    Front wheel studs

    I've snapped a couple of wheel studs and wondered if anybody not a million miles away had any genuine studs lying around, Can get new delivered but that wont be till wednesday or thursday which leaves fitting them before lincomb a bit of a bugger. P.s. Half a million miles away is acceptable :)

    Winch installation

    So, i bought a goodwinch 12 c with a bow 2 motor from the stafford show a few weeks ago (no vat) and at the weekend @Rosy came round to help fit it. After much faffing about trying to remove my winch bumper Rosy came up with the idea of removing the grill and lights to gain access. We had to...

    AJ4wd outfitters

    I'd just like to say what a helpful guy Andrew Leech at AJ4wd outfitters is. Bought the standard 80 roof rack from them, very happy with it until I got my roof tent.

    New (to me) back bumper and swingout wheel carrier

    Having taken the truck out a few times i'd caused some damage to the rear end. The arches were rusted so there wasn't really anything holding the mud flaps and rear quarters of the bumpers up. So, amongst many things on the never ending shopping list was a big steel bumper. Having spoken to a...

    So I bought myself a go pro

    Didn't know where to put this so... I bought myself a GoPro hero 5. Its teeny tiny! Here my first vid. Nothing exciting, just wanted to see how it came out. Seems to make me look like I'm speeding everywhere but I think that's the mode I had it in. Engine sounds good though! :)
