Re: how do people turn off and on a digital speedo

:D Is that why Ranger, Hilux and Triton were 3 of the top 5 sales lately? All diesel... if it wasn’t for soot particles Diesel is certainly the way to go, unfortunately they are sooty so get hamstrung with emissions gear. Economy and driveability is unbeatable! And your precious petrol already has t...

Re: Lake Coleridge & Wilberforce River

Glenthorne seem to be the main access. Fanghill is said to be a right old dump of a hut but some decent canpsites not far away.

Enjoy the south.

Re: surpintine

I mark where we turn going to these places and the closest one I have seems to be on the junction of deep creek road & Linnburn Runs Road. Yes that’s coming from the old Dunstan trail end or Pataeroa / Paerau end, the road from millers flat is the lake Onslow road that turns into deep creek road.

Re: surpintine

There is one deep swift crossing which I suspect will be impassable around lake Onslow before the Serpentine turnoff. I won’t say you won’t get through as you may well do but just a heads up.

See screenshot below.

Re: Serpentine

Its boggy in places, if you can't see the bottom of some of the waterholes perhaps best avoid them - they have decent ruts in the bottom. Id go through on my own cautiously but then again I know the track.

Re: surpintine

Yes its a local track, and its Serpentine :) . There are 3 was to get to it, but the one from Millers Flat is a bit rougher, probably pay to take a 2nd vehicle.

Re: Porsche Off -- A Cayenne Offroad Project

Those with late model pajeros with no chassis use the factory side step mounting spots for rock sliders and they seem strong enough as the frame structure is very solid at that point.

90000 is a major service with all the oils but I think $2100 is still a complete rip!! I’ll have a look in my service book today and see when the belt is recommended from factory.

Re: Off road trailer build with patrol wheels...stub axles??

What size tyres on the patrol? If they are 33’s then the trailer will be huge. I built a camper and was going to run 33’s in it to save carrying a spare but it was just going to be to high to be sensible to get in and out of and still tow nice. So I stuck some 225/75/16 off a Hilux on it, I think th...
