Hi,

Being absent for a while doing the two-wheel thing, I came to my senses AGAIN and I am looking for a 4x4 vehicle in the region of R100k. Will be a cash buy. Any recommendations welcome!

Welcome back Henry!! :thumbup:

There's a steal of a deal here on the forum, a 2000 Prado VX (full house) for a mere 70k. You could do a helluva lot worse. :winkx:
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

Hi Henry James se Prado het permanent four wheel drive so die voertuig het n centre difflock sowel as n rear difflock op, die eerste modelle het nie die rear locker gehad nie. Van middel 1999 is dit wel ingesit en dit maak n baie groot verskil in alreeds impressive ability. Ground clearance is goed vir so voertuig. OME suspension lift werk goed op so voertuig. Baie under rated voertuig vandag nog. Gaan kyk jy sal aangenaam verras wees

James het ook geantwoord maar se hy het nooit die low range of diff locks gebruik nie so hy kan nie se of dit werk nie.

Ek sal gaan loer tnx

Verskoon my onkunde ... brei asb meer uit oor hoe die verskil is van permanent 4-wheel drive en dan die centre difflock se funksie. Kan mens dan centre en rear lock?

Hoe ek hom verstaan: Al die krag word deur die transferbox na al die wiele gestuur - soos met 'n open diff, die wiel met die minste weerstand kry die meeste.

Sodra jy die centre diff lock, gaan die krag 50/50 na die voor en agter aste, beide nogsteeds open diffs; as een wiel spin gaan al die krag daarheen, maw een wiel kan vinniger as die ander draai.

As jy nou bv. die agter diff lock draai beide wiele teen dieselfde spoed. As èen traksie verloor kry die ander wiel nogsteeds dieselfde hoeveelheid krag.

.

Jy is heeltemal korrek met daai verduideliking Thabo. Rear difflock werk net in lowrange.
