A time to Step down :(

Recommended Posts

Well it's a sad time to say but after a long chat last night (It's not me you're all not that lucky 😄 )

Dogconker is saying goodbye to the XV on Saturday. He's kindly going to stay as Moderator until a replacement is found. Which also brings me onto something else, but talk about that in the Mod room before anything public goes up. (To do with maybe getting more mods) No secrets here 🙂

Bought a Ssangyong pickup to tow the caravan and carry our kit, didn’t need anything fancy but it cost around £15,000 less than an equivalent mitsi or ford pickup and then I got £4k off list so saved almost £20k on an equivalent well known branded pickup. It’s built for towing so is ideal for my needs plus a 7yr nose to tail warranty.

The new musso uses their own engine and an Aisin 6 speed auto,  the mercedes transmission and engine apparently was crap. It’s a 2.2TD 180hp and 400Nm which is why I wanted it for towing

I wemt from the shortest in my class at 9yrs old to the tallest in the school at 6’3” by age 11. I went through clothes like hot dinners, my brothers never got to wear them because they didn’t reach 6’ until they were in their teens.

@Dogconker

good luck with the new car, I had an Isuzu Trooper 3.1D many years ago and that would tow my van up the side of the house if I asked it too.  I’m sure this will e very similar, good luck with it.
