    I am a fan but as said I think the price point is not right. You can buy 2 new 4x4 fortuners for 1 defender. Friend bought one now, 670k after discount.
    BUT having said that, if they sell, the price...

    Re: Trickle charge via cigarette lighter plug?

    Self edit.
    I understand now. You want to 'reverse' the power into the system like plugging a genny into a wall socket.

    Re: Cruiser vs Hilux

    The nice thing about buying a Namib is that the purchase price and thus 'boekie waarde' will reflect the extras. Thus when selling, the buyer cannot tell you extras are worth nothing.

    Re: Raptor or Amarok V6

    For me the Raptor looks the part and the suspension is the part but sadly the performance is just mediocre.

    Thus my choice would be Amarok with upgraded suspension.

    Re: Overlanding.. Do you really need a 4x4?

    Overlanding= 4x4. Road trip to Bots or Nam = 4x2 in my book. Needing it once on a trip is enough.

    The above is one of the reasons Toyotas give less issues- the engines are mapped very conservatively.

    I was scared of the out of warranty cost of owning a Disco4. Thus we sold ours. It was an awesome vehicle with no issues in the 3 years we had it.

    Why will it be safer to inlate them before you load the vehicle?
    Surely then the pressure will rise above the value you set as your maks.
