Re: Patrol Y61 discontinued

No, I know what the 70 series is. I was just under the impression that somewhere along the line they had made it IFS but clearly I am mistaken then.

Re: Spare Wheel Cover

I use a short tow bar extender when I fit the Thule bike carrier so that the bikes clear the spare wheel. And yes, I realise it decreases the departure angle & may be less safe when hauling the Titanic around, but this thread is not about either of those topics... Thanks Christo. I did consider tha...

Re: Patrol Y61 discontinued

I thought that the 70 series Land Cruisers have had independent front suspensions for quite a few years already and only the rear is still a solid axle and leaf sprung at that?

Re: Patrol Y61 discontinued

I reckon my 4.8 may well outlast me. I bought it in June 2013 - going on 5 years now - and its only got 46k km on it now. If its good for 500k km, at this rate it'll still be running 50 years from now...by which I time I will have long since run out of road. I really did but it thinking it will be m...

For anybody who is interested I have a immaculate 60th anniversary wheel cover for sale. Not faded at all and only used once. Will fit on a 33 inch wheel.
Grant, pic and price?

Re: Front Runner Water Tank behind Rear Seats - GU

Weet jy Tinus - the lower you can keep your centre of gravity, the better. There's a long story about my wife driving a 4wd with a loaded roofrack and how we nearly came to grief. The only heavy stuff I'll put on top is extra fuel jerries and a second spare wheel. I see the Aussies make an 85l bladd...

Re: Spare Wheel Cover

Thank you Carel. I did enquire but a plain black one with the word "PATROL" in silver lettering per the OEM one is a bit more than R1.5k - which seems a bit much for me. I think I may just order a plain generic black one off one of the other links for about R500. Probably makes more sense.
