    Does your gearbox temp light come on due to the 33s?
    And those BFGoodriches are they the KM3 ones?

    Thanks guys I love it, I'm just about to clean up the axles flush the ep90 and replace all the wheel hub/bearings. Does anyone know a good place to get the brake shields from? 2 of mine have fell(rusted) off and now is a good time to get it sorted...

    Hi mate I think they are KM2's I have towed a 16.2 hands horse with trailer combined approx 1400kg with these tyres over 100 miles and the gearbox temp light has never come on before now. I'm hoping it's the sensor, it is random when it does come on.

    Hi guys a little update for you with a couple of pictures taken recently. I have removed the tow bar in preparation of the rear chassis being replaced. I will probably be fitting a 2" receiver hitch in favour of the original tow bar which was a huge lump! Not much else going on really, the Mrs gets her new Land Rover at the weekend so that's where we are at right now. Still lots to do but as is always the case time is never on our side...

    I assume you have +3" flatdog arches?

    Shame about the chassis :(

    Thank you, yes they are flatdog arches. The chassis is typical D2... BIPOLAR!
