Help Guys!
« on: November 13, 2011, 21:15:16 »
Ok.... as a confirmed Land Rver fan I'm feeling a bit weird being in here... but hey ho... I'll press on...

The wife has gone to the dark side and swapped her Range Rover Classic LSE for a Jeep Cherokee(?)/Liberty(?) - Can't tell which cuz I see both names used for two different vehicles that look similar when I browse the US/UK websites. See the pic below for refernce.

Anyways... with Christmas coming up I wanted to look at such things as light bars, snorkels, and other such off-roadery things. But it's a real struggle to find anything.

Can anyone point me in some directions please? BTW... I have already looked at some old posts but wanted to see if there were any new ideas.

Thanks

Skibum

RRB... hello there matey.... Yes.. I know....! Still needs must... we discovered we'd been driving around without an MOT for 7 months! god knows how we missed every ANPR system in the country!

Needs a new rear x-member... frnot edge of bonnet is starting to go.... doors need some attention... and a bloodty good service. Apart from that...

It has a LR fitted (at 55,000m) 4.6.... yes... 4.6!! Original 5 spoke colour coded alloys. Good upper and lower tailgate.... it's a shame really. Would love it to go to a good home (drops a reather heavy hint...!!)
