been watching safari 4x4 roetes on tv. they drive amarok's kitted out by RSI. sometimes they show underneath the vehicle and they have fitted a rear diff protection plate. how come something like this doesn't exist for the vigo ?

I'm sure it does. Have a look amongst these images .... https://www.google.com/search?q=diff+pr ... 80&bih=678

There are a number of different manufacturers supplying them and I'm sure you could find a local one. Otherwise just make up your own unit that bolts on with U-clamps (I don't like the idea of welding onto the banjo housing - you run the risk of distortion and also any shock is transferred more directly into it).
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

I just find it very strange that you look at all the top suppliers like stofpad, iron man, frontrunner etc none of them even list one in their products list.

Rigardt, If you are interested I can build you one according to your specs. I am a bit far as my workshop is in George so I don't know if postage will kill the price. But if you are interested you can give me a call o82319773o.
