Grabouw Scenic 4x4 Trail

Went and done Grabouw 4x4 Trail on Saturday morning. We were blessed with amazing weather and an incredibly scenic drive.

Re: JTECs Patrol Progression

Which is why, on our roads, which are cambered to the left, the car pulls left. Drive it on the right, and it should pull to the right. No wheel alignment shop w...
