You've probably been asked this lots of times, but I'm thinking of doing a little light green-laning in my Sportrak, and I could use some sensible advice, please?
First up - tyres: Anyone had any experience with Kingpin Mud remould tyres? Seen them advertised (in my low budget area), and I wonder if they might shed their treads if used seriously, particularly if the pressures are lowered? Also, are they hard-wearing, or too soft for normal road use?
Suspension - is it worth fitting tougher/re-tempered leafs & winding up the fron torsion bars for better clearance? I've seen lots of people recommending body lifts, but that won't increase ground clearance, will it? Just space for taller wheels, I think.
Cooling - currently has standard fluid-coupled fan, but I wonder if an electric one's better? Mine seems to run quite warm after a little brisk driving, even though it's got new rad/water pump/thermostat/rad cap, etc - any other ideas? No oil in water or vice-versa, so I'm sure the head gasket's ok; I just don't want to boil it up off-road.
All practical ides most welcome!
