    Re: 265/70/17 A/T Tyre advice

    Those tryes have got 2 ply sidewalls and according to the information on the tyre itself, neither of those 2 plies is Kevlar. Apart from that, the GY Wrangler is a rather tame A/T tyre and I don't...
  2. Re: 4x4 self drive hire - insurance does not seem to cover write-off

    Maybe. But I know to take such "reviews" with a large pinch of salt. After all you only hear one side of the story, if you tend to believe those who scream the loudest, then Asco is probably awful....

    Re: How damaging is corrugation?

    It all depends on your tyre's sidewall height and vehicle weight. But in general, if 2.2 bar is your normal tyre pressure, 1.7 - 1.5 should be ok. The main thing is temperature: deflate the tyres,...

    Sounds like an FJ Cruiser would be perfect for you. The very steep windscreen and small windows around keep the temperature in the cabin down like now other. It is the coolest vehicle temperature...

    Both would have roughly the same fuel consumption, the EFI would give you more power though.

    Put a snorkel and decent bumper on any of the new bakkies and they look the part. Stock standard the NP300 isn't going to win a beauty contest either.

    Was going to say that, but seeing that he's got a baby and plans on keeping the vehicle for long, the Prado might be the better choice. FJs aren't really that family friendly.

    FJ60 flex

    The other day I found a nice washed out ditch in the road along the water pipeline north of Swakopmund and let the old Cruiser flex a bit. 1983 FJ60 with OME suspension.

    Re: Lightweight drawer system

    You could use 4 tie down points, like these:
    540185

    Or cargo tracks https://4x4direct.co.za/603-cargo-tracks-and-fittings

    You can then secure the drawer system with 2 ratchet straps.

  33. Re: My new to me LC150 4.0V6 VX - so many questions!

    As for tyres: try Michelin LTX Force or the older A/T2, if you can still get them. Either one should give you very good mileage close to that of the BFG but with much better road manners and comfort.
