  1. Re: Motorised jockey wheel for boat trailer

    Check out the lowrance local website. They have something of this sort but it is very expensive. I would rather just go with a front tow hitch if you can.
  2. Re: March Difflock vs Traction Control brekkie Run

    Even me. My madam has to make a trek to Kzn as the school keeps shifting the calendar, but I shall bring myself and the amarok without her.

    Re: Rubber duck trip down Orangeriver

    Sounds like a ### trip. Just to those who are considering something like this.

    We took around 8 families when our kids were all around 6-7years old and did a 5 day trip with Felix Unite. They...

    Re: Getting a feel for a BAD decision...?

    At some point, and you are probably there, your car may be worth more to you than giving it to a dealer. My amarok is over 300k so I know it is worth more to me than anything I would get on a trade...

    Re: Bike rack "bracket"

    I am 100% sure that front runner and thule will have a solution. You need to make sure your canopy can handle the load. I think the ali ones are fine. I have a cheap fibreglass canopy and the front...

    Grand Cherokee Re: Unichip

    Agreed, if you want good consumption, drive slower. If you want more power, fit a turbo or a bigger motor. Chipping a modern petrol vehicle will have little effect if any.

    I bought a fortuner for my wife recently, but the Mistsubishi equivalent was on the short list and looks pretty nice and was well priced. The Isuzu MUX was also considered, but felt a bit smaller...

  11. Re: March Difflock vs Traction Control brekkie Run

    Does anyone know if the venue is Mountain Bike Friendly. I may want to drop my son off and let him ride while we do the trail and test this dodgy section? I cant recall if there were MTB riders there?

  13. Re: Fitting a low profile warn winch behind the front bumper on a 2004 Prado 120

    Get one of those reciprocating tools and just slice the bumper so you can get your paws in there. This is what I did for my amarok. Still looks very neat.
  14. Re: Touareg - dash lights up but engine doesn't swing

    I would add to this. On my amarok, there are a lot of connectors and fuses on the battery +ve connection. I kept loosing all my setting and was thinking that the Main ECU was on the way out. It...

    Re: How does the 2.4 tow?

    Whenever these threads come up, you guys really need to cast your mind back a few years. People towed heavy boats and vans around (all over africa) with a 2 & 1/4Ltr petrol landrovers for many years....

    I would agree with others that you should wall mount everything and avoid cabinets if you can. If this is in a garage you get pretty irritated with banging your head, shoulder or other body part into...

    Re: Towing a Conqueror Commander

    I saw a 200 cruiser towing a Ace Glider 750, which must be over the 3500kgs. I am sure that it will manage things less than that with ease.

    Re: How does the 2.4 tow?

    I would say 125Km/hr is pretty brisk for towing duties, especially if the mass is getting up there.

    I tow just fine with a 2ltr 90Kw Amarok but it does battle on hills, but my tow mass is...

    I am not super current on this, but I have it on good authority that Michelin spend more on R&D than any of the other manufacturers. I cannot vouch for this info, but they certainly were out in front...
