It is easier than the states, but still a pain so far as parts and stuff unless you live near to an importer (which I do now, but won't soon). Ground clearance as well as ability to pack more crap around make the fozzie more suited to my impending adventure in the north :)

Less good at the corners, but more good at the 90cm snowfalls and the like.

Roger roger! :thumbsup:

Yeah we don't get 90cm of snow very often, hell even 9cm would close most of the city! :eh:

We are a bit spoilt for choice with 2nd hand cars here, we have all those maaaaad JDM things to pick from.

I do know that there's no way I can afford it, but it's nice to dream.

I think the front end looks good on the Highlanders.

Was hoping when I opened this that you had purchased a unimog and was showing it off.

I imagine that's what my old (sadly gone) pickup would have looked like if it had been strung by a bee and suffered an allergic reaction.
It's all swollen and puffy!

Be interesting to see how the 2.8 goes in it, the current engine is quite nice to drive.

Wonder how it will go head to head with the next ranger, I'm still 40,000 away from test driving again :-(

Just got back from the pub following a ride with a mate.
It was pretty cold and we had a few more than we should have.
My friend told me that his wife was coming to pick him up and of course she would give me a ride home and we could fit my bike on the rack and I would be able to squeeze in the back with the kids.
His wife shows up with a roof rack and my monster mudguards mean that I wouldn't be able to fit my commuter onto the roof rack so I had to wobble home in the cold.
The question is whether it would be impolite for me to complain about his wife's rack???
