    A dummy trying to understand off set .

    Re: legalities, in most states you can only legally increase the wheel track by a maximum of 50mm*. Eg. going from a stock +55 offset wheel, the most you can decrease offset (and thereby increase track) by on each wheel is 25mm so that means +30 offset wheel. Depends on how important having a...

    Look up your GVM: (appears to be: 3180kg) That's the most your vehicle is allowed to weigh by law. Now drive to the nearest tip/weighbridge and find out how much it weighs. Subtract that from your GVM. That's your payload.

    PX Ranger low beam is hopeless. What's the fix?

    Agree, the oem Ranger headlights are pathetic - at least high beam is easily fixed with a decent bar or spotties. I'll be interested to hear what you decide John U might also try the globe upgrades at some point.

    Triton MR aka Grumblebee

    Canopy looks good, it really suits the profile of the Triton :) Re: Grunt tailgate seal kit: I have a Ranger + canopy with no tub liner (so your mileage may vary...) and installed the kit, which I'd describe as "OK" at best. It will probably help a bit, but I wouldn't expect it to completely...

    Ford Ranger real world fuel economy

    Yep, exactly. Putting the ACTUAL value of your tyre circumference in will yield a fault code. I basically just got to the "correct" value by trial and error so that my speedo is -2% (eg. 98km/h actual @ 100km/h speedo) for 265/70R17. I can look that up up if it's helpful. Confirmed by 1200km...

    President Trump

    The problem as I see it is that every single issue becomes a partisan one - people don't seem to be able to meet in the middle whatsoever. Blame whoever you like, but the polarised and divided views on every news piece and culture wars are part of (the whole?) problem. It's patently obvious (to...

    Ford Service complete JOKE

    You can get the full featured trial version of Forscan for free for 60 days so you'll just need a Windows laptop with Bluetooth and an OBD adaptor. I used this one in my Ranger PX3 and it works flawlessly: also good for making dashboards for...

    Wonnangatta Couple from Drouin ??

    One of Ivan's victims says to him as they walk into the forest together: "geez it's a bit creepy here isn't it?". Ivan responds: "how do you think I feel - I have to walk out of here all on my own!"

    Installing Roadsafe front recovery points on a 2012 BT-50 with an ARB Deluxe Bullbar

    Sorry for the late reply. I couldn't get a good photo, but it appears that the wires are still attached on the inboard side.

    Hi @hockayak it's referred to by ARB as their "Internal Support". The Rhino Rack page for their accessories to fit: This will give you an idea of how it all fits together:

    G63 roll over

    I'd have one in a heartbeat too, except mine would strictly be a shiny mall crawler. Because there's no way I would take it out on the tracks and be subject to the humiliation and scrutiny if I got it stuck or rolled it heh ;)

    G63 roll over

    Here are the other pics from the Instagram account. You'd expect to see some sort of under body protection on a vehicle of that spec? Thankfully no injuries.

    Java script error

    Awesome :) thanks @Patriot Yes costs can certainly start to accumulate using external services; they get you in with a cheap/free tier but the charges quickly ramp up once the site gets busy :-/
