Re: 15" or 16"

Depends how wide you want you're tyres. If you go 16", you can run 285/75/16 which is around 33x11.50x16. If you go 15" then you are pretty much committed to 12.5" wide tyres. Unless you can get some 33x10.50x15, which are blimin hard to come by at an affordable prcie (unless they're ...

Re: Public GPS track databases

Great resource, I can't see 'muppets' shelling out the $100 odd bucks to find some tracks tbh. Also a lot of the tracks on these sites are not super local to anywhere... I know here in Christchurch, we have a lot of 'Waimak Warriors' but you don't ever really hear of them making the journey to tackl...

Re: Disco 1 Front recovery eyes

Yea the panhard mount is a bit of a pain, but it can be easily worked around. I had toyed with the idea of doing shackle holes rather than hooks on the last one and I wish I had. The equaliser strap would be great, I've been meaning to get one made up for a while now haha. And yes, it sure adds up!

Re: Pursuit of low mount winch happiness

I believe industrial welding suppliers are generally about the cheapest place (local). I know that's where Dad got his 50mm2 cable from (can't remember which place sorry, can look into if you're interested). Otherwise I've heard of people importing it :roll:

Awesome! Very excited for this one! Have just purchased an EVO winch myself... had been toying with the idea of running a Goodwinch Turbo Box controller on it, which gives 24v while winching in, effectively doubling your line speed (I think). I wasn't sure how the Runva motor was going to cope with ...

Highly recommend purchasing from them. If you have the time, the same MAF is available somewhere on aliexpress for around $8...

Hi all,
Just wondering if anyone knows of any mud plug style events coming up, preferably close to Chch?
Would like to get a wee bit more fun out of the truck before I decide what to do with it :roll:

I will get some once the weather has cleared and isn't dark! I have someone potentially interested already, they are very rough but a sand back and paint would tidy them up... they are chassis mount to suit a 2" bodylift
