    the only way you'd know the difference is by aking a ride in both his and my landy,.. the difference is HUGE!!

    Just a concern. Is't all that stuff blocking the air flow to radiator?? How is your temp?
    Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.

    how are you coping with the KHI heat nowdays? are you happy with the OEM airconditioner or have you done some mods to it.

    I'm looking to fit a 2nd unit in the rear at the end of the month (waiting for some payments)

    Storm..I am doing ok. Its not that bad for me, specially since I am in the A/C all day in the office and then in the landy i am in the front. I am however also thinking of a second a/c as well..maybe next month. Let me know what your set up you will be going for.

    I am also considering a 14" steering and that should pretty much do it as far as mods on landy is concerned. Oh yeah also a roll cage..

    Too fast..the air flow i not being blocked by the lights..there are plenty of gaps and for sure there are no heat up problems...yet (-;

    Ghuncha..Originally i put the second shocks for rallying purposes, but the reality is that they have made a very positive impact on drive quality and handling even on regular roads.

    Imran...I appreciate the offer to stay at your place. I will for sure look you up next time I am out there.

    Thanks for the tip on shared container and I will certainly use that route when i need to ship something large to Pakistan.

    By the way what do you do out there?

    I am in the garment business out here, selling to the US market.

    Imran, INshallah I will look you up next time I am out there in the US.
