Wow the wee skinny wheels cut through everything !
It's unreal what them old machine can go through, must have solid diff
That looks like one boneshaker of a ride. Not too disimilar to the Wrangler though
I love how they roll it over twice the opposite direction to get it back on its wheels and then carefully wind the windows back up. Cracker.
@Coog would it be best to start a new thread for the 26th February?
I've got the day "booked" and they've made a event page on Facebook for one to say there going.
For ones who don't have Facebook there happy with me just notifying them.
Link to the event page
Glad you edited that to say the link isn't working. I thought I had been indefinitely banned from even viewing public Facebook posts there...
Got the link working, had to remove a bit of it.
I tried to invite you on Facebook but your name wouldn't come up. Noticed that before when I went to tag you in stuff lol.
I actually can't get into your profile, what the hell did you do? I'm not believing the story you told me lol
@Alan_B @car life @Ollie interested?
I'll edit the thread title sure instead of starting a new one. Will get it added to the calendar too (if not done already)
Got a spare seat @Coog ?
Yep - no screaming this time
lmao I'll try not to I'll put a reminder in my phone
Guys any cheap jeeps with test around 1k? If I get something I'll be there lol. My Disco I took to the last RMS offroading day sadly needed a fair bit doing so passed it onto a mate.
Some cheap Jeeps....
OPEL/VAUXHALL FRONTERA SPORT 4x4 Year 2000 ONLY £385 o.n.o | in Newtownards, County Down | Gumtree
95 diahatsu fourtrak 2.8 tdx | in Ballymena, County Antrim | Gumtree
Honda CRV £330 ono | in Newry, County Down | Gumtree
Those Frontera's are good craic. The later ones aren't as well protected underneath as the older ones but aside from that are a very decent 4x4 for the money.
I imagine they'd be great off road if ya weren't stupid enough to go off roading on slick road tyres...
Restricted articulation up front but very good on the rear and was rare I got stuck in mine. Surprisingly they don't seem to rust. Mine must have been 20 years old and was absolutely perfect underneath (in the beginning). Think I paid about £150 for it with 3/4 months MOT and sailed it about for a year or so. The only thing that ever broke was the front chassis mounts in the wheel arch from all the jumping but it was easy welded together again (did it about 3 times lol)
By all means a very decent 4x4 by anyones standards and just as good as any other SWB 4x4 with IFS.
That Diahatsu is a cert to be clean rotten. CRV might be OK though
Would love to get something like this myself, could happen yet. My only problem would be where to keep it. As of today there'll be 3 cars at my house
Should be ordering lift kit next week...hopefully get it fitted before this.
Also going to modify my UK standard bumpers to give me a bit more ground clearance haha.
