    Default Nissan Patrol 4.5 GRX STUCK ON BABOONS PASS

    Good afternoon,
    My 2000 Nissan Patrol 4.5 GRX is stuck on Baboons Pass. Vehicle broke a plastic pipe on the Radiator after a serious recovery. I need a new Radiator however Silverton Radiators have no stock. Rescue is being arranged for the coming weekend with a few Jeeps - anyone that wants to join is welcome at own cost. Sleeping at Ramabanta lodge, lodge or camping available. Any help with sourcing the new radiator greatly appreciated. Riaan Jooste 0645380585.

    Riaan, bel bietjie Silverton in Bethlehem, praat met Gerrit Steenkamp. Hy het self klomp Nissans en is net so Nissan Mal soos Reenen.

    Of Chris - Gerrit is so semi retired.

    So terwyl ek tik het ek gou Chris gebel, hy kyk gou en kom terug na my toe.

    Thanks all, seems like Tinus Lotz from the Patrol forum is able to assist. The invite to join the recovery still stands - Baboons is extremely hectic at this point in time - last 1.3 km took us (7 vehicles ) 7 hours! So if you want a serious challenge..

    Sorry Riaan, twice in a week is a bit hectic. I am still recovering, but it was a great experience.

    Thanks again.

    Friend of mine had to wait three weeks for a rad on a 4.8. The were able to do a temp repair. At that stage nobody had stock.

    Riaan, jy nou reggekom met radiator en/of parts??

    Chris het nog nie teruggekom na my toe nie. Maar jy het sy nommer, bel maar net weer as dit moet, ek het reeds met hom gechat.

    Waar staan die kar, en is die kar "verlate"?? Of is daar mense wat kyk?

    Sakkie was just thinking about you this morning. Serious 4x4 stuff calls the serious 4x4 lovers.
