    Re: Whats the best buy? Duster, CRV or Forester

    That is a very valid argument. I think people often miss that.
    I would not buy a Duster but for other reasons, not because it compares poorly to a Forester or CR-V.

    I drive a Tata Xenon 3.0...

    Re: Is this enough grease????

    It is hard to tell from the photo how much grease that is but if you say 100ml I cannot imagine that it would not be enough. A tub of grease is 500g which would roughly be around 500ml. Surely you...

    All of this is true but the need for having a diff lock on a 4x2 and a 4x4 is very different.

    Says you bud.

    How often do you take your Wrangler off road? Not dirt roads but proper off road that requires SFA?

    The vinyl on those are often permanently stained. Have it replaced - you might be surprised at how affordable it is.

    Where did you get those figures bud? Prices you are comparing is for a Golf R and the A 45 AMG. The latter being hardly comparable to a Nissan Almera.

    Re: Would you do this to a brand new JLU

    Yes they do. The aftermarket sliders would be more for keeping the rocks away from the body. The stock sliders are flush with the body.
