It came out spot on Rod! :thumbup:

How the heck you came up with it being so precise from my mumbled uncreative brief is beyond me :crazy: :lol:

The more I use it the more pleased I am. I've modified it now so your not having all the credit anyway :think: ......

I place a metal bar across the front lip in windy conditions :lol:

Rod, update on this...well, not your shooting truck but the awning...the awning is absolutely awesome! It's endured some real rough outings. I've outgrown the stone weights and invested in two tent guidelines and two tent pegs. With the guidelines attached to the top bar and fixed to the ground with the pegs the awning can be used in real windy conditions if you park the truck right. I've been meaning to post for ages to say it's brilliant, means I can be out or stay out on nights I'd have well and truly given up. It truly does the job brilliantly! :clap: :thumbup:

Glad to hear it works ok. May be a change of plan on mine, may end up using the Disco seeing as I bought a Range Rover I couldn't resist. :lol: :lol: Disco is now spare but I don't want to sell it as I still really like it. :roll:

If that runs a mini engine and box, and has 4 wheel steer then it must have open diff. So, if it isn't skid steer and it's open diff then it can spin one side and lose traction. An Argo can be true 8 wheel drive by using the steering brakes.
Not for me Phil, think I'm going for TRX500 on PLG tax. My son't just trying to get an agri to plg as we speak so I'll see how that goes. He's just getting it ready for mot with E marked lights and such.
We can use them on shoots and go for the odd greenlane over the plains

:wave: Here is the big brother version Rod :roll:

500cc of Honda would be as you say a rock solid choice Rod, as long as I could pull a single axle cage trailer with about a ton of logs on board back home it would fit the bill and be fine.

Thanks

Sure they came with some American V8 originally, of about 5 ltr. Sucked fuel like it was going out of fashion, hence very poor sales
