  • Hi all

    Long time lurker first time poster.
    We pick our 2016 GX up today. It's 2nd hand with 29k on the clock. Never been off road.
    This is the most expensive car we have ever owned.
    Now to get it ready for Cape York in 4 weeks with the wife and two small boys.

      Welcome to the forum!
      Enjoy the trip to the cape. You've picked a very capable car for the journey.
      I'm sure you and the family will enjoy it.
      Whats your accommodation plans? Are you towing a camper?

        Tenting it.
        We did Cape York in a Hyundai Terracan in 2011. It was great fun.

          Welcome to the forum. Clever word play for your forum handle. Reminds me of Benny Hill's skit character Cookie Boy....

                Hi Fortuner Cookie, may I ask where you obtained your Fake Carbon, or if any one else has obtained a cover here in Aust for rear bumpa, to protect from scratches.

                            ive got the stock air filter , carried a spare with me to the Cape last year , blew it out with compressed air at Bamaga and replaced it when i got home , along with cleaning the whole intake tract and the MAF sensor.

                              At Coen now.
                              its very dusty so.
                              We have been taking the foot off the accelerator when we go past another vehicle or when we are in their dust trails. I do this to suck as little air possible into the engine.
