Re: Leigh Lifted Vitara on 35s

One fussy MOT tester or one that is clued up on the rules [/quote] "We must take our vehicle to a savvy MoT tester !" has been said by me, never, nor my friends in the last 25 years of owning modified vehicles.

Leigh Lifted Vitara on 35s

I'm about to lose the garaging of this thing as my mum has just sold her house so it has to sell or come out to the USA. Therefore I'm putting this here to both list the mods and see how much interest I get. I've been out of the country for over a decade & I have no idea what it could be worth? Here...

Re: LJC 160

I don't know when the axle last got shown some love so while it was in pieces I decided to give it a complete new set of seals & bearings. Good time to inspect the RCVs, which looked fine. Heck they look spectacular. Any one with 413 axles looking to upgrade.... Here are the part numbers (as nobody ...

Re: GonZookin 2019: 02 & 03 August

The end of Death Trap... thankfully. I came here to rock crawl but this trail is insane. Thankfully it was dry but in the rain it would be impossible. Luckily the rain held off. 35s on locked HD axles & Wrangler springs. It was moving in 2nd low thanks to a 6:1 t-case. This isn't a photo, it's actua...
