    PM sent back. Was busy today for some reason I am posting it here for full disclosure as well. This is a 10 year old car so does have some defects.

    My disclosure to Caracal:

    I would think my best price will be R 130 000. That puts me is a R 15 000 deficit when I pay Wesbank the final number. I can accept that.
    The car is DIRTY!! Will take the pics in the morning. Not in perfect shape, but in decent enough condition for a 10 year old car.


    I am not the first owner. Think third.
    The previous owner did a service every 15 000km. Since I bought the car 3 years ago, it was serviced by Jacques Norval every 10 000km as it should be.
    I will service it before you drive it away, should you decide to buy it.
    It will come with a valid Roadworthy as well.


    A word of caution though as you are part of this community.


    The airbag light is on. This will be sorted soon as the Clock Spring arrived. Goes in the steering wheel. Should be done this weekend.
    The top of the windscreen has some rust. No water coming though, but I suppose this will need to be inspected soon.


    The rust was there since I bought it and never got worst than it was. Will take a pic.
    The side steps are a bit bend, thank you Welgelegen 4x4 and Klein Tafelberg.
    A scratch on the rear corner where my trailer bumped into. Surface scratches but took the paint off. Will take a pic.
    The antenna broke off. The FM reception was always poorish and this did not affect that.
    The wiper arms will need to be set or replaced. Does not always wipe perfectly. I tried. I failed. Usually wipes great, especially if it rains very hard. So I think the blades are good.
    Hit a water washout on a dirt road a while back. The rear rim cracked. Tyre in perfect condition. Using it now on the car actually. Had the rim repaired. Looks good and is the spare.


    Had the suspension checked by insurance but all was perfect. So no claim.
    No accidents while I had the car either. I could not find traces of previous repairs either.




    Mechanical very good. I had no repairs done in 3 years. Only a link on the front suspension. Cost me R 350 I think. Worn rubber.
    The car drives lekker at 110km/h. Giving me 11km/l.
    When I drive to Namibia I keep it at 125km/h and it goes down to around 10km/l. Not bad I think. But we are a bit laden when we go there.
    Hook a 1.5 ton trailer and it returns 7km/l at 100km/h.


    I will leave the Sony radio I installed. It has bluetooth, but no CD player. Standard speakers thought. The radio controls on the steering wheel does not work. I have the old head unit should you prefer it. Comes with the car anyway. Easy to intall as all the connectors are still intact.


    I will gladly remove the battery system and slide. Was about R 8000 all in. Will install in my new car.


    I think you need to inspect the car anyway yourself, but you are a bit far off for a quick visit. How do you want to do this?
    Have a friend over to test it?

    Hi Caracal

    Here are the pics. Sorry about some pics at an angle. I tried to rectify

    Saw a small tear starting on the passenger seat.
    The one mark where the ZA sticker is were like that when I bought it and never fixed it.
    The pic of the fender shows a missing grey rubber that I had to remove as the constant diesel spillage of crappy Fuel station guys made this deteriorate.

    Does anyone know what the loading capacity is on the STANDARD roof rails of the PJS ( 2014)

    I have fitted a temporary load basket directly onto the stock black rails and am wondering what the loading could be...
    bearing in mind that there are only 3 point supports on each side direct to the roof.

    Wanting to load 4 Jerry cans, spare wheel and a bit of fire wood !! ( 80+30+30=140kg) or so....


    Thanks

    Well, I can tell you this much, my FIL loaded 4 Jerry cans, wood, and a spare tyre on a Front Runner rack that just straps onto the standard rails.

    After a whole trip through the Namib, he noticed that the backend of the rack was slacking, only to see that the standard rails have bent!

    Needless to say that was too much weight for the standard rails, I would say max 80kg to be on the safe side.

    80 kg. But I stand to be corrected.

    Thanks
    80kg according to the owners manual.

    It’s a bit of a problem. My aluminium roof tray weighs 30kg, giving me 50kg to play with, which isn’t a hell of a lot.

    And when loaded, you can see the load bars being noticeably closer to the roof. I don’t know whether this flexion in the load bars is a flaw or a feature.

    How much can then FR roof rack take that is bolted on the roof, and not on standard rails?

    Thanks... the basket sits along the full length of the rail , so the load will be distributed along the rail, just don't want the supports disappearing into the roof !!!

    Just be careful. The first dip you take might be too much for the rails.

    As others have stated, 4H is safe to use permanently on tar Nico as Super Select is designed to do it and is an added safety aspect. I know it feels weird for us "toppies" who grew up with manual hubs and no difflocks but embrace technology, Which by the way was devloped in 1991 with the launch of the Gen3 Paj if I remember correctly.

    Edit and correction thanks 4E.1991 was Gen2 indeed.

    Thank you all, mightily impressed with the bakkie. Even the Voice Commands thing understand my Boere English.

    Took it to the sandy patch close to the house and it does all the stuff right.
    I find it to be a bit low at the diff. Could see it scraped the middelmannetjie a few places.

    Thinking of doing larger tires. Maybe 265/65 R17 or 265/70 R17. Anyone done this? Your thoughts?
    I know it MIGHT give me another 1cm, but every bit helps.

    First up is tires and the back bumper. The standard towbar assembly is good for a Venter only. WAAAYYY to low.
    Fridge slide already in the planning. Can't go camping without that now can you?

    Then rock sliders soon. The tin they call sidesteps got introduced to sand today. Not gonna fly. Well, the steps are gonna fly if it is not replaced.
    Long run thinking Coil spacers and longer shackles at the back? Anyone done this perhaps?

    But, this bakkie drives well. A tad harder than the PS, but not too shabby.
