have been offered a mondeo at a bargain price that really is a deal not to be missed but will have to get rid of one of my other cars and i cant make up my mind. Ive got a 99 plate frontera that has just passed mot with a few minor advises that i use for w/end work so is a like a 4 wheel drive wheelbarrow and a fairly tidy 06 saab estate that if i use for work will soon become wrecked neither probably worth more than £800 but the saab does drive beautifully and would be happy to drive anywhere but i do sometimes breath a sigh of relief when the fronty arrives lol.Arrrgghh one minute its one then the other .

Suspension lift is a piece of cake. Wind up the bars, pop a couple of springs in the back. 3-4 hours and you're off road ready.

Yep as Mick said just to do a suspension lift. Winters coming you may need the fronty.
