Re: Even more capable Fortuner 4x4 | Suspension lift kit, manually locking rear differential & more

OP, it seems there are two Arb part numbers for the 1st Gen Fortuner lockers, which I hope to order from Australia.
One of them is for the earlier model Fortuner sold in S. Africa with Dana axles.

Any chance you or Lambda would know the rear diff gear ratio? That is the only way Arb in Australia can help me source the right part, my VIN does not help as the first Fortuner sold in Aus was the 2016 model.

Re: Even more capable Fortuner 4x4 | Suspension lift kit, manually locking rear differential & more

@Abhayshanu recently saw this beast of yours in Manali. Was amazed by it. I own a 2009 SFX and Iím planning for a suspension upgrade. I wanna ask-
1. Why Dr. Nano? Why not OME or Ironman?
2. Do you have the foam cell or the Nitogas one?
TIA

Why. You have official ARB guys here. Buy from them and get Indian warranty. If you still want to go for Grey import, ask ARB for the correct part, they ship to their dealers so they know which one.

Updates from the last time.

Locker works great. Changed from MT to AT for long distance touring. Installed Diff Drop to help reduce CV Joint stress. Installed some more lights and moved around others for more visibility.

I think he meant changing from Mud Terrain tyres to All Terrain tyres. Changing from a manual to an automatic does not seem like an endeavour worth putting an effort.

Haha. True that. Surprised that I missed it.
