    Ek het nogal gehoop Die 4x4 Show klaar dit vir ons uit die naweek, maar toe ry hulle `n grondpad wat jy met `n kar kan ry.

    Trailrider, Ek ry daagliks met `n Jeep met 37" wiele. Jy is meer as welkom om die AT te bring en saam met ons te kom ry. Ek sien uit daarna om `n AT op die volgende RTI dag te sien. Ons hoef ook nie R160k se mods aan te bring om net 35" wiele te kan opsit nie. Jy kan maar LW gaan Google vir die artikel wat oor my Jeep gedoen is, al die kostes is daar.

    En sover dit kop ondersoeke aangaan, enige person wat iets weet van 4x4`s weet dat as jy groter bande opsit moet jy diff ratios verander, steering versterk, ens. Daar word soveel stress op die ratkas, ens gesit dat dit gaan oppak. En dit gaan nie op die eerste trip gebeur nie. Dit sal waarskynlik hou tot die waarborg verval het.

    `n Afrika trip is ook nie meer `n uitdaging nie, die paaie word nou so vining geteer deur die Chinese. `n Jaar terug het ons grondpad gery tot by Ramabanta en Thaba Tseka. Nou is dit teerpad. Elke keer wat ek die tyd het om Voetspore te kyk is hulle ook op `n teerpad.

    Julle ouens is daar in Gauteng. Gaan maak 'n draai by LA Sports Silver Lakes dan kan julle sommer al die tegniese vrae vra en die antwoorde uit die perd se bek kry. Gary Swemmer is mos 'n ou bekende bos mechanic in 4x4 kringe hy sal vir jou regtig 'n ingeligte opinie kan gee.

    Bear in mind I don't work for Arctic Trucks I'm a journo. I ride and drive all kinds of things. One thing I have picked up over the years is the aspirational vehicles pick up the most flack. As mens iets afmaak hoef jy mos nie meer sleg te voel oor jy dit nie kan ry nie.

    If you don't like it great. No vehicle is liked by everybody. Ek is net hier om bietjie fotos te wys en die info (wat ek het) oor te dra. Join LA Sports Silver Lakes on Facebook and you'll be amazed at the rate they churn out these Arctic Truck conversions. Piere Botha en andre sal 'n hartaanval kry (grappie! ). It's received very well by the market. More and more of these are being built and despite all the dooms sayers I've not heard of any "catastrophic" mishaps yet.

    Maybe someone on the forum owns one?

    En hulle sal hom vir jou bou. Mits jou begroting dit toelaat. Lees weer die hele draad deur. Die goed is custom voertuie. Die kliŽnt besluit of dit 33" of 35" wiele of watookal is. As die kliŽnt die gearbox wil doen en diffs en die aste wil skuif om 44" wiele te pas sal hulle dit vir jou doen. Hulle het die expertise of vir jou presies te bou wat jy wil hÍ. Arctic Trucks bou tot voertuie vir militÍre gebruik in verskeie weermagte.

    "Ordentlike 4x4" is 'n los term wat verskillende dinge vir verskillende mense beteken. Sommige ouens sien 'n "look" en se dis nou 'n "Ordentlike 4x4". En dis sy volste reg. Ander ouens wil oor rotse en goed ry en dan is so voertuig vir hulle 'n "Ordentlike 4x4". Dis natuurlik ook reg. Die twee ouens sal nie saamstem nie maar hoekom hoef hulle? Elke ou spandeer sy eie geld volgens sy eie behoeftes.

    Die ouens van Arctic kan 'n voertuig weerskante toe bou. Dit hang af van wat die kliŽnt wil hÍ. As 'n kliŽnt iets anders wou hÍ as jy en jy stem nie saam met sy voertuig nie maak dit nie Arctic sleg nie.

    Die Ford hierbo is die eerste Arctic wat ek gery het wat meer "trip"-ingerig was. Daarmee bedoel ek nou daar was ander modifikasies ook soos die winch en die Alu-Cab en en en. KliŽnt se behoeftes.

    Al wat ek wel weet is dat ek nou al met verskeie ombouings te doen gehad het en die vakmanskap is top-notch. Daar was ander posts terug in die thread wat dit ook beaam. Die goed is mooi, daarvan getuig die verkope. En hulle kan ernstige voertuie bou. Ek dink nie iemand anders het al voertuie gebou wat pole toe gery het nie? Punt is, of jy nou 'n 4x2 Navara ombou vir die look of 'n Arctic Hilux op 44"s wat Suid Pool toe ry, die produkte is goed. Dis my professionele opinie.

    I understand that there will be several Arctic Trucks on show at JIMS at the TJM Africa stand, including a Land Rover.

    I agree that, 4WD Truckin Co is the way to go if you want conversions done, they are very knowledgeable in this field.
    I fitted bigger tyres and they needed to do a conversion for me to accommodate the tyre size and I am very happy with the outcome.

    Still no 110 Defender by Arctic Trucks? They did a D90 one-off only?

    Trailrider, TJM Pretoria East have posted many articles on Arctic Trucks. I saw a Leisurewheels mag which had Ranger T6, Hilux, Amarok, Merc G63, Defender 90 and a Landcruiser 100 D/C. Check this out at http://www.tjmsa.co.za/arctic-trucks-equipped-by-tjm/
