Re: Tyre pressure for Namibia & Kaokoland

Ek het vroeƫr artikels oor 4x4 roetes geskryf en meer as 120 trips met meer as 10 voertuie in 'n groep gedoen. Elke voertuigeienaar het self sy voertuig se banddruk bepaal. Die meeste papwiele op hierdie trips was met Duelers gewees. Weet nie of dit toeval was nie. Dankie Danie. Nie regtig wat ek w...

Re: Tyre pressure for Namibia & Kaokoland

Op daai trips, hoe sagter jy kan gaan, hoe beter, maar - m2cw - hang dit af van die band se sidewall. Ek het my BFG AT's op grondpad, vlaktes 1.8 gery, klip (soos Van Zyl's) 1.5, en in sand en rivierbeddings 1.2. (en ek het gesleep). Ons was 5 vrte, saam 30 000 km's, nie 1 puncture nie. Lekker ry -...

Re: Air Jack for double cab - 1.5 ton or 2.5 ton

Remember you dont really lift up the full weight of the vehicle. If you lift up the right back half of the vehicle it is basically only a 1/4 of the weight.So theoretically 1.5 will be enough Yes but... I've seen posts where guys say that the 1.5tons means it is for a vehicle weighing up to 1.5tons...

Re: Air Jack for double cab - 1.5 ton or 2.5 ton

Trying to find out how Takla's rating works.
On some such air jacks 1.5tons means it is for a vehicle weighing up to 1.5tons.
On others it means the jack can actually lift up to 1.5 tons...

For the Takla? Wish I knew.

Air Jack for double cab - 1.5 ton or 2.5 ton

Hi
What would you recommend for use with Hilux Double Cab (2006 & later)?
Can buy 1.5 ton Takla from friend. Or should I rather go for 2.5 ton?

Re: Tyre pressure for Namibia & Kaokoland

Thanks to all for the replies & advice. I read once or twice before that lower pressure on dirt roads is better in the long run. But want a bit more direct advice on actual experience... Recently went with the "higher pressure" (2.6) to the Cederberg & had 1st flat in many years from something cutti...

Tyre pressure for Namibia & Kaokoland

Off to Namibia in a few weeks with a Bushlapa Miskruier in tow. Will be travelling extensively (as one does in Namibia :mrgreen: ) on gravel roads & also through Kaokoland. What tyre pressure would you recommend 1) on the normal Namibia gravel roads and 2) on the Kaokoland roads? Dueller ATs on the ...
