Russ , the shackles are 145mm from center to center. Mc Naughtans in Fairbairn str 35 Parow
vir die knippe.
Nee, die ratio is nog standaard .Lowrange was maar vir swaar vragte.My GVM is gereeld meer
as 8000kg,dit help baie met terug stoot (spaar die clutch)
Die 5de is 4sale.Gaan jy alu gebruik vir jou kappie?

'n Cruiser bakkie is mooi, maar hierdie bakkie is mooier!

Die Aussies ken ook die kuns om die Patrol bakkie regtig mooi te maak.
Patrol fan!

Wat beteken Knippe ? Handles or hinges?

I went to McNaughtons today, saw those handles like the ones you have, man, i wanted them so much, but i just couldn't afford them, so i ended up getting the smaller puch-lock nylon/metal ones that everyone else uses, would have bee so much nicer with those big pull/turn handles though.

Price difference was:

R1090 . 00 for 8 (nylon.metal push button)
R2500. 00 for 8 (big pull/turn handles)

After driving around paarden island looking at marine shops etc etc etc, i ended up finding the hinges i was after at builders warehouse, can you believe it!

R440. 00 for 10 (Alu hinges large)

Werf, i take it you tow a Trailer alot , because 8 ton GVM seems alot to be just your vehicle ?
Who did your reduction gears in your transfer case , or are you running a crawler box (second small transfer box) with its own shifter?

Werf my Canopy is made like this:

50x50 aluminium square tube frame (with extra roof ribs for strength)
3mm tread plate side doors, folded back on itself for strength and shape
3mm Marine grade smooth alu sheet bent to round profile for the edging (top - to make it nice and round and look cool, probably not as big as yours though)
three quarter rear door- flip up
2 small hatches front -flip up
2 big hatches rear - 1 flip up, 1 flip down
No cupboards but adaptable for later
No glass or windows, but i will have option of grid for the dog to get air

Please let me know if i should add something else, or be careful of something, it might help me, thanks!

Russ.Sorry dit is GCM .My 14000 Champ weeg so 3240kg met net diesel en my in.Ek sleep gereeld n 4t roller of teer.Ek het die transfer gears uit Aus gekry via Mike Swann Nizani Auto in Pretoria ook die voorste LSD kom van hom af.Die lowrange is baie laag , jy kan in 5de low
wegtrek.

Jy moet fotos oplaai dat ek kan sien wat jy doen of ek moet maar eendag gou kom loer.
Russ, my canapy split in twee 1/3 kan jy as n crew cab gebruik.Die ander 2/3 kan afhaal, dit is die kombuis en pakplek.Ons slaap binne,dit is te hoog vir n rooftop tent,die op en af klim werk nie saam metdie GOUT nie. Nou weet jy hoekom daar vensters is .Jy moet kyk na n vent of n flap vir positive druk dit help die stof.

Ons praat weer
