Finally brought her home...

Post by Africa_Trekker » 22 Oct 2018 22:32

So I bought a ‘Trol about 3 weeks ago in Pretoria for a really great price. A 4.8GRX. Since I live in Windhoek I had some family take care of a few things for me such as a new suspension (OME), windshield, datadot, etc. I flew to Pretoria a week ago today, fitted an ARB bumper on Tuesday and handled all the export paperwork on Wednesday and Thursday. Drove through on Saturday and finalized registration in Namibia today. There’s a new Patrol in Namibia tonight...and one incredibly happy owner!

PS: My son dubbed it the “Paw Patrol”
