    Re: 2017 PS towing capacity?

    Re: LC VXR 2017 Air conditioner filter

    You want to keep the rest of the aircon ducts as clean as possible, it's easier to replace the filter than to try and clean all the ducts after the filter perished.

    Hi Johan, maybe add the photo first. It probably is a blister fender or also known as the Gen 2.5. But there is a small chance it might be an early Gen3.

    The 3.2 is indeed called the 4M41 since its inception in 1999 and both Gen 3 and 4 uses this engine.

    Re: Everest - 3.2 or 2.2BiT

    I fully agree with you. As far as I know gears 8, 9 and 10 are overdrive gears and rather meant for economy. So you will see a lot of gear changes when towing in those gears.

    Re: Everest - 3.2 or 2.2BiT

    3.2 tows better than the biturbo, that is according to the Australians in any case. For everyday use the biturbo is better/more fuel efficient.
