Well, after 4+ years of driving this old girl around and clocking up more Km's of off road driving than most 4 wheel drives (including my own 4x4 hilux), I sold her today. Pretty sad to see it go, but the new owner has another one in his yard that he is going to use for parts, and he seemed happy to...

i think the sand you are driving on makes a bit of a difference too. one of my mates had no trouble driving around lancelin dunes (north of perth) but when we were in coral bay he got stuck a few times. just from normal driving on flat sand. i would agree with dropping tyre pressures to around 10-14...

i guess you could plumb a reservior it into the heater hose, then use a blocking cap on the radiator (like the ones found on nissan patrol radiators) and use the little overflow tube on the filler neck of the radiator as an air bleed. run a hose from the air bleed on the radiator filler neck back to...

and today i was looking for something to do, so i decided to make an "over the radiator" air intake. i know water will be forced in there when i go through water crossings, and i need to cut it a bit shorter and put some rubber between the air filter housing and intake plate. that way the engine can...
