    You do not ask a 4X4 owner for prices of accessories. SWAMBO is prowling this forum

    TRE4X4 in PE will do the fitment.

    As per the quote above and the entire thread, we're all interested in this. So if you're not going to tell us publicly, why don't you at least pm everyone on this thread? Or at least share the contact details with us and we can find out ourselves.

    I just spoke to André from the PE distributor of TRE4x4. The price is not confirmed yet as import costs etc will only be available once it lands. But the estimate is R14 500.00

    If you in PE he will organize fitment otherwise they are in talks with guys in JHB and CPT about distributing and fitment.

    Your current tank gets removed and this one installed in its place. You go form a standard 40 liter tank to a 65 liter tank.

    It should be obvious if you look at the picture of the tank and also where on earth will you find place on a Jimny for a second tank of 65 liters.

    At least SWAMBO now knows how much he spent.

    Roof rack + two Jerrys gets you almost there for less. Still not quite worth it.

    Different benefits of accessories will have different acceptable price for every person.

    Every person has his need and has his price. What work or is acceptable for one person might not be deemed acceptable for another.

    I agree that it's a lot of money. But it's not expensive... let me explain. If you have the capabilties/willing to carry a jerry or two you are doubling your range. That still puts you short of the overlanding standard of 1000km range. Now you fit this tank and still carry your two jerrys you are looking at having a range of 1200km+-. That to me is worth a lot! And if you apply the principle of never passing a fuel station without filling up you will never worry about running low on fuel on most if not all overland/offroad routes. It may even allow you to take that detour that only 5 other people have seen because everyone else needs to push to the next fuel stop.

    I was always told and I maintain the best modification/accessory to your 4x4 is a full tank of fuel because that is what will get you there and back.

    So yes R14500 is A LOT of money but it's definitely worth putting pennys in a pig and cutting down on some luxuries because the potential memories you could gain by having this fitted are worth far more than a few rands.

    Now does anyone know where I can buy piggy bank

    Mmmmmm… In that case, I'll go with 3 jerry cans

    R14500 is a new off-road suspension, i'd never pay that just to carry 25l extra fuel... that sounds like madness
