It looks nice philp
How is the new steering colmn working out for you ?
The people that made your bedsides did a nice job

The most important aspect of your truck is how happy you are with it

Thank you!!

The new steering collumn is a disaster compliments of the people who made it in the PRC:
1. The gear lever fulcrum pin (pressfit) keeps working itself out;
2. The top bush is already worn out so now the steering can move sideways in all directions;
3. The tilt mechanism also seems to be degenerating;
4. This, after only 6000km.

The bin was made by a chap here in Pretoria, the fenders and steps are genuine Apache, but they were in a bad way, but well repaired.

Now that its all sorted, except for steering collumn, I am really, REALLY happy with it. Gives me 10 scazillion smiles per mile :-)

That is a great looking truck. I would have a big smile on my face if I was driving it too...
