Hi new to the site and new to 4x4's.
We have had our 2.4i 1994 LWB for about 3 months now and am loving every minute of it.
It's just hitting to 100,000 and we have had to replace bits and pieces mainly due to what I believe is down to the previous owner having it for 13 years and only doing 300 miles a year and it never being in 4 wheel drive ever in its life and now it's doing 300+ a week across roads and fields and due to living about 250 meters away from the start of Violets lane in water too though I really need to sort out a diy snorkel for it.
Still got front brakes to change as they are low, removing spare wheel carrier tomorrow hopefully as it does my head in that I can't load long lengths of wood/horse jumps in the back and have them hanging out the back and be able to drive along and then it's onto the snorkel and then it's all done until the next thing breaks or gives up.

Welcome to the site and the fun of keeping a Fronty going...
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

Owning a 2.8 is a hobby in it's self...
