  1. yes that's the one, dribble dribble. Transit with welded diff and ag tyres? P38 may take D2 axles and allow an LT230 but we are getting into major effort for something that's agricultural by conception. Will.
  2. does your mate still have that 6x6 iveco with the winch under the back? I saw some pics on arb talk a few years ago and it looked very cool! I think the P38 will be too sort in the wheelbase but that's nothing a few bits of box and a welder can't sort, just buy a prop and extend to suit. Think about how you are going to do the cab many hours can be lost or gained here... Personally unless offroadyness is required I would buy an old transit and whack it on that or a 12ft ifor and bolt it to that and or make it demount, flow fit do Honda engine/pump packages that are cheap and make life very simple. Will.
  3. Can you not remove the park switch and press it yourself or even doctor the wiring so you can manually park the wipers to narrow down the culprit.
  4. Period look: 2.5 NA Period power: V8 Easy, cheap, powerful enough : 200/300 tdi ****s and giggles:td5 om606 m57 6bt LS chevvy.... @JimAttrill I'm sure you have some horror stories of tdi cam belts, split header tanks failed lift/vacum pumps? Sure TD5s have their issues but they are pretty bloody good in my experience for reliability/cost/power/weight/economy of course not to everyones taste/job but as an allrounder... Will.
  5. Mine is on the inside of the light cover in the tub of my truck cab next to the 7 pin socket with an old mudflap over the top. Also has a blanking plug and cable gland.
  6. Put an Anderson socket at the back, very very handy for jump starting and powering tipping trailers or trailer winches etc one of the most useful things you can do to a landcover IMHO
  7. Not exactly a multitool but I never leave the house without my opinel No.7, had it about 9 years now and its around half worn, for the money they are unbeatable IMHO it gets used everyday even if its just cleaning my nails.
  8. second hand snap on, cheap and you can get parts should you do something silly.
  9. Standard height springs and shocks with anti roll bars- when you add you weight its going to be high up so extra rolly pollyness will need to be cancelled out. After the antiroll bars I would perhaps go for a higher end shock OME or Koni and save on the springs, standard landrover springs are only £15 each and can be swapped in minutes on the rear once your new shocks are on with plenty of coppaslip on the ends. Its a cheap way to find out what suits. Will.
  10. I personally would avoid many hassles and ditch the side doors just entering through the rear like 3rd row on a disco, hell even use disco seats they are comfortable enough with extra legroom. I have a tub with knackered utility roller door in the side you could cut up for the bulkhead I would swap for a hi cap bulkhead, I'm only in Leeds if you didn't want to butcher your other tub. A 110roof cut down the middle and widened would keep proportions, for the roof not too far from standard. Will.
  11. A nice Epco transmission jack would be ideal and give you something to refurbish or repaint if your into that kind of thing, also you know old diesel forklifts are pretty cheap all things considered...
  12. Dig a pit in. even if you don't use it for servicing you can use it to store stuff!
  13. Perhaps some chemical metal could have been used to glue some studs or even bolts back in to get you home?
  14. I have put gas struts on a few things and normally just wing it regarding bracketery, having too many variables seems to cause havoc so I normally start with what struts I have to hand and work from there. Will.
  15. Two hinges two gas rams and some 20mm flat bar to make a frame screwed to the cupboard and door?
