Re: Towing capacity’s

Mate, there is no replacement for displacement. 3.2 litre all the way. The 2 litre might be nice for the typical 'show pony' around town, but really, Australia has been ripped off by Ford with a 2 litre engine in the Raptor. Don't see too many Raptors towing do you???? My 3.2 litre Wildtrak has towe...

Re: PX MK3 XLT Silver

Nice ute mate and love the silver with the wheels.

If Ultimate Suspension are setting you up, you won't be disappointed. 70,000 km in my Wildtrack and she still rides perfectly towing my 6 metre plate boat.

Re: End of Lease Options?

Yeah. Probably leaning toward the option of paying out the residual at the end of lease which is set at 28%. That will be around $17,000 and I imagine that I could then sell it for around $30,000 if not more, or even just trade it in to lessen the pain of tyre kickers. That bit of profit can then be...

End of Lease Options?

Hey all, just wondering what everyone does at the end of a vehicle lease? My 5 year lease on my 2014 Auto Wildtrack, with only about 70,000 km on the clock currently, is due to run out in around 18 months, and I am just wondering what others have done at the end of their lease, why they have done it...

Re: Caravan towing weights - Please explain

Thanks Scotty. So ATM=GTM + TOW BALL If the GCM is 6000 kg, and kerb weight of the XLT dual cab is 2200 kg (from ford.com.au), then by the time you put the missus, 3 kids and fill up the tray plus a canopy and bullbar, there isn't much of a margin for stuff in the van.

Caravan towing weights - Please explain

Hey all. My brother is in the process of buying a caravan to hook up behind his PX2 Ranger XLT and tour this big brown land of ours. He has been asking me questions about towing weights and what the compliance plate weights on a caravan all mean. I then realised I really didn't have a clue. Both Ran...

Re: PX2 bullbar.

My brother is a shearer and has one of the plastic smart bars fitted to his XLT Highrider. Has hit a number of roos with very little to no damage at all at 100 km/hr plus. His is the full bar with the hoops and has a light bar fitted as well. Its a blue XLT but I don't have any pictures sorry.

Trailer Bearings - Ford or Holden?

Wondering how to tell if the bearings on my trailer are ford or holden? I want to change the 5 stud hubs to 6 stud 'landcruiser' hubs to have a common wheel and tyre size between the ute and the trailer. Is there an easy way to tell between the two?

Re: Which snorkel to buy

I thought there was two types of snorkel depending on the model of ranger it was fitted to based on the location of the side indicator? On the Wildtrack I had the one fitted that mounts over the removable side vent thing as the indicator is in the mirror. Still needed a hole cut in the guard though

Hey fellas. Does anyone know if you can attach Thule products like bike racks to the Rhino bars. Looking at a set of Vortex or Stealth bars for my PX Wildtrack. I already have the bike racks from another car and want to fit them to the Rhinos via the T Bolts. Thanks

Mate, check out the pics of my wildtrak with the ARB Ascent. Love it and get plenty of comments on how good it looks without handles on the side windows. Also love central locking.

Any tips on how to remove the roller shutter and sports bar thingy off a Wildtrack? Getting an Ascent canopy put on and want to take the shutter off to sell. Just keep removing screws until it falls off? ;) Searched on here and YouTube and only found some sketchy info on installation not removing. Wal
