      When i was looking for tyres for my Jeep, Taleb Tyres was actually the cheapest around. That was for BFG All Terrains.

        Ended up getting some Goodyear Wranglers or some shit. I know a Goodyear dealer and they were $60 per tyre cheaper than anything else. Mostly good reviews online. I'll see how they go. Fitted them about an hour ago.

            Dobinson mrrs are meant to be really good now that they've fixed the hose issue.

              So shit got out of control. I got bored waiting for parts for the Commodore and spent all the money I had for that on this.

              Now has 2in lift, 33s on steel wheels, snorkel, diff breathers, Titan draws, Engel, duel battery, Rhino Pioneer Platform, awning, shovel & hi lift, Maxtrax, roof top tent, Xrox bar, VRS winch, 42in light bar, UHF, plus misc other crap.

              Been out a few times with it and it goes up and down stuff pretty well. Fun times.

              I've ordered a duel carrier bar but delayed it a couple of months cos I'm dropping a bomb on a trip to Japan. Still a few other bits and pieces I want to do but they can wait. Not doing anything to the engine while I have the Commodore.

                  Did a night run out the back of Zig Zag in Septemer (second one I've done). Actually put a camera on the car for some footage. Finally got around to putting it together today. First time I've ever tried making a video. I've changed the camera to 1080 since.

                    Well at least it wasn't the car that fell over. Looks like a good little track.

                      Looks like ranger bobs at that time stamp?

                      The right track is pretty fun.

                        Certainly is Ranger Bobs. The 80 eventually got up the right track. Most of the others went the far left. A GQ on 35s walked up the left, all the IFS needed a few goes and a couple winched.

                          You did well, after watching my Wrangler and an FJ walk up the right/tough track the 80 (lifted, 35s) with us spent ages tearing it up before admitting defeat and going up the middle.

                            So the cunty thing is giving me problems again. UHF stopped working and found it was full of water. Appears to be rain water due to the mineral staining on the electrical connections. AC also keeps losing gas, and water is dripping on the passenger floor. Drive it up to Stockton a month ago, setup fine, life is good. Go to leave at the end of the day it turns over but won't fire. Melted the EFI fuse but it didn't blow. Replaced fuse and still wouldn't fire. Towed off the beach ($400) and called NRMA. NRMA dude lobs and it starts first go. Fucken angry. Also cracked the exhaust manifold and welded up as much that could be reached without taking it off. Meh.

                            Water is leaking in from outside and into the passenger side kick panel (where the UHF was). Straight on top of the main wiring harness, near the computer. Seems to be from somewhere up high. I've pulled the roof rack off and sealed all the bolts and put them back in. I don't think that's the issue. It'll be something lower around the windscreen just to piss me off. I think it's the water that runs down the rain gutter behind the thick rubber trim that runs up next to the windscreen.

                            Cleaned out the AC drain but it wasn't blocked. Pulled off the evap cover and sealed it with sikaflex cos the lower seal was rooted (common prob). Should fix the dripping.

                            AC leak I'm still looking for but probably under the dash just to piss me off. It got a new compressor last year. Re gassed it again in Jan due to not working at all, and it's already noticeably not as cold.

                            NFI why the fuse melted. There was a loose cable going to the positive on the battery (not the main terminal) that may have caused a gremlin. It did the same thing once before intermittently then worked once I replaced the same EFI fuse. Went to auto elec who couldn't find anything but tightened up the connections in the fuse box.

                            I still like the car and want to use it as a beater for beach work and proper off road stuff where panels may get fingered. Nopics has agreed to purchasing something newer and more reliable to use as a tourer. I don't know what to get but will start a thread for ideas.

                                Mate what is the track from 38 seconds? I've seen it come up on video a few times now but never seen it myself?
