I promised myself this trip, this year, then I went and cut the front end of the Sani off with not enough budget :rolleyes: :confused: ..

Calculations put me at around R40K with tires and shocks to complete and be ready for this trip.

We have just this week started our new Solar and LPGas business, so we are hoping that in a big way to make this.

Will be watching this thread, but also don't want to be taking a vehicle onto a trip like this that is even slightly iffie as it is now with shock mounts that have now twice ripped off the chassis and even broken off.

And then Tires, tires, tires.... My LTX's are not going to cut it.
