Re: vibration noise since new rear springs

The harder rear shocks in the rear and depends on the rubbers used you may feel tyre and road vibration. Check your tyre pressures if they have been bumped up?

Re: Roof rack Vs trailer

Getting rid of stuff you actually don't need is also important, but it can take time to learn what that is, and the desire to have stuff when camping just in case can be very strong. This statement is so true. I carried around a LOT of stuff for "just in case" in my previous 4WD (very kitted out 10...

He used to be real helpful and polite, then maybe something happened when he was organising one of his ranger get togethers (apparently did a great job in the past). Then his answers became short and not so helpful. Still had a lot of info to share but seemed to not be bothered anymore. Now I see h...

Re: No locker, highway pressure no worries

Hey mate, its great to get out off on the beaten track, the Ranger just goes to show you can be driving down the highway and then head off in to the scrub. I went everywhere (i mean everywhere) just on HT tires for the first 40000km and I have never adjusted tire pressures. I hope the kids enjoyed it.

Re: Stedi switch panel

Hi, I’ve got the LF panel and it really does fit well and looks original and like the original panel it replaces it is a tight fit . The Stedi is a “snap-on” not sure of colour, and certainly a lot easier to fit particularly if you don’t have to remove the original panel. My only comments would be ...

Re: Can the reverse sensers be turned off

In the head-unit or car settings you have to tell the car it has a towbar fitted so when you put the car in reverse it doesnt go off. look in the hand book.
