    Re: Camping in KNP

    At Shingwedzi, The S56 Mphongolo loop. Drive slowly, check the riverbed thoroughly. That road can be absolutely magic. Also one of the prettiest roads in Kruger.

    Re: Camping in KNP

    I think if you read it rather to be a "don't" than a "check this out!", then it's actually very good advice.

    Re: What did you do to your Mitsu Today ?

    How did you skirt around the facia issue, if I may ask? Did the unit come with its own facia? Or did you manage to squeeze the radio into the existing facia?

    Re: How damaging is corrugation?

    Thanks for this. I've got a brand new set of Good Year Wrangler AT Adventures on my car (265/65R17). When I enter Kruger I'll drop it to 1.7bar, and drive the mixed combination of tar and dirt, and...

    What kind of damage will you do to your tires if you drive at 1.5bar on tar? Albeit at relatively low speeds... The reason I'm asking, is I go into Kruger quite often, and each trip I average about...

    Re: New 2019 Triton

    My fickle brain just says that at 120km/h an 8-speed or 10-speed box will sit at a lower rpm than a 5 or 6-speed. Fuel consumption is the only factor in that assumption. Since I don't have a trailer,...

    I paid R250 for mine. It may have been due to the lock already having been replaced by Ford, so there were no broken parts on SWAMBO's vehicle.
