    Aah, if its all on road / gravel then you should be ok.

    Good Tyres, Maybe a repair kit and pump should be taken along too.

    Sorry, I read it incorrectly.

    I like this. I made one in a National Luna box with 240AH but I find its way over what I need.
    Where did you get the Ammo Box from? I might look at going this route instead.

    I haven't seen this.

    I know there is a bit of a stock shortage.
    On a normal LWB 250 anything over 28k discount is a bargain.
