Hi from a warm South Africa

You are in one of my Favorite places in the World. I mostly see Land Rovers and Toyotas when I am over there. Nice to see a great looking Jeep. I am anxious to get back there and have some Bushbuck on the spit.

These are the rigs we used last time I was there. Nice to know we may be in a Jeep next time. I would think the Jeep trucks or a J-8 would be a good thing over there..

Sorry for the highjack, but this truck is exactly what my first vehicle was. Mine was a 1966 model in white. It was unstoppable except for a crumby approach angle. See how overhang the box has? I had an occasion where I was going up a bluff, in northern Montana, and the rear bumper drug and lifted the rear wheels off the ground. I went up a little way but spun-out and was stuck because the bumper would not clear going back down. This was in soft shale and there was nothing to winch from. We could not jack enough from the back to get back down either. So we jacked up the front and chained the front tires. Put it in 1st and low and it went easily to the top.

Again, thanks for letting me reminisce about a great truck. Now get back to the South Africa thread.

Interesting placement of the fogs there. Any particular reason for that?

Are the roads wider there?

I like the placement of the wide driving lights on the overseas models. Maybe it because it just looks different than ours. We always tend to want what we can have..

I wouldn't say the roads are wider, but I would say you need to pay attention to the sides. Most of the roads I have been on there have no break down lane or shoulder. Just soft dirt right off the pavment lane. You also have to watch for all the donkeys and such that they leave right along side of the road. We had a 50" Kudu horn come slamming thru the front piller on a van one day on the way back from the airport. It missed passing thru the front passenger by just a couple inches. So I guess wide side lights are a good thing over there.

Hi Guys

I will definitely post more pics. Going away for the weekend to a game farm in the north of the country. Lots of off-road driving to be had. Itís been raining a lot the past two weeks so I suspect some nice mud up there.

The one thing I intend changing first though is the front bumper. This is the JKA full front bumper! Will get one early next year.

PS: Yes it does get cold here, but I have never seen snow in my life J

Welcome, this forum is gathering members from all 4 corners of the globe! (I am in the sub tropical end of Australia)

We have the same front bumper with the wide spread fog lights down here too. Ours are based on some of our strange laws - fog lights must be minimum 600mm apart (about 2 feet).

Nice pics! Is the star on the side the target area for a ticked off black rhino?
