What are you going to drive
« on: November 15, 2017, 06:49:58 PM »
Following on from the spares thread it may be useful to know who else has the same tug to negotiate sharing.

We have a 2008 Patrol DX 3.0 common rail diesel

We'll be in our '99 GU TD42, but we'll only be with the main crew for a couple of weeks.
There'll be some parts that we could share Alan, but not belts/hoses etc.

 :cheers:

I guess suspension components should be similar and ...

Spare oil, atf, cooling fluid, nuts, bolts screws gaffer, cable ties, recovery gear should be common items
