    Water pipe

    Like most folk on here I have fallen foul of the tyre shops who crank up their rattle guns when doing up wheel nuts. In my 4wds I have always carried a cheap torque wrench which I have 'calibrated'...

    On my NPS I built a steel frame (1" rhs) that goes around the existing start batteries and out flush to the edge of my subframe. I clad it with 2mm Al checkerplate. It has room for other messy stuff...

    Allan,
    Fair enough. I tossed the option around before doing it. I may well end up with atw springs but will wait until the vehicle is finished to decide. As an interim step they work quite well and...

    yabanja,
    Have you considered putting in air bags rather than normal end stops?

    Diplostrat,
    As I said in my response to Pugslyyy I regret posting and overstating re AGMs as I can see I was too generalised in my comments, it was intended as a warning and I was tired when I did...

    I hesitated before posting because I did not want to start an argument that always seems to surrounded batteries & charging.

    Pugslyyy is quite correct for his batteries as his specs show but note...

    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...

    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,

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