    Re: Understanding a BMS

    A Battery Monitoring System does not charge batteries. It only monitors their condition and state of charge, hence the thin wires. There's a lot of circuitry missing from your drawing and also a lot...

    Re: High lift Jack

    Ensure the extension has play on the foot of the jack. Then this won't happen.

    Re: Wheel Alignment Issues?

    When last was the fitment centre's wheel alignment machinery calibrated? I had the same done on my JMC in Bloem in 2014 (Alignment settings are for a 2001 Isuzu KB) and the one front tyre was visibly...

    Unless you wear glasses like I do. I've seen the trauma caused by a combination of an airbag and glasses. In the only collision I have ever had (Hit hard from behind while stopped and pushed into the...
  7. Re: Global NCAP zero stars for the 2019 Nissan NP300 Hardbody

    Airbags are not going to help if you hit a Kudu at speed. Seen plenty of those vehicles in this area. The Kudu tends to end up inside the vehicle with the occupants. One occupant usually impaled by...

    Re: What camera to take on trip

    If you can use those Canon EOS features and have another longer lens, I would opt for one of them.
  10. Re: Global NCAP zero stars for the 2019 Nissan NP300 Hardbody

    Some of us don't want some of the safety features in working vehicles. I would have had both the Isuzu Frontier 4x4 and JMC 4x4 written off had they had air bags. I hit a small buck at 110km'h on a...

    That's the norm here. Even members that have no idea of a subject are willing to answer and even tell those who have been in an industry for years that they are wrong.

    Re: Some advice for chobe and Moremi please.

    You can definitely do what you asked. But would you want to? Linyanti - Savuti is a days hard 4x4 low range drive all on it's own as are parts of the rest. You need more rest than time on the road.

    You're lion bait on a bicycle or motorcycle in Botswana Parks. The reason you don't see them there and I doubt they're even allowed for that reason.

    This was a hit and miss diagnosis by either unqualified persons or by a business milking you. Fluid levels, a test and adjustment should have been the sequence before flushing and then replacing.
