    No Problem, will help you to plan accordingly.

    You guys can consider Kungwini as well. The training track might make it easier for people who just want to look?

    Ek wil 'n voorstel maak: Of ons dalk 'n finale lys kan saamstel van almal wat RSVP met hul voertuie en basiese beskrywing van wat hulle 4x4 stelsel behels.

    Well I see you have a v6 and mine is a manual 90Kw so quite different. I am not a big modifier, but my wagon is currently at mikem's getting the shocks serviced and I am adding "lift." Actually I just noticed that the front was starting to sag with the winch, so I asked them for a solution and they say the slightly stiffer spring will add a few mm to the front and then they are putting spacers under the rear springs? I hate the idea of spacers, but they say the stock springs are parabolic and much better to keep than putting in crappy aftermarket springs which I agree with.

    So I will be very slightly modified, but still on Ht tyres.

    We can see on the day; depends on the obstacles. Mine just has All Terrain tyres, otherwise it's stock. Those that know me a little bit will be sick of me saying this again, but I bought my vehicle for touring, not for 4x4-ing. Love watching it though...

    Ond kan dalk n lys maak van die verskullunde voertuie..maar in terme van watter stelsel hulle behels sal dalk n bietjie moulik wees. Soms weet nie eers wat n paar van daai knopies voor is nie.
