    Tick off another on the "officially recovered" by list. At this stage I could only tick Land Rover as the other appliance drivers normally chicken out when we go somewhere, or I must just get out more.......
    Looks like good fun.

    Hahahaha!!!

    Look at you!!!

    Seems like just the other day you were telling us a 4x2 could do the same as a 4x4!!!

    Since then you got a proper 4x4 - I have to say, I was impressed, 4x2 straight to a landy is a leap of note!!!

    Also ditched smoking and other things!!!

    We are so proud of you

    Well done, that looks like real fun

    Nope, hu-uh never did that...... Said that some people might as well buy a 4x2, because I did whith my 4x2 d what they did, with their 4x4s, because they were afraid/too stingy/too dumb/too anal/Too uninformed....

    But thanks in any case Alex.

    Cool,

    Karee Krans was the first 4x4 trail I ever did -

    In a one week old RANGE ROVER SPORT with 20" RIMS and 40 profile ROAD TYRES.

    I got thru quite nicely thank you, - only cost me 4 tyres and 4 rims - and keeping with all the 4's, R44K later new rims and tyres.

    The pic in my Avitar is on that day after the trail.

    But I have learned a thing or two.

    EDIT - Added two pics of Karee Krans

    Remember Fusee (Andrewfus) gave us 2x4's without 6 inch nails that were better than 4x4's.

    I know, cool.

    It's funny when you look back and think what you thought you knew.

    And I know I dont know everything. Everytime I go out I learn something, either about me, my vehicle or just 4x4 issues in general.
