    Die eerste dag wat ek die 200 van die vloer af getrek vat ek hom toe Helderberg 4x4 toe om so bietjie die knoppies te toets

    Begin wiele af blaas. Al die wiele was ver oor die 4Bar gewees 🤔🤔🤔

    So nou wie de hel sÍ vir die mense om wiele so styf te pomp?

    Fitted the wheel spacers and Onca fender flares. Took it for a quick 110km run.

    The more I drive the v6 the more I am convinced that diff ratio change will do better on the v8 than the upgraded 5th gear. The v6 and V8 have the same gearbox and diff`s. V6 have so much more usable rev range. Thimk the v8 can do with longer ratio`s in all gears.

    Ek verstaan dat dit n 6x6 Mega Tourer is maar luister na die comments oor die nude 5de rat.

    Kyk van 31min af

    Kyk ook van 24 min af oor die comments oor die air box

    My issue met die diff ratios is dan is jou LR ook langer. En ek verstaan diie V8 het nie eintlik torque nie so hy ruk klaar maklik dood

    Single, think it is only Prado and FJ that have dual vvti. From there the 200kw vs the 170 of the V6 Cruiser.

    In 4x4 LR het ek eerste op die v8 baie laag gevind. En ja mens moet sy RPM maar hier bo 1500 hou as jy ernstig 4x4. Maar as jy hom eer verstaan het hy genoeg torque. Ek dink die Yank v8`s bederf my bietjie.

    A trip from Kathu to Olifantshoek and back, Kathu - Kuruman and back. Fair amount of hills.

    140km/h run did see 5km/l which included some town driving.

    Sy eie tripmeter. Het hom nog nie met GPS vergelyk nie. Die v8 se tripmeter lees 5km per 100km te min.

    The ARB bumper and winch proof to be to heavy for the standard front coils and pushed the nose down.

    Dropped the front suspension and installed a set of Ironman coils. Nice and level now. Think I am going to try a set of Rancho shock`s in the future.

    The rear I will do like Jan Slabber says. "Sit sy gat op air."

    The v6 starts to look like a Cruiser now
