Still got those arb's in the shed?


Got one,well it's actually a howat locker which requires air to lock and unlock, it's also all set up with rear steer, I reckon your Hilux needs rear steer now.
SWB V6 Paj with one or two mods ;)

That last post was meant to be a video. Think it links to the vid if you click on it. I wrote another post before that but accidentally deleted it!

Have been doing a bit of WOF stuff. All the ball joints were flogged as the steering dampener was twisting the drag link. Have straightened it up a bit so will see how it goes now.

Also trimmed one of the guards for the 37s. Looking good now and not rubbing but I think I'll take off another 10mm for good measure and adding the rubber flare back on will take up a few mm.

Yes they do at full flex but only just and its smooth there so will just polish the body rather than hurt the tyres

Got out for a bit of a drive today. Note to self, don't let old mate Tony drive. Just uploading some videos.

Sold the kumhos and got some bighorns with internal bead locks. Very happy with them. Got them 2nd hand but they still had the nipples on them.

Truck is going pretty well.

went to Haast with a few from the shotover club on the weekend. Was a good weekend in the mud. Truck went well. Love the crawlers go great aired down, keen to give them a bit more of a work out on the rocks sometime. Alternator died which was a bit of a pain. Big had to turn around a few times to give me a winch after the battery started to die a bit.

Mounted some light bars last week haven't given them a good workout in the dark yet.

WOF runs out in a week. Might be time for some more maintenance. New rear axles and seals ready to go in. Fix alt and a few oil leaks.... then to mound the rear winch. more to come....

A few pics from the weekend. And link to the lot http://s958.photobucket.com/user/petemcc_2010/library/
