Windows Movie Maker is free in Windows XP/Vista/7, if not installed should be free download, very easy to use.

I might get to Silverdale with you sometime, I know its a bit of a bog but its not far from me in Crewe, I know Rus from jimnybits gets there from time to time. Shout next time your out.

You can see you have a Rocklobster with the low speed you are able to maintain!

Was the ground hard under the standing water you go through in some of those videos as you didn't seem to have any grip problems at all - I didn't know if that was down to the ground or your tyres being good?

It was good to see your passenger getting out and guiding you through on one of the videos rather than you just plough on regardless - you see people just smashing their trucks up un-necessarily too often because they don;t bother getting out and looking at what they are about to drive or getting their passenger to get out and guide them!

Did you get a winch for the front in the end? If so, what did you plump for?

I have to say I think you did well coming across this Jimny for the money you paid for it - you have a nice truck there!

Hi Kirky - no winch yet - keep breaking bits instead - propshaft, half shaft, brake caliper - got to get it mot'd before tong -will need a new exhaust maybe a cat :unsure:

fancy either a winchmax or a goldfish - hoping there will be some offers on at the T.O.R. show

Think it's fairly solid under the water ( have never got out of the truck to try it) but combination of the difflocks and the tyres are pretty good (run them at about 20 psi) don't get stuck very often except in deep ruts left by leadfoots in lr's with 37" tyres - them my trusty co-driver is hot stuff with the entrenching tool - the site can get slippy after heavy rain as it is marl/clay under the topsoil

I would go for the Goldfish or another of David Bowyers winches as they are good winches with a good spares back up from David and he is a helpful chap - just don;t call him if you don't have much time to spend on the phone!

One other benefit of buying his winches new is the fact that you can get a bowrope and hawse fairlead in the deal rather than the steel cable for much less than you could buy any other rope worth having seperately.

Just got word it passed it's MOT - yippee :laugh:

had to replace the rear exhaust from the cat back - it was made up of about five different exhausts welded together and it was all welded to the chassis !

just need to sort the front prop now as there is 1/2" play in one of the UJs :angry:

god its been an expensive 9 months - still lots to sort yet
