U400 spotted at Mercedes in Centurion two weeks ago.

I didn't know there were any U400's in SA?
According to one of the guys at Mercedes I asked about this mog, the company has at least two U400's in the country.

Mogster - are you sure it's a 404? The pic is a bit small, but the rims look to me like they could be 416 disc brake rims?

It's a crime what they did to the poor 411...
I agree. It looks more like a 416.
Sa for the 411! I think it looks quite cool. Maybe the body was completely rusted away and then a neew body was rebuilt. As you can see the vehicle is in Natal.

A 404 that was build into a game viewer by Daan Conroy 10 years ago and sold to a game lodge. Daan still has all the specs that he used as well as time spend and cost on record. The Mog is now up for sale but needs a rebuild as it stands

411.110 found in Pretoria a while ago.

It was already butchered and ran on a Toyota 2C Diesel. Aircleaner on the side is from a tractor.

Check how the pedals were changed as the engine bay ran out of space - steering also adapted to meet the space problem.

Last status - went to a game farm as a toy - current status is unkown.

While on diving holiday in warmer water of Sodwana bay there was much to drool over (and with that I am not just referring to the tropical or large game fish we saw underwater).

My holiday pics look a bit sad as all my underwater footage and camera got drowned :cry:eek:n the 3d dive and whole holiday I was left with just tractor pics on my cell...

Inbetween all the mayhem of dive boats being launched, jostling with fisherman launching and tractors to many to count, Lorette (eagle eye) spotted this one after our first dive!
Also spotted en route to the reserve was this tractor in th 45 min q to beach
