    Do you need shock covers?

    The Koni 90'S for the live axle cruisers have a front exposed shaft due to the size of the shock as a cover simply would not fit . I have had no issues with this . They decided not to do this to the rear due to stone spray damage . I have always protected my rear sections on all my shocks by...

    Solar output

    Thanks @Drewswb. As you see on my image, mine puts out 23V and with its stated rating does not match my Supercheap Auto 100W Solar blanket of just on 6 amps in full direct sunlight. Seems like many sellers fake the specs on ebay on solar panel and its up on google.

    Solar output

    @ryn . I also purchased a 200w. Solar panel 1200 x550 on ebay ,with all the high tech certifications which I see are all BS .It was to fit my roof rack. I'm lucky if it exceeds 5 amps in full clear sunlight. Contacted seller with required photo's and received a full refund/ keep panel. I then...

    Not a trip report, as much as expedition video - Red Center

    Well done David and very well filmed. Considering the time of year and the very high risks you took travelling it solo where recovery is not possible but managed to come out the other side. You did very well. I am familiar with your route and I know of no other vehicles that have travelled the...

    Reliable TPMS

    I also purchased the 4 sensor $34 tpms kit below over a year ago just for the sensors as the transmit frequency are the same as digoptions . Ended up using the kit on my other 4b. They work very well including deep water crossings. They have a long transmit range. The only downside is display...

    Reliable TPMS

    Most of the external sensors use the button type lithium CR1632, sold at most supermarkets. Life in the supplied manual says about 3 years of use.

    Reliable TPMS

    I'm not to concerned about the tyre temp unless you drive a fully laden road train. Consider the external sensors . If your batteries go flat on the internal ones it's a high cost to remove the tyres/ rebalance. If you decide to buy the cheaper internal tpms, I suggest to replace the cheap...

    Will there be a Qld 4x4 earth gathering soon?

    Fraser or Morton would not be worth the expense just for the usual Friday and Sat nights, unless you plan to stay longer. With the ferry , camping and permits it works out quiet expensive. Like $280 return on the ferry from Victoria point. plus permit for 1 month or less = $52.75 , plus camping...
