not to Afrispoor, that is the question.

    Only you can answer that. Caravans are not an asset that the bottom falls out of. So if you enjoy camping and it ticks the boxes why not. Just look on Gumtree and see how few you find 2nd hand.

    Re: Lifting a 2018 Ford Ranger "Low Rider"

    Ok 235 works well. Speedo very accurate. 255 you notice a loss of performance and speedo under reads which is not ideal. 100 on the clock is 108 true. 15000 service interval is 16350km true.

    Re: Lifting a 2018 Ford Ranger "Low Rider"

    Front is coil over shock. You can fit a 255/70x 16 tyres but they drain the power, and the speedo is way out. A better option is a 235/70x 16. This is if your base model is fitted with 215 tyres...
