The way fuel prices are going, it may be a good option! It has roughly the same top speed as my 4.2Dti Patrol so a positive there and plenty of fuel and maintenance saving also! :) Michael

There's time to rest when you're dead,
Get out and do something instead!

Allein, I thick you would firstly need to get the EO Forum's view on the size of solar panel and deep cycle battery to run the radio and the 80 litre fridge that you will probably want to add with the Coopers or BFG's. By the time that argument has concluded you will possibly be reconsidering the offer. lol

Doesn't appear to have much solar capacity to charge a battery to run the CB but a nice touch anyway. Just the shot to call the truckies around if they get a bit intense.
I guess the push bike genny on the front tyre should do though as long as the operator keeps his little legs pumping.

The front coil over shockies should give a good ride and I am a big fan of increasing tyre diameter rather than them ridiculous fatties.

And the whole package is topped off with Armstrong Power Steering. None of that poofy ADC ESC BS.
