    AGM charge rate

    Two points of caution when using AGM batteries. They are great when used away from the engine but hate getting hot and it will shorten their life dramatically. The least appreciated fact is that AGM...

    NO the main door would normally be locked by the user unless they are feeling adventurous. In my case exposure could be considered a health hazard to the viewer. Aging and overweight = not pretty !

    We are building up an Isuzu NPS300 and in my planning for the internal layout I soon realised how precious the internal floor space was. I knew that we had to have an internal toilet and shower for...

    2007 - 2008 models

    I have one of the last 2007 NPS300. Mine has an access hatch in the cab which is very little use if you have added sound proofing and a custom centre console. It is quicker to tilt the cab which...

    I Oiled mine when new and then carried it on the roof rack. Was all jammed up when I had to use it after about a year. Cleaned it with petrol and then sprayed it with a dry lubricant and store it in...

    A few comments based on many years of 4wd in Landcruiser size vehicles.
    1. You need more than one type of lifting system as Murphy will always put you in to a different situation.
    2. Hilift jacks...

    I recently bought one of the following for my NPS300. They have a range of sizes. 5 ton would be enough but I went for 12 ton so the seals were under less stress. The 20 ton is just too big and heavy...

    Re need. My Isuzu NPS has no guards and a torn boot on the LHS. I only spotted the tear after parking with the wheels angled. When straight ahead it closes up. A piece of pencil thick wood was...

    Leisha,
    Are the wheels approved for use in Aus? If so I may go that way too. Did you source them direct or through an agent here? A$ price ?

    Julius,
    Do not use garden hose it will leach chemicals into the water that are carcinogenic and just taste bad. You can buy food grade hose in the same size - usually blue with a white inner layer.

    try the duals

    Ianc,
    I would guess it is due to the tyre change. Do not know the Continentals but perhaps the side wall flex is causing the issue.

    If you still have the original wheels I would put them on for a...

    Nigel,
    Plugging the dust entry points is obviously the key but one approach I have used in the past is to install a fan that sucks air in from outside through a filter and hence presurises the...
