Re: Importing a defender from the UK

Chat with the guys at Stag 4X4, they import British vehicles for customers at what seemed like a very good price from memory :)

Near NEW Nankang Mudstars

Hi guys,
Unfortunately I have to move these tyres on, absolutely loved the performance but moving on to bigger things.
They're a 32x11.5x15 with under 1000kms
Thanks

It's not that I haven't wanted to, but that I've been so unsure about the trucks future, that I felt whatever I'd write one day, would change the next. So, catch up time. Updat...

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!

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:
