    Re: Tyre Comparisons

    Heavier is generally worse but you have to get the balance between durability and light weight.

    My Goodyear Wrangler Adventures in 245 / 70 R 16 are just over 16kg each compare to a BFG AT in the...

    Dakar Support / Recce Vehicles - Hilux

    Hey guys

    Interesting to see that the recce teams and the medics are still using what look like the same Hiluxes they had in South America.

    I'd love to see a list of mods - look very basic I...

    Agree. New Fortuner is easily as comfortable / safe etc as a 2010 Disco 3.
  5. 2010 BT-50 3.0 CRDi to similar age / newer Hilux 2.5 SRX 4x4

    Hi Guys

    Thinking of moving from my current bakkie that's been mostly good to me to a Hilux 2.5 SRX.

    Mazda is on 175 000 km and I bought it 5 years old with 60 000 km on the clock.

    I got it...

    Re: Bakkie Bed Rack (for Kayak transport)

    I disagree - if you live in Durban and paddle many guys take two 30 plus KG fishing skis on a DC roof.

  9. Re: Moving to Mud-Terrains? What should I be aware of?

    I hope I can find some Hankooks at a decent price when I need tyres . They are awesome.
  10. Re: Moving to Mud-Terrains? What should I be aware of?

    I would agree with your last point, the Achilles is quite an aggressive MT and possibly not as careful designed for road noise etc as something from a huge brand like BFG or Goodyear etc.
  11. Re: Moving to Mud-Terrains? What should I be aware of?

    That size jump is very reasonable - two of my three diesel bakkies I've gone from 245 to 265 and couldn't really tell the difference.

    I've always had Hankook Dynapro MT but they have also got...

    Re: Hankook Dynapro MT

    Love Hankook MT's.

    Had them on a 4x2 Triton and my Defender 90.

    I honestly got places in that Triton that no 4x2 had a right to go - sand, mud, even snow.

    Road noise - it's a MT but not as...

  22. Squeaking from drivetrain in reverse and running against 1st and 2nd downhill

    Hey Team

    As above, my 2010 4x2 3.0 CRDi BT-50 has a very annoying and high pitched squeak.

    It only happens in reverse and at low speeds in first and second if I'm running against compression.
