    Explain your issue. Why should we phone back?
  2. Re: Three new bakkies that could unsettle the cart when they arrive in SA

    Sweis, it doesn't apply to all. Go tell me a Raptor clone as a daily drive isn't a fashion statement. And methinks you feel the arrow is close to home.
  3. Re: Three new bakkies that could unsettle the cart when they arrive in SA

    Yep. A Jeep Gladiator is just as much a fashion statement, it can hardly be considered very practical and certainly not cheap.

    I would also just buy an LC70 and be done.

    yep

    I suspect that farm bakkie hasn't had an oil change in years and is running on sludge.

    Surely removing a plug every 2 weeks and wire brushing it quickly after a quick soak in benzine or acetone isn't a big job?

    Your rings are obviously completely clogged with carbon and oil...

    Re: Your Idea of a Beginner Overland Vehicle

    Can't agree here. That Patrol that Petri just sold has been barely run in and will probably outlast anything you've owned.

    Re: Your Idea of a Beginner Overland Vehicle

    "Toyota land cruiser 80, 105 or a Land Rover Defender 110 or Nissan Patrol?"

    And your answer is a Pajero?

    Amazing.

    I say Patrol.

    don't underestimate microprocessor speed and capacity

    Not so long ago, variable valve timing and multi-point sequential injection was impossible: now just about every single new vehicle has it.
