My gf and I are starting to plan our trip back to South Africa in August.
I need to get various items for my 1988 HZJ75 TroopCarrier. I know I can get some of these over there, but I would like to gather as much as possible before hand.
Before I post the questions on the various Land Cruiser forum I thought perhaps someone here would know some of the answers...:
-I want to add a rear locker as mine did not come with the limited slip found on the newer HZJ78. Does someone know what model of ARB rear locker I need? I have a 2H and a 5 speed (H55F) with stock gearing.
-I also want to get a winch. Last time I was in Botswana there were a couple times I would have feel more confident having one, as we were really remote. I can't remember which type of Warn winch will fit better on my ARB front bumper. I have the classic older style ARB bumper. I have attached a picture, if anyone could tell me which model I should be looking for...
-Also, for the same front bumper, does anyone sell a kit to mount a Hi-Lift jack? Something similar to this Land Rover picture. That's pretty much the best place I can think of to mount my hi-lift right now.
-I am also looking for sand ladders in South Africa (I can't obviously get these one here and bring it with me...), and a kit to mount them on the side of the truck. I remember seeing that long time ago from a German company. It's like 2 brackets that install on the side of the truck, over or below the windows. I am sure I can custom made something, but I'd like to find these if possible as it would be one less thing to deal with. Or at least some pictures to have a model.
Anyone remembers seeing this anywhere on the web?
As you can see, I am planning a lot of updates before the second phase of our journey...I am getting really excited. I just got some new maps today...
thanks for any input!
