Re: Not a Nissan sorry - The Challenger


Got some updating to do on this thread. First new tyres - Cooper ST Maxx 265/70r17 (32"). These are a 50/50 hybrid between a muddy and an A/T.

Installed a diff breather and an extra 12V socket. I bought part of a breather kit from eBay and bought the air tube from Clark rubber. I did the rear breather by just running the tube along the top of the chassis rail into the engine bay. Next I removed the centre console and plastics to access the top of the transfer case and gearbox. Found that they actually breathe into each other so left them alone. The black tube in the photo is the breather. The front diff is meant to already have a breather but be buggered if I could find it.

While I had the plastics apart I figured I may as well install an extra 12v socket in the centre console.

Spent 4 days up in Forster after new years and got to test the Challenger out on some fairly difficult tracks. Met a nice bloke named Aaron driving a Troopy that had done this track before and told me it was 'gnarly' (and he had just come back from Cape York). I said well you can go first then in case I decide to turn around. Thought I'd share some of the videos and pics.
The descent - it's hard to see how difficult the track was but the angles of the bull bar and the troopy lifting wheels should give you some idea.

Great vids Todd and a pretty challenging track by the looks of things.
I guess your white coloured duco pretty much hides all the "bush pinstripes" ay what!!!

cheers

Yeah Dave rear diff locker was needed on the way back up. White was my colour of choice after having 2 black X-Trails for that exact reason emoticon

Re: Not a Nissan sorry - The Challenger


Been a little busy the last week or so. Installed a Runva 11XP winch, finished building the rear drawer and did a mid-service oil and filter change. The Mitsubishi service interval is 15,000km which seems a little too much for me. So I decided I would do extra oil changes between.

Am I meant to infer from that comment that the rest of the mods are not 'proper'?
