I invested in a bunch of Peter Connan steel underwear for the 'Trol.

Finished painting them on the weekend, but have not had a chance to fit them. I did, however, take a snap of the diff protector yesterday afternoon (excuse the dirty diff).

Most of the diff-protectors I've seen fitted are yellow. I thought I'd be a little different and go for red...

Peter - thanks a stack - they are awesome...

PS: (Have I ever mentioned how much I love Hammerite - it is awesome paint).

Put some 33" muddies on yesterday for the weekend's Lesotho trip - and the river trip next week... For the first time since I've had the truck, the wheels look big enough. :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

Very nice Ian, yes 33" is the right size.....but lately I am leaning more towards 35" as the 33" starts to look a bit small again for me :think:

255/55r19 AT must say I am very happy so far with them, they are the latest tred pattern, and very quiet on the road with no vibrations
