    Went out to see what the mighty Rexton could do. Was very impressed. Driving with an automatic takes some getting used to. Definitely need some AT tyres. Next thing on the to do list. Did manage to smack the rear once. O well Click image for larger version.

    Fitted some new proper rubber over the weekend. Discovery Cooper AT3s. A big improvement over the standard street Hankooks that were on. Even on the road.

    Macky, SYong posts always catch my eye. Love your rubber - now for the trails. Absolutely loved the smoothness of my auto Korando. My advice - upgrade your air cleaner/intake, my care never recovered after some dunes and sand went through turbo and engine. Enjoy!

    Thanks Johan. Really liking the rubber. Even on the road. did a quick drive up the veld by my place. Much better. Still trying to figure a lift for this thing. May have some custom spacer made. the stupid "steps" catch on most things, as they hang below the chassis. Weird as I think I measured over 240mms under chassis, and only about 200 under the sills. I am looking for a snorkel. Found some crazy expensive 1s over seas nothing local, may look at moving the intake for the air box 180 so pulls air from the rear of the box. May require an intercooler sprayer for off road work if I do that. Help keep the intake Temps down. All work in progress.

    Engine bay is quite a bit of work. And you need to make a bracket for the pillar mount.

    Note. Your airbox needs to sit in driver side

    Hi,

    Mine (the white one) is a 1998 musso 602 Non turbo, converted in SA by Alpine to Turbo. So I dont think its what Ssangyong originally supplied to SA with the Musso.

    I did NOT see the engine bay of the silver one before I added my snorkel, so I am not sure if its an Alpine turbo'd musso as well

    As long as the Airbox is on the driver side you should be able to make a plan if you are hands on like me. The snorkel makes changing the air filter more work on mine though

    Regards
    Carel

    In July we took our 2005 Rexton 2.7 to Namibia and Botswana
    Starting from Pretoria we went to:
    1. The Kgalagadi Transfrontier park
    2. Fish River Canyon-Hobas and Ais Ais
    3. Luderitz
    4. Sossusvlei
    5. Walvis Bay
    6. Etosha
    7. Caprivi
    8. Chobe

    A big weak point on the car is its fuel tank and its badly designed protection plate, we got 4 holes and a crack in the tank as a result, the baffle also came loose and the meter stopped working.

    The car handled everything well, but the rear sags allot with 3 guys and their luggage for 2 weeks, with the load it hits the bump stops quite easily.
    The low ground clearance also meant that we scraped the middleman on the sand roads in Chobe allot, especially over bumps.

    Other than that, the car handled everything well, fuel consumption for the 6-7000km trip was around 9l/100km despite the diesel lost due to the leak and fixing attempts.
    We got 1 puncture in Namibia, with the 265/70R16 Pirelli Scorpion ATRs, that was plugged easily.

    Erik,
    That 4 holes you got in the tank was caused by the fuel "Baffler" on the inside that broke loose when the protection plate was pushed upwards. It is spot welded. Once it moves then the float get stuck showing empty or full or in between. You cannot get the "Baffler" out , so I screwed it onto the metal pipes going in to keep it in position. ( It look like a metal 2 lt ice cream tub)
    The holes I sealed with "Steenvas" epoxy.
    I did this without removing the tank, only the protection plate.

    Haven't been anywhere lately, but did finally sort out the ride on the Rex. New coils, equalling 50mm lift over stock. While i was there, i was chatting to the guys, and measuring. after checking the measurements, all 4 corners had different measurements. the greatest difference was between the driver front and back passanger. over 20mms difference .the other 2 corners where 15mm lower than the back left. dont recall the exact measurement. but on a car thats only 6 years old, thats a lot of sag on the stock coils. Guys might want to check. your coils may be on the way out! The 50mm lift is too much. 40mm i think would have been sofficiant. There is a slight driveshaft vibration that needs to be sorted, but the extra stability and ride quality is WELL worth it! Now to go hit De Weldt or Hennops again!!
