Vehicles (17 Jan 2019)

You can now add the vehicles you own to your profile as little icons that appear in your profile and alongside your posts.
This is a bit of an experiment. Take a look under the "REWARDS" menu across the top of the screen for the vehicles "ADD/MODIFY" option.
Let me know how you get on.

That should work out ok then ;)
If you're going off road you may require extended bump stops
What tyres are you going for retreads or branded ?
I am getting another set of GV rims with 205 80 16's for doing competition trials

IF you're buying retreads could you please measure the height of the tyre and let me know how tall they stand :)
thanks Jack

I don't have any plans do go off road in the immediate future.
It will be at some point though.
Just going to be branded tyres, not really needing retreads.

You used to be able to get pre shaped heavy duty strengthened plates for that but I can't remember the last place I saw them.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny
