    Re: Off road tyre pressure

    I found with the XT140 it bounces on tar a lot more with low pressure, when it is light. I usually pump it to 2.0 for tar. The trailer weighs 600 kg empty.

    Re: What tyres do you suggest

    The GY Wrangler Adventurerer AT you get in SA doesn't have Kevlar in the sidewall, just the running surface. Read the fine print on the tyre, what plies the sidewall is made off.

  11. Re: Why No Jeep Wranglers or Gladiators Through SA, Namibia, or Botswana?

    If you want to argue with the fact that Toyota spares are significantly more widely available than Jeep parts north of the boerewors equator, then it's time for you to travel a bit further north.
