Thanks for the comments guys! I'll post my Botswana trips pics soon too. I did Lesotho in August 2011 (End of winter) and Botswana in November - Our Spring / Summer.

I must just rip the pics out of some video footage. Now if only youtube stopped muting my music ;(.

I'll do a trip soon with them disconnected. I don't think my fronts are the extended ones?

I'm planning a snorkel and RDL within the next few weeks. Has yours given you any hassles?

Lesotho - Southern Africa

A while back I asked for advice regarding snow, as we don't get much here in South Africa (once in 30 years). Anyways I waited as long as I could before going to Lesotho as I was waiting for my Yoko MT's. Well I love them, and the 6 month wait was worth it (japan earthquake delays). ----------------...

Thanks for all the replies HOW the advice differs to what I got locally!!! Everyone was punting MT's OVER the AT's. 05Pathfinder - hehe Lesotho doesn't have parking lots. There's NO barriers on the edges of cliffs, there's NO cell reception apart from one city in west part. There's just mountains, c...

We rarely have snow, need some advice

I currently have some outside edge worn Michelin AT2's 265/65/17's and plan on going to the Lesotho highlands in a week or so. We are HOPING to see snow, I know for many of you this is common. In 30 years I've only seen it once and it was 0.5" think. I wanted to fit a set of Yoko MT+ or Hankook MT03...

Gearbox guys says Nissan "forgot" to check the codes and told him to just replace, he says that the unit was receiving signals but not responding to them. He suspects a surge of sorts. Should receive the car by the end of the week, in SA the dealers are normally not very technical and outsource ofte...

Hi Tech

I was misinformed by Nissan, I spoke to the gearbox guys this morning as it's not fixed yet. The say they changing the transfer case unit NOT gearbox - still the costs are as I said above...

They reckon they have NO idea what caused the failure.

Here's their website.

Update, I didn't get to take look myself but Nissan is fixing it. They sent it in to a gearbox specialist as they struggled to even "see" it wasn't working...anyways, $3700 to replace the solenoid. $2800 for new gearbox, I told them fit a new box. BTW, they say they had to open my gearbox to replace...

Hey Scotty good to see another Safrican...V9x what an engine. Perhaps give the nudge a skip? Maybe nissan can order you the excellent bullbar from Australia, it has proper air cooling for the intercooler. The ARB and TJM's don't look too good for airflow :(. Nissan have their OWN bullbar and it look...
