Re: TIPTRONIC IGNORANCE

It is not possible to start an automatic vehicle by towing it in gear. It is possible to tow it, though: place the transfer box in neutral and then the transmission is isolated from the rest of the drivetrain.

Re: TIPTRONIC IGNORANCE

Hello Clags Welcome to the site. Well done on your Patrol. It won't break and leave you stranded. Just look after it and don't murder it. :oldtimer: . If you are planning on doing serious towing, get either OME heavy duty coils and shocks at the back, or similar TJM XGS coils and shocks. This will a...

Re: TIPTRONIC IGNORANCE

Just keep in mind some late model transfer boxes have an oil pump driven by the input shaft similar like the auto boxes and therefore you can’t tow it for long distances even if you put it into nutral. The box will run with no oil feed and you could end up with huge repair cost. Rather disconnect th...

Re: Fuel consumption experiment

Glags, your death wobble is most likely and unbalanced wheel, or panhard rod bush. Get teh wheels balanced properly -I prefer the finger adapter and not the cone.

Re: 4.8 grx for sale

Dear Roelf I'm thinking of the OME kit on my 2004 - 4.8 Patrol GRX, but it seems crazy to go with the standard 265/75 R16s. Would really appreciate your advice. The tyre dealership advise me not to increase diameter of overall tyre with more than 2.5%, but so many Patrol owners seem happy with much...
