Hi and welcome to the forum, it's a nice place to be you can ask any advice on here and someone will nearly always

Well hopefully you should now have a picture of Henry and thanks to tom mac for pm on how to do pictures.

Again henry standard apart from slight lift and AT's as Jas will know it is a struggle to get bits for cans in the UK.

It's a 'tin' model, making it a tin can! Razz

Bet you've never heard that one before? Well, not in the past five minutes anyway.

What event was the 2011 sticker for?

ok 2.9crdi manual and part time 4wd done just over 100k as regards mileage, and the event was this years Mac4x4 challenge where I ran most of the event minus a rear damper which had snapped. Great event and ended up in Ireland this year
OME suspension giving 40mm lift and ironman torsion bars, have not been able to get snorkle yet, that will depend if I hang on to this vehicle, looking to change to possibly a lower mileage terracan, Patrol, or maybe a disco, not sure will depend on cash. As regards trip will be taking wife and kids so vehicle needs to be good size, also I will need to have a trailer depends on how many mods I can do with my present one, for minimum cost.
Also a picture from this years Mac in Galway.

Sounds like a good laugh in what ever vehicle you take. The trailer sounds good, there is a topic on that in the main chat somewhere.
If you want the snorkel speak to Anton @ OEC International, I cant recall all the info but I Paid around £180 for the item. Strong, sleek (hidden by pilliar when looking inside the vehicle) and works.

Ive owned quite a fue vehicles in my short years including the patrol & disco, I owned both before my Can, The Patrol (3.0) is better off road due to the rear locker but drinks fuel even on the road, the disco was ok, I was unfortunate to have a fue problems with this vehicle and the 300tdi on an auto trans really had no power, but parts are cheap and with a little lift and AT tyres they do look cool!
I like what I got, for me it tows well, has lots of torque and returns good fuel which is handy at these prices.

But what ever you do & where ever you go take some pics, we love pics! thumbsup
