[quote="sunndog"]ah, i thought tractrion control might be a bit posh for it. Still, electric freewheeling hubs are pretty fancy
I'v always took them off landrovers in the past and fitted normal hubs. But every little helps with small engines.

just had a quick google. Well under a ton in weight and 72" wheelbase. obviously forward control so plenty of room in the back. About as wide as an SJ i think.

Might have some parts common with a rascal van too. Cracking lilttle thing :thumbup:[/quote

I have high hopes for it. :thumbup:

It's also has the potential for some bargain motoring.

The tyres were a whopping £40 each and with a bit of shrewd purchasing the filters and fluids to go through the whole thing was about £50; diffs, gearbox, transfer box, engine, the lot!

Eagerly awaiting the V5 now. :x


Cheers

I use my freelander as a shooting truck at the moment,was thinking about trying a quad but didn't fancy the cold.so I settled on a Suzuki jimny ,the only mod I intend to do is remove the windscreen and fit a sheet of Perspex on hinges so I can shoot out of the front,it wont be on the road but left at my main permission.it would be a good mod on your truck clive.

Hi All,

Exciting times...V5 arrived today.

I shall pick up the number plates on the way into work then just have to finish changing the oil in the diffs then I shall be able to have a proper play in the mental little death trap. 8-)


Cheers

:wave: I was praying for nearly ten days earlier on this year that I could borrow or beg for the use of a small cherry picker, the lesbians down the road had some loose gutter brackets above their bedroom window, I had worked it all out in my head and was willingly going to volunteer that it would be no bother at all to be of some help to them. They told their neighbour that it was covered by their house insurance :thumbdown:

Had a smack on the head this morning and was told that I will be having some therapy treatment booked for me as a Christmas present as well by the good woman indoors. She who must be obeyed sneaked up on me while I was watching the two lesbians from down the road walk up the pavement holding hands and cuddling every ten foot or so. Was told to stop dribbling and do something useful. :shock:

Hi All,

Well it's been on the road for a few days now and has 100 or so miles under the wheels. :thumbup:

I've not been off road with it 'yet'. Trying to keep it clean, in case anything gives way and needs mending. No fun to work on something plastered in mud. :lol:

Driving it on the road has been interesting, especially in the wet it can very quickly go from 'great fun' to 'completely terrifying' due to the light weight and mud tyres. :shock: :D

It's massively quicker than the buggy and keeps up with traffic no problems. I even overtook someone last night! :twisted:

Top speed so far has been 55mph and that was plenty quick enough, but it had plenty more to go.

So the getting to and from shooting purpose has been covered. It's quick, comfy enough and the heater is excellent! Just need to give it a gentle off road test now once it dries up a bit. :thumbup:


Cheers





Clive
