    Looks good! When are you getting bigger tyres? I'm sure that bakkie will look even better with slightly bigger tyres!

    it was lekker, will definately go again, after the holidays! the trail consists of 2 sections:

    1) the sand trail: it is very fun, there are a few chalenging obstacles, the 1st obstacle you get to looks impossible, it is a 30* sand hill, no run up! then you get the longdrop , it is what it says! once you have done the longdrop you get the riverbed, rock/sand mix. possible vehicle damage if not done properly. all in all the sand trail is a well worth while trail.

    2) the rock trail is still to be challenged!
    from what the farmer said, it is ver scenic and your vehicle should be slightly higher than standard.

    I reckon the diesel will be better suited to bigger tyres than the petrol, so maybe it's still worth a further look.

    Hey Jono,

    Your Isooz looks nice, I agree, after the chip fitment, try to get a set of 265/70/16 just as a try out and see what the "power loss" will be like. Maybe get in contact with some of the guys from IOC down in your area, there might be someone who can assist with the tyre try outs.
