Re: Photo bucket plus 500

Yep, all over all the forums I follow, I reckon they will give in and back pedal but the damage is done. Thing is, PB has often been bordering on unusable with the ads it runs and is very resource heavy. Good riddance. Pity about all the broken forums throughout the world. Mind you, the rate forums ...

Cheers, I have got it fixed. Rebuilt both ends and new knobby for pitman arm. Getting pitman arm off was hardest, had to take sterring box out and hit it with a fbh. Much nicer to drive in the paddocks now.

Re: HZJ105 from AU

I did before we bought our new vehicle, then I thought it's essentially an 80 series with no turbo and a weaker gearbox so would need money spent on it to be suitable for me so ditched the idea. Look good in gxl spec too.

LN106 Steering play

My Hilux has an epic amount of play in the steering and it is mostly coming from the link arm. As I am using it I have not pulled it apart but what do i need to fix it? It looks like there is a part pressed into the pitman arm - that piece is moving in the arm. Do i need a new pitman to get the ball...

Re: Good photoshopper wanted

I was going to do extra cab and had the c pillars lines up but then I took the easy option as the roof at the c pillar was narrower than the b and was going to be more work so I just cut straight down the window line on the swb cab.

Thanks Steve,Keith,twodiffs, I have worked out where green hut and tailing tracks are again, and the rest I am familiar with, time to make the paint a bit duller.

I have never done liverpool Bills, what sort of grade track is that and how overgrown is it?

Waikaia Bush Road / Old man range

Last weekend after going on one of our longest off road trips (140km off road) we got one hell of a surprise to see a digger on the Old Man Range doing work on the track. For those that know this road it's very rough with deep water holes which often lead to vehicle recoveries, none more dramatic th...

He won't need rated hooks or another vehicle. It's a track suitable for a standard factory vehicle. Just go when the river is running clear and low which is most of the time. Enter the water crossing slowly and there will be no trouble. Other option is to wait at the start for another vehicle to com...

Could you adapt a fox wing type to fold from the back and round the side?
What model Engel did you get? We are looking at fridges at the moment, dometic/waeco seem to be hard to beat price wise with smiths city farmlands discount.

You probably know this but you will need 16 in rims to clear the callipers or a large offset white spoke or grind the outside of the calliper down.

The stubs are the same , the bigger brakes have a larger disc and calliper but the mounting holes are the same.

Let me know what the upgrade is like, I have a jtop set in the shed as well and have never got round to it.

Re: 2017 Mainland Challenge Rules?

Sure is, that's why you always set a course easier than you think, as soon as you add a stop watch a medium course becomes hard due to red mist!! We did have one vehicle roll onto its side through driver error but the only way that wouldn't have happened would be if he stayed in bed!!

Discussion ongoing I think, debating if Clubman should be non cage so beginners can have a crack, but then the courses need to be set very safe so no chance of rolls but its not really winch challenge then, more just a mudplug. That's a bit of a generalisation right there - a 'entry level' winch ch...
