2.5 Ton Trailer Hire

Hi Guys,

Does anyone know of a place in the Durban / KZN area that I can hire a 2.5ton break-neck trailer with hand winch from to load a GU patrol?

Thanks,

Gary.

Re: Sojo Auotmotive....... the TD42 one stop shop

Re: GU Y61 Rear Windows Mod?

Hi guys. I am also keen to try something similar and have been looking at options for a while now. I like the idea of the steel "window" in your pics, particularly for security and durability etc. I am building a drawer system that will be quite tall and a lot of the useful space between the drawer ...

HI All,

This vehicle is no longer for sale as a recent twist of events has resulted in me having to keep it.

I am trying to find a way to deal with the disappointment!

Re: 4.8L spark plugs

Hi Guys, An update to this post: I have just changed all 6 plugs on my 4.8GRX for NGK Iridiums (ILFR6T-11 as per NGK technical guys in Jhb). The process took me 2 hours exactly, including removal of intake manifold etc, but I obviously did something wrong as there is a horrible miss now when the eng...
