Re: Second Battery System

Re: Second Battery System

Thanks for the advice Ian :thumbup: I will have a good look around for other options. Easy to get carried away Haha. I suppose the easiest would be to accept the loss of space for the pure convenience of having the pre-built box inside the cab but if there is another way that's even better. Haha Yes...

Re: Second Battery System

Good point Ian, hadn't considered that :think: yes I saw some of the guys on the Aussie forums who mounted them under the tray in a tray bolted to the chassis.

Re: Hunters Road 14-18 June 2019

My old man and I are keen on an attempt at the ole hunters road. We have had a few mates that have done it recently and 1 that was turned around by the BDF... I think that maybe the safest route would be to attempt it from the north? Start near kasane doing the chobe first either by drive or by rive...

Re: Hunters Road 14-18 June 2019

I'm keen to take a chance at driving the road, we might get lucky. Being turned around wont be great but in that case i think the idea of a "plan b" is a good one.

Re: Any clever ideas ?

I'm not even sure that this is the result of that noise I heard yet but it seems like it happened quite recently because there is no rust or anything on the bolt... it did go in for wheel alignment and ballancing 2 weeks back but I dont know if they would fiddle with body mounts ??...
