    Default The big change from Disco 4 to 2.4l Fortuner

    So last weekend I took on my new 4x4, changed from a Disco 4 to the 2.4l Fortuner 2018

    so far very happy with the car, just did a 2000 kl drive mostly tar but some 4x4ing will come up shortly

    All in all very happy with the car and the price, fuel economy was really good as I averaged at about 7.7 per 100kl

    Its a bit baffling on the 4x4 side, the disco just does everything, now I need to look at doing it myself and Im still not sure when to use the rear locker as it says only engage when your stuck... we will learn

    I see you can get lift kits for the tuner but not sure if its worth the effort, will see how the car goes offroad and decide from there.

    Must say the car feels very different to the old D4D, just hope its kept its ruggedness

    The traction control on die Fortuner is very good. Most of the time you won't need DL. If you want to use DL just switch it on before the obstacle and go.

    Have a look at the video below, I did the entire trail by only using TC.

    At De Wildt I have mostly used DL to reduce wheel spin:

    For sand you switch of everything and use DL where you have cross axles:

    I have OME installed and are happy so far.
