  2. Suspension Re: 2000 VW T3 Microbus Exclusive - Suspension

    Monroe shocks are fine and bushes can be bought from agents. For coils I'll go to scrapyard. There are thousands of those buses on the roads. Suspension parts should be plentiful in scrapyards

    Re: your experiences with a PortaPotti

    The chemicals do an amazing job of dissolving even toilet paper and leaving an (almost) odourless liquid.



    This had me smiling out loud. Can just imagine the sight, sounds and smells!;D

    Porat Potti was one of my better camping purchases. Wife loves it and I even use it from time to time. Won't be without it again, ever!

    D4d with FSH and in good condition is a safe bet. They are no nonsense vehicles.

  24. Re: Advice needed: trade-in or Sell privately - Heritage Edition V6

    I just looked at the rims which are not 2013 and thought it was an older model. I'll retract my guesstimate of R180k. You should get more but still not easy.

    Re: Hilux wanted. Advice please.

    Agree. I went through the exercise 4 months ago. Eventually bit the bullet and bought a 2.8 GD6 since Hiluxes second hand go for crazy prices. A 2.4 GD6 for 250k will have at least 300000km on the...

  30. Re: Advice needed: trade-in or Sell privately - Heritage Edition V6

    I cannot see you getting more than 180k max for that bakkie. The V6 4x2 is a very difficult seller. But to answer you're question, yes selling privately should be better, but not easy.
  31. Re: Interesting Ranger 3.2 vs 2.0 BTdi tow test

    Technology evolves constantly. There are countless 2.0l Amaroks out there with higher mileage than that without too many problems. Engine size is not automatically an indication of reliability. A...
