Re: ira11y's XLT

Hi mate did you get the intake cleaned? Or has the oil self cleaned When I put the catch can in I thoroughly cleaned out the intake using a rag and some turps on the inside of the throttle body, I only cleaned what I could safely reach without loosing something down there, I am not sure if I would ...

Re: ira11y's XLT

Nothing much new, just swapped up to 18"s with some FX4 rims and added the tailgate auto lock. Coming up to 2.5years old and 90K Kms this month, no major issues, lots of cosmetic warranty claims for leather and plastic bits, oh and they had to replace the dump pipe on the exhaust due to the flexi jo...

Re: Light bar or spotties on PX2 Nudge bar

A light bar will achieve better short range vision and side lighting than can be found with most flood spot lights, however a good set of pencil beam spotlights will always out do a light bar for distance, it comes down to what type of driving you are doing and what you want to see. I use pencil bea...

Re: Long range tank fill issue.

I run the same tank, fill up using the high flow truck nozzle with no issues (nozzle in the correct orientation), I would guess the breather tube is not working properly.

So I was at Ford yesterday and looking at the FX4 v Wildtrak as an upgrade from my XLT. Guy I spoke with used to run one of the Ford dealerships in Northern Sydney but is now a little bit further south, these were some of his comments yesterday. The FX4 was a slap together fix by Ford to try and fil...

Re: Media Screen in my new ranger wildtrak

There are two settings, go in to the settings menu on the screen and you can set the brightness offset, if you like it very dim just drop it in to the negative. After that is set you can then toggle it up and down using the dim feature at the main light switch.

The radio interference will most likely be from the LED's. The radio in the ranger is very susceptible to noise based on other peoples issues, that...

I am still getting this but not as often as when I first got her new.
