Re: Brake light switch: OEM only or is there an aftermarket option

Ok so I McGuyvered the aftermarket switch to fit the plug and it's working. Brake lights and stuck gear shifter fixed. So my Patrol is now .009% Kia/Ford

So same...

Buying online from Australia

Re: Caterpillar tracks

A friend of mine had (had, as in deceased. shot and poisoned. long story) a tracked vehicle in northern Moz. Looked like a scaled down version of those arctic articulated things. Used in a very sandy area as well as the low tide hard beaches. Theoretically great but he battled to keep the rubber tra...
