daar was nog n thread oor die roete gewees.... het dit verdwyn? kan dit nie kry nie... :think:


btw. van die (4x4community) ouens wat die roete gery het, is nie oortuig dat meer as 'n graad 3 roete is nie...
Teen R300... :surprised:

"They do recommend +- 31 tyres and some bodyclearance."
As they say: one mans grade 3 is another mans grade 5... :lol:

Was n week of twee terug daar saam met Sam (aka Trowalts) en bietjie met die eienaar gesels. Roete is blykbaar nie te rof nie, maar aangesien dit n nuwe roete is, is die plantegroei nog effens wild. So mens moet of geduldig wees en 'n paar clippers pak om die pad oop te maak, of mens moet tevrede wees met 'n paar 'bos strepe'. :rolling:
