    Re: Meat from Caprivi to Botswana

    Best to get 2 x 2 sleeper RTT's. Its not wise fitting a large one (4 sleeper is much longer than Hilux DC load bay) spanning load bay and cab.

    Re: Ineos Grenadier revealed!!

    D-Tox, see you have a "Defender 90 for sale" signature, but the link is dead. Perhaps time to remove that signature.
