Re: Front Bumper en Laaistel

Airbags are triggered by acceleration sensors.

Thus the fitting of an aftermarket bumper does not cause them not to work.

The issue is that, if your bul-bar is significantly stronger than the factory bumper, you lose the "crumple zones". What happens then is that, should you hit something, the car de-celerates significantly faster than a standard one.

The result of this is that the airbags may trigger much more easily (or could I say in a much smaller accident) than they normally would.

As a result, the repair cost of a miner fender-bender might significantly increase due to the cost of replacing the airbags.

Re: 17-21 Maart 2017 DUINE TRIP

Die klink vreeslik lekker.
Sit my maar ook op die lysie. Ek belowe niks, mens weet nooit watse vars moeilikheid daai tyd kan opduik nie.
Klink my ek moet budget vir so 1600km of hoe?

Ek wil ook hoor of dit reg is as ek my vriend met sy hilux nooi? :pray:

Hi Tijmen

Vanaf Pretoria, is dit in die orde van 1600 heen en weer.
Onthou net jy gaan heelwat brandstof op die duine roetes self ook uitry waarvoor mens moet begroot.

Re: Patrol Spotting

Tijmen, wees asb versigtig met enige advertensies en moet geen depositos van enige aard oorbetaal nie.
Daar is baie scammers daar buite en daai prys lyk bietjie laag.

Re: GQ Bonnet Gas Struts

Net een tip, jou shocks is inderste bo. Daai seel waar die shaft uit kom moet in die olie wees anders gaan hulle nie lank hou nie

Nice write-up (wif picktjurs) available here .

Two things I learnt:
1. The "rod down" position ensures that the oil dampens the movement when the strut nears the end of its extension. If mounted the other way around, the struts will not benefit from this damping and may be damaged as a result.
2. Struts should preferably be mounted no more than 60 degrees off vertical to ensure that the oil remains in contact with the seal. Because our bonnets are very near to horisontal, it's important to take your Patrol out for a vigorous 4x4 session to thoroughly lubricate the seal as often as you possibly can :thumbup:
