I have a 2" HD lift (RidePro) on my GU 2008. Looking at the sway bar links, they appear to be too short now. Is there a need to put in extended links in or just go with what is there? I think I might get better handling on and off road if I do. All I can see after market is 3" extended links and above. I have also heard somewhere there may be drop brackets for just 2" lifts?

Yep, you heard it right. Pat needs to make room for some fresh fourby's in his driveway, so the opportunity has come up to purchase a little slice of 4X4 television history. The vehicle is a white 2010 Ti Patrol, which retails for around $75K these days. It's the luxury version with all of the features including full leather, electric seats, satnav, front and rear air-conditioning and improved sound insulation over the rest of the range.

With the first part of our Cape York episode about to start this weekend, let’s talk about water crossings. As scary as they may look, a few pointers will have you getting safely to the other side and on your way to the tip.
The main thing to remember is that any successful crossing is based on preparation and common sense.
It’s that time of the year when families start thinking about camping over the Christmas break; thinking about that idyllic campsite, with either the surf pounding on the beach, or the river gurgling over rapids as the evening lullaby. Steaks and seafood on the barbecue plate, sunscreen and salt spray…ah, that’s the life! Here are some tips to make sure the reality matches the dream ...
By Ian Glover: On the road, we’ve all be in the position where one of the party can read e-mails or make calls on his/her mobile phone while the rest of us are staring at a completely unresponsive, no-signal mobile. (Or hopefully, we are the one with the phone and email reception!). And unfortunately, the same thing can happen with Satphones ...
