A BIG BIG thanx to Tinus, Graham, G-man, Peter Connan and the people at Voetspore mega world.

I fitted a full OME heavy duty suspension. Caster correction kit, swaybar extention brackets, 17 inch 4.8 GRX mags, 2nd hand KM2 33's. Mags done with Follotec and PC belly plate and pumpkin cover.

This is the results.

Hi,
Any reason you did not fit EFS? cheaper, longer guarantee/warrantee softer ride!
I have 315 70 16 and looks awesome!
Enjoy the ride!

James i have heard some good and bad reports on efs ....iam not knocking any product ....i have 3 inch iron man in my car very happy with it ....i think that ome has come a long way with good service back up .....probably also the retailer can make a difference in the final price but let joshua give you his reason for going that route :mytwocents:

Thanx for the compliments Tinus and Peter.

James, I guys it comes down to personal preference. I have had OME before and its great for me. I was not willing to try something I dont have experience to safe R4k, the difference was not worth the risk For me. I have a diesel. Wider tyres robs power and increase feul consumption. The 285/70/17 is a good balance for me. Again. Personal preference.

She handles like a BMW and looks like the Hulk :layrubber: freaken Awsome. :rolling:

And then to top it off. Francois from Voetspore gave me his Dobi Nissan spare wheel cover that he got on the cape to cairo trip. They had the Patrols serviced at Dobi nissan in Kenya.

Josh, jou Patrol lyk awesome man!! Dis altyd moeilik om veranderinge aan n voetuig te doen en om n goeie belans te hou sonder om dinge te oor doen.

Jy het alles net mooi reg gekry!

Was lekker om jou ook te ontmoet en hom in lewende lywe te sien
