- Ok so what good reliable 4×4 and not look like a chav
To follow on from some recent threads
Been looking to change the other halfs defender but what to look at
Don’t want to look like a chav and don’t want anything that keeps breaking
Does need to tow around 3 ton though
So far shogun of some sort ?Posted 5 years ago
Not a d3 as they seem no better than what I have unless you buy a nearly new oneyunkiMember
I wonder if there’s a Chav cloning program in operation, somewhere.
the guy in the red jacket is like the queen ant (queen chav) and lays on average 400 eggs per day..
if you look closely, you can see from his expression that he’s just laying another one there.. the other chavs around him are worker chavs and will be feeding the eggs with spliffs and white lightening..Posted 5 years agoThe Flying OxMember
We’ve got a XJ-series Jeep Cherokee Sport, which is pretty rugged and very comfortable. Good for 5000lbs towing, not sure that’s quite enough. It’s pretty reliable though, although I have changed the radiator, serpentine belt and water pump – small radiator leak, and I thought I’d do it all at once. Took me all of about 3 hours, and the trickiest bit was unscrewing all the various covers. Depends how mechanically minded you are, I suppose.Posted 5 years ago

It comes complete with a tailgate pad, you can hang 4 or 5 MTB’s off the back, I’ll see if I can find a pic and edit it in.
Easy removed too
Yep does depend if you’re genuinely using it to transport the bikes to and from a trail area, I have left it here and there for an hour or so, but the boys up at Herts made me take the bikes off the back and take them inside whilst we went for an Indian, so it does depend on your locality I guess.
Then you can run a lock cable through them and vans ain’t necessarily any safer it somebody is aware of what’s inside, they’re just more visible initally I guess which if anything hones your own sense of security, I guess having been a committed pick up user these past ten years or so you get into a routine to suit, funnily enough I’m thinking of returning to using a van for other reasons, but I do prefer a pick up for the sheer convenience of other stuff you can do with it.Posted 5 years ago
BWHAAHAAHAAHAHAHAHA transit van – fack off …
terrible for towing across
grassy fieldswet tarmac.
i remember watching a mate turn up to trial with his rangey on the back of his transit – couldnt even get up the slope into the event with the transit.
rolled the rangey off the back and still couldnt get the transit up. towed his transit up the hill with the rangey in the end.Posted 5 years ago
Having ended up with a Forrester here in Oz (missus made the choice before I got here) I did consider a Ute (pick up) as a second go anywhere bike vehicle. But after seeing limited dry load space and all that I was straight back to saving for the van. Bikes in & locked away with the tools etc. Dry on the inside and the insurance considers it all locked away inside. The roads here are fine in the end no real need for anything mental (don’t tell the locals)Posted 5 years ago
