    Check where the leak comes from. If you spray some soapy water on that strut where the line enters the strut, you might see air coming out. Wiggle the line/pipe to make sure. Both of mine leaked...

    Look, it's not badly priced for what you get. But it's still a lot of money to spend. Can't wait to see one in the flesh! On 37s

    Yep, should have. You can check your JK's build sheet to confirm.

    Re: JK - Time to just give up?

    Well, a Sahara comes with 3.73s and a Rubicon with 4.10s in SA, so 33s will be more than fine on either.

  13. Re: All new Kia Carnival - any feedback or opinions?

    Awesome to hear, thanks man. Will see if I can get to test drive a Carnival soon, perhaps also a low mileage Grand Sedona just to compare!:)
  14. Re: All new Kia Carnival - any feedback or opinions?

    Hi Karol, the Sorento looks amazing but I feel like one gets a little bit more with the Carnival for a slightly "cheaper" price (massive assumption I'm making here). But I haven't compared the two...
  15. Re: All new Kia Carnival - any feedback or opinions?

    Thanks Nico!! Yes even the Sedona turns my head every time I see one on the road. How has the engine and gearbox treated you? Any significant issues I should be aware of?

  16. Re: All new Kia Carnival - any feedback or opinions?

    Yes, I've seen that! Pretty awesome for that extra space. This is probably because the vehicle is front wheel drive, which is not the best I'd say. If the Carnival was AWD like the Kia Sorento for...

    Thanks for your input Henkus. How did the Sedona treat you ito reliability and overall maintenance? As mentioned, the Rio we have had been spectacular but it is a N/A petrol with minimal electronics...
  18. Re: All new Kia Carnival - any feedback or opinions?

    Probably true ito the Staria. I presume the Kia's handling will be a bit better due to a lower COG compared to the more upright Staria as well. Again, I haven't driven any of these so I'm just...

    Re: Decisions Decisions Decisions

    Diesel range is better than petrol, yes. But not a lot. I reckon taking maintenance costs in consideration, petrol vs diesel will probably be the same in the longer run.

    I can't comment on the CRD specifics, I just know the 2.8's aren't very reliable at high mileages unless properly maintained from new.

    The 5.7 will defn be the better tow vehicle here, although the 3.6 should have enough power and torque. As for a daily, the 3.6 will be better ito fuel consumption. The 3.6 will probably average...

    I'm 99% sure this is the 4-speed found in the 3.8s (or 3-speed with overdrive or whatever you want to call it). Had a 2010 model with the exact same setup as in the pic, the only difference is the...
