Thanks for the ideas - the tyre isn't that old - 18,000 Km or thereabouts. No evidence of any problem until the pressure started declining this week, on a routine check it was at 26 psig (we normally...

We had OME on our LC80 (which was fine). For our Montero we took the advice of our local 4x4 specialist (agent for ARB and Dobinson's) and went with Dobinson's - mid-load rear springs, 50mm lift....

We were held up for two days in Northern Kenya by a fast-flowing flood down a "river" which is normally just sand. Had a snorkel etc., but didn't try crossing - about a metre deep (not a problem) but...

It's interesting that 40 years ago in Western Europe (excluding the colder bits in the north) the choice was essentially between 10W-40 and 20W-50 - the former in winter and the latter in summer. The...

5W-30 is designed for ambient temperatures from -30 to 35 deg C. If you're in Victoria you're not going to see -30 deg C much, so I think a 15W-40 makes more sense.

We went one size up from the standard on the vehicle (2016 3.8L) and now have 265/65-17s. They're fine - good ride, no issues with clearance, good on the highway and off road. We have a 50mm lift.

Ours is a 2016 model, however... We mounted ours onto the roof rack. We have a Dobinson's awning on the side, and an ARB at the back. They are both good, and easy to roll out and put back.

Ours (Gen 4) works with the ignition off, and I wish it didn't - nothing like annoying others in the campsite at night when you''re leaning in to get something!
