Agreed sometimes ya can pick up small bits and pieces cheap but if ya shop around between various suppliers ya can generally negotiate a pretty decent deal.

Re: Garden Variety PX2 Ranger

I actually ordered the Invaders but the shop stuffed up but the guy looked like he could use a break and I didn't really mind. Upside, the wheel nuts are covered with the vapours. Less drama getting mud off the nuts for an emergency swap. That’s about a million karma points to you. Sent from my iPa...

Re: Garden Variety PX2 Ranger

Looks great mate I’m a big fan of the current wheels ROH are offering I’m looking at the invaders for mine and after seeing your vapours in +25 I’m sure they will look the part. The stedi light upgrade makes a massive difference too as the standard lights are pretty pox. Sent from my iPad using Tapa...

Re: What Insurance company do you use......recommend or not?

I wont recommend Club 4X4. There are several reasons that are all in the small print and in their disclosure documents. Firstly their full recovery insurance, you have to pay it out first, they then reimburse you. If that sounds fair think about this (a true story) you break down on the CSR heading...

Re: Recall

My xls went in for recall. 2 days gone still not ready. Told may tomorrow - day 3 That's crazy it's only a couple of bolts to replace a calliper I've upgraded breaks on other vehicles and it was pretty simple. Surely a break line wouldn't take long to run have they told you why it's taking so long....

Re: PX MK3 XLT Silver

Hey mate looks awesome hopefully they won't have much to change for the px3 for the summit bar, from what I understand it's only cosmetic changes to the body, obviously a bit more tech and the new engine option, so mounting etc should be pretty similar to the PX2. Normally ARB, TJM etc get early rel...
