With a front e locker and quality under body armour thru to the transfer case and you will have yourself a beast. The auto will hold gears after long periods of low range in sports mode. Soon after getting back onto the bitumen it will re-learn that holding gears is no longer required.

Re: My Wildtrak "Zeus"

I run a second fuel filter between the tank and the oem filter. Additional precaution when having to fill up in more remote areas. I suggested the Windbooster due to it having eco mode which is less than the factory curve. I have the 9 mode version and imho it should be standard factory issue.
