    Sorry for the late reply thing have been really flat out. Yeah LPG gas converts take up some room.. I still haven't finished it all I need is a battery and some wire. Thing have been pretty flat out.

    Ok so I have fitted a battery tray for the second battery system wasn't an easy job had to move the turbo hoes a little and will have to move a ac condenser down a little still. Nothing ever just bolts up... Still need to buy a isolator and second battery.

    Who uses vks737

    This is really good to see. I'm pretty sold on the idea I ordered a new battery tray to set up a second battery and I can run the HF off.

    So the lifted leaf springs have been put on the back foot for now as my father is going to give me his old HF Codan 8528 so I'm going to set my self up for VKS737 when I'm doing bigger trips as I would like to start going away a bit more. So I ordered a second battery tray to set up duel battery...

    Who uses vks737

    Hi all just wondering who uses vks737? My Father got him self a new codan unsure of what model and he told me I can have his old codan 8528 with the manual tap aerial. So I'm looking at installing it into my ute but it got me thinking how many people are still using this type of communication...

    Are all leaf springs equal?

    The tapered leaf springs are a great idea but I don't know where I could get them from in SA and for my ute. I have been looking hard at EFS and Dobinson as they do a 35mm leaf springs for my ute and I have torsion bars in the front that I only want to lift by 30mm to keep a good cv angle.

    Are all leaf springs equal?

    So are all leaf springs equal? If not what do you look for when buying leaf springs? I have a Mazda bravo and have changed my shocks over now I'm looking around at leaf springs and I'm trying to work out what's the pros and cons of each company. Thanks Pete.

    Little bit of a up date. I have ordered my shocks they are pedders foam cell shocks. I'm going to be buying some leaf springs a little later when I can afford them and just winding up the fount torsion bars.

    Gas vs Foam cell in a ipfs

    I have been looking around to find out is foam cell shocks going to be to ruff on a ipfs ute. I know they do well on a 100 serious Land Cruiser and a GQ Patrol fathers and brother in laws vehicles but they are heavy coil sprung live axle 4x4s. The shocks I'm looking at are Pedders Track Rider...
