I ain't interested in top ending this now! If anyone wants a race I'll meet you at the foot of snowdon wink

Although I had 107mph with the old engine Tony.

Gear ratios are much lower now so I expect it'll fly off the mark wink

Don't see why not? It all depends on how stable the truck is. I know someone with a Toyota Hilux which is capable of 115mph, but he doesn't like to take it past 85 coz it starts to wobble, I'll prob get about 75 out of this now, which is fast enough for me coz it won't be goin on the motorways much.

Looking great there jimbo smile

Why on the trailer though ?

Tip : Start a new topic in Mods n Styling !

Call it Jimbo4x4 : Mods
And show us it in order the before and after.
Then if you have any other mods added you can
add it to the same topic and we can see your
4x4 shine as more mods are added.

You can use the new topic as a reference for your self to look back at when things were done.

Let us know why you decided to have all the work done, pro's and con's...

Hope this helps...

Its looking great mate, sure to stand out.

Because... The battery ain't yet powerful enough to start it, it sounds like a tractor (no 'zaust), the air filter isn't linked up (got an induction kit to fix that!), The rad holds no water due to a missing plug (can you help me Scoob?), and it'll also need an electric fan eventually.

That enough of a reason? tease

Thanks for the tips on the topic, I will have to sort that after I've had some sleep wink

Thanks again peeps for all the posotive comments smile smile
