Gebruik 'n stukkie 20mm pvc waterpyp oor die pap Gaslift. Werk soos 'n bom, geen meer kopstamp!

Clever idea!! :thumbup:

A piece of PVC electrical conduit should work just as well and you have a choice between black or white to match the colour of the gas-lifts.
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

Life is like a jar of Jalapeño peppers ... what you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow.
Don't take life too seriously ..... no-one gets out alive.
It's not about waiting for storms to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
And be yourself ..... everyone else is taken!

Having them re-gassed is not too expensive. Midas does the re-gassing in the bigger centers...

The gabriel ones are stupidly expensive, but Midas can regas them. The ones from 4x4direct or MacNaughtans are cheaper but can only be adjusted at the point of sale.
Happy trails

New lifters aren't that expensive either, think we paid R87 each for the 200mm ones gassed to 150Nm, the Mcnaughtans brand that is.
