    Pilat,
    In my response I did not recommended 2400km as a target range. I bought the 2 tanks because they were the right size and shape and gave me a capacity that was over 300L which was my aim. I...

    Yes, been there & done that but in a Landcruiser. I would love to do it in my truck but am sure there would be hand and nether region clenching moments.
  4. fuel tanks

    I agree with Skifreak here (a worry) re the sizing of tanks.

    I have always liked to have enough fuel so I can choose when to fill rather than have to. This is not just cost but also fuel quality....

    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'...

    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,

    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 !

    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...

    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.
