Awesome, Thanks. No rush though. If I were to share a link to my vehicle on FB for example I just wanted it to look right.

Thanks for the Reply Args. As much as I wanted a JK it just wasn't to be.

Picked up a 2012 Prado GX. However primarily being the wife's vehicle it will open up the 2 door jeep option for myself, eventually.

hey 1mak, could I get a Ssangyong forum? I know it isn't popular at all lol. But there is only 1 Australian forum who can't seem to install anti spam on their phpbb forum, and have such have blocked popular emails like outlook from being able to register and don't reply to messages.

So if you could et me up, I can keep all my data and fixes here.

Faulty combination switch, not much you can do to repair, it's just one of those items you replace.

Every vehicle will have issues, I was given a hard time for my jerry from the toyota crew, however they couldn't believe how good it was once they drove it. (I so miss that car).

The key is don't just keep doing mods, do the maintainance and repairs before they cause more issues. What good is a bunch of mods if the car is unreliable.

I can't think what a winding noise would sound like, wheel bearings maybe. Pads may have glazed over?were the rotors machined or replaced?

I like my VMS, a little slow at times and hard to view when in direct sunlight. However on road navigation is nice. Touch screen is not overly sensitive. For the price you pay it's worthwhile. Others I know say the hema app is the go.

personally i hate split rims. I dont like stipping them done and messing about with tubes. However the 7.50r16 size he refers to is great along with 225/75r16 or 235/85r16 in the tubeless.

Have you seen the state forest / np utes running up the beach with a spray rig on the back AT's and not getting stuck? Says a lot.

pictures arn't showing but to destroy two gearboxes in quick succesion is ridiculous. The only thing that could damage the box that badly would be prolonged use of the wrong gear which isn't likely. I would say these reco boxes have been rebuit with the wrong tolerances or incorrect tourqe applied to fastners. Hiluxes arn't known for weak gearboxes, i think they are ripping you off to tbh. Hard to prove though, i wouldn't be using that supplier ever again for anything.

seems like bs to me. Both gearboxes from the same supplier? 30" muddies so what 30x9.50R15's? thats a tiny tyre and should cause no strain at all.

i would be getting the auto done, they need servicing just as much as ever. they are basically the same as older units and you dont want the valve body etc getting restricted with muck or abrasion happening due to contaminates. By gearbox do you mean transfer? If so they are a bit more resistant to wear and tear but should be a fairly straight forward drain and refill scenario, though i have little experience with jeeps.

so i jumped in and done the cut and followed the valley  along the lower most part where the bumper flares down. Whilst there i had the nudge bar blasted and powder coated black.

I purchased a new 14" light bar from gemtek lighting $60 cheap but has genuine phillips lumileds puts out as much light as the cheap no name 22" i had previously. I mounted it to the bar itself freeing up the spot light tabs.  I used one tab for my uhf aerial the other i may use for a second aerial or a sand flag when needed.

Overall pretty happy and no more tyre scrubbing which is great.

The biggest pain was during the replacement the outer CV separated from the shaft ( I did the inner), i didn't realise until i was backing out the shed when i heard some solid clicking. Pulled the shaft out again and had to file between the splines to get the joint back on the shaft (that sucked big time). 

The o'rings are in and the motor degreased and no signs of leaks yet. I think it is about time i did the valve cover gaskets and spark plug tube seals as well, so they are now on the to-do list as i think they may be contributing to the leak but wont know for sure until i do a few more k's.

Near stock diesels generally 10-12k , 3.8 petrol around the same maybe a bit cheaper and the 3.5 i have seen anywhere between 5 & 10k i paid 10k for my 3.5 stock early 2016 from a dealer. Quite cheap if you by privately. I saw a real nice 3.5 go the other day for 4k and it was real tidy.
