Hi Guys



Thanks for all your advice over the past weeks

I have narrowed my search for a 190 Lt Long Range Tank, and RWC for my TLC 60 Series down to 4WD Systems in Adelaide. The LRT is about $856 and the RWC is $636 plus $78 shipping to Melbourne. Are these my best options for long touring range?

My first question is has anyone bought these products throught 4WD Systems, any problems? Are they good quality?


Are these hard to fit to my 60?



Any feedback about 4WD Systems products would be good.



Thanks

Fitting after market fuel tanks can be very frustrating. Best done on a hoist with a transmission jack ready to hold the tank once it has been placed in positioned. A good mate to help would also be good.
The original tank will have to come out first with all the plumbing and wiring being removed first. Also remove all the fuel.

If you are supplied with instructions on where the breather hoses and equalising hoses go (if required) that will help. You will also have to extend or bend the float on the sender unit so that you can get a correct fuel gauge reading.

With after market tanks some drilling might be required so that the new mounting brackets can be bolted to the chassis.

Once the tank is in place the filler hoses have to be fitted and unless you have very long fingers and hand that can twist to any angle this part of the fitting may take a while.

As for the rear wheel carrier, at the price quoted it would be a bolt on over the bumper type. Again if you have the detailed instructions it should not be a big job, just time consuming, and you will need the long fingers and the flexible hand.

As for the quality of there products I could not say, but the fitting of the tank and wheel carrier are about the same regardless of what brand.

As Ive said before the LRT we fitted to our old 60 got a crack in it ,on top of the front mounting bracket ,it had been welded on the sides and across the bottom but not across the top.we spent a week in kalgoorlie trying to get it fixed,the opposite lock one seems better as its made from thicker material.
Its not easy to fit ,but with a couple of helpers its not to bad.

I have just today received a 4wd systems lrt,quality of finish is very good , I don`t know how the fit is yet.......
Just to let you know I ordered and was charged for the tank at the
beginning of march - almost 2months - and was told many different times I would receive the tank in a couple of days......
A little bit of shirt pulling I suspect.
Still looks the goods.
