Welcome.
Before anyone else asks, which suspension mod are you using and how many extra kgs do you get on the GVM ?

Re: Off road ready?

Agree with the others, tyres. And since you are buying new, you might want to negotiate with the dealer to switch the tyres before you pick it up. This should be a bit cheaper than driving it around for 500km and then doing it.

Re: Recall

I clicked on the above link to caradvice and then to the VIN list and my VIN wasn't in the list. I was a bit skeptical and went to this ACCC site and found a different list and my vehicle is on it. The one in the car advice link is called VIN List 53 and has 79 pages and the one below is called VIN ...

Re: NEW - HELP

I assume we are talking about the light which looks like a spanner. I have a 2016 XLS and I had it come on without any other symptoms and go off again when I stopped and restarted the car. Each time I went to the dealer who could not see any error codes or any other problems. The last time the light...

What is the criteria for a post to appear in "View New Posts" ? eg. If there are a lot of posts in one day, will some drop out even if they are not very old ?

Re: Soft Shackles

Are they on the ARB website ? I just went to have a look and I see they have redesigned the site to make you scroll down for everything. The pictures are so big that you can't read the text without scrolling down from the accompanying image. Is it just me or is the site very annoying ?

Re: New Member

Hi Vanatge1, I haven’t weighed one but I believe the kerb weight wouldn’t include the weight of the tray. From the brochure the Super C/C is 1928 + 1270 = 3198 GVM and the Super P/U is 2036 + 1160 = 3196 GVM Obviously the P/U includes the tub. If the C/C included the tray this would suggest the tub ...

Re: gvm-gcm upgrade

I have the Pedders upgrade which takes the GVM to 3500kg. Don’t know about the GCM You may already know it is best to get a GVM upgrade before you first register the vehicle or you will need to get an engineering certification etc. and a lot more expense. When they do the upgrade you get an extra co...
