Thanks :) and that's a little bit of a problem. It looks awesome.

Still has bog standard engine, gearbox and suspension though. Sometimes while polishing it I wish I had taken the less homosexual route suggested earlier :roll:

We has sound :D well, sort of.

Bought a cheap ($25 or so) and cheerful amplifier and small outdoor speakers, surprisingly audible over the roar of the engine :) just hook up and equally cheap and cheerful mp3 player and no stereo to worry about, a plus when you have no roof.

Ah, but how would you distinguish your own oil spots from those of other vehicles :roll:

Here it is with spare wheel fitted on the bonnet and soon-to-be-removed soft top as Summer is around the corner :D

Very nice the both of you. Makes me a bit sad about selling the Landy.

Crna, how do you go with no weight in the tray? I do a lot of spotlighting in a BT50, and even taking a 35% slope in high 4 just makes the wheels spin. Then I took it out with about 3/4 ton of sand in the back, and it just flew up the same slope.

Also nearly flipped a quad on myself on the same slope, so it's pretty steep

hahah keep the eski full of beer!!

nar shes got front and rear lockers that helps, each tyre is on the heavy side of 60kg so that might help and iv got some tall as gears in the diffs 4.6 so its crawls slow! also have draws under the tray full of cast iron cooking gear and recovery gear! and 80l sub tank right in the middle too

most important is keep off the right foot! if you do lift a tyre in the air their go lots of traction also when it hits back down good chance at blowing a cv

also what kind of tyres you got? AT and highway rubber just dont bite in chain up if you don't want two sets! i even use chains in the few snow trips we've done
