Re: Koyorad heavy duty Radiator

How much for the rad? and did you consider other options like PWR? Just curious if there was a reason you chose Koyorad (im not questioning your decision)

Re: Ranger owner for the first time..

The rear diff lock is different to a centre diff. What that means is when you engage 4wd the front and rear are "locked together" delivering 50/50 front and rear. If you drive on hard surfaces you will "wind up" the transfer case and break it

They do tune for $1799, gives 163rwkw (tune only) and comes with warranty. Get them to chuck on an exhaust and cooler (say total cost 4k?) and you'd have same power, same warranty and 4k change!

Re: Rhino Evolution Bumper

My bad, poor wording. There bars are ADR compliant with "rated recovery" points built into the bar. I dont believe any of the main manufacturers (ARB/TJM) have this. ARB & TJM use the same centre piece with model specific wings, there bars have "tow points" which are very different to rated recovery.
