nice video..... Its good to see a 4.2 diesel in the sand !!

What bonnet scoop do you have on there? Looks like quite a big aperture for airflow onto the intercooler

Ricster, ja nice and big scoop, I bought the van with it on. I can take a picture of the intercooler and fan under the hood if you want to see?
She went well in the sand, bit to heavy for the waai sand kant. :woo:
