I'd expect, if there was going to be any impact, that it'd be felt at the front (heavy engine)... think i'll give it a go with them out. One less job to do!Mines a swb but when they failed near new drop link bushes at mot time for no reason i just took both arbs off and it makes no difference to how it handles .
Well that is my other option... So what are your thoughts?Just to throw a spanner in the works https://www.roughtrax4x4.com/toyota...-kit-monroe-pedders-pre-assembled-struts.html
Awesome thanks for the info!I’ve been running the monroe/pedders combo for 12 months with 6 of those in Africa. Doing great so far and my fav mechanic out there rates them highly
Personally I ditched my invertor and switched everything to 12v chargers. Covering 12v to 240 and then back down seem a little pointless for most things.
For water I just use a 25l Jerry can, unless your doing weeks in the desert between towns you can fill up regularly and don’t need to carry the extra weight.
No winch for me either, never needed one, just learn to know when to take another route imho.
What lift did you get from the kit?I didn't get near 20k miles out of my pedders shocks and so i replaced them with monroe because i've no complaints about monroe suspension lift i put on the mrs truck several years ago .
If it was +50mm and suitable for the weight you expect to carry it gives you a price comparison anyway .
The stated 40mm seems an odd number but i know Roughtrax take a keen interest in customer comments , they actually phoned me requesting i took meaurements because i was the first to buy a 1KZ monroe lift for a 1KD 90
I did wonder about winch max... Bit of a mixed bag of reviews... But given that it'll likely be using it only as a safety measure I may take the trade off on price!You could give winch max a go 13500lbs with synthetic rope a wander lead and remote got a fair choice to choose from and not bad prices used mine a fair bit for dragging trees out the woods and other general abuse also went for marine grade isolator fitted in engine bay when not in use
