    snow chains and mud terrains

    Yes it is when going to resorts because the bitumen roads are cleared by snow plows but then " BLACK ICE " can form when the wet road freezes. Most ski hire places hire them for weekends for standard size 4x4 tyres like 31s, lager sizes are harder to come by.

    Hi Lift Jack Question????

    Ya far better off with a 4 T bottle jack, a jack plate & a spade or long handled shovel. Yes Hi Lift jacks are dangerous, very limited in their use, offten hard to lower back down, can damage pannels, they're heavy cumbersome. In shot they are a PITA. I hate the bloody things. A 4 T...

    Don't go out alone.

    I totaly agree! The real lesson here is DON'T GO UNPREPAIRED. You had all the right gear to get yourself out of any thing you got ya self into, so " What dosen't kill ya only makes ya stronger " working things out for ore selves is how we learn. It's call experience.:D

    Newbie needs help!

    Did he always let the Turbo cool down ( Idle ) for 1 - 2 minutes befor turning it off? Failure to do this is the is the quickest way to blow ( burn out ) a turbo. A Turbo spins at much higher RPMs than the engine & is red hot. Turning it off without letting it cool, oil is baked on to it & it...

    Morning to all.....

    G'day & welcome aboard Gippslander. If you're going to keep it for many years, consider the cost & availability of spare parts, Nissan & Toyota top the list I think in this regard. Very easy to get parts for either any where in Oz. Some other makes parts are harder to get. I've asked...
