  9. Hi I fitted Hankook RF10 LT 265/65 R17. These are all terrain tyres . only jusrt went on Leon
  10. Hi, I have a flip and easy. When the van was made I had backets made for the draw bar(extended) to hold both the trailer and a slide for the outboard motor. The trailer wheels have integrated into the rear bumper. The trailer has been assembled with all rollers etc in place. To assemble take the trailer off the draw bar open out and insert the pin. remove wheels from rear bumper and add to trailer. job finished. Hope this helps. We only use trailer for small distance travel. I have also installed a tow hitch into the front of the truck so that I can push trailer as well as pull. very handy. Leon
  11. Hopefully you have some alpine diesel onboard Leon
  12. Have put a hold on the Cooper st maxx and looking at other options Leon
  13. Steve thanks for your advice Leon
  14. Merv, Ended up with Cooper STMaxx 20/55/R20s Cost $510 . Also benefitted from a Coopers cash back of $40 per tyre bringing costs to $470 Thanks Leon
  15. Hi I am about to upgrade the tyres on the Silverado currently running 265/60/R20. Looking to move to 285/55/R20 All Terrain. Looking at Mickey Thompson ATZP3, Toyo AT2, Toyo RTs. What are you running and if anyone has had any experience with Mickey Thompsons ATZ. Any other recommendation welcome. I would be 60/70 blacktop 30/40 gravel etc Many Thanks Leon
  16. Hi Thanks all for your input. I have gone with Hankook RF10 265/65/R17 LT with a 120/s rating. Load for these is 1400 KGs regards Leon
  17. Hi , Van original tyres are 265/70/R17s shod with Goodyear Wrangler Kevlars which basically have a mud tread pattern. These need replacing so I was considering dropping the tyres size back to 265/65/R17 which reduces the profile slightly as this is a more common size. I would then look at a good Light Truck All Terrain tyre which would have a less aggressive tread. What have been yours experiences? Any advice on tyres you have on your vans. Thanks Leon
  18. Hi All After all the problems ended up coming to Gympie. Further investigation found that the Turbo inlet pipe had a leak due to some clips being broken. This may have occurred as a result of replacing a leaking steering box. Had 2 boxes replaced before a success with replacement on the third time. Back on the road and appears to be going well. Leon
  19. Merv, Thanks, I did search the site but came up no response. This is a great help. Leon
  20. Does any have information on snorkel kits , availability Leon
  21. Hi Finally got a diagnostic done which has revealed: 1) Fuel filter blockage- serviced 4k ago new filter so I may have copped some dirty fuel- need to investigate a pre -filter as a safety back stop happy to receive suggestions 2) Particulate filter blockage - operator error - have not been driving hard enough for long enough- will do a regeneration to burn carbon. (Need to run at 3500 plus revs for 20-30 minutes weekly/fornightly Some other interesting points from mechanic and towy: - do not use any silican prays in engine bay as these can cover and harden on sensor in particular O2 sensors (Going to wash down engine bay) - do not add fuel additives as these add volume to fuel and can impact sensors - best fuels are BP and Caltex vortex (Towy told shell is the dirtiest) Just need to do these repairs, check everything and will back on the road- hopefully to Darwin- but need to shorten Leon
