Check my new Suspension

Now that's almost a monster truck! How about fitting a bracket to get the panhard bar horisontal again? Just to help stabilize things again. Your tuna looks mean

Roof rails

Hallo Nico First remove the plastic covers. The fore and aft one's need to be opened along the sides close to the roof and then slide away from the horizontal beams. The plastic covers on the center post clip of to the sides. With the plastic covers removed its easy to see the bolts holding the roof rack in place. Remove the bolts and there, the job is done.

Carry rack

Het Zonkie net so oor die 600km laat draf vandag met die rak agterop. Heel gelukkig, het nog bagasie binne ook bygepak. Ek is heel gelukkig met die besigheid. Die ligte skyn so bietjie hoër, maar die kan verstel word indien nodig. Nou die dakrak... dra plek vir die tent en kajak.

Baie dankie, Jy is so reg daarmee! Die plan is om Zonkie op die spaarwiel skerm te sit. If you look carefully you'l see the hard-points for the hook of the high lift jack on the side of the bumper. (Cut in a T- shape the way the people Down-Under prefer)

Welcome Mark, Well if you have been to Kubu Island your navigation abilities is up to standard. Amusing rout that, especially from the south. Six seven dirt tracks running in the same general direction and you have to choose. Those baobab's are just magnificent!!!

Carry rack

Hi Creed You are right there, it might be a problem time will tell. I do a lot of driving on dirt. My guess is that the added weight could actually be beneficial on dirt roads. Did fit the rig today, Shall post some pictures just now. The swing mechanism consist of two arms, the one on the left is shorter than the right hand arm that support the spare wheel as well. The ball bearing hinges is fitted on both ends of the bumper. The arms lock into a center section that not only provide a solid loc...

LRP fuel being phased out.

Maybe twisting the subject a little: On Fuel additives: What do our fellow forum members think about now and then popping in some of the goodies sold to correct fuel quality? Like the stuff that mixes with the water in the fuel to better the " combustibility" and thereby rid the fuel system of potentially harmful moisture. (or that is at least what the suppliers of the goodies claim)

Chobe National Park is a must

A fine place for a stop over when traveling from Palapye to Maun via Lelhakane is the Khama Rhino Sanctuary just north of Serowe. What a experience, the rhino roam free in this sanctuary, no fences to keep them away from the camp sight. Sat there next to the water hole on a rock quietly observing them. After their afternoon mud bath a big bull and a cow with a very playful calf, came and grazed a stone trow away. Spectacular! Groups of camp sites share a common ablution. The setup actually neatl...

Chobe National Park is a must

Really beautiful photos thank you. Ja, is maybe best to go visit outside school holidays. It is getting expensive. There fuel is a bit cheaper, it helps. Traveling down south to Nata in the rainy season is great, all the elephants along the road. Came across a bus once that had a scrap with a angry elephant. Luckily no one got hurt, but the annoyed elephant made a fine mess of the front body parts of the bus.

Looking after the D4D turbo charge

Also prefer to take it nice and slow the last few kilometers. Found a interesting illustration on the turbo.s working on you tube: Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kp8h5XLLbGA This clearly explains the turbo part of the D-4D success story. Can't remember reading anything in the operating instructions about idling, but agree with TJ, better safe than sorry.

Crossing into Zambia at Kasangula

Crossing into Zambia at Kasangula, give one the feeling that one enters a unknown civilization. One of the gateways into the real Africa. A scene that words just can't explain. Transport trucks waiting three, four kilometers inline for their chance to cross the great Zambezi via ferry. People carrying goods, swarming onto the only way across for many a mile. The fairy's two big diesel engines, one on either side roaring, pushing the vessels massif load against the current. People some frowning, ...

Chobe National Park is a must

The visit to Chobe National Park is a must if ever one would like to see a crocodile, hippopotamus, buffalo, elephant, kudu, impala, and various other animals and birds all in one picture. It is almost indescribable. Watch out for the diesel merchants to the north though (around Nata), got allot of kerosene mixed in with the diesel, once. Something the TDI Landy back then didn't enjoy at all. Don’t know how a D-4D would perform in such conditions. Maybe it would not be a bad idea to take some 2 ...

Dirt road traveling

O' I forgot to mention, traveling at 80-90 km/hr on this road gave close to 11 km/liter on average.
