Ye', I'm a sucker for a little branding stuff. So tempted for these.
@fractalfootwork ah, thanks for the link. Advantages over the factory loop: looks and ease of attaching a strap. But both safer than a hook. A friend does serious stuff so he has serious recovery gear. I'm not interested in off-roading but I could see potentially needing a small bit of this knowledge for snow or something.
This is awesome, may look into something similar myself. I've been thinking about picking up a similar Camaro or ecoboost Mustang instead of my i3. this has me leaning more toward the Camaro if I do make the switch.
@krustywantout Eh, not a big surprise. Given the way Ford is marketing the Bronco (see truck flying through the desert) I can see why the town wouldn't appreciate being overrun by a bunch of bro's tearing up trails because they have no idea what they are doing.
And this is it 3/4ths of the way through swapping the wheels and tires from a wrecked FJ onto it, front tire and wheel are the replacements, rear tire is original wheel and tire size. Both 17” wheel, just bigger more aggressive tire.
And here is the rear handle replacement installed on mine.
I can't find a transit bag here for under 200USD, I was thinking we'd just make one. I feel like shipping from AU would be a deal breaker?
It could be but 200 USD is 260 AUD. Local price is 165 AUD delivered and I can't imagine it'd cost another 100 to send it out.
There's an Engel dealer in town so I could remind myself how they are packaged and see how tight I could pack it down...I can't imagine it'd cost more than AU$50...hopefully less than AU$30 to send it over.
This is the old model transit bag by the way...
