Mav, if you have some more pictures and you feel like testing your writing skills/or Not, you can post your trip experience in the travelogues section .

We would love to read about your Kashmir trip.

Steer can you please elaborate on the LSPV setting to us?

dadu/ajith : The Load Sensing Proportioning Valve is - AFAIK - meant to adjust brake bias between front and back (on regulate/modulate brake pressure on the back) based on the load conditions on the back of the vehicle.

If this isnt working as intended it could cause more pressure on the rear brakes than are required, thus locking up just the rear wheels when the front are still 'unlocked'.

Just take the vehicle to your TASSS if you feel your braking is not proportionate b/w front and rear and they will recalibrate or adjust the LSPV. Doesnt take long.

I havent had this issue on my truck, but I did some research on it after Mpower asked me to get it checked it in one of my threads.

No issues with braking since then, but I agree braking isnt adequate in terms of the time taken to slow down the 2 tonnes. No fishtailing or slipping here - what rubber are you running, Doc?
steer,my apologies.i missed your post somehow.
thanks will certainly get the 'LSPV' checked at the earliest.
i'm running the stock bridgestone duellers.
completely inadequate and squeals like a witch at every other odd turn.
was hoping to change them after our (now temporarily abandoned) ladakh trip.

no MAV i haven't gotten the claddings on my truck painted.
my pearl white little girl is wearing smart grey pants....lol!
in my opinion an all white safari looks way to 'sarkari'.
one of the more important reasons i havent gotten them painted is that i do a fair bit of gravel driving,mud driving and hill climbing.nothing extreme but enough to chip the paint off any creamy painted plastic.

Same here. My salesman also said "Please don't choose the Arctic White colour - that looks too political".

One does accumulate scratches on the bumper over time, esp. off road and on rough patches. Better to keep the stock bumper.

Congratulations MAV owning this Great Black Beast "Safari".

However, I bought Safari Petrol VXi 4x4 Quartz Black in last June which is really an Excellent vehicle and I have no complaint, nor I came across any problems yet with the vehicle which has alredy crossed 7000 kms. Somehow by my blood, I like only Petrol driven vehicles and hate Diesel vehicles, that's why I opted for Safari Petrol.

Good Luck
