there not that bad off road
bit bouncy on the road tho with them being leaf springs but not that bad (mind it don't help when you/I stick hilux leaf springs on one)
mines only on 235/75/15 A/Ts and the only time i got it stuck was when i forgot to lock the freewheeling hubs and when i was sat on my chassis (but that time tony/88"hybrid in his 90 got stuck trying to get me out)

here's mine shame its going next month when i get my new car  Roll Eyes

What needa doing for an MOT pass.........

One of the advantages of being a member of any motor club is you usually learn from other members how to maintain and even repair your motor.....most of it is easier than you may expect!

yeah thats why i almost scrapped it i know nothink on  mechanics and thought it was a lost hope but the lads say its not as bad as i though.

main things are new shockers, rear wheel arches need welding then a few little things like rear fog light
