Hi Chris,

What bulbar is fitted to your trol?

I made an error: I have a Tabor (8000 lbs) winch on mine.

Myself and my wife just completed a 2 week tour of Botswana. We encountered an Isuzu KB stuck in the Kwai river between Kwai river campsite and Mogothlong on the Mababe road. The vehicle was driven by a bunch of raw Earopeans and they drowned it halfway through. The engine sucked water and they repeatedly tried to restart the engine in the water. It was completely wasted. After pulling them out we learned they even collected some fish in the car from the river. The Tabor actually pulled them out without being snatch-blocked (they were 15m or so into the river) and it pulled a bakkie with water and luggage out of the river. Impressive, however, I am budgeting for a Warn Zeon 12000 lbs.

Ha Ha Ian,

Tinus only drives on tar so he has never used his winch. Off road the diesels are king except for the dunes, :rolling: :rolling: :rolling:
