Automotive

To tell you the truth, nothing feels quite like being behind the wheel. The road, the mountains, the sights, the smells…the feel of a cross country trip dwarves most things in our daily lives. Some prefer to travel via bike, others by car, but in order to experience everything that our portion of the southern hemisphere has to offer, nothing can beat a 4x4.

The braking systems of today mainly use what is known as a brake pad. Although there's a different type of brakes that make use of a shoe, the former has prevailed because of how well they perform. Disc brake's main components, the pads, are what presses on the wheel when you engage the brake pedal. The pedal sends brake fluid to the brake calliper which then pushes the pistons which apply the force from the pedal to the pads themselves. While there are a lot of different components in a disc brake, the pads are the most vulnerable as they come in direct contact with the spinning wheel. Just like you would replace your exhaust for performance gains you would do the same with brake pads for a different reason. Here the reason is because the pads are no longer useful.

Regardless of what the issue is, truth is that the storage puzzle in a ute is put aside and this doesn’t always work in favour of all your cargo.
Having the most important spare parts in your vehicle at all times is as important as having fuel in it because you never know when something might go wrong.

These parts are not as commonly replaced as tires are, for example, but they are certainly important regarding safety and convenience.

4x4 vehicles and turbo-diesel engines go together like bread and butter. They've been the engine of choice for most adventure seekers and off-road enthusiasts for a long time now, and all for a couple of good reasons.
