    Toyota adjusted (probably bent) mine when I got mine in 2017 as I had the same issue. Been working fine ever since :)

    I've also seen trailers at BL where the steadies have been strapped in the lock position with extra bungee cords etc so your experience of sheared pins is probably not unique :(

    Checking for a friend...does the 3.2 ranger/everest automatically shift gears when in low range or do you manually need to shift?

    Re: Bush Lapa mods

    Just check one thing.

    You get the normal BlueSolar 75/15 (no Bluetooth) and then you get the SmartSolar 75/15 that has Bluetooth. Latter much better in my opinion and about R400 or so more IIRC.
