Hello Guys,

I am at Ceduna caravan park after a successful negotioation of Googs Track. I have a mate here with a 90 series Prado and the wife is not happy as the "Jesus Bar" has dislocated itself from the dashboard.

We need some assistance in how to put it back on without a complete removal/replacement of the dashboard. It seems too have unscrewed from the captive nuts.

For those that don't know what a "Jesus Bar" is, it is the grab rail on the passenger side of the dash that the wife grabs hold of as you go over a large dune saying "OH JESUS!"

Regards
Muddy

Have you tried removing the glove box and then get to the bolts at the back of the grab rail. That is how it can be done with the 80 series L/C. Possibly the same with the Prado
Cheers

Do you think Jesus rose early on Easter Sunday or had a bit of a sleep in? I figure he rose early since he hadn't really done much the previous two days. Then again, the crucifiction may have been a bit stressful.

G'day JD,

Lets just say that there were 6 vehicles in the convoy.....

Pesty's 60 series with trailer......stuck on a dune and had to have another couple of goes......

Muddy's Prado (no trailer)......failed to proceed over one dune....

Another Prado (with trailer)...(this is the one that the Jesus bar fell off).....failed to get over a dune; had to be snatched by Brew69 in his over-laden GQ.....

Mitsubishi Pajero (no trailer)....no problems other than a stuffed highway tyre (Pesty's FIL).....

Roachie's 5.5tonne Patrol + Ultimate combination.....uneventful trip!!!!

Gotta love those Toyotas....hahahahaha

Cheers

Roachie

Hi Rochie

Now, now, now Mr Rochie..........that's not fair!
(I do like your choice of words though)

Now to the real story..........
If Muddy were driving at the time then I have no doubt that the Prado would've had NO trouble in floating over that HUGE dune.
To tell the true and correct version........I was driving......my first ever on the Googs and I did quite well until THAT dune.
I choose to abort and let a more skilled driver (well.......I have to say something nice as "HE" will read this) ease the Prado back down a little way on the very steep windy dune and as you saw with your own eyes the Prado crusied on up and over without a miss.

Shoosh Ms Doe.

I never miss a chance to bag the Kadina member of the Pink Nissan Mafia.

Just p i s s ed that I wasn't there, but in Wonthaggi on Bass Strait where it blew a howling gale for three days, fairly precipitated down in torrential showers and was freezing cold.

Thanks all.

Not sure where the truth lies here but you obviously had an enjoyable trip and that's what I most want to hear. The Patrol will look after the rest...............LOL

Hi JD

Oh, the Googs was good, well I thought so!
The track in some parts was quite narrow but the scenery and landscape colours were very eye catching. We saw very little wildlife. The days were cool in the morning, warmer during the day and cooler again at night. It was raining just as we were coming out of the Googs so the track might've got some rain on it
We went from North to South and really had no trouble. The dunes were quite easy, but there are a few softer sand ones. If you are going from South to North you will find bumpy sections as you are climbing up the dunes where people had not let their tyres down. There are some patches of corrugation but to me there were rather mild, I hardly noticed them. I'm sure if I have missed something the guys will piece in the missing pieces.
Just a word of caution though, not everyone was on Channel 18 or had a radio so be aware of that when taking on the dunes if you are the lead 4BY.
Hope you have a great time, we did and I hope to do it again.

Thanks Muddies Doe

Most informative! Can't wait. Yes rain might be an issue - we're keeping an eye on it - will add to the experience I'm sure.

Hi Brew

The only reason you got the little job was because you were in front of Dick and Margaret.

Truth is that if they (ie: tojos and their poor bloody owners) want to get to most of the remote places a "real 4x4" can get to, they HAVE to be strapped to the back of a Nissan!!!!! hahaha

Hi Brew & Roachie

Oh come on let's face it, anything hanging off a Nissan would have to be an improvement.............LOL

Hi Lucy

I try and not miss a beat either in giving the guys a serve whenever I can.
Hope your time away was an enjoyable one though, regardless of the weather.
