Re: New member Iveco 4x4

Welcome :) In my biased opinion the off roading gets better the further south you go :) Otago and the West Coast of the South Island both offer a lot of great 4wd tracks. With the right advice and care some of the Canterbury braided river beds are also great 4wd highways that offer a unique NZ off-r...

Re: Suzuki SusyQ on Big River trail Reefton

Only other pic I took. Had American visitors in the back so kind of sucked to see the wreckage amongst the greenery. Would gladly contribute $100 to anyone or group that can recover it out of there and dispose of appropriately. http://i999.photobucket.com/albums/af116/jasonmarsden/Random/D5A5FB58-1E...

Suzuki SusyQ on Big River trail Reefton

Re: JK 2009 Tow Hooks

Whilst it might seem a good idea to try and keep the stock bumper you are better off ditching it for an ARB or similar that is airbag compliant and comes with recovery points. You can try the U.S. spec factory front hooks that come up through the bumper but these are not 10,000lb, only 5000 from mem...

Re: Co2 regulator

I use a CO2 tank. Great for filling tyres and running air tools. Brought in a high flow regulator from Powertank in the States and just swapped the stem nut over to match NZ CO2 tank thread. Normal regulators will freeze up under the flow needed. CO2 much better than compressed air or Notrogen as it...

Re: 4WD CLUBS?

Hi
Here are a few more in Christchurch
http://www.4wd.org.nz/Member_Clubs.htm

I agree definately a good idea to check a few out, attend a meeting and get a feel how they operate, types of runs etc.

I've been a member of CR4WD for a few years now and enjoy it immensely.

Re: Jk body wobble

Lots of lift options but Old Man Emu do a nice tuned package set up for your rig dependent on body type, bars etc. don't be tempted to go for their heavy duty springs unless you are so heavy as to need them as this will just result in a stiff three inch lift. I've been running OME for a few years no...

Anti sway bars disconnected? Back one should never need disconnecting. Other than that maybe check shocks.

Have you thought about a CO2 setup? I have a 4.5kg tank that gets filled with liquid CO2 so heaps of gas volume at constant pressure 700-800psi. Using a Powertank high volume regulator.
