MogLite Posted August 14, 2007 Share Posted August 14, 2007 I've not done much 4x4 driving of late, the reasons have been building MogLite, family and work commitments etc etc. It was brought home to me this morning, when I was sorting through some digital pics on my laptop. From about 2000-2005 I was out at least once a month, first in the Camel Disco, and then in the Ibex. But I've noticed as the vehicles I own get more and more capable - the less and less I use them I've completely lost the competition bug, but damn it was nice to mess about at a site day, or bimble around on a green-lane. Got me thinking about how to re-live those "glory years". My Ibex is a non starter, as I need to be able to take my kids out too. My Isuzu is way too straight to be bouncing off of trees. I came to the conclusion that the BishTail is about the right comprimise between cost, performance and usability Comfortable four seater Reasonable suspension and grip Simple, easily repaired and economical Quite nimble and light Simple winch setup. I'm currently thinking with a pair of LandCruiser/Patrol axles on it - it'd be a real good weekend warrior capable of 90% of what a site day has to throw at it, and yet remain fun and a challenge to drive well. Maybe a Bobtail will replace some of my fleet sometime anyone wanna part-ex one for an Ibex.... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
