Well we went to tixover today...only got the 2.8 stuck twice...the 1st time I sat it on the front nudge bars and the towbar...wasn't going anywhere lol. And the second time was tyres and a small stump in one of the ruts :evil: if I had the special tracks on I might not of got stuck at all.

Damage report:
Nudge bar needs some attention because that gets berried at every operturnity.
Drivers sill isn't as straight as it was thanks to a small stone I didn't notice while turning left...the bolder got sucked under the wishbone and ended up wedged between the chassis and the sill. Not that bad but would be better if it didn't happen.
Oh and the alternator has stopped again...but we'll gloss over that one before robfog reads this :roll: hay rob! Heh :D

Oh and we bumped into a P reg 2litre sport. Had big wheels on that rubbed on the front bumper and may have been lifted slightly but forgot to ask.

And pics/vids will be posted later
