Re: headlight globes

The OSRAM lamps are good, the only thing is they have a vastly reduce life due the the tighter winding of the tungsten filament. To offset this a little they also use a Xenon gas filling instead of straight halogen gas. I have a little inside knowledge on this, worked there for 10 years or so going ...

Re: Ford Paint Codes for colour matching bull bar???

Black is 16W, I went to my local dealer to purchase some touch up paint, he couldnt find it straight away, took a number of phone calls and came back with a Mazda code for black, which I am guessing is the same. I did tell him at the outset that the colour code was 16W though and that what was liste...

Re: headlight globes

It is interesting to know that ADR is looking at LED's fitted to the front of 4WD's or any car for that matter as the VICROADS does say that only 6 forward lights are legal on the front of vehicles. The question is, are individual LED's within lightbars or conventional looking driving lights counted...

Re: EGR TONNEAU Cover

Couldn't agree Paw, I was thinking it would be the same as I had on my FG XR^ Ute, clearly not, does anyone know of another brand that will allow for the whole tonneau to be removed rather that rolled up?

EGR TONNEAU Cover

G'day Everyone,

Has anyone ordered their Ranger with a FORD ERG Tonneau Cover accessory? If so, what are you thoughts on not being able to remove it as it only rolls up? Personally, not overly impressed.

Interested to hear your thoughts.

Cheers,
