    Re: Those who said, electric vehicle, NEVER!

    EV's battery packs need to be made universal, you stop at a fuel station and pull out flat battery and replace with charged battery. You pay for the juice in the battery and be on your way.

    Glad I found this thread, me and Swambo were looking at the Conqueror Comfort. We will now look at other brands rather.

    R1750 per day is really not bad. R70 per hour so use and abuse somebody else's 4x4? A bargain.

    Re: Better tyre options for new Navara 4X4

    I would go up a size to 265/60/18 GY Wranglers.

    Fitted them to my Amarok, gained a slight lift over the stock 255HT's.

    Handling is excellent on tar even at silly speeds, no road noise at all,...
