Welcome Atlas! cheers

A "VW T5 4 motion TDi well kitted for overlanding" - that's different, never seen one of them before. Obviously question for me is ... is there enough ground clearance?

Piccies please, although the forum software won't let you post photos until about 5 posts. We'll be patient. Smile

Hi, It is a very capable vehicle.I have driven a Land Cruiser GX 100 for 12 years and done a couple 100k kms in Africa and this will do 98 %.Better in sand and really only can't rock crawl which I don't do any way. Very comfortable and getting there takes half the time at half the cost!
I have Siekel dakar suspension and bigger wheels so clearance a good 250mm.
Will post pics when big brother allows !

Can't argue with that. You've obviously been there and done it, so know the capabilities of your vehicle and what you want to to with it. Nice one, looking forwarded to more chat/what you've been up to!

Hello & welcome to the forum. Good the vs stuff.
I have recently replaced my terracan with th VW Amorok 2.0 auto last week. Great 4wd traction. Good to meet another VW owner.
