    Yes, 4x4. But I will spill some beans, when I have the job in hand.

    I did 4,000km in 5 days, last week.

    This tri-axle setup is the way to go. Tyres never overheated, bearings never overheated. For that matter, they got warm, but never hot. Extremely stable.

    What I have noticed is that the u-bolts work themselves loose and it broke a locating pin. Then the axle moved and touched the next wheel. Scrapping the tyre.

    So now busy checking all the locating pins and u-bolts. Other than that, need to pick up some free play on the brakes. But that is it.

    This thing is a winner.

    Dankie Francois!!

    Henri, ek sien party van jou vragte is swaar! Oorskrei jy nie jou tou voertuig se massa met van jou vragte nie? Hoe kom jy verby die weegbrug bv op die N1 noord van Pta of die een net suid van Heidelberg?

    Eintlik is ek bitter selde oor. 3500kg is dem swaar.
    In dieselfde asem, stel niemand in my belang nie. Ry al die weegbrue verby.

    It fell through.

    But I got back last night from another recovery from Walvisbay. 4 days, 3900km.

    This "team" keeps on surprising me. They are just brilliant.

    Been threatening do do this for a while.

    Now if you break down with your trailer, the trailer comes with. The car on the deck.

    Not attached at the moment. That is just a drop plate for however high the tow hitch needs to be.
