Sold the Audi and the Poor Disco 2 and got something that is a compromise.

Excuse the bodgy UHF antenna install I am waiting for a Bull Bar to do it properly.
I will be setting this up as my 4x4 / Tourer with All terrain tyres, Snorkel, Bull Bar, Rock Sliders, Underbody Armour, Roof Rack etc

D2 not good enough any more? :p

I've come to like these more and more since a friend got one after his trouble with a defective Discovery Sport. Looks very plush inside.

D2 Was getting a bit long in the tooth with 380,000KM on the clock. Also while I enjoyed offroading in it, I hated travelling to where the track was in it, especially when towing the camper.

Did some offroading and had an oopsie. Thats what I get for taking highway tyres into mud.







Tried to get up this muddy hill and back kicked sideways into a big Rock.

Too many and yet not enough
At least you're wheeling it! Gonna get it fixed or just leave it as a badge of honor?

TDV6?

Hmm this is a bit out dated.

Alright so since last post, Full Rhino Rack roof tray, currently used to hold the Awning, Maxtrax, Radio antennas, 40'' LED lightbar and a 110W solar panel which helps keep the dual battery system topped up. Also Fitted some BFG KO2 All Terrain tyres.




The Dual battery system is powering the 50L fridge and electrical setup at the rear drawers as well as camping lights and 400w inverter.

Looks fantastic, that's how it should be done. I've seen your videos, it's very capable. I would still be worried about the heavy reliance on electronics when out in the bush but I can see the Snap-on computer so it shouldn't be much of a worry.

That's a proper bloody off-roader! I see Wranglers and pickups here in FL with 18,000 LED light-bars and snorkels and big chrome wheels under 33" heavy-duty off-roading tires. I can promise you with wheels like that, thought, they don't see a lick of dirt.

Your car, on the other hand, it's done properly, and is used properly.

Bugger me that fuel's cheap, the equivalent of 83p a litre. Is it common for a / to be used instead of a decimal point in Oz?
