So far in the years I've been involved with Patrols I have never heard of anyone blowing up a transfer or gearbox, or shearing a sideshaft.
Ask Mnr Lotz... he knows how :rolling:

Welkom Ettiene.

Ek stem saam met Alex Roux oor voor diff lock. Ek het een in my Patrol, een in my Pathfinder en het ook destyds in my Terrano 'n voor LS Diff ingesit.

Gaan kyk by Lokka.com, hulle pryse is baaaaaie bekostigbaar. Myne se aankoop prys was onder R4000, maar die Rand was toe 13 teen een dollar. Maar dan kom installasie (sowat 2 tot 3 uur), hanteer koste, 20% invoerbelaating en 15% VAT by...

Welcome Welcome, don't feel bad I am also a sout peel! (foot in both camps 2 patrols and too many Land Rovers :think:) You will find that I am the butt of all the land rover jokes and Chris is the one that takes it for the Fords, we both have very thick skins :rolling: :rolling:

Ian, I learnt VERY quickly that if you get a Land Rover, you
1 - Pay the money
2 - Develop the thick skin
3 - Buy the hand cleaner
4 - Buy the oil
5 - Buy the spanners.

In that order... :blonde:

Welcome to the forum!

I recently bought my 6 yr old patrol and it has Takla Cantech seat covers on. I assume they were fitted from new as the seats underneath look perfect. The covers fit well and are in excellent condition given their assumed age.

Those Stone Hill covers also look great - I like the leather inserts on the high-wear areas.
Cheers, Gareth
