Ja for sure.
The first time I went my front CV was disconnected but I didn't know until I hit the sand - I was good in 3x4.
With really flat tires I think you will be fine in the morning so best go early while the sand is still dewy.
I would also be interested to see how your diff lock vehicle handles and I would like to see your lift - I have 2x 2wd's that I would like to lift.

Where did you get the diff lock box from?
Is it a modification by Ellerman's?

If you plan on going to the dunes again any time soon would you mind if I join you? I don't have a Syncro, just a 2WD 2.5 Kombi but with a difflock and small suspension lift. I would love to find out how it compares to the real thing.

Thanks

That would be great, thanks Bruce. I'm not expecting anything too spectacular from 2WD, just want to get a feel for the limits of it's capability.

Dean Levin supplied the difflock box, (He's a hell of a salesman, I went to his place for a doorlock and came out with a difflock!) but I assume it was prepared by Ehrlmans. I'm very pleased with it, it's a 5-speed with standard Microbus ratios and it has the factory brace. The main case is Syncro but it has the 2WD front end so no propshaft coupling. Russel Johnston installed it for me last year and also welded on an external spare wheel carrier. Later he did the suspension lift using a set of spacers I bought from Brickwerks in the UK, and fitted one of Ian Fairley's beautiful long-range fuel tanks.

So, whenever it suits you next to go to the dunes, please call me. 082 5035305. I'll bring a towrope!

Cheers
Colin
