  1. Ford & Mazda Re: Ford Ranger T6 - how do I manually move the transfer case to 2H

    Does not seem like the problem is with the gearbox, likely with the transfer case shifter motor. Let me know if you need one. I have the 3.2 transfer case shifter motor available as they sold me the...

    I went through the same exercise recently after I had some mechanical issues with a popular brand diesel D/C bakkie in Botswana. I wanted something that had more dealerships and spared availability...
  4. Re: Botswana - Kubu Island and Nxai Pan approach roads.

    The A3 between Motopi and the Nxai Pans gate is heavily potholed (or it was in April). When we got to the Nxai Pan gate we turned left after about 100 or 200 m and took the cutline road to Nxai South...

    Toyota FJ Cruiser Roof Rack question

    I have removed my Front Runner roof rack today as I will not use it for a while and the wind noise at highway speeds was perceptible. I see that the Frontrunner installers added a bit of silicone...
  8. Re: FJ Cruiser Buying Advise - what is considered high mileage?

    Thanks guys. I am impressed with the ride. Engine barely seems to tick over at normal cruising speeds and I sometimes found myself at 150 km/h effortlessly when overtaking. Fuel consumption for trip...

  12. Wrangler 4dr Re: Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 3.6 V6 - buying used for overlanding

    Not super concern about consumption, else I would not be looking at a V6 petrol 4x4. My wife is just an extremely analytical person (and myself to an extent as well). She has the habit of...
  13. Wrangler 4dr Re: Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 3.6 V6 - buying used for overlanding

    That is impressive! Not bad going from my bakkie then. I seem to get 9-10 km/l and it does not matter what I do.
  14. Wrangler 4dr Re: Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 3.6 V6 - buying used for overlanding

    Hi Gents.

    I am still seriously considering the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. I also spoke to Bulli (Andre) from Auto Technic in Silverton about potential issues, cost of services etc.

    My next...
  15. Re: FJ Cruiser Buying Advise - what is considered high mileage?

    They had it for R350 k and when I spoke to the salesman this morning he stated R350 k. He was supposed to get back to me with photos. I supposed that is why I haven't received any yet.
  16. Re: FJ Cruiser Buying Advise - what is considered high mileage?

    Good price! Why did you trade your Rubicon in for the FJ if I may ask?
  17. Re: FJ Cruiser Buying Advise - what is considered high mileage?

    There is a nice 2014 FJ Cruiser available at East Toyota in Eshowe. Any forumites that are in the area and willing to go and have a look?

    For people with vehicles under warranty the dealers has got us by the ..... IMHO you should be able to keep your warranty if you do repairs/services at any RMI accredited workshop.
  19. Re: FJ Cruiser Buying Advise - what is considered high mileage?

    So it would essentially be the same concept if I fit a Frontrunner long range tank.
  20. Re: FJ Cruiser Buying Advise - what is considered high mileage?

    Another question slightly of topic. Regarding the 2013 models with the long range OEM fuel tank, what does the the fuel tank look like? Is it one long tank or still two separate ones? Most of the...

    Unfortunately Vhembe is booked for the dates that we have available.
  22. Re: FJ Cruiser Buying Advise - what is considered high mileage?

    ;) Does it at least show information such as trip distance A and trip distance B? Just not sure if it only shows the odometer of if there is something faulty on the specimen that I am considering to...
  23. Re: FJ Cruiser Buying Advise - what is considered high mileage?

    Does the FJ Cruiser have a trip computer showing stuff like Trip A and Trip B and calculated consumption? I took one for a test drive the other day and pushed the button on the instrument cluster but...
  24. Wrangler 4dr Re: Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 3.6 V6 - buying used for overlanding

    Jelo,

    So I take it that spares and service centres are not common in Botswana and Namibia?

    The roof rack does not seem to be too much of an issue - Frontrunner makes a short one and long one...

  29. Re: FJ Cruiser Buying Advise - what is considered high mileage?

    I checked on the Frontrunner website - 100 l tank with gravity feed. R7 925 excluding fitment.
  30. Re: FJ Cruiser Buying Advise - what is considered high mileage?

    Thank you. How does the long range fuel tank from Frontrunner work in terms of the fuel gauge and trip computer? Is it a gravity feed to the main tank?
  31. Re: FJ Cruiser Buying Advise - what is considered high mileage?

    A long time = 10 years.

    So 300 000 km - 150 000 km = 150 000 km.

    So these vehicles will be good for 300 000 km?
