    Bad Kissengen 2023

    Back from my tour of Ireland (report to follow) and in typical chating around the camp fire style, discussing where the next trips will be taken, I floated the idea of organising a trip to the show in June 2023. I've never been, but understand its a good crack, weather dependent. Obviously it's...

    Are the props the same in the diesel and petrol models I.e. a rear from the petrol will fit the rear for a diesel? and any difference for the pre '02? Then any suggestions on sources for new?

    After a sounding board. Truck developed a vibration around the time I fitted front bumper and winch. Can't see anything wrong or loose here. I also had the transmission fluid changed as I had a leak on the pan. Vibration comes on about 50mph at 1800rpm then disappears about 60mph circa...

    Front spot light's

    Been planning the connection of my new spots. Has anyone wired them just to the high beam trigger and wished they had an override to allow them to come on separately?

    Inlet heater disconnect.

    Hi. Can I just confirm that this is the inlet heater feed and disconnection point. The wires feed back to a point mounted on the drivers side inner wing. How have others disconnected it?

    Winch connection to 100 series

    Did a search and found items relating to 80s but not the 100. For a winch connection on a right hand drive vehicle, drivers or passenger side battery? I believe physically the drivers side is nearest the alternator and the start is still 12v just utilises the amps from both batteries, so was...

    Pedestrians and revised high code.

    Maybe i have misinterpreted what I have read but does this... At a junction, drivers, motorcyclists, horse riders and cyclists should give way to pedestrians crossing or waiting to cross a road into which or from which you are turning. You should give way to pedestrians waiting to cross a zebra...

    Finally got Thomas back from the body shop with a much lighter wallet. I had them remove the windscreen and address the rusted areas. Also to do the same to the rear lower arches.

    Frontrunner slanted tank - level sensor.

    Anyone fitted a level sensor to the FR slanted tank. The access point is too small to get a hand in for an internal nut/s so only option I can see is one mounted to the the tank cap or using screws from the outside.
