Was that before or after the lifts on the truck Bobby?
This posting may have been helpfull, on the other hand probably not... Either way, I may have had drink when posting it in which case it's probably not as helpfull as it could have been

Work safe, and remember all technical problems can be resolved with a hammer, the trick is knowing where to hit it and how big a hammer to use (I often find it may also help to have a spare bit in the shed to replace the bit you have just mullered ;) )

Work in Progress (or not as the case may be) I give you.... 'O-no' the truck.

Comments on 'O-no' the truck may be left here

that was with a 2 inch body lift, 2 inch suspension lift and 31's and a snorkel.

Dont worry, I cant see us even attempting it. I have re-done the whole route to take in the shallow river Rib fords and Dunmow ford. A revised overlay has been sent to those that asked for it.
