Re: RTT an overkill?

I checked the Bundutop on David Talijaart's Patrol during the river trip. Definitely way overbuilt. It is genuinely excellent engineered. I also have an electric type RTT but all my cables and mechanisms are outside subject to dust and water. The Chinas did not think so far on mine. Now the Bundutop...

But I have fiddled enough with my car and I am tires of modifying so I attempted to repair the broken one. I tried loosening the screw but...

Re: My KoolStoof, so oud soos Ek (TD42-Ti GQ 1997)

Thanks guys. Sjoe this year has just been hectic, very little time for Patrollie. Did have some diff issues because of some over enthusiasm in the salt pans last December and some salt got in the diff. :redface: Well some things got hot and caught fire. So after 3 attempts from repairs to a new diff...

Re: My KoolStoof, so oud soos Ek (TD42-Ti GQ 1997)

I drove 9 500 km in December, the good news is the old GQ made it home by itself. :blonde: It was definitely not uneventful. The first 4 500 km was quite relaxing. Lots of good gravel road, outside temperatures was very nice. At one point we were driving between Upington and Pofadder on one of those...
