I weighed my 4.2td bakkie recently.
2800kg incl 90 litres fuel, trallies, front and rear steel bumpers.

I have a feeling that i may have been slightly overloaded recently on a trip back from Hoedspruit as i was towing a 5m car trailer with 6 x 4.5m double thickness railway sleepers on the trailer, and 4 x 2.2m sleepers in the load bed.
Apart from a 2nd gear crawl up Magoebaskloof pass, the bakkie handled it very well :thumbup:

The patrol can legally tow 2500kg. Which is more than the Cruiser 79, 78, 76, and Prado. Yet most have engines far more powerful than the TD42

Had work done on iNyathi at Supa Quick recently -- Before my Patrol there was a Croozer bakkie d/cab with canopy, drawers, roof rack, rt tent and all his camping stuff it appeared. The lift [hoist?] took the Cruizer 76 up with ease.
On goes iNyathi [drawers (empty) recovery kit, roof top tent [80 Kg] 40 litre in the water tank - And the lift could not lift iNyathi
Had to wait for the heavy duty lift where a 2 tonne Kia bakkie was on, This lift could could only g up 1,5 meter with iNyathi [Jaaaaaaa, ek het uitgeklim voor die tyd :lol: :lol: ]

Tijmen had his GQ on a weigh bridge the other day.

Roof rack with spare wheel, RTT and shower enclosure, and presumably his fridge and drawer system installed, winch, 1/2 a bull bar on the front and bash plates but with standard rear bumper and tinfoil side steps, as well as 1/4 tank diesel and driver on board: 2980kg.

Axle masses were 1420 and 1560 respectively.

Licensed GVM is only 2900kg...

A while back I had the Patrol with the explorer hooked up over the weighbridge at work. It was in full overlanding kit with empty water tanks.
