    So much to see! I think Bastervoetpad will be a great option. We are doing the Eastern Cape for the scenic drives after all!
    Jimny is an awesome little 4x4 ;D

    If we do Bastervoed it will be from West to East. I think the Jimny will handle it if there has not been any rain.

    Thanks for the feedback! Quite a way around having to go back via Butha-Buthe but I guess that's all part and parcel of the journey as things don't always go to plan.

    Bilstein B6 shocks for Jimny... yes? no?

    Has anyone had any experience with Bilstein B6 shocks for the Jimny?
