Re: Patrol 4.8 2005 model - Rear Wheel caps

I has some made by a guy in PTA (R150 each), looked the part but I lost one quite soon. We can try them but I would suggest adding some support on the inside to keep them tensioned on the nuts. Also his delivery of the covers was slow, had to keep on bugging him, and that is the reason I haven't men...

Re: The only thing I hate about my Patrol

Coincidentally I feel the same! It’s the most pathetic cup holder know to the automotive industry. Today after being fed up with the cup holders I embarked on designing a prototype.

Re: Cruise control

I have a aftermarket system on a 4.8 GL manual and it works well, I'm not 100% sure but if my memory serves me the 4.8 Auto is fly by wire throttle and thus don't think it is that easy to get it from a scrapyard and install.

Re: 35" tyres on a GU

I'm sure I have a 2 inch lift and with new tires - 285/75 r 16 I found that the tires do catch on front mudflaps when turning - cant recall if it is the inside or outside of the tire rubbing - but who needs mudflaps.
