Why I'm so happy with my decision to own a Patrol

Having recently returned from Moz I'm now happier than ever I own a Patrol. I've done a few trips with the Patrol each towing heavy loads etc. On my Kgalagadi trip in Feb I was able to compare to a Pathfinder. On the open road the Pathy kills me in fuel consumption, doing around 11-12km/l. Whilst th...

Another big thankyou to Tour De Frans

I have had a 3.ltr Patrol for several years and recently it went bang, like so many others. I contacted Peter Du Toit who very kindly gave me all his experience of the same problem and put me in touch with Tour De Frans. My discussion with Frans was immediately successful as he had a low milage 4.2 ...

Re: Bots Zim Zam

Thanks Peter. I looked up Pandamatenga on T4A and it certainly makes sense to use that border post. Will make sure too I have the right reflectors. Mike has contacted me and given me a lot of useful information and a whole lot of threads to read up on. Thanks once again for all your help. Regards. B...

Re: Ironman Suspension

Upgrade done yesterday, and I gained about 60mm in terms of lift. The distance from the bottom of the rim until the bumper is now 820mm... Truck feels huge. :) Ride is a little harder (I was expecting this) but fantastic. A few photographs (as per Tinus request). They're not very good, as the Trol i...

Re: Wild dogs in the Kruger

They breed easily in captivity and reintroduction into reserves is also very successful. So the answer to the riddle, I think, has to do with the pack size: The behaviour of Wildogs are characterised by their reliance on 'helpers'.
