Not bad considering the bits on it .. but it is only a "Y" Reg, huh, and i bet its done some miles?

I take it, its had some 4x4'ing offroad use? So, maybe some TLC in the garage to check everything is sound?

You've done well - as long as it's not full of rust - all those bits are expensive!!! Looks like it had a Warn 8274 on the front given the cut out on the bonnet and the sticker!

That would have been as powewrful as the engine! It could have dragged it's self about rather than driven!

When you get a winch, have a measure up width wise as it looks like your bumper requires the winch to sit between the chassis rails rather than on them and winches with external brakes may not fit! My Superwinch doesn't and had to go on top.

Have fun with your new toy!!!

I have no idea what the ratio is on the transfer box is?

but i can get out and walk faster than it crawls forwards (when my dad is driving it)

I have a WARN M8000 - its good! Of course not as good as the 8274 .. but a smaller and neater fit, and with Plasma its lighter .. and half the price!
